Nourish Your Skin While Creating the Perfect Look With BECCA Cosmetics

While women may go to extreme lengths to enhance their beauty, most would be satisfied with a flawless, dewy sun-kissed complexion. That goal is within reach with the flawless, natural-looking line up of BECCA Cosmetics. BECCA Cosmetics was founded by Rebecca Morrice Williams, a Australian native who wanted to give all women a flawless, natural look - regardless of their age or ethnicity. As a former model, Williams was something of a perfectionist. Her goal was to give women's skin a flawless look.

As a result, she focused on perfecting her foundations and concealers. In an effort to provide something for women of all ethnicities, BECCA Cosmetics ended up with 34 concealer colors and 30 different shades of foundation. After that, BECCA Cosmetics developed what is called the "3-Step Skin Perfecting Makeup System." It enhances the beauty of all women, giving them a flawless and radiant look. This three-step process is prepare, perfect and set.


The preparation step is basically applying a hydrating or matt primer to your skin. It may not sound very glamorous, but just as you prepare a wall before you paint, you apply a primer to your skin to create a smooth surface on which you apply your make-up. The smooth surface helps minimize lines and pores. After that, you apply a color base with a 25 SPF. With just a touch of pigment, the base evens your skin, moisturizes it and protects it from the sun. In addition to the sun protection, the base contains anti-oxidants vitamin A, B, D and E, which only make your skin more supple and radiant.


The perfecting part comes from BECCA'S stick foundation. Apply it lightly to the whole face or just to those areas where you need more help with coverage, such as blemishes, dark circles under the eyes, or red blotches to your skin. Finish up with a touch of crème blush to the cheeks for a perfect complexion. Or maybe you should try the Mineral SPF 30 Primer. It too will make your make-up water resistant and the micronized zinc oxide provides a barrier against harmful UV rays.


After all this effort, you want your perfect look to stay all day. What you want to do is "set" the make-up in place with a water-resistant finish. Fine loose finishing powder gives you a light matt finish that lets you stay looking fresh all day. Because it is a light finish, your make-up won't cake up on your face and stays fresh for hours.


So where do you start to get this flawless look? Try BECCA'S Shimmering Skin Perfector. The ultra fine mica reflects the light and gives your skin that glowing look. It also offers SPF 20 protection against UVA and UVB sun rays. It is rich in vitamins A, B, D and E, which increases the moisture of your skin and also helps repair damaged tissue. A great way to try BECCA Cosmetics is with a package like the Five Color Palette Compact. It comes with a two-ended brush along with a Turkish Rose crème blush, Doeskin powder eye shadow, Tweed powder eye shadow, Quartz crème eye shadow and Barbarella eyeliner compact.

The crème blush is made rich in vitamin E. Because it is so creamy, the long-lasting color will stay with you. It is recommended for most skin types, except very oily skin or blemished skin. Now that you like what you are seeing in the mirror, set that look with a fine loose powder and brush duo. BECCA Cosmetics loose powder can set your look for up to 12 hours. Remember it is only designed to set your look. Don't expect it to offer more coverage. Because it also smoothes your skin, you will not get that cakey look that sometimes shows up several hours into your day.

And because it is a powder, you will not get that greasy feeling created by some liquid and cream products. BECCA Cosmetics has stuck to its goal of giving women flawless-looking skin - and the effort has paid off. After launching in 2001, BECCA Cosmetics opened its flagship store in London just four years later. Today, BECCA Cosmetics are distributed around the world and BECCA Cosmetics has regional headquarters in North America, Europe and back home, down under in Australia.

"My search for the 'perfect foundation' became a mission that was to prove as elusive as the search for the Holy Grail!" said founder Rebecca Morrice Williams. "It seemed impossible to find products that not only concealed blemishes, but that also looked natural, felt like no make-up was being worn, and stayed on all day. Finally after more than six years of scientific development, the BECCA range ended that search. "Her satisfied customers are the beneficiaries of her tenacious search.
