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:

    I use this product every day. I am not big into makeup but I love this foundation! I have tried Naked and Nars and I like both of those. But this is my favorite! It is light but provides adequate coverage. I do not have sensitive skin so not much bothers me. However, my sister has sensitive skin and it works great for her skin too! I would recommend this to anyone.

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

      I breakout with everything and I mean EVERYTHING! I can't even touch my face. This product has not made me break out. Ya got excellent coverage. Hard to blend at first but with practice it's gets better. Best thing iOS IT STAYS ON ALL DAY EVEN THROUGH SWEAT. Heavy heavy sweat will cause some streaking but barely. I love this product. A downside is the rest is hard to get out of the tube and so I have to cut it to use it all I really don't like that I wish they would change the packaging so that you know how much you have left and you use every bit of it.

        I use this product every day to even out my skin tone, and as a sunscreen. It is one of the few BB creams that matches my skin tone which is a fair to medium, with a little yellow. It also provides me with the right amount of coverage.

              I first received a sample size in my monthly ipsy box. Fell in love that this was the first product I could find that gave me my foundation appearance, just without drying out my skin like a foundation would. I had to get the full size as I ran out.

                    I used this foundation for years and decided I needed to try something new but after 8 months I had to go back to this easy you to use and flawless product. I'm 55 and I think less is more looks better on me and this fits the bill while supplying great coverage. I use a small amount, apply with my fingers and done. Great in humidity type weather to winter so I dont need to change products. Can't say enough about this for daily, weekend and evening it works.

                        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.
