Benefit Sun Beam

Benefit Sun Beam

Available from Benefit for £19.50

I am sure you have all heard of Benefits infamous highlighter 'Sun Beam'. It is a bronze highlighter which is perfect for a Summer glow. It is aimed to give off a sunkissed radiance to the face, mainly the brow and cheek bones. It has been suggested to use with your fingers instead of applying straight to your face with the brush.
The product does blend nicely onto the skin and does last well through - out the day.
Personally, I have very pale skin (sob) and the highlighter for me is way too dark. I am sure it would look fantastic on other skin tones, but unfortunately doesn't work great for me. I have tried using it as a bronzer instead though, and it looks alright! A little shimmery but workable. If you are a pale girly like me I would recommend trying it as a bronzer instead as it works a lot better for me that way, anyway.

Have you tried any Benefit highlighters? Which would you suggest for a pale girly like me?

  1. I prefer 'High Beam' from Benefit as a highlighter because I'm pale as well :)
