Benefit Beams!



Swatches:


Being a massive fan of highlighters, I have tried and tested many brands, these Benefit Beams are my top pick for liquid highlighters. They are very light-weight, easy to use and give a beautiful natural glow to the cheekbones. 
They come in a 13ml bottle and last forever-I have mine for well over a year now and still have loads left! 

High Beam:


High Beam is probably the most popular of the beam family and is an irredecent pink liquid highlight which gives a gorgeous dewy glow to the skin. 
This works well on all skin types and is more sheer than shimmery and find it's the most natural of the 3, great for everyday use. (As you can see I use it a lot!)

Sun Beam


Sunshine in a bottle! This golden bronze highlight gives a luminous sun kissed shimmer to the cheeks. It is best suited to medium skin tones or during the summer whilst you have a tan.

Moon Beam:


Moon beam is very similiar to High beam except is has a yellow based apricot tone. Also where the High beam gives quite a pastel sheer glow, this gives a more warm peachy glow to the skin. This again is suitable for all skin tones.


*All the Beams come in a Nail polish type bottle with a brush applicator attached.
Use after foundation but before powder, just apply 2 or 3 dots along the top of the cheekbones, under the brow bone & Cupid's bow. Blend in with fingers using a tapping motion.

TIP: For a more dramatic evening highlight, use a same toned powdered highlighter ontop of where you placed the liquid!

Happy Highlighting! :)
