Ever since I started watching Lisa Eldridge’s makeup tutorials, the Becca Shimmering skin perfector has been at the top of my wish list. But when Becca finally came back into Space NK, I just couldn’t do it. 33 pounds for a product I could only buy online so couldn’t even swatch? Becca is now available in selected Space NK stores, but I think I have found a good alternative. Is it a dupe? I wish I could make that statement. Maybe those who own both can help me out?
The Autograph liquid glow illuminator is part of the Marks and Spencer makeup range. For 9.50 pounds , you get 30ml of product, which I think is a great deal. It come with a handy pump. I have the shade natural, there also is a bronze.
How to use it
– As an illuminating base under makeup
– mixed in with your foundation to make it lighter and more dewy
– as a liquid highlighter on top of foundation
This is a very subtle product, which I love. It has absolutely no visible glitter particles. What it does is it catches the light in a way that looks glowy, but natural. You can sheer it out a lot or leave it quite dense, as in the photo below on my hand.
The two drugstore alternatives I am aware of are the L’Oreal lumi magique primer and the new Seventeen Skin Wow! 3 way highlighter. I haven’t tried either, so please leave your comments if you have.
