Strobing technique for a Lion that… shines
The strobing it is a much appreciated technique, even by celebrities, which is considered a valid substitute for contouring (of which it represents practically the opposite) to enhance the details and lines of the face without creating unattractive color spots.
The term derives from the concept of “strobe light”, Ie that deriving from intermittent sources.
This practice, in fact, is designed to create a “flash” effect on the face, which shines in an attractive way. And it can only be perfect for the Leo woman, who loves to always be shiny, even in hairstyles.
How strobing is created
For strobing to be flawless you need to create one homogeneous base first applying a smoothing primer (possibly in cream, which in summer is more suitable because it allows the skin to transpire better), then a foundation or a CC or BB cream, taking care to spread the color evenly. Now is the time to light up with a cream blush with highlighter to create a shiny look.
This technique is also perfect for showing beautiful highlights when you need to take shots. Thanks to strobing, in fact, your face in the photo is more three-dimensional and sparkling and less flattened: a make-up proof for shooting or selfies!
However, there are three cases in which it is better to avoid strobing
- If you have the round face, strobing will further enhance it, so we recommend using the contouring technique which instead makes the contours of the face more angular.
- If you have many hairs on the face, you risk accentuating them even more, illuminating them and highlighting them well.
- When it particularly does heat and especially if you have combination or oily skin, the chances that sweat will shine your skin are already high. Creating other bright areas on the face will certainly not be an aesthetic choice.
Orange or red lipstick if you want to create a focus on the lips that reflects the bold and cheerful character of the Lion
The alternative to intense eye make-up with warm nuances is a nude make-up on the eyes and a bright and strong lipstick on the mouth. In fact, this look reflects a bold, strong woman who is not afraid to dare, much less to be observed.
The red lipstick is a great classic that never goes out of style and goes well with any outfit, from the most casual and basic to the most sophisticated.
Alternatively, why not try dyeing your lips an intense, almost vitamin-like orange, perfect especially for bringing out the tan? This color represents strength, courage and even joy, characteristics that undoubtedly belong to the sign of Leo!
