All About That Face: Glowing Skin w/ Strobing & Contouring

I decided to use all the highlighters…

When my good friend and amazingly talented musician Dale LePage asked me if I wanted to use his song, How She Shines, in a video I knew I was going to go a little overboard with the shimmer.  I’ve been wanting to do a look for a long time that just focused on glowing skin w/ strobing & contouring while keeping the eyes and lips neutral and matte.  Most of my looks are a matte or slightly shimmery face with bold eyes and/or lips with lots of sparkle and shine.

I wanted to strobe, but I also wanted to contour… which is apparently a mortal sin when strobing.  But I contoured with shimmer… ahh, a loophole in the strobing universe! With so much going on on the face, I kept the eyes simple, only using the matte shades in my new Naked Smoky palette, and stayed with a mauve nude matte liquid lipstick…

    I loved the makeup, I just don’t know why but I think the bronzer on the forhead is a little bit loaded!

    Besides all that, I loved it πŸ˜‰

      Thanks! I did go a little heavy with the bronzer… it looked okay under my lights, but when I was editing I realized it was a bit much… I gotta blend, baby, blend πŸ™‚

    love this look, very beautiful! love how you incorporated the strobing technique with contouring! I don’t think it needs to be one or the other both looks amazing!

      You’re so right, they both work so well together… we shouldn’t have to choose πŸ™‚

    I need to get in on all those highlighting products. I am interested in the Hourglass palette, but I’m not sure I’d use all the colors. So pretty. I love that you went super crazy with the highlight and kept the eyes neutral.

      It doesn’t take much to convince me to go crazy with highlighter πŸ™‚

    This is such a beautiful look!! I think it was the film star bronze&glow that I’m drooling over though. The one in the black compact? I love that color and it looks beautiful on your skin. Do you think it would work on a skin tone like mine?

      Thanks so much! The Film Star Bronze & Glow is the highlighter and sculptor in the gold double compact. That now comes in a compact for darker skin tones as well as this lighter one. The Kat Von D shade and light is great for all skin tones because it has such a variety of shades. The Becca Champagne Pop highlighter was made for fair skin, but I’ve seen many different skin toned ladies using it and it always looks gorgeous.

    Once again, a gorgeous look! I think I already told you this, but you are making me want that Hourglass palette!
