While we women are no less beauty conscious today than we ever were, many of us have become more health-aware. As technology brings more and more knowledge into our homes, placing it right at our very fingertips via the Internet, we are naturally becoming much more discerning shoppers.
Our increased knowledge has also brought with it an unprecedented demand for quality and safety in the products we buy. We’ve learned that cosmetics needn’t be harmful to make us beautiful, that we don’t have to trade our health for an attractive appearance, and that good health will, in fact, impart a glow that will only enhance the beauty our cosmetics provide. And all of that is good news.
Now that we know these natural beauty secrets, we have only to find a dependable line of beauty products that can bring a healthy radiance to our skin without bombarding our bodies with harmful chemical additives. One such collection is the Becca line of natural cosmetics.
Becca cosmetics contain a wide variety of natural ingredients to pamper, purify, and protect your skin, while providing a naturally flawless finish. From antioxidant-rich SPF-30 Mineral Primer to natural Mineral Powder Foundation and lusciously luxurious moisturizing lip color, Becca cosmetics offer you the confidence that your beauty will be more than skin-deep when you treat your skin to the array of ingredients that come straight from nature to you.
Becca Boudoir Skin Mineral Powder Foundation is one perfect example. Containing antioxidant Vitamins A (Retinol), B, C, and E, this formula is completely free of parabens, oil, phenoxyethanol, chemical dyes, fragrance, and talc. When applied over moisturized skin, this natural mineral powder foundation provides flawless coverage that’s water-resistant and long lasting. This foundation is available in five shades: Bloom (a neutral, fair-medium shade), Rapture (a light tan shade), Dream (a medium neutral-yellow shade), Desire (a warm medium shade), and Bliss (a light-fair neutral shade). Natural Aloe and Honeysuckle extracts, Jojoba, and Safflower Seed Oils round out this formula, nurturing your skin and giving it a new radiance.
Becca Sheer Tint Lip Color is another popular member of the Becca natural product lineup. This rich formula moisturizes lips while providing a sheer mantle of color. Ultra-rich emollients, including Shea Butter, Cocoa Seed Butter, Cylindrica Seed Oil, and Castor Seed Oil combine with Beeswax and natural Honey Extract to nourish and beautify your lips. This item is available in seven vibrant shades to help you create the look you love: Yasmina (a mauvy nude shade), Estella (a baby-pink tinted nude shade), Vendela (a rosy nude shade), Milla (a black currant shade), Gisela (a caramel nude shade), Laelia (a peachy nude shade), and Alina (a sheer reddish orange shade). Whichever shade you choose, you’ll know you’ve selected a lip color that will hydrate and beautify, while letting the natural glow of your lips shine through.
The Becca Cosmetics Three-Piece Natural Nudes Lip Collection is another Becca lip color that provides a variety of looks, while infusing your lips with skin-enhancing nutrients. The dual-ended lip liner pencil, which contains Coconut Oil, Fruit Wax, and Coco-Glycerides, consists of a nude end to create fuller lips and prevent color bleeding, and a darker end to provide definition. The striking silver tube of Sheer Tint Lip Color, containing Castor Seed Oil, Honey Extract, and Beeswax, provides sheer, lightweight coverage for a completely natural look. As an optional final coat, the Vitamin E-enriched Glossy Lip Tint provides added color and a high-shine finish.
The Line Plus Illuminate Pencil, a Becca Cosmetics mainstay, is a dual-ended pencil designed for use in defining, lining, contouring, and illuminating the eyes. This versatile member of the Becca lineup features smooth, velvety eye liner formulas that virtually glide on for easy, trouble-free application and more precise lines. Use the darker liner end to define the lash line and the illuminator end to highlight the inner eye or brow areas or even as a cream eye shadow.
The Line Plus Illuminate Pencil contains Coconut and Castor Oils, Fruit Wax, and Titanium Dioxide, a natural mineral sunscreen. Available in five color-coordinated duos to help you create the perfect look: Ibiza (kohl black liner and glittery gold illuminator), Mustique (rich brown liner and shimmery pink illuminator), Madagascar (light brown liner and glittery goldenrod illuminator), Fiji (dark brown liner and glittery green illuminator), and Capri (kohl black liner and glittery silver illuminator). Use a lighter touch for daytime wear, while applying more heavily for a more dramatic evening look.
The Becca Cosmetics Collection, a specially formulated Australian brand, emphasizes the natural look that’s become so popular today. The company, founded by Rebecca Morrice Williams as part of her quest to find the “perfect” foundation, aspires to help all women, regardless of age or ethnicity, achieve a radiant and flawless complexion while creating their most beautiful look. At the basis of the Becca beauty regimen is a carefully designed three-step process: Prepare, Perfect, and Set. This process, developed by National Makeup Artist and Trainer Jo Levy, integrates perfectly with the Becca cosmetics line to help women achieve their most energetic beauty goals.

What’s currently in my purse. ♥ & currently what I bring to work everyday.
I am missing my iPod touch though.. it was sadly left in my mother’s car two days ago. Hopefully it will turn up soon as it’s very hot out. I’m also missing my Blackberry… a must for any young professional, I guess.
B/c of very recent personal health concerns (re: life changing) I have now made it a must to carry a small photobook of everyone/thing that makes me smile.
(You can see the original here from 2006. Scary how things change.)
