Who doesn't love a bargain - especially when you're trying out a trend for the first time? The strobing trend is still going still in the beauty community, but not everyone is as sold as I am. That's totally understandable, but sometimes I think you really have to try a trend to see if it can be believed. Still, nobody wants to spend a fortune on a product they might not get a lot of use out of. If this sounds like you, you might want to keep reading! Enter the Barry M Strobe Cream, the £4.49 strobing companion.
The strobing trend is very simple and it's something you can easily try out at home. I personally think it's a lot more simple than contouring as you only need one product. Plus, it's a lot easier to blend a highlighter than a bronzer. To try out the strobing trend, you simply ditch the contour shade. Instead of balancing the contour and highlighter, you just apply highlighter and lots of it!
Barry M Strobe Cream is exactly what it says on the tin really. It's a handy stick formulation, which you twist up to reveal the product. Simply apply the cream to all the areas of the face where light would naturally hit, for a soft focus strobing finish. I take the stick and draw the cream onto my cheekbones, down the bridge of my nose and under my eyebrows. I blend out the cream with a contour or setting brush and repeat the process. It's one of the products that is easy to build up, so you can use it as a standard highlighter, or you can keep building the product for that full on strobing look.
The Barry M Strobe Cream comes in two different shades, which I've swatch for you below. There is 'Frosty Pink' which as the name suggests, is a soft pink shade. The other shade is 'Iced Bronze' which has a golden finish on the skin. Both shades retail for a tiny £4.49, which is 100% worth it. You're getting a product that is truly handbag friendly and they look gorgeous whatever the weather.
