We’ve previously discussed the benefits and popularity of BB creams out there nowadays, and have discovered a new love for these products myself. BB creams, or “beauty balms” are essentially multi-tasking creams that are used disguise imperfections through their all-in-one properties of being a primer, foundation, sunblock, reduce the appearance of lines, provide skin protection.
Through these properties, pore size is diminished, fine lines and blemishes are disguised, and a smooth, seamless coverage is visible to the naked eye and camera.
A favorite in particular is ‘stila stay all day 10-in-1 HD beauty balm’. The product applies in a silky and blend able texture that matches skin-tones evenly and secretly. The best part about it is that it provides a dewy-appearance without the look of a “made-up” face. Follow up with a pink cheek, mascara, and a clear gloss and you’re ready for the day.
Another product to try? ‘Erase Paste’ by benefit cosmetics. This product features a brightening agent which blends with the pigment of your skin, ranging in three shades — fair, medium, and deep — providing a fool-proof match to any skin tone. Simply apply under the eyes, or disguise facial blemishes and unevenness. The brightening agent makes you appear awake and refreshed, and applies with a silky-smooth coverage. Take a look at a recent photoshoot we did with Erin McGinn photography where benefit’s erase paste was used !
Both are amazing products, have any of you used them? Any other products you all rave about!?
