Benefit High Beam – An oldie but a goodie
First of all I’d like to thank Sarah for trusting me to do a post on her great blog even though I’m only a newbie so it’s a real honour to be able to contribute!
Benefit High Beam is a must have of mine and my highlighter of choice. This highlighter has been a cult classic for a long time and while there have been many great highlighters launched since its arrival; I always come back to it. It’s excellent, reliable and a great staple to have in your make up bag, the make-up equivalent of a little black dress if you will!
High beam is a liquid highlighter that comes in a small bottle. The cap features a brush applicator making the whole effect like a nail polish and very cute. To apply I use the brush to dot two or three tiny dots on the areas I want to highlight and pat with my ring finger until completely blended, although some prefer to use a brush. This is always the last make up I apply aside from my mascara and I usually highlight one area at a time as the product dries very quickly and is hard to blend once dry.
As a highlighter you can use this on all the usual areas you want to highlight like the cheek bones, brow bone, nose, chin, you can also dab a tiny amount on your cupids bow to make your lips appear fuller. Alternatively you can mix a small amount of High Beam with your foundation to provide a subtle illumination giving your complexion a boost of radiance, great on days where your skin is a little dull.
Overall this is a beautiful product that is very subtle and flattering and pretty hard to go wrong with. Benefit also offers two other liquid highlighters, Moonbeam which is a yellow-toned version of the pinky-pearly High beam and Sun Beam which is a golden bronze highlighter, but Benefit is perfect for my skin tone.
It isn’t the cheapest at €27.50 but it lasts forever seriously! So if you love it as so many do then it’s good value for money.
