Let's ignore my stunning, totally real blue-green eyes and focus on the matter at hand. What's the secret to glowing skin? Is it Inner Peace? Happiness? Kindness? Nope.

It's highlight. Lots of highlight.

Also known as 'Strobing,' this finish has become rather popular this year. A strong glow for dewy skin. I made a quick step-by-step Strobing Tutorial a year ago. I thought I would revisit the concept and improve on it. This time, focusing on creating a strong strobe with a warmer finish.

So here is my revamped Strobing Tutorial! How to Achieve Glowing, Dewy Skin!

The main focus of this tutorial is skin.

Achieving dewy, glowing skin that many are vying for in the midst of all this highlight/contour Makeup trends. Personally, I like glowing skin but not necessarily to this extent. Though it is still beautiful. To enforce the focus, I kept the eyes and lips natural. Ish.

As natural as a Bratz doll can look.

Never let me wear contacts again. Yikes.

I started singing Barbie Doll as soon as I saw myself in the mirror.

That said, it was quite fun to see the reactions people provide when you step out looking plastic. But the pretty kind of plastic. The ones that won't degrade after 1000 years.

Have you tried strobing? What's your favourite type of skin finish?
