perhaps my most favorite makeup product



Heellllo lovelies. 

TGIF am I right? RIGHT. Nevermind that I don't feel so swell this morning, that is neither here nor there.

Remember this girl? 


Pshhh, that was a ridiculous question. Anyhoo, her skin always be FLAWLESS and those cheeks, that shimmer to DIE for! So I made it my pesonal mission to attain her cheeky glow. And because I love you all, I feel you need to be aware as well. 

Blog friends, meet Benefit High Beam.  Ta da… miracle in a bottle. 


Moral of the story is benefit high beam+smashbox shimmer+nars orgasm blush= 'oh my goodness you are Carrie Underwood' cheeks. ;) 


Have a great weekend beauties!

Sassy said...

I love High Beam! And a bottle lasts for-freakin'-ever. I'm actually kind of scared to think how long I've had mine. Good stuff. :)

P.S.- Totes got Essie French Affair on my nails today and thought of yooooou.

Susan said...

lovely! You found the secret. Thanks for sharing!

Raquel said...

I have this stuff and it's amaazziiingggg! Love it love it love it

Lindsey said...

This video made me so happy, you are so cute and I need the shimmer stat.

More importantly ... I can't believe you went out last night, woke up, showered, put make up on and did your hair. Seriously. Do you know what I do when I go out the night before? Wake-up, douse myself with VS body spray to mask the stale smoke stank, put make up on in the car and finish at my desk and chug gatorade. You make me proud.

Lindsey said...

oh and who am I kidding ... I do that every day minus the stale smoke stank part.

Southern in the City said...

I absolutely *love* high beam, and really anything by benefit! looking gorg as always, have a wonderful weekend!

I use all those plus Shell Cream Blush by MAC you should try that one it's amazing!

safire said...

Amazing! It would be hard to pick my favorite make-up product but it would have to be my black eyeliner from Anna Sui :)

English said...

I am OBSESSED with this stuff. Benefit can do no wrong in my opinion.

French Lover said...

I love that you love makeup as much as I do !! And the beautiful Carrie, too :D

I love highlighters & I would definitely recommend the Nars multiple in Copacabana. It's kind of like High Beam but it's a stick and it's creamy but it leaves a powdery finish once it's blended. The highlight it gives is perfect : not too shimmery, not too light. I LOOOOVE it !! Plus it's so convenient for traveling ! J'adore !!

Bisous !!

Sasha said...

I have a bottle and have never tried it... but now I will! Thanks for the tips!

Katie said...

I have been using High Beam for a while now and love it just as much as day 1 :) It is the perfect glow..you look fab with it on! I sometimes put some on my eyelids too!

Annie said...

Seriously your vlog is too cute. You should do more of those - they help us non beauty professionals!

I have some highlighting makeup from clinique that gives the same shine - love it. I think you just inspired me to pull it back out for the summer!

Shalyn said...

Shoooooooooooot girl.

I want some! :)

I wonder what would happen if I put it on my other cheeks...could be a new thing ya know? ;)

Gorgeous as always.

Delaney said...

I've had this stuff for years! I love it! You can also use it on your eyes to make your shadows stick better :)

Pretty in Pink said...

nars albatross is good as well as the nars multiple that someone mentioned above. also, mac makes a great shimmer setting powder to put all over- makes for glowy skin in pictures!

miss andrea lee said...

I love that combo! Been wearing both for years! Looks great on you, just like Carrie :)

Holly said...

Gorgeous!! I love slightly pink shimmery cheeks, I may try this :) Happy Friday!

Reese and Leigh said...

I just watched this at work and it made my day. I want to buy every single one of these products. AND you are SO TAN- jealous!!

Hailey said...

GamecockQueen said...

LOVE!! I will have to try that. I use Benetint b/c I love how it doesn't really wear off like other blushes. I will have to give this a go! Gorgeous. I LOVE your blog btw!!

Maura said...

melissa said...

How cute are you?!?! I'm serious about this gig with a magazine. I'm thinking a beauty feature in the print magazine and videos on their website. Because seriously, you are too cute on video.

And I love today's tip. So simple even I could pull it off. And that's saying something!

Have a great weekend! xoxo

Lauren said...

In college, I used to wear Benefit all the time. Except I had the yellow. Moon Bean, maybe?

You've reminded me. Now I have to get some.

Ummm, so when are you going to come to Memphis and teach me how to poof?!?!? This homegirl has a lot of hair, but since it's so fine, it makes it thin really. I NEED a poof:)
