REVIEW | HIGH BEAM BY BENEFIT

March 18, 2016

Hey girls,

Since spring is already here, I thought of showing you a product that I love and I think would be great for the season. Because perfect illuminated skin is trending this year, High Beam by Benefit is my best friend.

For an everyday look I don’t want to use a lot of products because my goal is to have an even skin tone and just look fresh. I discovered High Beam last year and I’ve been using it ever since, on day but also night looks.

It comes in 2 options:

  1. High Beam – a rose toned highlighter
  2. Sun Beam – a golden bronze highlighter

I chose the rose one because I think it’s suitable to almost every skin tone. I think the bronzed one is suitable for summer when you’re tanned.

How I use it:

  • If I want to create a dewy complexion, I mix it with my foundation. You’ll get a subtle illuminated skin.
  • When I don’t want to apply foundation, I just mix a little bit with my moisturiser to give my skin a healthy glow. Don’t mix too much though 😉
  • Sometimes I use it just for highlight and I think it makes a subtle difference when you’re wearing and everyday look. After you apply your foundation, just dot and blend high beam where the light naturally hits your face: cheekbones, brow bone, cupid’s bow, down the nose.

TIP: for an everyday look, try to avoid contouring your face. Contouring is more suitable for an elaborated evening look. Try to keep your makeup as natural as possible.

Here how it looks before and after blending:
