DIAMOND strobing powder
Strobing means highlighting. You want to “strobe” your face’s high points: your cheek bones, brow bone (and just above your arches), chin, Cupid’s bow, and the bridge of your nose. Steer clear of your inner cheeks: the sides can be glowing and illuminated, but if it wraps around to the front, it’ll appear greasy.
Try mixing Diamond with a rich moisturizer for a lit-from-within finish. Apply on top of makeup on cheekbones. The texture reflects light and mimics the dewy radiance you get from the gym. Dab Diamond on the inner corners of your eyes to wake up eyes.
