How to get dewy skin with M.A.C Strobe cream Pictorial

1. Before

2. Apply Strobe cream all over the face

3. Apply your foundation with your beauty blender

4. Apply your concealer where needed also to highlight apply on the chin, cupids bow, nose onto the forehead and cheekbones and set with powder.

5. Apply a bronzer with your stipple brush, I like to use a cream bronzer for this look and add a pea sized amount of moisturizer to it to add to the highlighted look.

6. Apply more Strobe cream to the chin,cupids bow, apples of cheeks up onto the cheekbones, the forehead above the arch of the eyebrows and a small amount on the nose and you’re done!

If you want to add some extra highlight, I recommend Illamasqua illuminators on the cheekbones and brow bones.

How to Contour & highlight pictorial

  1.  Before photo
  2. Contour using a large angle brush down the cheekbones, where the face sinks in the deepest, temples, under the jaw, beside the eyes and down the sides of the nose. Don’t worry about it being messy, it will be blended in later.
  3. Using a concealer, two shades lighter than your own skin, highlight under the eyes and along the cheekbone, down the bridge of the nose and up onto the forehead, the cupids bow ( above the lip), brow bone and your chin
  4. Using a stippling brush or foundation brush apply your foundation over the top blending all three products together.
  5. If you want more of a sharper contour then use a straight edge such as a ruler place it against your face for a guidline and apply more of the product, focusing more toward the hairline and blending down no further than half way down your cheek
  6. The finished look
