Beauty for Breakfast Pt. 22

bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream

After watching a makeup how-to video by Nicole Loher recently and reading an article on WhoWhatWear, I learned a new word to add to my vocabulary. BB Cream. I’m still not sure what the BB stands for because when it comes to makeup, I’m just awful, but what I took from the article was that I needed to have it. A BB Cream is kind of what you would call a tinted moisturizer. It is often used for when you need something for your daily look and a) don’t have time or b) don’t want to put that much effort into your face. For the longest time, I thought my Benefit light oxygen foundation was something like a tinted moisturizer, but it just isn’t. It is truly a foundation. For the first couple of weeks, I was wearing my Olay moisturizer with the BB Cream and then my foundation and only recently realized that I was overdoing it. The BB Cream does exactly what I want it to do and gets the job done so I have since eliminated the foundation except for certain occasions. I’m so impressed by how great the BB Cream neutralizes my skin tone and easily makes it all one shade in a very simple way while keeping it moisturized all day. You really only need to use a pea-sized drop of it. According to bareMinerals, it’s one of their best selling products too! I use it in “Ginger.”
