4 Strobing Beauty Secrets Every Lazy Girl Should Know

Posted on

Attention: Heavy makeup is out! Less-is-more beauty has taken over the faces of Hollywood, and even Contour Queen Kim Kardashian West is now all about nontouring.

If you still want to accentuate your features but your idea of #MOTD goals involves a more natural, Gigi Hadid-like glow, then we’ve got the ultimate solution — and it only takes seconds to apply.

Strobing is a fancy beauty term for adding highlighter to all the right places and letting sunlight do the rest of the work. We’ve rounded up our top must-haves for sculpting and amplifying a fresh-and-bare sun-kissed face. They can also be worn over your foundation for work or a night out. And the best part? They’re universally flattering and entirely fuss-free.
