BECCA Cosmetics

We all have days where our skin just isn’t playing ball and we need a little extra help to get our glow back. But if you’re mystified by brightening and highlighting don’t despair, BECCA Cosmetics is here to help. Inspired by the beauty of light, their balanced shade range means everyone can get their glow on with radiance-boosting products. Here are our top tips to brighten your base with BECCA…

Prime time

Wave goodbye to that lacklustre complexion by introducing a skin-awakening primer to your make-up bag. First Light Priming Filter, which is best applied before foundation, blurs imperfections and brightens. The wash of lavender is key to achieving an enviable glow as it dispels dullness by neutralising yellow tones, plus the light-diffusing particles leave you with a dewy, illuminated finish. It’s a one-way ticket to healthy, fresh skin!

It’s all bright

8 hours of sleep in a jar? Yes please! BECCA’s Under Eye Brightening Corrector can be used alone or under your usual concealer, but it’s a step not to be skipped if you’re looking to rev up your radiance. Using ultra-fine, light reflecting illuminators, this full-coverage corrector instantly brightens the appearance of dark circles.

Glow getter

Now you’re a fully-fledged glow getter, there are only a few more steps to create a beaming complexion. Next up, foundation – Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation is a favourite here at Birchbox as it’s so light, buildable and creates a subtle luminosity with a totally weightless feel. Each drop blurs imperfections and leaves a soft-focus glow – and it comes in 9 flexible shades to flatter all skin tones!

The last step to amplify your natural radiance is, of course, a highlighter. The Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlight has an ultra-buttery texture that melts into skin to add a high-impact glow. The iconic formula adjusts to your skin’s undertones which results in a beautiful lit-from-within finish. Our blog post, How To: Apply Highlighter For A Glowing Face, shares our top application tips to get you glowing in no time.
