BECCA Cosmetics Shimmering Rose and Gold make-up at ULTA Cosmetics display

Australian Brand BECCA Cosmetics new  “All that Glitters is Gold” Gold Rush collection offers gold-inspired hues that are perfect for Valentine’s Day or a special evening out to give you subtle and shimmering highlights.  The collection features a new brush called the One Perfecting Brush in Champagne Gold, Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Powder in Champagne Gold and BECCA’s award winning Ultimate Coverage Complexion Crème.  As someone who is always interested in quality cosmetics, I’ve been impressed by BECCA.  I love the understated rose-gold tones in the Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Powder for subtle highlights. I’m also a big fan of the  smooth make-up application that the One Perfecting Brush provides.  There’s a few reasons I’ll be using the BECCA Cosmetics & the One Perfecting Brush for some upcoming parties during Los Angeles Award Season and New York Fashion Week.

BECCA Cosmetics recently held a special event in Los Angeles at the new ULTA Flagship Store on Santa Monica Boulevard with their styling director Kerry Cole.  Kerry gave us some great tips on how to use the BECCA Cosmetics, especially the One Perfecting Brush.  I’m always looking for better ways to use make-up,  and with the One Perfecting Brush, you can give your skin an ultra smooth application of primer, foundation, powder and finally blush with the brush’s long flexible brushes.  According the Kerry, “the brush is designed to be anti-bacterial.”  It’s also easy to clean using mild, alcohol-free soap or baby shampoo. The brush is  a great way to do contouring of your blush on your cheekbones to create a more defined look.  To learn how to best use the brush, check out Kerry Cole’s One Brush Tutorial’s on YouTube.

The brush is a must-have if you travel, as it saves space–you don’t have to pack multiple brushes to apply your make-up while you’re on the road. Look for BECCA Cosmetics at ULTA and other leading beauty retailers and watch Kerry Cole’s YouTube videos to learn how to best use the products after you shop.
