I’m in love with luminizing/highlighting products and have quite a few. My two favorites being Benefit High Beam and Smashbox Artificial Light in Flash. They both give you that healthy natural glow without making you look like a grease ball. And for someone with oily skin that’s not an easy thing to achieve.
As you can see in the photo above the Smashbox product is slightly darker than the Benefit product and I like to use them in different ways. Artificial Light is wonderful to mix in with your liquid foundation or moisturizer for an all over glow. I like to apply high beam just on the cheekbones and cupids bow for that perfect highlight. They call it “supermodel in a bottle” for a reason!
Artificial Light is $24.00 for a 0.7 oz bottle. High Beam is $24.00 for a 0.45 oz bottle. Both at Sephora.com.
So which one do I prefer? I love them both, but if you only have room for one in your makeup collection I would say I reach for high beam more often. They’re both awesome though and you really can’t go wrong with either one.
Have you tried either of these products? Which one do you prefer?
