Benefit Dandelion Shy Beam Matte Highlighter

The beauty pendulum is swinging back. Contouring has had its time in the spotlight — and now, highlighting is taking center stage. Think of it is a complement, not a competitor, because as you may already know, contouring and highlighting often go hand in hand (and often get offered up in the same compact). But leave it to Benefit to give highlighting a cheeky twist. You may be used to glitter, shimmer and shine in a highlighter, but the San Francisco-based brand is offering up a Benefit Dandelion Shy Beam Matte Highlighter ($26), a subtle take on the beauty world’s latest obsession.

So, after you’ve contoured and perfected those cheekbones (and nose, jaw and forehead — hey, we don’t judge), sweep a little bit of Dandelion Shy Beam on your hand and tap it right onto the high points of your face. Think: your upper cheeks, your browbone, the Cupid’s bow and anywhere else you want to bring a little emphasis. Whereas most highlighters gleam with glitter, Benefit’s subtle cream is shimmer-free and leaves a natural sheen wherever you tap it on. It’s a grown-up, sophisticated way to shine bright, sans actual shine. Plus, it comes in Benefit’s signature nail-polish-inspired bottle, so it’ll sit pretty on your vanity, too. Let everyone else mess with those powders and compacts, because this easy highlight will be our new go-to.

Available at Sephora.
