A Review of Becca Cosmetics

Becca Cosmetics is an Australian makeup line originally developed because founder Rebecca Morris Williams was frustrated in her search for the perfect foundation. The lines foundation formulas have since become beloved of makeup artists and consumers alike, but Becca also offers a wide range of color cosmetics as well.

Many women complain that they cannot find a true color match in most foundations. Most lines tend to ignore very pale or very deep skin tones, or they ignore undertones, such as warm or cool. Therefore, someone with dark cool skin may find that the darkest foundation looks too orange, while someone with pale warm skin may find that the lightest shade is far too pink. Becca’s foundation stick comes in thirty different shades instead of the typical eight or twelve, thus increasing the chances that you will be able to find the perfect color. All of the Becca Cosmetics base products for the face contain SPF as well.

Becca Beach Tint is often featured in magazines and has been praised by makeup artists; the shade Watermelon is a fabulous pink that gives the perfect summer flush. A multi-use product, it can be used as a stain on lips and cheeks. This product has been named an Allure Best Beauty Product.

In fact, Becca offers many multi-use products, from shimmer powders to highly pigmented cheek crèmes that double as lip colors.

The Becca look is toned-down, a bit earthy, but still glamorous and quietly chic. By creating the perfect canvas with the tinted moisturizers and foundations, you really don’t need a lot of bright, loud colors to accent your natural beauty.

These products from Becca Cosmetics may be slightly harder to find, but they can be purchased in certain department stores, in makeup boutiques, and of course, online. If it seems like none of your foundations look right or perform the way you want them to, why not check out Becca?
