Benefit Sun Beam Review 

Benefit Sun Beam Review 

Hello everyone, as many of you know I adore Benefit’s products and today I am going to be helping you get Spring/Summer ready with the power of Benefit Sun Beam. What do we all need for a perfect summer makeup look? I vote for bronze healthy looking dewy skin. 

What is Benefit Sun Beam?

Sun Beam Golden Bronze Complexion Highlighter is very versatile products that can be used in different ways. The aim of the product is to give your skin a bronze shimmery look. It helps to give a natural-looking, sun-kissed radiance.

It comes in a gold box with shimmering palm trees on the front. It comes in a small gold bottle with a white screw on applicator lid. It is a gold/bronze to look at and is silky smooth to the touch.

There are a couple of different application methods to applying this product. The directions on the box are to dot and blend after makeup on the cheek and brow bones. I, however, use this product slightly differently. I first apply primer to my skin. Next, I apply the Sun Beam all over my face excluding lips, eyes/under eye areas. I then carry on with the rest of my makeup routine.After the Sum Beam is applied I apply my Hello Flawless foundation with a damp beauty blender. This allows me to achieve perfect even skin tone. By adding the Sun Beam prior to foundation application I find that this adds a healthy looking glow to my skin, which is currently very trendy. We call this trend dewy skin. This illuminates my face and gives me that just back of holiday look.

 What do I like about Benefit Sun Beam?

I love this product as you can use it in many ways. Not only do I use this product on my entire face I also go back after I have completed my makeup to highlight the cheek and brow bones alongside the cupids bow. I love the way this product glides onto my face and is silky smooth to touch. i also apply Sun Beam on my shoulders when wearing an off the shoulder top.

      Hi Kelly,
      At the moment Benefit is my favourite makeup brand. Not only I love the quality of the products, but also the marketing strategy, packaging and Benefit’s team x
      If you are looking for bronzer, blush and concealer at the moment I love:
      Bronzer – Hoola by Benefit or Charlotte Tilburry Filmstar bronze and highlight palette
      Blush – Rockateur by Benefit or blushes from MAC
      Concealer – Stay don’t Stray from Benefit. I don’t use any other at the moment.
      Hope it helps x

    This was my first highlighter and the bottle lasted me almost two years and I should really repurchase it! It’s seriously pretty and thank you for reminding me about it.
