I can’t even think about this dual-ended liner without getting a little verklempt. With a metallic bronze on one end and a rich violet with deep brown and purple propensities on the other, it makes my heart sing when I talk about it.
When I finally get around to writing that 10-volume unabridged edition of My Makeup History (by Karen and Tabs), Cabrera will get its own chapter. It’s one of my greatest pencil liner loves of all time.
This long-wearing golden peachy pink is an everyday summer staple of mine.
I this blush. There’s no other way to put it.
3. Their old-school makeup collection releases
They don’t do these as much as they used to, but if we took our hot tub time machine back a few years (OMG, I just saw a commercial for the sequel to this movie… WHY!?), we would see more frequent BECCA makeup collection releases, like 2011’s Halcyon Days (one of my faves) and 2012’s Balearic Love (those bronzy purple eyes, tho!!).
I’ve been wearing lovely Opal for years. This shimmery, peachy highlighter was my date to the Emmys last year.
5. Oh, the foundations…
So many formulas, so little time… And so many shades! What a wonderfully wide range.
BECCA’s foundations are beyond great if you like long-lasting full coverage. Back in 2012, Radiant Satin Finish was my ride-or-die.
BECCA’s Ombre Nudes Eye Palette may not light up the sky with fireworks, but its nude matte browns (most with cool gray undertones) blend like butter and make for bad-@ss blown-out smokey looks.
7. The old-school LE palettes, Part I: Halcyon Days
Speaking of BECCA palettes…for a couple years the Halcyon Days Palette was the one I always brought with me on vacations to warm places.
8. The old-school LE palettes, Part 2: Avalon
And I also have to give a shout-out to Avalon because it’s just so FREAKING BEAUTIFUL.
It was another one of my standbys back in the day, and I still use it sometimes too.
This liquid tint is my jam, dawg! Don’t be scurred by how bright and hot pink it looks coming out of the tube. It turns completely natural looking on lips and cheeks.
I LOVE lounging around in this one on lazy days.
10. Damselfly Blush
Another BECCA blush love — this one a delicate peachy coral.
Damselfly looks delicious with coral lipsticks and glosses and warm golden eyes.
