Must add to Becca Foundation?
I have the Becca Foundation in Nude, a nice match to my skin color. Feels like I have nothing on. Problem is, looks like I have nothing on. I am wondering if I need to add this highlighter to the foundation to make it look like I have something on my skin, otherwise, I am not sure of the purpose of the foundation as it really looks as if I have nothing on my skin at all. Do you add the highlighter to the foundation to get some effect, or is the highlighter a separate product that you use as a highlighter for your cheek bones, etc?

on Shimmering Skin Perfector SPF 25+
A great foundation is supposed to look as if there is NOTHING on your skin--it sounds like you have a winner with this! For more color, opt for a blush in your skintone ("warm" or "cool"). This perfector would be great to add radiance to cheekbones or wherever you want extra emphasis or "oomph."
When my skin looks really good this looks really good. Have been using Amore Pacific serum; never have been impressed with any skin care product but can say after a week this has made my skin glow. Hence this ever so light not even as thick as most TM, looks lovely on my glowing skin. The key to success on this product is to have glowing clear skin without anything that needs covering. It is moisturizing, and then adds a hint of color with some SPF.
I use the highlighter after I apply my foundation. Usually to the top of my cheekbones, brown bones, and upper lip. If you do apply it with your foundation I would only do it to your cheek area so you don't look oily.
It's not a foundation, it's a base, so it's won't add color to your skin. But rather it is designed to creat a great pallette upon which to apply your foundation, concealer, bronzer, highlighter, etc. I wasn't overly impressed with it for this purpose either, and found it just OK. I may set it aside and revisit it as the weather warms a bit. It's very light, imo.
Becca's foundation is more meant to be a tinted moisturizer. It is not meant to give a huge amount of coverage, it is just to even out skin tone. You can add the shimmering skin perfector to the foundation. It will not give the foundation more coverage, it will just add dewiness to the skin.
