If you ever longed for flawless skin, but have never achieved it, try BECCA Cosmetics. Flawless beauty is what the company was founded to provide. “The whole philosophy of BECCA is about creating a natural, flawless look. It’s really about skin looking amazing – everything else is secondary,” said BECCA founder Rebecca Morrice Williams.
When BECCA talks about making women look their best – they mean all women, regardless of their age or ethnicity. It starts with a three-step skin perfecting make-up system. The goal of the system is to correct, perfect, and enhance a woman’s complexion – whether it is as white as snow or as dark as night.
BECCA is able to make that claim because of its vast color collection. While some companies try to pigeon-hole women into one of maybe a dozen concealer colors, BECCA offers 34 concealer colors and 30 foundation colors. When you add to this all the color combinations offered through make-up for lips, cheeks and eyes, any woman is able to achieve flawless beauty.
BECCA, founder Rebecca Morrice Williams, began her quest for perfection in the land down under. Working as a make-up artist in Perth, Australia, she grew frustrated at her choices. Yes, she could achieve a flawless look, but it either weighed heavily on the face or it didn’t last all day.
She combined art and science, spending six years with scientists in search of the best make-up.
The result is a line of make-up and skin care that has been endorsed by many of Hollywood’s A-list actresses, the world’s top models and music’s chart toppers. Actresses include Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet, and Reese Witherspoon. On the runway, you will find BECCA cosmetics in the toolbox of Jade Jagger, Elle MacPherson, and Liv Tyler. From the music world, BECCA graces the faces of Victoria Beckham, Britney Spears, and Alicia Keyes – just to name a few.
BECCA is best known for four of its lines:
Start your day off with a Radiance Primer, which brightens and illuminates your skin before you add another thing. This age-defying Radiance Primer diminishes dullness and replaces it with a dewy finish. Wear it along or under your foundation. You will find that the water-based formula keeps your make-up glowing all day long.
One of the more ingenious parts of the BECCA complexion collections is the Illuminate Wash – a sheer, water-based complexion enhancer with light-diffusing particles that shimmer and create instant luminescence, while concealing imperfections.
Or try Shimmering Skin Perfector, a water-based moisturizer that protects your skin with its SPF 20+ and adds radiance with its light-diffusing particles of shimmer.
If you know that BECCA tries to keep the skin dewy, how much more will its products help keep your lips moist? Start with the Butter Balm SPF 20, which is infused with Tahitian vanilla, cocoa butter, shea butter, honey, and Vitamin E. Wear it alone, or as a base under your favorite shade of lip color. It will protect your lips against the sun and harsh elements.
Want to pump up your lips a bit? Try Lip Plumping Moisture Gloss. It naturally plumps and hydrates your lips using Atellocollagen to boost you lips’ collagen. Then it adds layers and layers of richness with jojoba, avocado oil, Vitamin E, shea butter, cocoa butter, and honey extract. With lips so rich, they will be easy to plump.
Just running errands and you don’t want the full made-up look? Let BEECA teach you the tricks of the trade with a product like Beach Tint. This rich, easy blending crème can be used on your lips, as well as your cheeks. It is water resistant and dries perfectly blended onto your skin. It comes in a minimum of seven shades, each one scented to reflect the shade’s name.
BECCA knows that beautiful eyes start with perfect eyebrows. They are there to frame your face. But if you have unruly eyebrows, start with BECCA Brow Gel. This clear gel will groom your brow hairs and leave them strong well-conditioned.
For your lashes, try the award-winning Ultimate Mascara. It’s a water-resistant, micro-tubing mascara formula that will create longer and thicker lashes – all with one coat.
Brushes and tools
BECCA knows that the best make-up products need the best brushes to achieve a flawless look. You will find that Becca Cosmetics has a full line-up of brushes, as well as some specialty brushes:
Extra-fine Eyeliner Brush allows you to create detailed precision work, whether you are using wet or dry eyeliner or other paint products.
Dual-ended Brow Make-up Brush offers that same kind of precision on your brows. Both ends are angled, but one much broader than the other. Sweep in broad strokes with the wider end and then define, fill in and blend your brow colors with the other side. This brush can also be used with eye liner.
A flawless look is not easy to achieve, but using the best tools and products can make a difficult look far easier to achieve.
