B E C C A   S U N L I T   B R O N Z E R   C O L L E C T I O N  

This week I received the brand new BECCA Sunlit Bronzer Collection which was kindly gifted to me by the goddesses of BECCA themselves.

As we know BECCA do highlighters really well, I’m also a huge fan of their Multi-tasking Perfecting Powders. So my enthusiasm for this new Bronzer collection will come as no surprise. 

On opening the box I was greeted by the unusual Bronzed version of the distinctive BECCA compact. The reflective antique Gold feels super luxe and pairs perfectly with the glossy Brown housing of the bronzers. 
Inside each attractive compact resembles the silky sand dunes of the Sahara Desert! 
And much like the hot sand glistening under the beaming rays of the Sun, this creamy powder is laced with light reflecting particles that shine through. 

There are 5 shades available all of which are a neutral coloured bronze which makes them suitable for every skin-tone. The formula is a creamy powder which sweeps over the skin beautifully; used lightly they will give you a softly sun-kissed appearance, but layer the bronzer and you can achieved ‘just-stepped-off-the-beach’ skin! 

Here are swatches of all the shades - the top set were taken outside in direct daylight, the bottom set were inside by the window - subtle differences but I think it’s good to see how a product looks both indoors and outside.
With flash photography the product pretty much looked identical to the bottom image - a subtle glow. 

From left to right:
BALI SANDS - Soft Golden Beige, fair to medium skin tones.
CAPRI COAST - Warm Golden Bronze, light to medium skin tones. 
BRONZED BONDI - Medium Amber, medium skin tones. 
IPANEMA SUN - Medium Auburn Brown, medium to dark skin tones.
MAUI NIGHTS - Sienna-Kissed Bronze, deep skin tones. 

Tips for applying the bronzer;
Sweep in a C-shape motion starting at the apples of the cheeks and gliding upwards towards the temples. 

Each bronzer retail at $38 each and are available at Ulta and BECCA cosmetics.
They will also be available for purchase from Sephora on 25th April!

Long, long ago, when the Earth was new and icthyosaurs swam the turbid seas, Iron Man 2 arrived in theaters. [Ed. Note — Simmer down. It was 2010.]

It was, most agreed, a disappointment, compared to its predecessor, despite a fun and deeply, deeply squirrelly Sam Rockwell performance. (Remember how he had bronzer on his palms? And no one mentioned it, it was just a character thing? Remember that? That was cool.)

I agreed that it didn’t work as well as the original Iron Man, and I said then — declared, really, as I was a younger man, full of Moxie, and gumption, and eels — that I knew why. In fact I developed A Theory. A Grand Unified Theory of Superhero Cinema.

It’s the origin, I thought. It’s crucial. Origin stories are what draw us in and keep us engaged. They’re cinematic road maps, guiding us from here (mundane human existence) to there (a world of costumes, powers, magic, spectacle). Bildungsromans in spandex.

Once you get past the origin story, I thought, what have you got left? Dudes in suits, waling away at each other. Big whoop.

In other words: The origin story is what drives and shapes a superhero franchise, because it grounds all that third-act (and sequel) CGI action in the first-act world where characters have dreams, and relationships, and lived lives. Because in that life, something magical happened — this guy got amazing powers! The origin story tells you how it happened, and why it happened.

Neonite: Lacquered Electric Pink Lips and Teal Liner

Not for the faint of heart! (I promise more neutral looks are coming up soon LOL.)

This is a look that combines neutrals with “pop” colors like teal and electric pink, so it’s loud, but it’s not entirely insane. Yet.


To rein it in a bit, all you need to do is to replace the shimmery green with a gold shadow, and the teal liner with a brown or black.

y’all remember when we got Peak Robert Sugden Content but it was ruined because the emmerdale makeup department doesn’t know how to use bronzer,,,, it still hurts me a little

permanentlyinterested  asked:

yo do you have any tips for a guy looking to get into makeup? where do I even start pls help (( also ur hot af ) )

Start off simple. 

*before doing ur makeup, priming your face can help so like and tips on that will be located at the bottom of this long ass answer*

If you want a natural look and nothing extreme, I suggest getting a basic powder foundation that matches your EXACT skin tone. I suggest Bare Minerals they have a great selection of skin tones. It’s also got a pretty decent coverage but nothing too extreme or noticeable. 

I suggest these two: 

ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum (on the left) is good for dry to normal skin. The MATTE Foundation Broad Spectrum (on the right) is good for normal to oily skin. If you have dry skin i suggest you not use this one, it could look cakey. 


You can mix this into your foundation powder shown above^: 

I seriously vouch hardcore for Bare minerals. But if you want to go on a cheaper side, i’m sure you can find a drugstore dupe. 

Simple contouring and (or) bronzing, and highlighting aka “bringing life back to your face”


No matter what, if you’re wearing foundation you NEED to bring shape back to your face. Foundation can flatten your face and can kind of high the natural highlights and contours on your face. 

Simple contouring: 

You can use a lot of things to contour. Eyeshadow, blush, setting powder, or just something from a contour kit (so many companies are coming out with these). But it’s important that no matter what you choose to contour with, it always needs to be MATTE. Meaning no shimmer or glitter. 

Here’s an example of where your contour should be placed: 

“How dark of a shade should it be to look natural on my face?" 

A shade or two darker than your natural skin tone. 


(products used in the above photo: “FOUNDATION” - Revlon Colorstay liquid foundation in 110 ivory, their palest shade. “YASSS” - MAC’s ‘Baby Don’t Go’ blush. “SLAYY YASS” - ‘Fawn’ in the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit palette. It’s the middle shade in the kit.)

Another HUGE thing you need to understand is it needs to have a grey undertone. Grey undertone proves a natural shade. You know how when you walk around your shadow is always black? Well the grey undertone provides that kind of shadow effect. Red undertones or yellow undertones can make it look muddy and out of place. 

Examples of grey undertones: 

light shade with grey undertone

darker shades with grey undertone




Highlighting is the reverse of contouring. You’re bring forward features. You want to use something one to two shades lighter than your skin tone. For me, since i’m so pale, it’s literally just white. 

IMPORTANT THING TO NOTE: The undertone of your highlight should match the undertone of your skin color/foundation. You can youtube how to figure your undertone. 

Where to put highlighting: 


Bronzer does nothing but add a sun-kissed glow to your complexion. it shouldn’t be used as a way to contour unless the bronzer has a greyish undertone. But most bronzers have a red undertone. When dealing with cheek bones, bronzers should never be placed on top/over the contour, but only slightly above it. 

Like so:

ALSO PLEASE BE CAREFUL OF HOW DARK THE BRONZER IS. It should only be a shade or two darker as well. If you went two shades darker with contouring, i suggest doing one shade darker with bronzer. If you’re not doing contouring, it’s up to you on how dark.

Priming & Skin care **important as heck**

You need to take care of your skin. The better the skin is, the better the results will be with any finished makeup look. But don’t worry, you don’t need flawless skin to wear makeup or look good af with it on. But keeping it clean and healthy is so important. If you don’t nurture your skin, makeup can break you out. 

Skincare & basic prep 

Face masks, creams, exfoliates, acne treatments, and etc. All of those will help keep your skin awesome. Plus, if your skin reacts poorly to a certain makeup product, you’ll have these in hand. 


  • You must clean your face EVERY DAY before putting on makeup. 
  • You must remove make up from your skin thoroughly, and then clean your face again after wiping off all the makeup. 



Also find a primer too.

jewghoul  asked:

How would you wear super sparkly bronzer?

Shimmer and glitter bronzers are great when you want bronze, glowing skin. You use a bronzer with shimmer as an all over bronze glow to give you that sun kissed, golden goddess skin rather than using it for contouring and creating shadow.

When using a shimmer, more golden bronzer you want to use where the sun would hit your skin like your forehead, nose, chin and cheek bones. These areas of the face are the most prominent and get the most sun exposure so naturally they would be slightly more tanned and golden. Depending on how light or dark the bronzer is you could even use it as a golden, bronze highlight on your cheek bones!

Basically, you don’t have to be too precise or careful with it like you do contouring. You can apply it to larger areas of the face unlike contouring. Depending on the amount of glow and shimmer you want, i’d start off with a thin layer of bronzer and add more as you go.

Fawn Halloween Makeup (using cheap ass drugstore shit)

This look was originally all over Reddit and Pinterest, so I definitely needed to try it. Although, I of course needed to add my own flare to it, by adding some fawn-style ears and accessories. 

This is the same look I posted to my Reddit account: /u/rumpus_ruffled

(Just to cover my bases before someone accuses me of plagiarism.)

What you’ll need (for just the makeup):

  • All your basic makeup, that you’ve probably already got.
  • Black liquid eyeliner 
  • White eye pencil
  • Bronzer
  • White clown face paint (or something similar like white powder)

What you’ll need (for the ears and accessories):

  • Hot glue
  • Aligator clips
  • Earring studs and backs
  • Fawn-like fake foliage (I used berries and pussy willows)
  • Brown and cream colored felt 
  • White acrylic paint

The makeup is honestly pretty simple, you just need to have patience. Feel free to spice it up, or adjust parts if you get too pissed off during the process. 

I don’t know why I didn’t take step-by-step pictures of this, so please reference the picture while reading the steps.

  • Put your foundation on.
  • Take your white powder or cream makeup and run it across your forehead/eye region (including your eyelids), down your nose, and a little above your upper lip. 
  • Then take your bronzer, and line the top of your forehead/hairline, and bring it down onto the apples of your cheeks. 
  • Remember to blend. No one wants a cheap looking fawn.
  • Take your white eye pencil and give yourself some cute-ass dots on your cheeks and above your upper lip. I’ve added a couple more here and there. (They’ll pop more if they’re on top of the bronzer.)
  • How I did my nose was a total bitch. But you can easily achieve the same affect with a simple black nose, and some contouring using your bronzer. 
  • Follow that contouring up to your eyebrows. (Seriously, reference the picture for this one.)
  • Then just do your eye makeup however you normally would. I kept it simple with just black eyeliner and mascara. 

I really should have taken photos of how to do the ears because they’re a lot more complicated to write out than they seem. But basically, you just need to:

  • Figure out the shape you want.
  • Cut out the patterns, and glue that shit together. 
  • Attach it to some alligator clips.
  • Paint the tips of the ears white, and add little dots. Similar to how your face should look.
  • Look cute as fuck with those bitches on your head. 

The earrings and hair piece are seriously the easiest thing in the world. 

  • Glue some foliage to your earring studs.
  • Glue some foliage to your extra alligator clips.
  • Look fly as hell. 


Now, go frolic in a field, you fawntastic bitch.

If you're prone to over-applying bronzer dip your brush in translucent powder first and THEN a bronzer. The combination will result in a perfect, subtle sunkissed colour.
a post about makeup for my waifu (and anyone else who may need it)

 waifu! starshine!! i!!! am so excited for you and will be here for you every step of the way!!! 

to be honest i could write a book on makeup and cosmetics (i.e. nail and hair stuff in addition to skin/face stuff!) so i will try to write this more as a primer for you *b-dum-tss* (this is a pun that you will understand very shortly) than a comprehensive guide.
as you start to get comfortable with things and wanting to try new stuff that you maybe don’t know about, please feel free to come back and i can supply more information or maybe just reviews depending on what you need. ;u; now let’s get down to business!!!


how much you’re going to need to know and purchase is mostly based upon how and why you plan to use makeup! if you just want to ease in with more “natural”/“daytime”/“breezy” looks, you probably won’t need to know as much as if you’re interested in doing some more complicated, comprehensive, or theatrical looks. (as an example: there’s a difference between wanting to know how to use a pencil liner and mascara and wanting to learn how to contour or apply false lashes).

but there are certainly some basic products used in pretty much all makeup that you should be aware of:

  • foundation - foundation is often seen as the first step in all makeup, though you don’t really have to use it!! (i actually completely forewent the stuff for the first few years that i used makeup regularly b/c i didn’t know much about it and didn’t feel i needed it) typically it’s going to come in either a powder form or a liquid form. sometimes you’ll see something called a “liquid powder” or “aquasmooth” which are somewhere in between. i personally prefer a liquid because they tend to provide more coverage but ymmv!!
  • eyeliner - this is probably the kind of makeup you are most likely to have some experience with even if you don’t use it but once in a very long while!! you’ve got a whole bunch of different kinds, too:  
  • pencil - can come in a pencil that you have to sharpen or in a roll-up crayon. you can use them everywhere – inside your “waterline”, outside your upper and lower lashlines, in your freakin eyebrows!!
  • liquid - can come in a pen/marker deal or a little tube with a brush; typically glides on easily, good for detail work. this is what most people use to do a cateye
  • creme/cream - this one will come in a little glass pot with a brush of some sort! it’s thicker and sometimes more intense than liquid liner and works better if you have to smudge or blend
  • mascara - this one should be pretty easy. it comes in a tube with a brush and is used to darken, volumize, or lengthen the lashes.
  • lip stuff - lip stuff can be anything from a tinted balm to a lipstick to a sheer gloss to a stain (kind of like a big marker) to the recently popular opaque liquid lip colors. the variety in product type is staggering, even within single brands/lines to the point that i tend to think it’s a bit excessive. these you’ll want to just look at at the store and decide what kind of product you like best for what colors (i recommend swatching whenever possible – just put a tiny bit on the back of your hand and see how you like it on your skin)
  • eye shadows - !!!! my favorites!!! pretty self-explanatory and something you should have NO problem with, being a visually artistic person. can come as pressed or loose powders, cremes, mousses or even straight up liquids/paints! whether you buy yours individually or in palettes is up to your mood, your needs, and your wallet (more on this later)
  • brushes - perhaps the most important part of your kit!! brushes help you apply eye shadow, eyeliners, and lip stuff as well as liquid foundations/concealers, foundation and setting powders, and blushes/bronzers/highlighters! can be bought in sets/kits or one at a time depending on price range or the specificity of your need. 


aka less basic/stuff i had to grow into:

  • primer - primer is usually marketed as “blurring imperfections” or “concealing pores”, which it definitely does, but it can also be helpful for people who have sensitive skin. i don’t like the feeling of my foundation going directly on bare skin, so i prime first. mine isn’t color correcting (though those do exist if that’s a concern of yours), but it evens out the texture of my skin and feels silkly smooth and light on my face.
  • setting powder - setting powder is not the same as powder foundation but can be used with it or on its own. i used a tinted setting powder to hold my liquid foundation in place and cover up the last imperfections/unevenness after i’ve applied concealer. setting powder comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED from me
  • blush - blush is also something that comes in a dizzying variety of forms. most of my experience has been with powders, but there are also mousses, cremes, “glazes”, and more. some products double as lips and blush, too!
  • highlighter - highlighter is kind of like blush’s more demure, dewier younger cousin. it’s used to make certain areas of the face shine and pop out more, adding oomph with less color. typically comes in powder, though the creams are wonderful.
  • bronzer - i can’t tell you too much about how to actually apply bronzer seeing as i am too pale to really make use of it, but it’s used to give one a “sun-kissed glow” or in contouring, which is the process of using products slightly lighter/brighter or darker than your natural skin tone to emphasize (highlight) or recess certain specific areas of the face. contouring accounts for most of the facial transformation you see between celebs w/ and w/o makeup.
  • falsies/appliques - these are like, the great final frontier of glam. falsies come in singles (little groupings of abt three hairs that you add where needed) or whole sets of lashes that you just glue above your lash lines. they can be everyday and just for a little enhancement, or they can include rhinestones, pressed flowers, feathers, velvet cutouts – p much anything you can think of has been used in a pair of false lashes. there are also appliques that you can use on your eyelids that look like liner – most commonly i’ve seen velvet ones w/ little rhinestones. mad respect to anybody who can pull those off i have not yet tried.


  1. thou shalt never feel shame for starting out w/ the cheapest stuff at the drugstore
  2. thou shalt experiment with different products from different brands in the search for the optimal functionality/price ratio at whatever pace thou is most comfortable
  3. thou shalt not feel obligated to buy expensive
  4. thou shalt neither feel obligated to buy cheap 
  5. thou shalt go out of thine comfort zone and try new products and techniques for thine own enrichment, but never at the expense of thine pocketbook
  6. thou shalt consider supporting independent brands (such as shiro cosmetics and the like), for they are often of high quality and low price
  7. thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s M.A.C./Dior/YSL – good makeup comes from good practice as much as good product
  8. thou shalt be patient and strike when the deals are best
  9. thou shalt take advantage of free samples and coupons whenever possible
  10. thou shalt prepare thyself to throw all of this out of the window if/when the perfect product comes along – treat yo self


ok i think that about covers it!! like i said, i’m always here for whatever you need to know about – and this goes for any followers who might be new to cosmetics! i’m not an expert or a big tutorial-er or anything like that, but i’ve put a lot of time and energy into this stuff and will do my best if you have questions or concerns.

if you want a tour of my makeup/a breakdown or tut of how i do something/basically anything else, please don’t hesitate to ask me!!! i can give you brand recommendations for drugstore and mid-high-end brands (i’ve owned a few M.A.C. products, but no Dior or NARS yet  (acutally i take that back, i once owned a NARS highlighter called “super orgasm” and it was AMAZING)). if you decide you’re really interested in trying a lot of stuff or climbing up the price ladder a little, i recommend getting in on sephora’s beauty insider program. you get free samples every time you shop plus a birthday gift every year and rewards for buying – pretty much like any other rewards program, but when you spend as much time and energy on cosmetics as i do it adds up over time.

most importantly!!! HAVE FUN!!!!! <333 watch tuts, read reviews, explore different brands and their lookalikes (NYX cosmetics looks super cheap, but apparently their butter gloss is one of this year’s most beloved products), and never forget that makeup is for you and making you feel good and letting you express yourself!! it’s a great tool for personal creative expression that has brought me a lot of joy and comfort and hopefully you’ll enjoy it too!
