Beam of Light


It’s mid-summer and I am looking out my window at the San Francisco sky enveloped once again in a blanket of fog. We San Franciscans need a little extra something to brighten our days during the summer. A weekend trip to a warmer coastal town (Santa Cruz, I’m looking at you), or a daily dose of Vitamin D might do the trick, but for an even simpler solution I turn to a fabulous product made by Benefit, called High Beam—a lustrous pink liquid highlighter that illuminates whatever part of your face you would like to enhance. I use it on my cheek bones, in the corners of my eyes, and on my brow bones. Its creamy texture makes it easy to apply and you only need to use a small amount to achieve an instant glow.

You can find High Beam at Sephora.
