Purple, Blush, & Champagne: Strobing

Today I neglected the Bronzer and went for the Strobe!!
Strobing is a way to contour the face with Highlight using spotlighting
instead of Shadows to feature the contours of the face. 
I went heavy on the highlight and heavy on the blush then made sure
to blend it out but keep everything under the cheekbone blank.
Loved the outcome!! Here's how I did it.
