The Beauty Edit: Getting That J-Lo Glow With Becca Cosmetics

Getting a "lit from within" glow is something that I strive for every summer. I'm not kidding, I really try and make my skin so glowy you can see it from space. I always wonder how the hell celebs like J-Lo, Jessica Alba and my girl of the moment, Meghan Markle do it. They all look blemish free, sunkissed and glowing to perfection and I certainly didn't. Not even with a filter.

But now I think I've found the answer to my highlighting woes, its Becca Cosmetics. Now if you are like me then you'd know Becca from the infamous Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop highlighter and their newest collaboration with my homegirl Chrissy Teigen (homegirl in my dreams that is). But Becca is so much more than their collaborations. I for one don't wear highlighter. I just hate it. I want to look glowy but highlighter just looks gritty and chunky on my skin. Which is why I avoided Becca for so long. And now I'm certainly making up for lost time with my latest beauty haul, which in all honesty, was a complete impulse purchase.

I'll set the scene. I just got paid, I had some really shitty news, I was in a shitty mood, and I had had it with a shitty person. I was scrolling on QVC's Beauty page and I also had low willpower, go figure. I took one look at my face and thought "Bitch, you look like absolute shit!". That's when I realized two things;

  1. My current makeup just wasn't working for me. I looked dull, cakey, and honestly, like the worst version of myself I'd seen in a while. I knew that I could do better than this. I've been a beauty blogger for six years. I'd given heaps of beauty & skincare advice to people. My face deserved better than the outdated winter makeup that was currently caking on it. 
  2. I had to pull myself off the sofa, pull on my big boy pants and put on some new makeup and show the world who's boss. (Now I'm not saying that makeup was the be all and end all to my mental state at that time. My point was that I deserved to treat my damn self and give myself that boost that I needed to power through a situation.) 

So I thought to myself, "Why the f*ck not?" and happily entered in my credit card details, clicking that sweet, sweet easy pay button and patiently (or in my case very, very un-patiently) waited for my box of goodies to arrive. And after two failed delivery attempts and one postman that deserves a raise, my package was here and I was in the middle of Becca beauty heaven. 

Once I had swatched till my heart's content and taken the necessary Instagram pictures (yup, that blogger life is real) I was eager to slap it all on my face and wait for the glow of the beauty gods to grace my complexion.

And it did!

I was so impressed with the products that I ordered (which you can find in my gallery below) that I haven't stopped wearing them since. I have finally achieved that perfect glow that I have desired and my face doesn't have a single imperfection that would say otherwise. 

I am in love with the Becca Backlight Primer and the Mineral Blush in "Wild Honey". They two are my killer products that now I can't live without. The primer gives my face that "lit from within" glow that I have always desired and the blush gives my a sunkissed flush that perfectly complements my olive skin, giving me that "no makeup" makeup look.

I just love how healthy it has made my skin looks, and I can't believe that I finally have that glowing complexion that I have always desired!
