You Da BB Bomb

To carry over from yesterday's Something You...Make Up Artistry Advent Calendar of Loveliness about staying hydrated, I want to talk about one of my FAVORITE products of all times, the BB Cream! Specifically Dr. Jart+ US Water Fuse!

So, you're probably asking "what IS a BB cream?" because they are the latest things and are literally everywhere {read: in every line} right now. A BB Cream (BB=Beauty Balm) was originally developed as a "post-procedure" cream to treat, hydrate, prime, protect, and camouflage. They're perfect for every skin type, especially those with sensitive skin, and are formulated to do it all! BB Creams treat the skin with high levels of active skincare ingredients; moisturize and smooth dehydrated skin; prime and perfect skin’s surface; camouflage and color correct the skin tone; and protect skin from the sun with SPF. They can be used as a last step for their skincare benefits or used on their own as an instant beautifier.

I typically recommend Dr. Jart WaterFuse to clients who are fair skinned, as they only have one shade, but have been surprised at how broad the spectrum of skin tones it can cover beautifully. I always suggest that one spend on skin care & foundation if there needs to be choice made and a high quality BB Cream takes care of both things at once.

Personally, I use mine as a "one step wonder" directly out of the shower and it's the perfect thing for the person-on-the-go, be it mommy, student or any carbon based being, really. A little mascara & creme blush...boom, wide awake!

You can get this (and many other amazing Dr. Jart products) at a friendly neighborhood SEPHORA near you or at…
