Smart Illumination: NYX Strobe of Genius

19 Sep

NYX Strobe of Genius

If you weren’t born with it, one way to capture the “glowy” skin look is with an illuminating palette that helps to create depth and dimension with light.

The Strobe of Genius palette from NYX Cosmetics comes with seven versatile shades to master the art of strobing (or highlighting).

Even though the palette looks like an explosion of shimmer, the shades are surprisingly soft and flattering without leaving a heavy finish.

The palette contains cool and warm tones that go beyond basic white and pink, including:

  • Top Row: Gold, champagne, lilac, rose gold (cool)
  • Bottom Row: Copper, bronze, ivory (warm)

If you’re keen on strobing through the fall, this could be your go to kit with so many possibilities (plus you can use the shades as eye shadow, bronzer, or blush).

Since the formula is buttery smooth, you can even apply your favorite shade to the top of the lips (cupid’s bow) or the center of the bottom lip for fuller-looking lips.

I’m not sure whether I’ll ever be a genius at strobing, but I love the subtle glow that I was able to create with this palette, especially with the brightening lilac 💜 shade.

TIP: For a lighter touch, use a fan brush to apply the shades in this palette.

    This looks pretty and you can use the shades as eyeshadows too if you want. Right now I’m into non-conventional highlighter shades, like in the ABH Moonchild palette. Helloooo blue highlight! 😂

      Oh oh, the ABH palette looks very interesting :). Even though the shades in the NYX palette are a bit different, they’ve turned to be some of the nicest ones that I’ve tried.
