Love BB Cream in the Summer!

Sorry-  I have been so busy lately- and have not been posting enough! I am ready to start again! I love BB cream in the summer- it is the perfect amount of coverage and includes SPF and moisturizer.

This is my BB cream process: I apply the BB cream with my finger or foundation sponge. Then I add some concealer under my eyes, MAC studio fix powder all over my face and finish with bronzer and blush. I find that the BB cream is a great foundation for the studio fix. Then through out the day I just add more powder as needed. This takes like three minutes- and I am ready to go!

I have four BB creams. Covergirl, Urban Decay, SmashBox and Tarte. I really like them all, but believe it or not my favorite is Covergirl. It is very moisturizing and great for sensitive skin.

All great BB creams. Also great for primer!

My favorite BB cream- Covergirl! And it is under seven dollars! So worth the buy. Also it is a much larger container than the other ones.

I also love the shade of the covergirl BB cream. The fair to light one is great for my skin. The other BB creams weren’t the right color for my skin. Go buy this great product! I love to find a good drugstore deal.

There are several BB creams I want to try. Always looking for a great one- and Sephora has tons of options!

This Benefit bb cream has one that has a lot more coverage than a normal BB. It is a foundation but has the benefits of a BB cream. 
Love bareMinerals products! This one is supposed to be great for sensitive skin- so need to try!

I have heard great things about Cover FX. Supposed to be great for sensitive skin. Also this BB cream mattifys skin- definitely worth trying!

So many BB creams to try! I am excited. My old favorite before BB cream was Aveeno tinted moisturizer which I can’t find anymore. Hate it when a company stops selling a product! Hope this helps you find a great BB cream!

It’s that time of the year…Bronzer Time

I am pale. Very pale. All through the year I use blush and bronzer- but during the summer I amp up the bronzer. I don’t get tan- I use SPF 85! So I fake it with bronzer.

One of my favorite ones is a bareMinerals product. Not surprising- I love their products. Warmth is one of my favorites. One of the best things about it is it is layerable. You can wear it lightly to just provide a little sun to your face. Or you can amp it up. It is great for my sensitive skin. Also one $20 container lasts forever.  I love, love, love this product.

I also love their cheek colors. I have Giddy Pink, Laughter and Aubergine and they are all great. They provide beautiful color without irritation. I can’t rave enough about them. Also, as I talked about in my post Breaking the bareMinerals rules, you can mix and match them with any foundation!

The beautiful Bare Minerals I have- Warmth,  Laughter, Aubergine and Giddy Pink. I recommend them all for a touch of color or more intense if you layer them.

Another bronzer that I just found that doesn’t bother my skin is Neutrogena Healthy Skin Blends in Natural Radiance Bronzer. It provides a pretty light color- it is subtle. But if you are looking for a more natural hint of color- this is what you need. It is great no matter how sensitive your skin in. And for around $11- it is a great price.

I want this so badly! Urban Decay Naked Flushed. The combination of three colors- all that are so pretty. And for $32 not too expensive.

This Laura Mercier Primer  looks really interesting. It goes on under your foundation and provides color. Would love to try it.
