Hello! :D I notice lately that the new trend STROBING is coming (saw it on @morphebrushes's instagram) and I've been wondering what products that are good to achieve that glowy look. Could you please recommend great illuminating/glowing products? Preferably drug store. Thanks in advance :D

Strobing is basically highlighting without contouring. The aim of “strobing” is to bring out your features using light instead of using shadows/dark like with contouring.

It’s basically highlighting and achieving dewy skin but now in a trend. Strobing claims itself as anti contouring or getting the look of contouring without using dark shades making it easy for beginners and being soft enough for every day for those who wear more minimal makeup. 

You can add light to the skin by using light reflecting concealers and/or shimmer highlights. Using both will give you the most dramatic effect.
