One of my fave things about BECCA, besides the primo highlighters or its commitment to glowing skin? Oh, just the professional tips that the brand freely shares. BECCA posts Instagram pics of its products, accompanied by pro tips on how to use them. It's usually suggestions you may not have thought of, which allows you to get maximum value out of the product. Using a bronzer or blush or highlighter or even a cream formula eyeshadow in ways other than which it was intended is what elevates makeup to artistry. It's also incredibly fun to come up with new uses for the product or shade in a compact. BECCA suggested an unusual way to use its Bronzed Amber Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Powder, as well as its new, Sephora-exclusive Rose Quartz Shimmering Skin Perfector.
Bronzed Amber, which is currently sold out via the BECCA site, is a hybrid highlighter that was inspired by existing BECCA products, specifically Mineral Blush in Wild Honey and the Shimmering Skin Perfectors in Opal and Topaz. A few swipes of Bronzed Amber will add radiance to the focal points of your face, extending summer glow safely and sans the sun.
If you were able to score a Bronzed Amber compact, here is the brand's recommendation for using it in an unexpected way. Ready?
Instead of swiping over features you want to highlight or for dimension when you want to contour, sweep Bronzed Amber on your shoulders and your décolletage so you can glow all over! Be sure and use a big, fluffy brush to distribute the product evenly. Shimmery, sun-kissed shoulders are a "must" with tanks and off-the-shoulder tops, especially when you are still showing some skin during the warmer days of late summer and early fall.
Bronzed Amber is a beauty and will give you that sun-kissed, Jennifer Aniston x Kim Kardashian skin. Ready for another tip, this time for the soft pink Rose Quartz Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Powder, which is a Sephora exclusive?
Mix Rose Quartz with a clear lip gloss for a subtle and pretty pink lip! BECCA suggests topping a clear gloss with Rose Quartz. You could do the opposite — apply RQ to bare lips, then use your finger to dot gloss over top. Just do so gingerly so as not to smear the product or make a mess.
So. Many. Uses! The BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfectors aren't solely for the face. Have fun, play, and be your own makeup artist.
