Take your skin from sun-smooched to supertan by combining with Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Bronzing Powder.

Birchbox Breakdown

If we had three beauty wishes, we’d ask for killer cheekbones, glowing skin, and a professional lighting crew wherever we went. Since not all daydreams end happily ever after, we rely on this wondrous product instead. A beauty editor fave, Benefit's Sun Beam is a golden bronze highlighter that subtly defines and contours your features.

How it Works

This liquid illuminator comes in a soft golden bronze hue that instantly flatters your features. It softly reflects light for a spotlight effect while giving skin a dewy finish.

How to Use

Use the brush or your fingertips to paint a small amount on cheekbones, brow bones, and anywhere you want to add definition. Blend quickly. You can also mix a couple drops with your moisturizer or foundation for a dewy, radiant sheen.

Nice and Subtle

Nice, subtle coloring to it - makes you bronze without it being streaky. It is a nice illuminator for the day time - but if you like the really strong highlight look, opt for Benefit High Beam

just a touch more color than I wanted!

I am VERY fair so when I put this product on it made my skin look almost too brown for me. I'm so used to being fair with opalescent skin that putting on a bronzer is just not my style. Perhaps I will try it again and see if I can make myself look more like me with the bronzer.

Love it!

I love this highlighter! It gives a you a good glow, with a little bit of bronzing. I usually just pat it on my cheekbones and above my eyebrows. Great for summer!
