We recommend shade Light Year (4) for medium deep or light tan skin tones with yellow, slight yellow undertones.
Medium - Medium Deep
Becca Light Year (4) is described by the brand as "Tan with neutral undertones." It is a shade in the Light Shifter Dewing Tint range, which is a tinted moisturizer foundation with a luminous finish and sheer coverage that retails for $30.00 and contains 1 oz.
Becca Light Year (4) Light Shifter Dewing Tint ($30.00 for 1 oz.) is a lighter, warm brown with warmer, yellow undertones paired with a luminous, moderately dewy finish--it was both glowy while also being very subtly pearlescent. The product dried down for the most part, though it was not fully transfer-proof, so it retained a bit of a "wet" sheen and didn't appear overtly shimmery when applied all-over or as a more targeted highlighter.
The texture was lightweight, spreadable, and easy to blend out for all-over use or applied on cheek bones--both bare skin or on top of base products. It felt more like a gel-cream, which I've always found tends to be most versatile in spread but definitely will sheer out noticeably. It had sheer coverage when applied all over my skin, while I had more semi-sheer, buildable (to about medium) coverage when I patted it onto my cheeks as a luminous bronzer (based on my skin tone). It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours as a highlighter and nine hours as a base product.
