Add radiance by using Benefit Highlighters


Why should I highlight?

 

Highlighting reflects light off the skin and brings your best features forward. It accentuates cheekbonesbrow bones and even the cupid’s bow. Highlighting can also add light, lift and and glow back to the skin.

 

How do I use a Benefit highlighter?

 

  • High points of the face – cheekbones or sides of forehead.
  • Brow bones, cupid’s bow or corner of the eyes. You can also apply it to the bridge of the nose if you feel it needs widening slightly.
  • Mix it into your favourite body lotion or moisturiser for an all-over glow or just add to the clavicle bones, shoulders, etc.

How do I pick the right Benefit highlighter?

 

The highlighting range from benefit cosmetics adapts to your own skin’s undertone. That means you can’t really go wrong in picking a shade, so don’t be afraid to experiment! There are darker tones that can tint and bronze (or look natural on olive or darker skin tones) or fleshy, beige, golden tones for medium and fair skin tones.

 

Should I use a liquid highligter or a powder highlighter?

 

Liquid creates a dewy hydrated look while powder creates more of a high shine finish. It tends to be recommended for those who are normal to dry and are looking to add a subtle, dewy glow back to the skin.  A liquid is also better for using as a mixer for foundation or for all-over glow.

pressed powder is best for those looking for a more dramatic highlight and have normal to oily skin and is better for targeting specific areas.

 

Use a brush to buff Benefit highlighter on skin

 

Should I use a brush to apply highlighter?

 

A little goes a long way! Try applying highlighter with brush and buff onto the skin. You won’t lose product to the brush and the application will look flawless.
