8 Unexpected Ways You Can Use This Iconic Highlighter
There's nothing we love more than a multi-purpose beauty product, so what if we told you that everyone's favourite pressed highlighter was actually way more than just a highlighter? We recently sat down with Kerry Cole, Global Style Director of Becca Cosmetics, who gave us a run down on all of the inventive ways she uses the iconic pressed Shimmering Skin Perfector, and we were seriously impressed.
From gold-flecked lashes to the perfect glossy eye, behold eight amazing ways you can stretch your favourite Becca compact to its full glowing potential. Just choose a shade to complement your skin tone (although we love Moonstone for its universally flattering soft gold hue) and get to work. You can thanks us once these tips cut your holiday packing list in half, too.

Plan on wearing that Realisation mini all summer long? Take your pins up a notch by dusting the Shimmering Skin Perfector along the centre of your shins for long, VS-model legs that twinkle in the sun.
Golden eyebrows had a moment this year, and we're planning on trying it this party season. Take a clean eyebrow spoolie and run it over your highlighter before running it through your eyebrows.
If you're partial to a head of highlights but can't keep up with the regrowth, try dusting the shade Moonstone with a brush on the root area. It won't cover everything, but it will soften deeper roots and diffuse light by casting a soft shimmer.
Highlighting the inner corners of the eye area is the fastest was to hide the fact that you enjoyed half a bottle of Prosecco the night before. Use a tiny brush and press lightly in the inner corners once any other eye makeup is in place.
There's something special about glowy, shimmering collarbones (or clavicle cleavage, as Cole calls it). Use your regular highlighting brush to dust it along the length of your collarbone.
No matter how difficult, we just can't quit a glossy eye. If you're finding all your attempts are a goopy mess, try this foolproof formula: Take your finger and run it over the Becca Shimmer Skin Perfector compact so that quite a bit of product builds on your finger. Next, mix it in with Lanolips 101 Ointment ($15), and press it over the eyelid. The ultimate party eye in 30 seconds.
2018 is the year of the nose highlight, according to us. It just adds an extra dimension to makeup that really makes you glow. This pressed highlighter works a treat when applied softly to the tip of the nose.
Like brows, a little dust of shimmer on the eyelash certainly doesn't go astray. Once your mascara has dried, use a small, soft eye shadow brush to gently dust it onto the tips of your lashes. We love it paired with a berry lip for the festive season.
