Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector

Last year we loved heavy contouring, but this time around it seems as though highlights are having a moment. A good highlighter can wake up your face, give you a supermodel glow and really accentuate the high points of your face to show off cheekbones, make lips look bigger and nose look slimmer. I particularly love a super shimmery highlight, because even though they look less natural, they give the best glow and always photograph beautifully. Shimmery highlighters are especially good if you love matte makeup because they add back some dimension to the face.

Becca have a whole range of Shimmering Skin Perfectors that can only be described as beautiful, shimmery goodness and may be used for highlighting, adding colour to the face and even as eyeshadow. Opal is a light-medium champagne shade and has a very shimmery finish. The powder itself is soft, ultra fine and packed with pigment, so only a light hand is necessary. The compact I find to house quite a lot of product so I can see this one lasting a while. I love that this can be built up, which I would recommend because of the intense pigmentation. 

I dust this across cheekbones, tip of the nose and cupid's bow using a small tapered highlight face brush. A fan brush is also an ideal way to go if you want to avoid going overboard. This Becca highlight has excellent lasting power, going the distance over an 8 hour day without budging or sinking into pores. I find it looks particularly beautiful over a coral/peach blush shade.

All in all, I'm totally sold on this highlighting formula, and would love to try some of the other shades in the range that would also suit a huge variety of skin tones. You can purchase the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector and other Becca products from Activeskin here. These highlighters go for around the $46 mark, which is well worthwhile considering the quality and the amount of product. is a fantastic one-stop shop for all your beauty needs!
