OOTD and The Best BB Cream EVER!


Please ignore my smirky grin and that it looks like I was either A. trying to do a Michael Jackson crotch grab  or B. fondling myself. I promise that neither of these choices occurred.
 What I wore:



Being that I work in the skincare industry and also that I am a makeup artist, I have tried just about every BB cream out there. Most of the BB creams available here in America have been well, Americanized and have little similarities to the traditional BB creams that are used in East and Southeast Asia. Traditional BB creams not only have anti-inflammatory properties, but also moisturizer, primer, foundation, and sun block; making these BB's the ultimate multitasker. 



Jane Iredale blew me away with this new 



This is not a sponsored endorsement. I just had to share this fabulous product with you all because it is THAT GOOD. My skin instantly looks better after applying this and I no longer need foundation when using this magic in a tube. Get this; it is water resistant for up to 40 minutes! Here are the deets on my beloved BB:

  1. Blemish balm cream is awesome - but I 100% agree that most American brands are just crapping out on a good formula for it. Thank you for sharing this one from Jane Iredale!

  6. Oh, I NEED to try the Jane Iredale BB cream. I've been using the Boscia BB cream and I love it, but now my face is acting like a rebellious teenager. THAT, I don't love.

    P.S. Shasta - do you EVER have a bad fashion day?! ;) You always look so fun and sassy!

  7. I could not find a single BB cream about 6 months ago that wasn't orange on me. I even put a call out on my facebook asking people and tried the ones they claimed no dice. I went to a korean store and got one and its the most amazing thing ever. When it runs out it will be hard to track down again so if I can find something semi local... will check this out.
