Highlighting the face, or another term strobing, is when you only use an illuminizer/highlighter to emphasize the high points of the face. This minimalistic technique creates a ‘glowy’ from within look.
It is a very easy look to achieve, once you perfect the technique, especially using the latest ‘illuminator sticks’ found in beauty shops all over.

The three shades of these stick blend into one healthy rosy slightly shimmery effect finish, stroke onto the skin and blend with fingers to create a French 18th century aristocratic Marie-Antoinette effect.
To get a really dewy, glowing finish, an important factor to start off with is making sure your skin is well moisturised, otherwise the stick wont slide well, and probably end up with a dry looking patch of colour on the skin.
You can apply the glowing stick either directly onto the skin, for a carefree outdoor look, or on top of your foundation, if you prefer a more evened out coverage finish.
