BB Tip 1: BB any way you want. Use it as a primer. Use it for light coverage. Use it however you see fit!

BB Tip 2: Don't use too much! Just a pea size will do. (Hint: if you need more coverage, see tip #3. No need for lots of layers.)

BB Tip 3: Looks great alone for quick, camera-ready skin. Or pair BB with your favorite foundation for more coverage. We adore it with Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder.

BB Tip 4: Have dry skin? Still moisturize first. Have oily/combination skin? BB is all you'll need.

BB Tip 5: Regular use will improve your skin! BB is loaded with anti-aging peptides for a decrease in fine lines over time, plus it guards against harmful rays with SPF 35.

            Comments about Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 35:

            This foundation is great for people who have minimal redness and do NOT have dry skin. I have a slightly dry nose, so I moisterized the holy heck out of it, exfoliated it, and put on smashbox primer- at this point, my nose looked and felt baby soft. However, when I put this BB Cream on, it STILL made my nose look dry and cakey yet provided minimal coverage for any redness on my nose.
            My forehead, however, is NOT dry, and although it had a few little red spots, the cream when on smooth, looked very natural, and made the skin tone look even.
            If you're looking for a product that won't bring out your dry skin, I've found that Milani 2 in 1 is pretty good for not showing the dryness too much AND providing decent coverage if your skin isn't flawless. It does run dark though, so if you're very fair, you may want to check a different product out (I consider myself a very light olive and had to get their very lightest color).

              This product has much more coverage than I was expecting it to, and I am impressed! This covers my acne and dark spots while letting my freckles show through. I will be purchasing again.

                    I thought it would apply much easier. I prepped with lancome liquid care hydrated and it felt like I was applying diaper rash cream to my face and it did not control my oily t zone at all. I still had to use oil blotting papers 3 + times per day. I returned and am you g back to jane irdale, and lancome.

                    I've used BB creams from the drugstore for quite a while but wasn't happy with the coverage and amount of concealer I needed to use to compensate. This BB offers the perfect amount of natural, buildable coverage for me, matches my skin just right in the Fair/Light shade, good oil control, and a decent SPF to boot. My skin is also pretty acne prone and Smashbox seems to be actually improving my skin which is a nice change. It does dry quickly on application, so I recommend applying in smaller sections and blending well so it doesn't streak, and I wish it wasn't so expensive for a little tube but my skin loves it so it's worth the cost every few months.

                          We recommend the Fair shade. It is ideal for porcelain and fair complexions. when in doubt it's always best to try it out in person at your nearest Ulta Beauty store! :-)

                        Is this waterproof?

                          Hi Carmela! While BB Cream is long lasting it does not claim to be waterproof. If your looking for a long wear foundation we suggest our Studio Skin Foundation paired with Photo Finish Primer. It will give you a 15 hour wear that will last and last.

                          Visit your nearest Ulta Store for a custom color match by one of our Beauty Artists.
