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've been using this brand of foundation for about 8yrs. I've tried others and have always gone back. It's light on the skin, doesn't get oily, and never irritates my skin. I haven't had a pimple in years! You'll want a good primer w/ this, and I put a light power over it to help blend. Like a translucent power or something that matches your skin tone.

      This is the first BB Cream i've ever tried and I love it! I have oily skin and this keeps my face from getting oily most of my workday... better than any foundation I've ever used. It's easy to apply and blends well. Great for when I don't have time or don't eant to do a full face makeup. I will definitely purchase again.. but may limit to summer months due to cost

          I'm a boy who uses makeup to cover up small flaws. This Smashbox bb cream does an amazing job at covering my flaws, and making my skin look amazing without it looking like I have makeup on. I definitely do not like people to know I am wearing makeup and no one ever thinks I am... Looks very natural

              This product is very natural and a pretty finish to it. If you clean and wash your face after using then your skin should be fine but if you don't then it could give you a couple pimples here and there but nothing severe. Now obviously this is not full coverage, it really just evens out your skin and makes it look natural and flawless. It wears off a little but most of it stay on for the most part.

              It does say to apply more than once because it does fade a little. But that's expected from a BB cream. Other than that, perfect everyday coverage that doesn't break you out.
