No it doesn't - you need your own. A brush would be best or even your finger to highlight smaller areas.

I am fair and have Moonstone. It is a very natural match for fair skin! If you wanted more of a pop, go with Opal -- and it would likely work for summer when there's more color in the skin (or over a blush in winter).

Probably the Opal because it is warmer and will balance out the yellow. I use Moonstone becaue of my red undertones.

Hi There,
Moonstone would be beautiful on your fair skin. The color is soft with a light golden undertone. If your looking to add a bit of color to the area that your highlighting go for the Opal. To be honest you cant go wrong, as each of these colors work amazing on all skin types.

I have very fair skin and purchased Moonstone. It's a very light gold. it doesn't make you look "bronzy" at all. Adds more of a highlight to your skin. I'm planning on trying Opal next purchase. I do like Moonstone for my skin tone though. Hope this helps.

Without a doubt, moonstone. It has a nice golden tone that actually has blue undertones, so it won't make your olive skin too yellow or ruddy looking.

Opal or Topaz would be lovely on your olive skin, both these shade will work with the warmth of your skin and add the perfect amount of glow.

Moonstone is a little light an perfect for fair/light complexions. But Opal is a little rose gold-y which is still beautiful.

I think moonstone would be a perfect highlighter for you. I have them both, and opal definitely packs a lot of color. It looks like a shimmery blush or something. Moonstone has no pink or other colors, just a slight moon-like glow.

I would not recommend topaz unless you are fair, because it didn't showup on my medium olive asian skin tone.

answer 3
I think moonstone could look quite nice on you because there is no pink in it. There is some pink in opal. Since, your skin is medium, moonstone would probably show up beautifully on you. My skin is fair, so moonstone sort of disappears.

The Shimmering Skin Perfector is more of a luminizor than an actual foundation. We suggest taking a look at the Becca Foundations here> http://www.sephora.com/perfect-skin-mineral-powder-foundation-P377045, as the foundation descriptions are much clearer. We also invite you to give us a call at 1-877-SEPHORA for additional help choosing a shade.

whats a liquid binder
asked 8 months ago
nickelton
on Shimmering Skin Perfector™ Pressed
2 answers
Answers
answer 1
I think what you are asking about, "liquid binder" is something that will adhere the powder to the skin, such as a tinted moisturizer or foundation. This does need something to keep it on or it rubs off. If used with a moisturizer or foundation, it will set the powder and keep it from easily rubbing off.

As I understand it, a liquid binder is a substance that keeps moisture "attached" to your skin for a radiant glow and a soft, moist finish.

answer 2
I would go with moonstone. It will blend nicely with a light tan, but fair undertones and it's kind of one of those universally flattering colors. Opal is really pretty on very light skin tones, but on darker tones, it can be a bit iridescent and unflattering on even slightly darker, tanned skin.
