Backlight Priming Filter

1.0 oz Item 2291329

Find in Store-

More than just a primer, it's the secret behind the iconic BECCA glow. Infused with three unique Filtering Luminescent Pearls, each one adds a different drop of diffused light. Blended together, they result in a first of its kind, lightweight, whipped fluid that creates a smooth canvas and acts as an instant filter. Blurs imperfections and gives skin a healthy, luminescent glow.

Find your glowing skin look with the BECCA Glow Glossary - with six glows to choose from #DefineYourLight.

Apply a thin layer to moisturized skin from the center of the face outward. Wait a few seconds and apply makeup as usual or wear alone.

    Comments about BECCA Backlight Priming Filter:

    As someone whose skin tends to err on the oily side, I've always been searching for s product that gives me that "glow" without looking like an oil slick. I'm also someone who tends to want simplicity in their makeup routine-so a primer that looked great just worn by itself was my ultimate goal. I'm happy to say that this Becca primer fits all my requirements! I also have sensitive skin and this hasn't given me any issues at all! It blends well, gives my skin that little extra "something", and has gotten me lots of compliments!

    Most days I will just wear this primer with a little bit of NARS concealer under my eyes (in addition to my normal routine of mascara and tinted brow gel) and I'm good to go! It's a great product if you want a fairly low-maintenance "natural" look.

        I've tried to save a money on primer, but have never found a 'budget' friendly primer that works. I spend more than I would like on Becca Backlight Priming Filter, but it actually enhances the look and feel of my foundation. I have a radiant, stay put look, all day long. So many compliments on how great my skin looks. Just over 50, so I'll take those compliments all day long. :)

            I love this product. I tried all kinds of primers before settling for this one. I am 55 and some primers can make my skin look dull, others too shiny and age me ( the last thing I need right?) This one doesn't. I use a little bit of it under a CC cream and it looks natural and adds a perfect glow to my face. The ratings and reviews are right about this one!

                I didn't ever think to buy this since I have an oily T-zone, however the girl gave me a sample to try. I took it home and used it consistently and loved it! It will definitely be my winter primer under a matte foundation!

                            This is a primer which will help blur the skin and give a very soft glow to the skin to help eliminate any imperfections, but we recommend to sue foundation over top if you are looking to even out the skin.

                            Whereas Backlight Priming Filter uses pearls that diffuse light to blur imperfections and provide a luminous glow that evens skin.

                          Can the BECCA Backlight Priming Filter be used under a power foundation? I tend to wear powder foundation(Clinique Superpowder Double Face) because I don't usually have the time to apply liquid foundation.

                            Hi beauty! yes, our Backlight Priming Filter can be used under a powder foundation. You would apply the primer first and blend into skin thoroughly. The proceed by using your powder foundation for a natural finish with a hint of luminosity xoxo
