Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35


By now I am sure you all have heard of/ are on the BB [beauty balm] Cream train.

This product will totally/completely/ without a doubt make you camera ready.  I'm pretty sure Smashbox is holding the crown for being one of the most popular BB creams out there right now.  

First off, it has SPF 35, so that's fabulous as we should all be wearing SPF daily...but I'm sure you already knew that.  It's super lightweight and perfectly blend-able.  Bonus: it comes in five shades so, hopefully, you wouldn't have trouble finding your perfect match. 



Your treating your skin by moisturizing and priming...you're protecting with the SPF...and your covering up flaws with the tint.  I've found the Smashbox BB Cream helps to create a great canvas for makeup application...and it's also fine totally on its own without makeup.  I generally only wear this bb cream while at work, I'll add some NARS Orgasm Multiple during the day to add some color if I feel like it, but I find I don't need concealer and I don't even need bronzer.

The best part about the Camera Ready BB Cream is that you will definitely notice a difference in your skin's texture and appearance over the course of using it..and that's the point of a beauty balm, you're treating your skin while still using it as a "makeup".  Think of how important your nighttime skincare ritual is and all the construction work that does, and translate that to bb cream during construction work during the day.

PS: While many bb creams tout themselves as being your only morning process, I still use AM moisturizer before applying the bb cream.  Try doing this, if you feel you're too shiny or just aren't happy with the appearance don't do it, but I think you'll find an added benefit in using your daily moisturizer and then applying your bb cream!
