How to get that winter glow


'Beauty' is something I often find myself revisiting throughout the year, especially during the warmer months when you want those more natural glowing looks. This has been an ongoing thought process since beginning my blog and it doesn't seem to matter how much I try and steer away from posting about all of my favourite products, I come right back to it again. Although seeing as this is my first beauty related post of 2018, it must be some kind of new record for me.

What kick-started my ever so slight obsession back into the makeup game again, was when the high end brand Becca Cosmetics invited me to go along and have a full makeover, or you could say, a "glow makeover." This came along just as the temperatures started to drop and the autumn come winter weather began.


Time to prime for that glowing look

Throughout the evening I was introduced to so many new and wonderful products from the glow range, that it was hard to pick out which ones I loved the most. It's always easier having a clear perspective after the event; and the next day this is exactly what happened  to me.  I woke up and I couldn't stop thinking about two products in particular.

So my first product of the evening is the "Backlight Priming Filter" for the prep and set stage. This product was kindly gifted to me by the girls at Becca in Cardiff, and I'm so pleased they did because I would have found myself going back and purchasing a bottle if they hadn't!

Meet your match 

Following the primer, we added my second favourite product of the evening, which I did indeed go back and purchase the following day. The "Ultimate Coverage 24 hour Foundation" is the perfect full coverage foundation for any daytime or evening look and it works well with so many other products from different brands.


The Becca Cosmetics Glow Collection offers so many wonderful products that I'm eager to go back and get to know more of them, especially the highlighters and eye shadows, which would be perfect for those Christmas work do's or nights out with friends.

I would love to hear what your favourite products are this winter, what you're loving from Becca Cosmetics right now and which brands are making you excited for Christmas!

With love, Alys

    1. That's a good question, and I'm not sure unfortunately. I've had a look on their website and you may be able to get international shipping. If not, you can probably go through Amazon to pick some up!

  10. I have only tried Becca highlighters before, seemed to have forgotten they do every else haha! I’ll have to check their shade range for foundation, I’ve been needing a new one that’s full coverage - does it oxidize? I also really love the palette in the last photo!

    1. The highlighters are next on my list! - no, and I'm really surprised about the fact it doesn't oxidize as a lot of my previous foundations have!

      Thanks for reading Sahara (:
