Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed  

Becca’s highlighters will give you an absolute bang for your buck! The shade Opal is a warm golden yellow that looks drop-dead-gorgeous on Indian skin. A word of advice with this one, it’s slightly shimmery and very pigmented! So start with a little and build it up for that XXL bling.

theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer

The Mary-lou is an oldie but a goodie, it’s a warm golden yellow highlight with the perfect sheen. It has no chunky glitter particles so this one won’t accentuate texture and it’s great for giving you that lit-from-within glow. Grab this for your perfect for everyday highlight.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid

Becca’s liquid illuminators are absolutely stunning. They are not glittery, so they work well when worn alone and even under foundation. You can even dab some onto your highpoints when you’re done with foundation. P.S: I personally love to mix this in with my foundation and blend it onto my skin.

Psst! A great hack to get more bang for your buck on your powder highlighters is to spray a little bit of setting spray or rose water on your highlighter brush before you apply. You’re welcome!
