One brand face: Becca (three lip looks)

It’s been a little while since my last one brand face post – so I thought I’d bring the mini-series back again with this face brought to you by Becca – and featuring one main look but three variations on the lip look – covering lip gloss, and two shades from their Beach Tint range… so covering colours for all seasons/situations. But let me talk you through the base look before we branch out into the various lip looks:

First a little info on the background of Becca – Becca is an Australian brand that was in the UK a few years ago, but then didn’t work out so left but then returned (yay!) earlier this year to grace the UK with it’s presence again via Space NK. Happy days – as this is a brand which features a few real gems – Beach Tints and the famous Luminous Skin Perfector.

There were two base products factored in – the Ever-Matte pore perfector for the matte base, or the Shimmering Skin Perfector in the shade Opal (there’s also newly launched powder shimmering skin perfectors that I have my eye on – they look stunning) but the famous product has to be the Shimmering Skin Perfector, the Opal shade is a peachy pink one and it adds a little glow all over but without looking *too* shimmery. Just glow. I used this on the cheeks but a bit of the matte primer on the t-zone to reduce any excess shine.

Then I went for the Radiant Skin Satin Finish Foundation  – with a buffing brush and just one little pea sized amount buffed in all over. I didn’t find this foundation as easy to work with as I had hoped – and it took some work to blend it all in to the skin so that it looked natural with no hint of lines from the brush. But a bit of work and I got there – it’s also worth a note that whilst I found it a little bit of work, I did love how it looked in the photos (I use studio lights, but not flash or anything else to give skin a more perfect look – so you can see how it does photograph well below).  Under the eyes I used the Radiant Skin Creamy Concealer – this is really creamy and definitely doesn’t need much to get strong coverage. Really good for under the eyes without caking or looking heavy.

Then for the cheeks I added a pop of colour courtesy of the gorgeous Songbird – a lovely mineral powder colour that adds that gorgeous peachy glow that is so ever-flattering for multiple skin tones. I love it and it’s probably the stand-out product for me from the Becca bits I’ve been playing with.

There was a slight cheat on this one, as I don’t have a Becca mascara, but I do have a liquid liner from them – so just went for a simple liner and lashes combo for the eyes and let the lips do the more interesting bit! The three colours below are:

Becca Beach Tint in Raspberry

Becca Beach Tint in Raspberry

Becca Beach Tint in Lychee

Becca Beach Tint in Lychee

Becca Lipgloss in Malibu Punch

Becca Lipgloss in Malibu Punch

 

The three lip colours cover all bases – a bright tangerine, a pink and a deep berry. So berry for winter, tangerine for summer and pink for year-round. I found it a little odd that the pink ‘Lychee’ goes matte when ‘Raspberry’ stays creamy  but sheer- slightly odd?! My favourite colour wise has to be Lychee, but not keen how it goes so matte – so texture wise, Raspberry is the winner for me.

Which shade is your favourite from the trio?!

Becca is available from Space NK

    I’ve never tried anything from Becca before but they’re a brand I definitely find myself looking at every so often. I really like that all of their products look really wearable and pretty. Love the look you created, your make up always looks flawless but I especially love your blush & lip colour <3

      Thank you! I think the shimmering base perfector thingy really helps create the flawless look! Wish it was summer so I could wear the orange gloss more!

    I’m definitely loving the lychee shade; Becca isn’t a brand I’ve used but it this post has made me think it’s time to give it a try! Thank you for sharing these products!

    I’ve never tried anything from Becca Cosmetics. But, after seeing how amazing they look on your face, I’m tempted.

      Thanks! When I first applied them I wasn’t 100% but when finished they looked good and they definitely photograph really well!
