Beauty: The Strobing vs. Contouring Hype

To strobe or to contour, that is the question.

Between the two of us, we each prefer our own make-up trend to use for our faces. Strobing for Dani and Contouring for Shea. However, what are the pros/cons and ins/outs of each one?

Strobing focuses on highlighting the points on your face where light would naturally hit. Those places are:
--> Cheek bone
--> Brow bone
--> Center of forehead
--> Down your nose
--> Chin


Benefits of Strobing:
--> Gives you a healthy glow. 
 --> Quick and easy.

Cons of Strobing:
