Too Faced Born This Way Oil Free Multi Use Complexion Powder

Create a flawless, shine-free, naturally beautiful complexion with Too Faced’s Born This Way Oil Free Multi-Use Complexion Powder.
Inspired by the brands bestselling Born This Way Foundation, this multi-tasking powder offers far more than just controlling shine, though to be honest if it did only that I’d be pretty pleased!

Available in 25 versatile shades that match their liquid formula, you can use this silky powder alone for a natural look or on top of your regular foundation for up 12 hours of make up setting power.

Formulated with a host of skin loving ingredients, the oil free, non-drying, non-caking formula not only controls shine but also helps to blur the appearance of pores and imperfections.

Enriched with Coconut Water to aid in replenishing skins moisture levels, the powder also contains Alpine Rose to empower your skins health and resilience while Hyaluronic Acid creates a smooth and more youthful appearance.

I’m a big fan of the combination of skincare and cosmetics and I enjoy wearing makeup knowing that its helping to look after my skin at the same time as helping to make me look more radiant.

Finely milled and silky soft, the powder is a pleasure to use!

The compact comes complete with a mirror and a 2-in-1 sponge to allow you to achieve different layers of coverage depending on your mood and requirements and the soft sponge feels like gliding velvet across your skin.

Once applied, any shiny patches are instantly banished and replaced by a smooth, matte natural looking finish.

Its blurring qualities also help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and its non-caking formula means that instead of many other powders which sink into lines making them more defined, this powder actually helps hide them.

Comfortable to wear the powder feels creamy as opposed to dusty and leaves you with a beautifully natural finish.

I love this powder. My oily/combination powder loves this powder and I’m sure you’ll love it too.

After all, who wouldn’t want a flawless, soft focus complexion.

BECCA First Light Priming Filter

As autumn takes hold its time to change up both your skincare and makeup regime as your skin dictates a new set of needs and requirements.

Dull, dank and miserable days can reflect in your complexion so if you’re looking to inject some brightness and vitality back into your skin then now is the time to make friends with new products!

My new bestie is BECCA’s cult primer, their First Light Priming Filter (£28).

This lavender toned primer is perfect for achieving a soft focus, lit from within radiance that instantly banishes dullness and neutralises sallow tones.

Beautifully packaged within a heavy, luxurious feeling, frosted glass vessel, the lavender hue within radiates outwards while the cap features the brands logo.
Unlike many primers which can leave you feeling that you’re wearing it, this fluid is feather-light and silky in texture and blends into the skin seamlessly. Once on it doesn’t feel like you’re wearing it.

Its lavender hue disappears once applied to the skin and immediately works to brighten your complexion without making it appear to shimmer, shine or gleam un-naturally.

Enriched with spring water, hyaluronic acid, prickly pear flower and ginger it moisturises and energises your skin to create a plumping effect while translucent brightening microspheres brighten and blur imperfections.

Perfect for creating a healthy glow without make up or for making the perfect canvas for cosmetics application, it just gives your skin a head start. 

A boost of radiance and brightness to make you look and feel more awake and ready to face the day.

I love how soft and subtle this product is. Don’t get me wrong, I love a highlighter and illuminator, but sometimes the occasion calls for a more natural pick-me-up and for those times, this primer is excellent.

BECCA’s First Light Priming Filter is available now for £28 from Cult Beauty.
