Glow On

Warm up your skin this spring by strobing

Does your skin still have a winter-weather hangover? There’s an easy way to fake a glow: strobing. The biggest beauty buzzword isn’t going anywhere, since the trend flatters everyone.

“Pick a shade lighter than your skin tone for the brightest, most popping highlight,” says Michelle Ramos, celebrity makeup artist and cofounder of Rituel de Fille. “Apply to areas of the face that would naturally get touched by the sun. Apply cream-based highlighters with a tapping motion to keep it bright and avoid totally blending into your foundation. Try adding to your cupid’s bow to add a nice pop and definition to the lips—it makes them appear fuller.” Give these highlighters a try.
