Photo Ready skin with a BB Cream? Yes please.

next
27

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 Creamβ„’ 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!

My best kept beauty secret is cornstarch on day old hair, or freshly washed hair to add texture for curls or up-dos. Use a big fluffy brush and lightly dust the cornstarch on to roots. It is a inexpensive alternative to aerosol dry shampoos and it works wonderfully for me. (I also use Chapstick as an eyelid primer – it keeps the eyeshadow from creasing and helps it go on smoothly.

As for my beauty secret: permanent eyeliner. Since I never wear much makeup to start with, all I have to do is add mascara and concealer and I’m ready to go! For formal occasions where you want a more dramatic look, you can smudge a little dark brown or black eyeshadow in the outer corners of your eyes for that smokey look. It’s great!

I started using the Olay Pro-X brush about 6 months ago. I use it with any face wash I wish. It has made a huge difference! I’ve always been one to have a random zit on my face at any given time, but not any more. For real. It’s similar to the Clarisonic, but much cheaper. This goes for $30.

Also worth mentioning is Origins Make a Difference skin rejuvenating treatment lotion. It’s like a toner. It’s best for combination dry skin. I swipe it on in the morning before I put anything on my skin and after I wash my face at night. I love this product! It definitely helps with any dry skin issues. It leaves your face feeling clean, moisturized, and refreshed.

Hi Kate!

I would recommend trying Jane Iredale’s skincare line. They offer a variety of mineral foundations (powder and liquid) depending on what coverage you are looking for. Plus, their formula is actually GOOD for your skin. Imagine that? I currently use their tinted moisturizer with a light dusting of translucent powder and I’m very impressed. Other foundations I’ve used in the past have “caked” up leaving me with a total sloppy mess. I have yet to try Jane’s BB Cream, but I’m eager to do so. I’ve heard nothing but great reviews! I intend on purchasing it for those evenings I want a fuller coverage look.

Check it out!

My secret is that I use olive oil to “wash” my face. Every night. I never need moisturizer or blot sheets and only use a spf lotion in the morning. All I do is rub a pea sized amount of oil over my face and wipe off with a hot, wring-out, washcloth. Dewy, gorgeous and CHEAP! My grandmother and mother did the same, and none of have had breakouts… unless it’s my monthly, of course!

My best kept beauty secret … hmm, that’s a really hard one. Probably using a lip scrub and keeping my lips moisturized with a Burt’s Bees lip balm! I have full lips so they’re one of my greatest assets, and keeping them looking good is one of my “priorities,” I guess you could call it.

I got a sample of BB cream at Walgreens about a month ago and really liked it. It evened my skin tone beautifully. I’m 16 and I don’t wear makeup (my family isn’t big on makeup until about 16) except for the days when I decide to be spontaneous and wear some. One of my first favorite makeup combinations was BB cream, a green eye shadow, and mascara. I really liked how it played up my features.

Groomed eyebrows (and a lip wax) do wonders for me with my almost-black-brown hair and fair skin – brightens up my whole face. On that note too, the other biggest beauty secret I know is that it’s all about color – YOUR colors. I look great in cool colors, black, & white, and whatever is closest to your face is what gives you that whole “wash” over- so just popping on my pearl studs in the morning also brightens me right up. When I wear true blues and greens I always get compliments. πŸ™‚

My best kept beauty secret is a combination– steam and green tea! Placing a hot towel over your face (or standing over a sink of hot water) is a great way to open your pores and cleanse the face. I also drink green tea quite often. It has antioxidants that help clear blemishes and give your skin a nice glow. Rubbing a tea bag on your face never hurts, either.

I traveled with some friends a couple times way back when and they used to make fun of me for ‘maintenancing’ myself. Their grown children now ask me what I’ve done all these years to keep my skin looking young. I’ve used DHC Deep Cleansing Oil for eons and the Paula Begoun Resist line for the last couple years. And the Revlon BB Cream is awesome! I ran out and bought some as soon as I read a very favorable review from PBegoun and have loved it ever since!

My best kept beauty secret: don’t stress. Stress is so hard on skin and can prematurely age you. Hard for any makeup to look good, if your face looks stressed.

Eyeliner is my go to makeup secret. Every time I go out in public not wearing any without a doubt someone asks me if I am tired (in most cases I am not tired I just don’t have on eyeliner). Let’s just say I try not to leave the house without!

My #1 beauty secret is to SMILE! An older friend used to always say, “When you’re smiling, nobody sees the laugh lines”, and let’s face it, when there’s joy in your eyes and a smile on your face, you will look beautiful, no matter your skin tone or hairstyle or age. πŸ™‚ P.S.

p.s. Since having my baby girl 2 years ago, my new (forced) beauty secret has been to become comfortable going out in public with no makeup on.

My best beauty secret is to not use a crap load of products. A basic cleanser, then apply a thin layer of honey and rinse, then apply coconut oil as a moisturizer. No need for fancy products. Same goes for hair: a good conditioning rinse (skip the shampoo), and a very, very, very small amount of coconut oil to control the frizzes.

I agree will everyone about the water, but my beauty “secret” is about eyebrows. They can make such a difference on a face. I like fuller ones, not too over tweezed, and filled in with powder or pencil. I recently had mine threaded, and I found it to be much more gentle and prettier than waxing or tweezing.

My best beauty secret for the summer time is using Ocean Potion Lotion!

No matter what skin tone you have, use this after being out in the sun and it will replenish the moisture in your skin. The best part is that it comes in a HUGE bottle, so you can use it ALL OVER and it will last awhile!!

It also is amazing when it comes to keeping your skin from peeling if you didn’t get to reapply sun screen as often as you would have liked.

Love it!!

My best kept secret is to cover up brown spots. I put a fairly heavy coverage of concealer on the spots and don’t blend. Just make sure to “color in the lines”. Then when I put on my mineral foundation with a brush, it buffs and blends the concealer in and no more brown spots without having to carefully stipple the concealer in. This gives better coverage than any other method I’ve tried.

I have very blue eyes and light skin, so it’s important that I lighten up the dark spots on my face and dark circles under my eyes. Highlighter and/or light shimmery eye shadow always does the trick for me!

Even if I go out completely fresh-faced, I always take time to darken and shape my eyebrows a bit. They’re very light and often practically disappear into my face – so just that one step frames my face and makes me look more expressive and put-together!

I love the old school cold cream to remove eye makeup. Although sort of greasy, its gentle and removes all eye makeup, and not just part of it. When traveling or in a hurry, I reach for the eye makeup removing disposable pads. Love it! So much better for your eyes to take it all off at night!

What a fun giveaway! My legs are extremely prone to razor burn, so I wash my legs with my body pouf FIRST which exfoliates and lifts the leg hair. Then I shave using sensitive fragrance-free shaving gel and a MEN’s razor – life changer! The mens’ razors are so much sharper and have stronger, thinner blades.

Contrary to popular belief, it’s not good to wash your hair everyday since it strips the hair of its natural oils. Therefore, I don’t wash it everyday. I also tame the flyaways with organic coconut oil. πŸ™‚

Once or twice a week I like to exfoliate my face and lips. I mix 1 T. sugar with 1/2 T. (or a little more) olive oil and apply this to my face and lips and then gently rub it in circular motions to exfoliate. I remove it with warm water and a rag. My skin feels so smooth after this treatment, and foundation goes on really well. : )

I used to suffer from acne often since junior high, and I recently developed dull skin and dark circles in college. I then guessed my pimples were due to genetics and stress. Unfortunately, I can’t change my DNA, so I focused on meditation, practiced in worrying less, distracted myself from negative memories, listened to relaxing music before I sleep, etc. I’m still progressing, but my face is clear enough so I don’t need to apply concealer to my entire face!

Ever since I turned 19 (many moons ago), I have had flawed skin. I became very meticulous with my skin care routine. I did everything the way you were supposed to do it, yet for years and years, still would have dry patches right next to very oily spots. Both areas would break out. I have always been a “Product Bouncer” as something would only work for about 6 months and then I would have to move on to the next thing. I read on some website that it’s possible to wash your face too much! I only did it the recommended 2 times a day so didn’t feel that was my issue. To the end of my wits one day I decided to do a little experiment…my skin couldn’t get much worse after all! So I cut out the morning wash and I am telling you…it worked! I still get the typical once a month hormonal symptoms, but it worked! I would NEVER have advocated that in the past…and not sure that I would now, but that is MY beauty secret!
