What colour strobe cream should I use?

Strobe cream is amazing product and definitely a makeup bag essential! This glorious product hydrates, illuminates and clarifies skin with a mega-dose of vitamins and green tea. Its iridescent particles reflect light for a revitalised, radiant glow. Strobe Cream comes in 4 different tones, Silverlite, Pinklite (the original), Peachlite and Goldlite. Silverlite and Pinklite both have a cooler undertone to them whilst Peachlite and Goldlite both have much more wamth to them. For pale to very fair skin tones I would reach for Silverlite or Pinklite, and for medium to dark skin tones with golden undertones, Goldlite is going to be your bestfriend! Peachlite is a very universal tone and works well with the majority of different skintones so if you're fair and want a touch of warmth or have a richer complexion that wants more of a sublte glow, Peachlite will be a match made in complexion heaven! Strobe cream can be worn alone to enhance your natural glow; apply directly to skin with fingertips or a 109S Brush.

For more intensity, add Strobe Cream on top of foundation or for a subtler glow wear it under make-up for that added boost of flawlessness. You can even try wearing multipule shades of strobe together for a strobe ombre effect! Being a super multi-purpose product why not try mixing Strobe Cream with your favourite liquid or cream foundation for a natural glow. This luminous moisturiser even doubles as a liquid highlighter, brightening your look with iridescent particles, adding the softest glow to your skin whether you're in the sunlight or spotlight. As well as smoothing and hydrating your skin, Strobe Cream is also dermatologist tested, ophthalmologist tested and non-acnegenic.
