You won’t know how you lived before this guide to highlighter

AConsistently at the top of the (champagne) pops, you can’t have failed to notice that we’re celebrating all things {BECCA} during June. We have eagerly-awaited product launches in the pipeline, a host of free gifts and exciting giveaways (make sure you’re subscribed to our emails and stalking following us on {Instagram}), as well as FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING across the whole range (we’re nice like that).*

So, whether you’re already a {BECCA} obsessive or new to this stunning make up range (where have you been??) we’re sure there’s something to seduce you… especially now that there are four beguiling incarnations of their best-loved {Shimmering Skin Perfector}.

Bewildered by which of these stunning highlighters is right for you? Here’s a quick guide:

{Shimmering Skin Perfector Slimlight}

The newest incarnation of the much-loved ‘Shimmering Skin’ franchise, this quick and convenient twist-up stick highlight is designed for specialist highlighting needs. The creamy crayon lends a semi-matte sheen for a targeted and ‘refined’ radiance. Ideal for brightening the inner corners of each eye, as well as streamlining larger-than-you’d-like noses, this looks exquisite applied to your cupid’s bow to make your lips look fuller.

Top tip: use this to line your lower lashline to fake ‘wide awake’ in seconds.


{Shimmering Skin Perfector}

This lustrous liquid highlighter is arguably the most versatile – use as a priming base for make up, mix a bead with your foundation of add a pump to body lotion for a beautiful, top-to-toe glow. With a dewy, lit-from-within finish, this is ideal for drier skin types in need of an instant youth-boost.

Top tip: use ‘Topaz’ to lend exposed limbs an elongating, golden gleam.


{Shimmering Skin Perfector Poured}

For those who like their glow a little more low-key, this dewy crème creates a subtle, backlit lustre that looks fresh and semi-matte (but never chalky). Ultra-easy to blend, this practically melts into your make up for a naturally sculpted look – and because of its cream formula, it’s perfect on-the-go. Just stash it in your handbag (there’s no risk of your precious powder shattering in transit), and use your finger tips to blend for a diffused, soft focus finish.


{Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed}

This ultra-creamy luminising powder is the key to an intense, buildable ‘strobed’ effect. Ideal for those who love their highlight with a high-shine finish, this one looks gorgeous swept along the very tops of cheekbones for a hyper-real aesthetic. And it comes in best-loved {Champagne Pop} (the one-shade-suits-all brainchild of YouTube and MUA-sensation Jaclyn Hill), as well as hypnotic {Prismatic Amethyst} (a multi-tonal hue that lends a lilac luminescence that looks beautiful applied to darker skin tones).
