Get That Glow With Becca


becca-highlighters-glowy-glow-highlight-skin-makeup-collection-pearl-opal-champagne pop, sigma, priming filterWhenever I think of highlighters my mind automatically turns to Becca, the queen brand for highlighting. They have the best collection of products to help get that highlight on fleek from liquid to cream to powder highlighters in a selection of shades perfect for every skin tone. Not only do they offer a great range of different products, they also have an amazing consistent formula with every product excelling in quality making it well worth the splurge! I’ve gathered quite a few highlighting products from the range so I thought it would share my thoughts on why you need at least one in your collection!

LIQUID 

Starting with the couple of products in a liquid formula that I own. The first is one of the newest additions to my stash in the form of the Backlight Priming Filter which as it suggests is a primer. I’ve been so obsessed with glowy skin yet I never owned a glowy primer despite my love for primers. So obviously having heard the raves about this, I had to pick it up! Used under makeup, the pearly toned liquid creates a beautiful radiant glow to the skin with the effects of the snapchat filter with the perfect skin, ya know the one! It also has a really nice scent to the product too and just works at creating the perfect glowy base!

Moving on to highlighters, I’ve also got a miniature of the Shimmering Skin Perfector in the shade Opal which acts as Becca’s liquid formulated highlighters. I’ve mentioned this one in my favourites before so you know the drill. As a liquid, it creates a gorgeous natural glow to the skin and blends in beautifully on the tops of the cheekbones with a beauty blender. The shade is a gorgeous light peachy gold shade that works lovely on my pale skin!

POWDER

On to my favourites from the range, the powder highlighters. I am always more of a powder girl rather than cream and liquid and these are without a doubt the best powder formulations I’ve ever came across! I have three shades in total; Pearl, Opal and Champagne Pop, all of which suit my pale skin incredibly well. Pearl, is the newest addition to my collection and also the lightest of the bunch. It looks incredibly scary in the pan as it pretty much is stark white, however it blends out beautifully on my skin to give a real oomph of a glow! Definitely not for the faint hearted but if you are love a strong highlight then I definitely recommend it!

Next up is Opal, the only one I own in more than one formulation. This is a beautiful golden-y pearl shade and also works beautifully as an eyeshadow! Lastly, is the one and only and my all time favourite, Champagne Pop. If you don’t own this already then just get it! It is such a beautiful highlighter and my go-to for a night out. The shade in collaboration with Jaclyn Hill is a beautiful warm peach-y golden shade that is just all kinds of wow!

The formulation of these pressed highlighters is quite simply unbeatable. The powders across the board are creamy and buttery smooth to apply and work with. The pigmentation is also outstanding for each of them! If you love highlighter then Becca is the range you need to seek!

Contouring and Highlighting With Seventeen


Seventeen Contour and HighlightContouring and Highlighting has took the beauty world by storm in the last year. Whilst it’s been a popular technique with make-up artists for years, it’s only now became a mainstream method with most major beauty brands launching their own products to help give that chiseled look. Whilst many higher end brands seemed to latch on to the contour/highlighting trend pretty quickly it took the drugstore a little while to really catch on with the latest beauty trend. Although one drugstore brand has served up a duo of products to help you nail the look. Seventeen have a couple of products from their range that I’ve been trying out, both of which can help create that sculpted and glowy look on a budget.

I am without a doubt a lover of the glowy look. The Seventeen Skin Wow 3 Way Highlighter* is definitely a product well up my street. Essentially a three-in-one liquid highlighter, it works as an illuminating primer for under foundation, an extra glow mixed in with foundation or a highlighter to add to the tops of the cheekbones. Personally I prefer this as a highlighter over the top of foundation to add that extra glow. The highlighter is super lightweight and blends beautifully on the skin. It isn’t overly shimmery or glittery but appears as a natural glow on the skin. At £5.99 it is such a bargain especially considering the 30ml size. A easy convenient product that I will love for a long time to come and a product that could easily rival many high end counterparts.

Whilst the contouring trend may conjure scary thoughts, there is no reason to be afraid of a little contour. The Seventeen Define and Conquer Contour Kit* is the perfect everyday contour kit. The kit comes with a contour shade and a highlight shade both with a matte finish. As a pale skinned gal, I only need to use the contour powder light-handedly to create a sculpted look on the cheeks. The powders are super fine though and blend really flawlessly. As I do prefer a more sheen-y finish highlighter, I prefer using the liquid highlighter for highlighting on the cheekbones rather than using the matte formula. Although the matte highlight shade works really well to add a little glow all over the face and under the eyes rather than a full-on highlighter. Again at £5.99 it is a bargain and the contour shade alone is worth a lot more.
