There’s something to be said about the all-important product in your makeup kit: the highlighter. Much like a caffeine shot for your face, swiping on a highlighter can make your face look instantly fresh, awake and oh-so glowy. However, finding the right highlighter with a creamy texture and a va va voom glow can take eons; which is why, when I tried the Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in Champagne Pop, (the #1 best-selling highlighter in the U.S*) I knew I had found the ONE.

What Makes It So Special?

  • Universally Flattering: The Becca SSPP Highlighter in ‘Champagne pop is a soft golden highlighter with a pinky-peach pearl that looks fabulous on all skin tones.
  • Genius Formulation: Unlike traditional pressed powder and highlighters, this unique formula combines luminous pearl pigment with liquid; think: an amalgamation of ultra-fine, pearl pigments with liquid for an ultra- buttery texture. Result: A creamy formula which builds and blends seamlessly, without looking glittery or chalky; plus, gives you the most natural, luminous glow from every angle. PS: This is cruelty free and peta certified.
  • The glow: Since the texture is uber easy to work with, you can swipe this on to mimic healthy, dewy skin—or build it up for that super-glowy, striking effect.

Get The Look:

Whether you are a makeup pro or just starting out, the application steps are really easy to master. However, it’s important to note that this highlighter is recommended only for your face and not for your body.

Step 1: Start by applying product to an angled highlighter or fluffy brush.

Step 2: Sweep onto the high points of the cheeks, creating a “C” shape as you move up toward the temple and brow bone.

Step 3: Build where more glow is desired, such as cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, and chin. Repeat until desired effect is reached.

Now, while I love the ‘Champagne pop’ hue, you can also choose from a myriad of gorgeous shades that will light you up and impart that au-natural glow.
