Still trying to grasp the concept of BB creams (short for beauty or blemish creams)? Fear not, we'll help you lovely dames and gents out. BB Creams are essentially uber moisturizers that cover like a sheer foundation and treat various skin-care concerns such as acne, dark spots or wrinkles. It's the dream product for those who loath foundations but still want coverage. Since BBs are designed to be multitaskers, finding the best one requires prioritizing: and mon petites we have found the one that does it all! Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35 ,$39 is like a tinted moisturizer on steroids. In addition to it's hydrating and evening out skin tones,Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream also treats the skin with antioxidants and other anti-aging ingredients, plus offers broad-spectrum SPF. Add  NARS Blush in Seduction , $29  that gives cheeks a natural, sexy flush you will be a thing of legend with this berry hued product of highly pigmented wonder! Be sure to finish the look with haute lips thanks to Yves Saint Laurent ROUGE PUR COUTURE Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain ,$34 and you will turn heads in no time!
