You could put a light anywhere you want. A face light isn't anything fancy.  It's just a spherical prim made transparent and set to be a light source.  You can make one easily, if you are in a place where you can rez objects, like a sandbox.

(1) Open your Build Edit tool (CTRL + 3) and select the rezzing tool (looks like a magic wand -- top row)

(2) Select the sphere icon from the row right below it.

(3) Rez a sphere by left-clicking on the ground.

(4) Click the "Features" tab in the Build Edit tool, and then click the box that says "Light".  That makes the sphere into a light source.  You can play with the Intensity, Radius, and Falloff settings to change how bright it is and how far away it shines.

(5) Click the "Texture" tab and change Transparency from zero (its normal setting) to 100.  That will make your shining sphere invisible.

See?  Now you have a face light ... or a shoe light.  Click  the "General" tab and give your face light a name, then take it to your inventory.  You can Wear it on your chin or your nose, and you can use your edit tool to move it around once its attached there. (If you can't see it, type CTRL + Alt + T to make it glow red temporarily.)

Making it a shoe light instead of a face light is really easy. If you have mod permission on your shoes, just use your Build Edit tool to link the light to your shoe.  If you don't (or if you don't feel confident about linking), then Wear your face ball on your Lower Leg.  (Right click on it in your inventory and select Attach To... >> Lower Leg.)  That's it.

As building projects go, this is a pretty simple one, and it's kinda fun.  If you don't get it right the first time, try again. Then teach someone else.  :smileywink:

See my response in IM. You aren't making it light by right clicking on it. You are selecting it and seeing the selection highlight. A face light is not like a flashlight. Don't expect to see a beam. A face light makes YOU light up by brightening everything within the radius you have set in it. It doesn't make ITSELF brighter.
