How to Use MAC Strobe Cream – 4 Different Ways!

There are four ways of using it

1. Use it beneath the foundation

• Moisturize your face well. Then take a very little amount of strobe cream and apply it all over the face using your hand or a foundation/ buffing brush.

2. Mix it with the foundation

• In order to make a matte finish foundation or any foundation dewy, add a drop of strobe cream to it. Then apply the foundation on your face using finger or foundation brush.

3. Make foundation a shade lighter or give it different undertones

• In order to alter the shade of your foundation, add a small drop of strobe cream to it. Mix it well and then apply the foundation on the face.
• But remember that it will also change the properties of your foundation and make it dewy.

4. Apply on highlighting areas

• This application method is best for people with oily skin who have unknowingly bought this product.
• After applying the foundation take drop of strobe cream and apply it on the highlighting areas such as the area right above the eye brows, middle of the eyebrows, down the centre of the nose, middle of your upper lip, middle of the chin and right above the cheek bone. Apply it in a patting motion using a finger or small concealing brush.
• For people with oily skin apply it only on the cheek bones and right above the eyebrows.
