Holy Grail Highlighter: Benefit’s High Beam

Welcome to the Holy Grail series! I hope you’re all as excited as I am 🙂 We all have holy grails of beauty- they are products you swear by. You probably want to change things up and try something new often, but ultimately you repurchase your signature products. They just do everything right and never fail to make you feel pretty.


I decided to choose a highlighter because contouring is only getting more popular. High Beam by Benefit is a highlighter that I keep going back to. I’ve been trying a few others recently, but this one always delivers the best look.


1. It looks so natural and gorgeous. When the light catches you- OOMPH!

2. It is easy to apply and blend- I like to just dot it along my cheekbones.

3. It can be applied on top of powder foundation, which is great since I use BareMinerals.

4. It lasts forever. Actually. I’ve had the same bottle for ages because you only need to use a small amount!

5. It gives you the most gorgeous irridescent finish that a powder highlight isn’t as good at.

Do you guys have a holy grail highlighter??

  1. Right now I’m loving Becca’s shimmering skin perfecters (the liquid ones), but they get a little weird over powder. They still shine under setting powder, but I am very interested in high beam! Thank you for this series, I’m excited for it. 🙂
