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.

                      I LOVE this product! I have never been a fan of BB or CC creams because they were always so sheer that it never evened out my complexion but THIS product does just that. It's a perfect little bit to wear everyday but I don't ever feel under-done when I want to go all out with eyes and lips. I use a moisturizer, prime with either Smashbox Primer Water or Maybelline Master Prime Blur + Smooth and apply with a Beauty Blender. I hardly ever add any powder except under my eyes and finish with Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray and it stays with me for some of my really long days bordering on 12-15 hours depending on my schedule.

                      The best part is that it also works pretty well without primer or setting spray which I sometimes do for weekend errands. Doesn't last quite as long but the coverage is still good, consistent and I don't require a lot.

                          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.

                          A:

                          Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream is not formulated with any resurfacing actives, so it is safe to use it in conjunction with your retinol cream. It's actually a good idea, since it provides SPF 35 sun protection, which is important when using retinol in your skincare regimen, as skin is more susceptible to sun damage. :-)

                          A:

                          Great question! :-) The proper order of application depends on how you use BB!

                          Have dry skin? Still moisturize first, before applying BB. Have oily/combination skin? BB is all you'll need.

                          BB features the built-in benefits of a primer, so using an additional primer is optional. When using in conjunction with one of Smashbox's Photo Finish Primers, we recommend applying Photo Finish first (after moisturizing if you have dry skin) only to areas of concern such as the T-zone, then following with an all-over application of BB.

                          BB looks great alone for quick, camera-ready skin. Or pair BB with your favorite foundation for more coverage, applied on top of BB. We adore it with Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder.

                          Hope this helps! :-)
