Be Your Own Light Source with BECCA's Backlight Priming Filter

You know that glow you get from standing in the sun just a little too long? If you’ve ever wanted to have that without the risk of sun damage, the BECCA Backlight Priming Filter is for you.


I’m not the most well-versed on foundation primers, mainly because I don’t wear foundation. But the BECCA Backlight Priming Filter is an absolute game-changer when it comes to how your skin looks with and without makeup. Slather this on your entire face and it creates a smooth, glowy canvas for any level of makeup. It’s also pretty sheer, which means it works with all skin tones.

BECCA is mostly known for their Shimmering Skin Perfectors and cult-followed collab with beauty guru Jaclyn Hill, but the Backlight Priming Filter is the real MVP. The beauty brand takes that light-reflecting technology, dilutes it down a bit, and helps your skin catch every ounce of light possible. You’ll want to put this on your face every day (and I recommend doing just that).

My ultimate recommendation is to pair it with their Aqua Luminous Perfecting Concealer and a few dabs of the Shimmering Skin Perfector for the no-makeup-makeup look you’ve been dreaming of.
