The One Perfect Strobing Product You Need In Your Makeup Drawer Is Benefit's Watt's Up Highlighter

If you follow beauty trends at all, you've probably heard about the next big thing in makeup, strobing. Actually strobing is basically the opposite of contouring — instead of applying matte bronzer to the shadow areas on your face like you do when you contour, you apply highlighter to all of the places light hits your face, giving you an ethereal, dewy glow. Strobing is way easier than contouring, and there's only one product you need to strobe your face to perfection: Benefit's Watt's Up highlighter.

The easy-to-apply Benefit Watt's Up highlighter makes strobing even less complicated. All you have to do is apply the cream-to-powder forumla directly to your cheekbones, brow bones, down your nose, the center of your chin and the center of your forehead, and then lightly tap it and blend it with your fingers or the built-in blender. Voila! You now have beautiful, glowing, dewy skin and it only took a few seconds and one product! It's also great because you don't have to use a billion different highlighters and feel like your face is caked in makeup.

The Benefit Watt's Up highlighter is available at specialty beauty retailers like Sephora and Ulta, and probably in Benefit's beauty kiosks at the airports, because you know you need something to give your skin a pick me up after flying. It costs $30 and will last you forever. If you're a little hesitant to invest that much in a beauty product you've never tried, you can usually find a sample size of Watt's Up for about $8. All of the shimmer without the commitment!
