I have long wanted to do a video overview on Becca cosmetics; so many of their products should be makeup bag staples. The Becca “look” is natural, radiant and flawless which is exactly the look that I aim for the majority of the time. I think that it’s the look that most women aim for the majority of the time.
Getting a radiant-looking complexion obviously involves a great skincare routine and a generally healthy lifestyle (sorry to break that to you!) but I also think that with clever, quality makeup you can ‘cheat’ your way to a natural glow. If you spend time prepping your skin and creating a perfect base, then it really shows. The video below concentrates on achieving a gorgeous, glowy and sheeny base using just a very few products. I create two different eye looks too, but the emphasis here is on the skin. I use a tinted moisturiser because a) I didn’t need a heavy coverage on the day of filming and b) the whole ‘natural radiant’ look relies on keeping makeup fresh and dewy.
The pictures above are from the Becca website – obviously there has been some nice old lighting going on there, but they illustrate perfectly the makeup look that I want to achieve; young, dewy and luminous. Although Becca do make colourful cosmetics, most shades are neutral and muted and extremely flattering. If you’re looking for easy-to-wear tones that enhance and emphasise rather than ‘mask’ your features, then I thoroughly recommend taking a trip to the Becca store on Pelham Street in London. Or having a browse online at Becca.com. Everything is really of the most superb quality and I definitely think that you’ll be seeing individual recommendations of these products appearing on A Model Recommends in the near future!
