So you know when you find that product and you're like "where have you been all my life?" Well that happened today with the Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector.
First this is a lot to talk about cause there's two ways to use it. You can use it under concealer as a corrector for dark circles to brighten the area or "back light" meaning that light will shine off it and illuminate the area making it seem like there's not darkness under there. It's more subtle that way. Or you can use it over your concealer routine to bright the area up and blend down to where you just look illuminated and bounce light off the darkness of the area.
I actually used mine overtop of my NYX peach corrector because this is more of a pink peach and the nyx is more of a dark peach and that's what actually works best for my dark circles. If you don't have bad circles you could absolutely use this on its own no problem. I just happen to have really noticeable ones. So in the photo above all your seeing is a little of NYX corrector and Becca corrector over top. I literally didn't really need concealer over it like most Correctors when it was all said and done. I did apply concealer though just to see how the "backlighting" actually worked in the pictures below.
So first picture one eye is corrected sans concealer and one eye isnt. The next picture (top right), is just my NYX corrector. It's a dark peach and cancels out my circles the best. It has no illumination to it at all. Bottom left picture, Becca corrector is applied over top of NYX this is going to be the ESSENTIAL step in concealing my circles for the rest of my life. Correcting is needful but illuminating the area and then concealing it is the order that Im gonna use from this point forward. Like I said correcting is what cancels out the purple and blue but then adding this brightening corrector is what bounces the light off and "takes away the darkness" more or less. Bottom right, is foundation and my MAC Pro Longwear concealer in NC20. I really would've been fine with putting on my foundation and just setting the Undereye as it was without the concealer but the setting powdet has illumination to it as well so I didn't want to go overboard and plus I really wanted to see the whole "backlighting" technique.
For those who keep up with my under eye circle routine you know I love Origins Ginzing eye cream cause it has some brightening to it. This is 10x stronger than that. It's insane. I would be fine with just regular moisturizer now that I have the Becca corrector.
As far as the product goes in terms of formula it's super creamy more creamy than my NYX corrector and just as creamy as Eve Pearl Correctors. It's very smooth and really sticks to the skin once it's on. So it doesn't get too thin and sheer cause it's so creamy it keeps its coverage. High shine, obviously. It's more pink than peach but it will work to correct for those of you who don't need as much correction as I do.
This is y makeup all finished. Really can't tell you enough how much of a game changer this product is. It's $29 at Sephora.com and they also have concealer to go with it but I used what I had and it worked fine.
I'm a makeup and skincare lover. I have always enjoyed creating looks but I love to help people with product knowledge and application even more. I've been able to do these things because God has seen fit to bless me with the opportunity.
