In The Spotlight: MUA Strobe & Glow

When it comes to contouring, we’re big fans of switching it up come the spring and summer in favour of strobing. Namely because it’s a slightly softer and more illuminated way to enhance your face structure. The technique is to use light reflective products on the high points of your face, in turn creating a bright, healthy and radiant looking complexion.

Helpfully, MUA have launched a compact duo to help us do just this. Containing a golden cream on one side and a pretty luminescent powder on the other, it’s all you need to achieve that sort-after iridescent finish that was seen at time and time again at the spring/summer 2016 shows.

The trick is to apply a little product at a time and slowly build it up. Begin by dabbing the golden cream to your upper cheekbones, temples, along your brow bone and to your cupid’s bow, then blend it out with your fingers. Next, dust a contouring makeup brush in the light-reflecting powder and apply it to the lower cheekbones, bridge of your nose and just above your eyebrows to add further definition and a soft, natural boost in radiance.

Voilà! Dewy, radiant skin will be yours within minutes.
