1. First Light Priming Filter
Why people love it: One of Becca’s newest products on the shelf, the First Light Priming Filter is a highly raved product by many beauty vloggers, including Kathleen Lights. Kathleen mentioned in her January favourites that this primer gives her the glow as well as the hydration she required as someone with dry skin. Some consumers have mentioned on Sephora (US) that it feels light on the skin and worked as close as a moisturiser, while others love to use it because of the wakening effect due to its citrusy smell.
How to use: Before your foundation, apply it on to your entire face for that glow and dewy look.

2. Backlight Priming Filter
Why people love it: If you’re not a fan of the citrusy smell of the First Light Priming Filter, then the Backlight Priming Filter may just be the right primer for you. This is a primer that helps to smooth out your skin texture and gives you the “lit-from-within” look! In addition, it helps to extend the longevity of your makeup, and many who have tried said that you could do without a highlighter with this primer.
How to use: Use under a foundation or alone. Apply it on your T-zone or your entire face for different effects.

3. Under Eye Brightening Corrector
Why people love it: Living in one of the busiest city states in the world, most Singaporeans definitely suffer from dark eye circles due to long hours of work, along with juggling with social life. This concealer is well-loved for its ability to cover dark circles, as it colour-corrects bluish veins and brighten the eye area, making it looking brighter without being too “fake”.
How to use: Apply a thin layer of this creamy goodness on the under eye area before foundation, and use concealer in the same area thereafter. Set it with powder to prevent any possibility of creasing.

4. Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme
Why people love it: Despite being a foundation, the Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme is lightweight and provide a decent amount of coverage at the same time. It gives a natural matte finish but does not appear to be cakey. A thin layer of the foundation is sufficient to cover imperfections, as well as redness of the skin. It is also super long-wearing with minimal oxidation.
How to use: This foundation is best used with the One Perfecting Brush (sold separately). Simply pump the foundation over the bristles of the brush and work it into your skin from your forehead to the chin, as well as the perimeter of your face. Otherwise, pump the foundation once at the back of your hand then use your finger to dab it all over your face. Simply use a beauty blender or any other makeup sponge to blend it over your entire face. You can also build coverage by layering where necessary.

5. Blotting Powder Perfector – Translucent
Why people love it: This powder is a must-have for those with combination or oily skin. Many have raved about how it helps to keep oily skin at bay for a considerable long period of time while not disturbing the makeup or becoming cakey. It does not leave a white cast upon application and mattifies makeup beautifully.
How to use: After foundation, simply apply to set your makeup. You can also use it throughout the day to mattify your makeup for a less dewy look. If you own many glossy and shiny lippies, this can transform them into a matte look when you dust over it your glosses.

6. The One Perfecting Brush
Why people love it: The bristles of the brushes are super soft and are enhanced with shed-resistance technology so you can keep it for a longer time. The brush leaves base products with a flawless finish while some others loved it for the ease of contouring and highlighting of their face.
Bonus point: There is a limited edition rose gold version of the brush selling at the same price!
How to use: This patent-pending brush is a multi-tasker that you can use to replace almost all of your makeup brushes!
- Foundation: Simply pump the foundation on the brush and use the broad side to make the magic work. Sweep it from your forehead all the way down to your chin, and vertically down the nose with the narrow base to complete this step.
- Contour: Use the narrow surface of the brush under the cheekbones, down sides of nose then around the temples.
- Highlight: Use the narrow surface of the brush on the high points of your face.
- Blush: Using the corner of the brush, blend blusher or tints into the apples of your cheeks in circular motions.

7. Beach Tint
Why people love it: With the shades named after fruits (super cute!), beach tint is a multipurpose product that can be used on the lips or on the cheeks. On top of the ease of application and how blend-able the product is, many raved about how beautiful the shades are, especially guava and watermelon.
Do not belittle this small tube! As the pigment is super concentrated, a little product goes a long long way. Upon application, it gives a subtle and natural looking flush without looking OTT.
How to use: Shake well and squeeze a small amount to apply on to your lips or cheeks using either your fingers or a makeup brush, according to your preference. This can be used under powders to enhance their colour.
Price: SGD38. Get it at Sephora stores.
8. Mineral Blush – Flower Child
Why people love it: Flower child stands out amongst other mineral blush because of how natural it finishes on the skin and the glow that comes along with it. The blush is super pigmented, thus little product is needed for every application. It is said to be able to last a whole day even on people with oily skin. Also, being a mineral blush, it reduces the possibility of breaking out.
How to use: Apply to the apples of your cheeks and blend it towards the temple. To increase intensity of the blush, you can apply a thin layer of beach tint (see #7) before applying mineral blush.

9. Highlight/Lowlight Palette Pressed
#Repost from @beccacosmetics – Lowlight/Highlight Perfecting Palette Pressed includes a high-payoff contouring powder and best-selling Shimmering Skin Perfector™ Pressed Opal for beautiful highlight. The rich pigment of the pressed version of Lowlight Sculpting Perfector creates a deeper, more defined contour that still looks as natural as the crème. #defineyourlight I’m jsut so in love with this brand. #FaveHighEndMakeup #BeccaCosmetics #BeccaLowlightHighlightPerfectingPalette #BeccaLowlight #BeccaHighlighter #TwoThousandAndPretty
Why people love it: Contouring and strobing fans, this is the perfect product for you! Although this product is not as highly raved as their primer or highlighter, the quality of the product leaves a deep impression to those who gave it a shot. It helps to contours the face naturally without being too warm or reddish. The highlighter is build-able for a more intense glow.
How to use: To contour, apply the Lowlight with a brush and write a “3”. Start from the centre of your forehead then moving down to the middle of the ear, following the hollow of your cheek. Sweep back to the ear and continue down along your jaw line. Blend it well for a natural contour look.
As for highlighting, use the Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed to write a C around your eye in one continuous sweep. Begin from the centre of your forehead and sweep all the way around the temple and the top of your cheekbone. Blend and build for your desired glow.
