The first thing that came to mind when I squirted some of Becca’s Beach Tint onto the back of my hand was that it made me feel like I was about to paint. Sweeping it onto my cheek with a brush, I felt a rush of pleasure. It wasn’t only the plummy sheen streaked across my cheek that elicited the excitement, but also the scent and the sheer, balmy texture of the tint. This joy of use is Becca’s trademark – the products are all designed to encourage your inner artist and help you discover the power of stroking a little colour, highlighter and shade onto a perfected base to emphasise chosen features.
Established by Australian make-up artist Rebecca Morrice Williams, the joys of using Becca products have been discovered by make-up aficionados the world over – Lisa Eldridge can’t do without the Shimmering Skin Perfector, Kylie Minogue has a penchant for the Beach Tints and Cameron Diaz, Helena Christensen and Sienna Miller all have a Becca stash. Can you see a theme emerging in the sorts of women who make themselves up with Becca? They all like to look glowing and effortlessly polished
I chose to road-test a faceful of Becca during an extremely hot weekend. Once applied, the make-up did not fade or slide around in the heat, nor did any of the shimmering particles look childishly sparkly/unnatural in glaring sunlight. Instead, the product merged into my skin and lent me the lit from within look of which I am such a fan. The Beach Tints and Shimmering Skin Perfectors really stood out – both were multitaskers that blended into the skin seamlessly. Start there on the brand and the artisans of make-up amongst you will be hooked.
