If you follow me on Instagram, you already know I’m a sucker for great highlighters. Of all the highlighters I’ve had the pleasure of trying, my unbiased favorite is the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Powder in C-Pop. It’s a universally flattering shade, and no one seems to get the formulation as spot-on as Becca. Their pressed powder highlighters are so beautifully milled with just the right amount of believable sheen, and they never expose unsightly pores as many ‘sparklier’ counterparts tend to do.

Whilst the C-Pop has this gorgeous pale pink champagne hue that sits well for day to night, the Gold Pop shade is all out glamorous and perfect for that Summer Diva look.

Lucky me! I got sent the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Gold Pop, in all 3 formulations; liquid, cream and pressed powder. How do these formulations differ, and which one suits your beauty needs? Read on for more.

I haven’t done a #motd (‘makeup of the day’) post for a while, so today’s write-up is a breakdown of what went on my face to create my last selfie upload on Instagram:

I am SO in love with this brush. Kinda sad admitting I have such strong feelings for a makeup brush, but The One Perfecting Brush by Becca Cosmetics really is life-changing. When I first spotted this brush at the Sephora Middle East Summer 2016 event, I knew I had to get my hands on one. The bristles felt so luxuriously soft, and I loved the solid, earthy look of the handle.

Becca’s The One Perfecting Brush retails for AED 225 at Sephora, and is therefore not the cheapest of makeup brushes. However, I really do believe it will save me a good deal of time and money in the long-run. Here is why:

I had the pleasure of being invited to an exclusive Sephora Summer 2016 event late last month, and am now enamored with a whole new list of beauty updates for you!

From brand new product launches under the ‘Made in Sephora’ label, to the introduction of much coveted international beauty brands that the UAE market has been thirsting for, Sephora promises to keep you covered with the best in makeup and skincare for Summer 2016. Today’s post is a look at what’s new in the makeup isles of Sephora Middle East.

My latest vice is a serious addiction to makeup tutorials on YouTube. Educational and entertaining I’d say! And as a beauty blogger, it has introduced me to a whole new world of beauty brands and techniques.

One of my favorite makeup YouTubers has to be Jaclyn Hill, and when she collaborated with Becca to create this gorgeous trio palette of shimmer shades, I had to have it!
