Becca Bright Eyes Collection Review: Anti-Fatigue Under Eye Primer, Under Eye Brightening Corrector, and Under Eye Brightening Setting Powder

*deep breath* Hi. My name is Cristine, and I’m a zombie.

Ok, not really, but my dark circles are so intense, some days I feel like I should be at a support group for zombies. I wake up looking like an extra from The Walking Dead, and if I don’t wear make up I get asked if I’m ill. Yeah, it’s that bad.

I’ve included photos for every step of the process, plus comparisons to the other color correcting products I own. Is the Becca Bright Eyes Collection right for you? Let’s find out!

A Few of My Favorite Unconventional Lipsticks + Tips On How To Wear Them

Unless you were born gravitating toward bold or alternative makeup styles, at some point in your life you’ve probably wistfully gazed at an out-of-the-ordinary lip color and thought “ugh, I wish I could wear that.” Maybe you feel like it’s too daring for you, maybe you work in a conservative environment or have people in your life that would make rude remarks about your choices, or possibly it’s the concern I hear all the time “I’m too old for that.” Um, first of all, you’re not. You can wear whatever makes you feel good about yourself at any age, provided it’s on your own time. That’s true of all of the other reasons people have for not wearing what they want to wear. At the end of the day, it’s not that big of a deal, makeup washes off. But something that is a big deal is you feeling confident and powerful enough to wear the things that you love, that show the world who you are. Clearly I have some strong feelings about makeup, and trust me, I could go on about this for quite awhile, but that’s not the point of this post. Today I’m sharing a round up of some of my favorite unconventional shades of lipstick and lip gloss in hopes of helping you find something that you’ll love. I’ll also share some of my tips for wearing unconventional colors that will be helpful whether you’re a dabbler or a first-timer in these bold hues.
