As you guys know, I'm a guy who loves makeup. I'm not a makeup artist, nor do I want to be - at least not today. For now I'm just a guy who likes to play in makeup. Why let the girls have all the fun? They already get hair, and high heels - not to mention countless clothing options.
So, on my latest trip to SEPHORA, I was looking for a good highlighter - not just good, but AMAZING. A highlighter that said, "Look at me world, my skin is 18, and I'm 20 something", or better yet a highlighter that could rival JLo's splendid dewy-highlighted look.
Back to the highlighter....
I was there in search of a good highlighter, and the sales associate suggested BECCA. I had never heard of this cosmetic company, so I wanted to test out a few things before I dove right in. I learned that there are different types of highlighters that will produce several different affects on the skin. BECCA offers a "Shimmering Skin Perfector" in several formulas:
- Shimmering Skin Perfector (Liquid)
- Shimmering Skin Pefector (Pressed)
- Shimmering Skin Perfector (Poured)
Well to my surprise, right then and there in middle of SEPHORA, I found myself in highlighter euphoria. I tried all 3, and decided that my fave was the BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed. I purchased it in TOPAZ, and I've been in love with her ever since. I chose TOPAZ because of my skin tone - knowing your true tone, and undertones in your skin is a major factor in choosing your highlighter.
