How to Get That Summer Glow / Becca Cosmetics Review

Having fallen in love with the strobing and highlighting trend I thought I better treat myself to a nice highlighter in time for the summer. Initially I was torn between buying one of the highlighters from Becca Cosmetics or one from the Anastasia Beverly Hills range - both had been raved about across the beauty bloggosphere, making my decision that bit harder! In the end I talked myself into the Becca Cosmetics highlighter in 'Opal'. The product wasn't cheap, and to be honest after excitedly whizzing through the checkout I had a little bit of a panic when I realised how much I had just spent on a highlighter - I'm a student after all! I had also convinced myself that not one of my many make-up brushes would be adequate enough to apply this highlighter, and so I also bought the Morphe E33 fan brush! Oh the things we can talk ourselves into buying!

The Opal highighter is the perfect shade and gives you that summer dewy glow. It's definitely best to apply the highlight straight onto foundation rather than powder, it blends so much nicer this way. I used the Morphe E33 brush to apply the product and just a little bit goes a really long way - I was super impressed! The fan brush applied the product so nicely, so my guilt about spending so much on this product is no longer haunting me and it's safe to say I will be glowing all summer long!

Both of these products were bought online from and arrived within 2 days! If you live in Jersey or one of the other Channel Islands you will know that NO post ever arrives before 5 working days (I's like a horror story) so I was really really impressed with the service and will definitely buy from them again!

You can shop both the products here:
