3. Add Final Light Reflection

Make an oval path and fill it with black & white Gradient
and place it on top of the circles. Note if your color setting
is CMYK, make sure the black for the gradient is full black(C=100,
M=100, Y=100, K=100). With the oval path selected, go to Transparency pallate, select Screen Blend Mode. If your Transparency is not showing, go to Window > Transparency or press Ctrl+Shift+F10.
