ALL EYES ON BECCA: BRAND FOCUS ON RADIANT SKIN

Becca brand focus


My love for Becca highlighters has been well documented across all my channels. Cult Beauty’s doing a little 20% off purchase across the brand so I thought, it’s a great time to introduce you to my radiant Becca collection. If you fancy a gorgeous dewy complexion tonight, check out my picks to give you the most incredible base at a click of ‘buy now’ button!



Priming filters.


Other than highlighters, Becca knows how to wow us with foundation primers. Becca's original - Backlight Priming Filter is a stunning champagne shade full of shimmer to give your skin a little something before a foundation. It’s super glowing and dry skin types love this! I find my foundation to last slightly less with it but it gives any drier bases the most glorious glow so I forgive it! Becca First Light Priming Filter with a unique purplish shade is my absolute everyday fave lately. Most foundations look and last brilliant on top of it plus it gives that glow from within look I always lust after. The purple shade isn’t visible on the skin but somehow wakes up my complexion. I have a travel size but will be buying full-size once I’m done with it! Both primers can be mixed with a foundation too, which gives you a bit more flexibility in terms of coverage and finish of your existing bases.

Foundation. 


Sadly when it comes to foundations I have some reservations. Not because of the formula as it’s so glowing and beautiful I’d bathe in in all day every day. It’s been a few years since the big storm about the shades, particularly light shades. Becca Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation in Porcelain is at least a full tone too dark for me, so I can only use it by mixing it with the foundation whitener. It’s not the most lasting of the bases I own and on top of a good primer, it’ll last 8 hours. The main thing is the finish because truly it’s stunning. That glow, almost wet skin finish is super easy with Becca! The formula works well on dry skin, combination dry & mature. In fact, I love this on my mom as it gives her that youthful glow.

Concealer.


As with foundation, the Aqua Luminous Perfecting Concealer comes in super light and creamy formula that glides on the skin and doesn’t accentuate dry skin or wrinkles. It should be set with a light brightening powder to ensure it won’t crease during the day. This is perfect for drier skin and mature types! It offers light to medium coverage but brightens nicely to reflect the light of your dark circles. Shade-wise, I have it in the lightest offering and for me, it’s only ok in the summer when I’m a little tanned. I wish Becca would listen to us pale beauties and come up with some lighter shades! 

Highlighters. 


This is a safe place, no judgement and I don’t plan on judging myself for my slight obsession with Becca formulas! Starting with liquid, which I have in a travel size of Shimmering Skin Perfect Liquid Highlighter in Moonstone. This is a perfect light champagne, ideal for many skin tones. It reflects light like no other and I love to use it on top of foundation or even mixing it a little bit. Stunning shade and the travel size will last you a long time! I know this is a favourite of makeup artists because it creates such perfect almost glassy finish to the skin! I want this in powder too! 

I love my powder Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighters and tend to overuse it daily. I have quite a choice here starting from the darkest - beautiful medium champagne collaboration with Jaclyn Hill in Champagne Pop, through a stunning vanilla beige with pink shimmer Vanilla Quartz (here shown in a mini size) and finishing with Pearl - the most stunning white highlight on the market if you ask me. Pearl shoutout to all my lovely pale beauties out there! The formula is soft and buttery and goes on beautifully reflecting the light without a hint of glitter in sight. They aren’t cheap but with many shades now available as minis, there’s no better time to try it!

  4. I'm glad you mentioned about the backlight priming filter and the aqua luminous foundation not lasting because I've just purchased them, and that exactly what's been happening. xx

  5. I actually haven't tried much from Becca besides cheek products! But of course they're the authority in that area :)
