Best of The What: Beauty
Lately we’ve received a slew of reader emails asking for reminders of past products we mentioned. So, we thought it might be helpful to rustle up every skin and beauty product we’ve ever featured on The What. No need to scroll through our archives. Every single product featured here are things we actually use and love. You’ll find them all in our makeup bags and vanity tables. Not a mediocre mention in the bunch.
GP’s recipe for a flawless “natural” glow is one pump of Becca Shimmer Skin Perfector in Opal with one pump of IQ Beauty SheerActivity Base. IQ Beauty Sheer comes in one shade that works for all skin tones, from deep to translucent. Paired with Becca Skin Perfector, skin takes on a dewy, smooth, shimmery glow. You’ll have to experiment to get the right ratio for you but every time we wear this combo even strangers remark on our skin.
