Starlight, Highlight

Posted on 29 April 2016

From contouring to “strobing”, here’s a fresh new take from OFRA on highlighting!

“Strobing” is a more minimalistic highlighting technique with illuminator as opposed to contouring and slimming the face down with a sun-kissed glow. You focus on the highpoints of your features and it does not matter if you are tan or porcelain pale - the end results will be the same.

Strobing is best achieved using a crème, liquid or powder to enhance the highpoints on your face where the light naturally hits, creating a mirrored glowing effect. “Strobing” is a technique meant to play with light and textures so that your skin looks radiant and luminous without the need of bronzers and too many other products for a beautiful, natural makeup look.

(IG beauties: @k_asmussen, @gabyteemua, & @anielyzzaf using our @DupeThat x OFRA highlighters for some beautiful natural & glam looks!)

Start with your favorite OFRA foundation and proceed with a highlighter applying to the bridge of the nose, cheekbones, cupids bow, chin and above the brow bone.
