Our Interview with Danielle Roberts about drobing, the technique that mixes draping and strobing!
Hello, It’s Me: Danielle Roberts.
Danielle is a talented and beautiful Makeup Artist based in central Scotland. Her amazing Youtube Channel is filled with marvelous tutorials, her favorite products of the moment and inspirations.
What’s About: Drobing, as in draping and strobing combined.
Starting from draping (as in sculpting the cheekbones with a touch of color granted by the blush) and strobing (or contouring by highlighting the high points of the face), Danielle will show us her favorite technique 2.0: few products, just three, for a whole new result!
The Glam Squad
– Urban Decay afterglow blush in the shade Crush.
– Nars cream Illuminator in the shade Coco Cabana.
– Urban Decay afterglow Highlight in the shade Aura
This is How I Roll
Shave a little of the Urban Decay blush in Crush onto a mixing palette and add some of the NARS cream illuminator, then mix until the pigments of the blush are completely one with the cream. You should have a beautiful shimmering pink cream blush to apply. Apply to the high cheekbones and up towards the temple, you can use a diffusing brush or, if you prefer the subtle approach, use your fingers.
Once applied, sweep the urban decay highlighter over the top of for the ultimate glow.
Shaving my eyebrows clean off!
It was something I experimented with in my teens. However unsightly it was I do owe my steady hand to masterfully painting on a new set of brows every day for 5 years.
My Favorite On Screen Beauty Look
I was always transfixed by Meryl Streep and Goldie Shawn in “Death Becomes Her”.
I loved the glamour of the decade but the SFX make-up artist in me loved seeing the two characters trying to preserve said glamour and failing!
