Benefit's High Beam

I got this highlighter as part of a Christmas present from Kevin's mom about two years ago and to be honest I never really liked it that much until recently. In the summer months, I really like that bronzed and glowy highlighted look when applying my make up. I found this in my make up bag about 2 months ago and decided to give it a go and I haven't stopped using it since! It is AMAZING! I usually apply my foundation and concealer and then put a little bit of the high beam on the tops of my cheek bones, underneath my eyebrows, a little bit down the centre of my nose and lastly on my cupid's bow. I then let it set (I'd usually go fill in my brows or do my eye make up now) before putting on powder.

The product comes in a nail polish type bottle and applicator. It is very highlighted though so I only use the tiniest amount. You can add the tiniest amount to give a really subtle glow or you can add a bit more if you want a more dramatic look. It does tend to dry quickly so I don't tend to put it all on at once or it just stains my face and looks blotchy. I start off by putting it on one cheek bone and blending it in before moving on to the other areas I want to highlight. Because I only use such a small amount, I can definitely see it lasting for ages. This has definitely been my new summer must have!
