Tigerlily are long time fans of Aussie beauty brand BECCA! We love how they so effortlessly create the 'barely-there' bronzed beach babe vibe we covet each summer. The Perth-born brand love the beach just as much as we do here on the East Coast of Australia and now Winter has set in, the beach days getting shorter! With just under 3 months until Spring the creative team at BECCA have so kindly shared some insider tips on how we can make it through the Winter with the Bronzed beach babe look in sight...
BECCA’s Winter Complexion Tips Winter is here and with it comes along cold, dry winter air, indoor heating and long, hot showers that can dry out your skin, affecting your complexion. In addition to stepping up your skincare routine over the season, there are a few steps you can take to revive your complexion with your makeup routine.
After applying your moisturiser, always use a primer to ensure your foundation lasts all day. A great primer can provide extra nourishment for the skin to fight against a dull, lifeless complexion. Consider a primer such as BECCA’s Radiance Primer that energises the complexion with a luminous dewy finish or the Rejuvenating Primer that hydrates and softens tired skin.
Foundation is essential for creating a flawless, even-toned complexion. Sheer foundations such as Luminous Skin Colour visibly improve the complexion, yet look incredibly natural on the skin whilst providing an SPF of 25+. For effortless-looking skin enhanced by subtle radiance, our Radiant Skin Satin Finish Foundation provides medium, buildable coverage with subtle and is infused with Ejitsu Rose and anti-oxidants to care for the skin. After slightly more coverage? You may also consider the Matte Skin Shine Proof Foundation that delivers a velvety-matte finish with a non-drying formula. After foundation, apply concealer by blending with a patting motion, gradually building up coverage as required for a flawless finish. With a naturally radiant finish, Radiant Skin Creamy Concealer is a great choice for winter. Finally, set the face with a powder such as BECCA’s Blotting Powder Perfector for a soft focus look to even out imperfection even further.
Crème bronzer is a must-have for the season for a natural sun-kissed glow. BECCA’s Bronzing Skin Perfector can be worn under make up as a base, mixed in with foundation or moisturiser for a custom tint or applied over foundation. To bronze or contour specific areas of the face, squeeze a pea-sized amount onto your hand and blend onto the forehead and under the cheekbones into the hollows of the cheeks using a polishing brush.
Luminisers enhance the complexion with light-diffusing particles that reduce imperfections. BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector can also be mixed in with your foundation or applied over foundation for an incandescent glow. To apply over foundation, blend along the orbital bone and sweep past the high parts of the cheeks. Continue by highlighting the bridge of the nose, cupids bow of the lip and inner corners of the eyes using fingertips.
For that little extra bit of colour for the face, sweep a soft toned blush over the apples of the cheeks to finish, and with these simple steps for your makeup routine you can bid farewell to a dull, lifeless complexion over Winter.
