Beauty Buzz: Benefit High Beam Highlighter


Benefit High BeamBenefit High Beam Highlighter, $26

Now and then, I look back at a photo of my younger self and wish I knew how pretty I was. I don’t mean that in a bold or egotistical way. In our twenties, we all have that youthful glow. We radiate joy, and the excitement that comes at the beginning of our life’s journey. I see the same radiance in my girls, ages 7 and 5. They wake up in the morning beaming with youth. I wish there were a magic elixir that allows you to maintain the knowledge and bravery that comes with age, but keeps your dewy skin.

Since we’ve yet to find a mystical potion, we turn to Benefit cosmetics for simple products that keep us looking and feeling youthful. We love their Cha Cha tint, their Dandelion blush and, most of all, their High Beam highlighter. If other highlighters felt cakey or “too much like make up” this light as water, creamy product will do the trick. It’s what you want on days that require minimum makeup, morning that you look and feel exhausted or for a date night out when you want to look like your old self.

It’s simple to use. Dab a small about on the areas of your face that would naturally reflect light: forehead, bridge of the nose, and cheekbones. In seconds, you get back the youthful radiance you may be missing.
