Skin Perfecting with Becca


Becca Skin Perfector in Moonstone – £33

Embracing light and dewy skin has led me to this little wonder. I’m not sure of it’s availability anymore since Becca was discontinued in Europe, but it is widely available in the States and I picked this up in Sephora. It has hovered around on my wish list for longer then I can remember and when on holiday I spied this on one of the counters and couldn’t resist. In a nutshell this is a water based moisturiser that contains an SPF of 25. What makes it so special is the fact that inside are bundles of light-diffusing shimmer particles that gives your skin an instant boost of radiance. Not only that it also masks over any imperfections which aids in achieving flawless looking skin.

Available in four different shades I opted for Moonstone which is the pale gold offering. As this product is like a highlighter/primer/moisturiser all rolled into one it can be a bit baffling working out when is best to use it. I’ve found that using it alone or mixed in with my primer or my foundation works best, this then works the product all over the skin to leave it looking radiant.

Understandably this isn’t the cheapest item to add into your daily makeup routine and even though you get a pretty massive bottle I save it more for special occasions or when I am out for an event. I do find however that it makes a real difference to my skin and finish of my makeup. Coming from a combination skinned gal this doesn’t make my face look greasy or overly dewy in the summer, it just adds an extra oomph that shines through.
