Let’s talk about strobing, shall we? It’s kind of a big deal and it’s very important.
I’ve always been into highlighter. I wrote about it (+ five other favorites) in this post. While I’ll never be super into contouring (unless someone wants to do it for me?) highlighting is something I love. I want to be DEWY. As dewy as possible. A dewy goddess.
A couple months ago, I was in Sonoma for my friend Jackie’s bachelorette party. Her friend Lia had the most amazing glow. When asked about the products she used, she gushed about the Becca Luminizer in Moonstone. I felt a little bad for her, because every single night we’d all go to her room and ask to be strobed. We looked amazing. My skin had never looked dewier. I literally ran to Sephora when I got home.
So there you have it. This stuff is good. In a few recent posts (this, this, and this) you guys asked what was going on with my skin. This (and a tan from Hawaii) is the trick. I apply to my brow bone + temples, bridge of my nose, top of my forehead, and corners of my eyes. The brush is also important, as it blends it in seamlessly for an almost-airbrushed sort of finish. I dot the product on with my fingers and then blend using the brush. I’ve now gotten most of my girlfriends back home to buy it and we swear by it. Some people use it under foundation but if I do put face makeup on, it goes under the Becca. For maximum dewiness, Becca is the last step.
One quick thing. I have the big bottle, which will probably last me the rest of my life (or potentially just this year as I’ve been applying very liberally). You can buy the travel size and it will last a very long time.
