Sunrise Waves

Becca Sunrise Waves Gradient Sunlit Bronzer ($38.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a soft, golden brown with warm undertones and a golden sheen. The more I buffed and blended out the color, the browner it appeared and the shimmer gave it a glow without emphasizing my skin. The consistency was soft, slightly powdery in the pan, but it blended out with ease on my skin, so I’d just recommend tapping off excess in the pan to avoid over-application as well as waste. It had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to my skin, and it could easily be applied with a lighter hand or buffed out for sheerer coverage. On me, it wore well for eight and a half hours before fading slightly.

The powder contains slivers of: Sunlit Bronzers in Bali Sands, Capri Coast, and Bronzed Bondi along with a Highlighter in Opal. The brand says they can be used individually, but you’ll need to have small eye brushes to do so, as each strip of color was rather narrow. I found the design made it a little harder to get an even amount of each color without loading my brush up with quite a bit of product, so I found myself swirling, tapping off excess, swirling again, and then tapping off excess in an effort to get a little of each shade for even application.

A beautiful effect and a lovely bronzer. I like the shades, but they are a bit too shimmery I think. A couple of matte ones in there would have been good.

I’ve always been scared to wear a bronzer because I’m so fair and I’m worried about finding the right tone and shade for me but honestly I find this beautiful. Hopefully I can find this in store and test it out!

I feel like in the middle. I’m not pale and light, but right in between. But I do get a little bit of color in the summertime

I think it would work as long as you’re not looking for like… the barest addition of color if that makes sense. Like it will look like you’ve added a bit of bronzer to your eye, IMO!

Thanks, I’ve just ordered it and am looking forward to testing it out. If it’s a little dark I can just avoid the dark shade as it’s on one end of the compact.
