Tag: BECCA highlighter
To be honest, with so many new makeup releases, sometime it is hard to get excited about a new product but everything I have included in this post has that wow-effect. Let’s take a look!
Ellis Faas is one of the coolest brands out there, the formulas of their products are phenomenal, so are the textures and the colours. This is why I am excited to share that the brand just released three new shades of their incredible Lights. I have actually reviewed the Lights (here)…
The new colours are: E306 in Beige, E307 in Chocolate Brown and
E308 in Dark Metal.
BECCA brought out a palette with their 5 best-selling shades of
Don’t we all want to glow for Spring? Luckily the brands got us covered with their newest releases. There are new highlighter palettes and individual shades.
Laura Mercier Lightstruck Prismatic Glow Palette $52 from Sephora
I remember how I was dying to get LM Bonne Mine palette ages ago, and this one has a similar concept but the packaging is so much more prettier, those pastels! The Prismatic palette contains lightweight, sheer, and blendable cream highlighters that give you the desired glow.
Here are some tips:
- For a discrete warm glow base, apply Aurora all over the face, cheeks, and eyes.
- For a refined glow, layer Reflect or Prism to add a chic sheen to your skin.
- For a special-effect glow, layer Beam or Ray to impart an iridescent reflection or wet-like dewiness.

I swear that I’ve tried to make them look decent before taking the photo
The first one – BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl is my personal favourite and the one that I use on myself all the time, it was recommended to me by Lisa Eldridge years ago, and I love it. It adds a beautiful cool-toned glow to the face, without being shimmery. You can that luxe glow which you can see in top photo shoots. There are several ways you can use it, all the details here.
The second one is Benefit’s High Beam, and I have used half of it already actually. While BECCA is more subtle, this one gives more glow and has more defined pink undertones, but I still love and use it a lot. I like the fact that
Last week was a very busy one for me and I hardly got any sleep, so in the mornings it was a big challenge to a) get out of my bed b) look half decent. This made me analyse what products I was reaching for in such situation makeup wise.
