WHY KELSEY’S SUCH A FAN OF STROBING
“Contouring became a trend because of the dramatic effect it has on the face. Strobing is the opposite of contouring to achieve the same effect with fewer products — you bring out the high points on your face like the cheekbones, and by doing that, you de-emphasize other aspects, like the hollows of the cheek.”
