Since we are coming into the warmer months (at least here in Southern California), some of us may not feel like wearing a full coverage foundation everyday. When it is hot out, the last thing you want to worry about is your makeup literally melting off of your face- am I right?! However, it doesn't mean that we are going bare! A great alternative to a thicker foundation is BB cream- you know the magical little bottle that promises to lighten, tighten, prime, conceal, and hydrate skin all in one. BB creams are great because they are lighter in consistency than a typical foundation, while still giving off a generous amount of coverage. You can even layer it up over problematic areas to create a concealer. BB creams also act as primers, which allows you to eliminate one more layer of product on your face in the summer heat!
My holy grail BB cream is Dior Snow UV BB Cream with SPF 50. Not only does it provide amazing coverage, it also gives off a great dewy finish and a high SPF (without looking or feeling like sunscreen! Hooray!!). I picked mine up at Nordstrom for $58.00.
Let me know what your favorite BB creams are!
