I am often asked, both on my Instagram and in person, about my favourite types of Becca Cosmetics highlighters and best ways to apply them. Which is why I have decided to give as much information as I can, especially for those of you who are new to the brand, about all of their highlighters, primers, powders and even best tools to apply them with. So this might be one of my "longer", but more in-depth posts and I hope you find it helpful!
Backlight Priming Filter
Let's start with primers, shall we? I have gone through an entire bottle of Backlight Priming Filter, which for a girl who owns a lot of make-up, is quite an achievement. It comes in this luxurious matte glass bottle and contains 30 ml of an actual product. Considering a daily use, one bottle should last you well throughout a year. Now let's see what it can do for you and who will enjoy it the most.
This product was created to give your complexion an instant boost of radiance and glow. It is one of those more hydrating primers, which adds a nice layer of moisture right before you start applying your foundation/concealer/etc. So even if there was a large time gap between your morning skincare routine and make-up application, using a primer like this first will help other products blend seamlessly on top of it. If you ever feel like your skin looks exhausted and lacklustre - Backlight Priming Filter will solve your dull complexion issues in 1, 2, 3. Once blended, it almost gives you that mermaid skin glow, which I love. Another wonderful thing about this product is that every single lady (or gentleman) of any age or colour can use it, because this is a universally flattering primer. It won't make you look like a disco ball and it never appears shimmery or "too obvious" on the skin.
Does it extend the wear of make-up? From my experience it doesn't.
Will it make you look well-rested and youthful? 100 times yes!
Will it work for all skin types? I would only recommend it for girls/boys with normal, dry or very dry skin types. If you are oily or combination, this primer might look too glowy on you.
Best for? Even and luminous "lit from within" complexion.
