I've always been a fan of full-coverage makeup. My fair skin, uneven tones, and dark under-eye circles all show through really light makeup, so liquid foundation is what I always gravitate to.
BB creams took the retail markets by storm a few years ago, and lots of women were raving about how nice the lightness of the product was, while still delivering a fair amount of color. Plus, BB Creams offered a primer, hydration, spf, and sometimes other important skin benefits.
I, of course, jumped right on board but I couldn't find one that would last all day, and offer enough coverage that I felt comfortable with. For simple makeup days, I would love the option of going a little lighter on the makeup, without feeling like I'm totally naked-faced.
I tried Revlon PhotoReady BB Cream™ Skin Perfector, and wow, was I impressed. Of all the BB cream's I've tried thus far, this one delivered the most amount of coverage, while still being light and feeling breathable. I could smell the SPF, which is a good thing, and it melted into my skin beautifully. The only thing I used to set this BB cream with was a light dusting of powder. And I didn't need to touch up for the rest of the day. It's an "ever so slightly" luminous cream that doesn't look too shiny or dewy.
I used the lightest formula (there are four in total), but I think a combination of light and light/medium would be perfect for my skin color right now. And if I manage to get any sort of tan this summer, grabbing the darker of the two shades will be perfect. It's good to avoid heavy makeup if you have a tan anyway, as it can sometimes look "grey" on darker skin.
I love that I have found an option for the days where my makeup is lighter.
Summer is all about keeping it simple and light. The humidity and blazing sun rays will inevitably melt both my hair and makeup, so finding alternatives that will last all day without looking too heavy is high on my priority list!
