Get a Healthy Glow: Highlighters

Ever wonder how celebrities all get that healthy, radiant glow? Most likely, it's because their makeup artist is using a face illuminator, like Benefit's High Beam and Moon Beam complexion highlighters. These products can be used as spot enhancers or blended all over your face for a glowing, sexy look. High Beam is a satiny pink shine, while women with olive or tan skin tones should opt for Moon Beam, which gives skin a more natural, golden-pink glow. Both cost $22 and are available here and here.

To learn how to use highlighters,

To apply highlighters such as Benefit's High Beam, use these simple tips:

  • First, be sure to pick the right color for your skin tone. Women with blue undertones should use a pinkish color like High Beam, and if your skin is more yellow, use a golden color.
  • With the nail polish-like brush, draw an X on the apple of each of cheek and beneath each brow.
  • Using your fingertips, blend the Xs in an upward and outward circular motion.
  • For an all-over dewy effect, try mixing just a dab of highlighter into your foundation or moisturizer.
