Another Day, Another BB Cream

Orlane-BB-Cream-SFP25-Anti-As BB Creams continue to be all the rage among others now using the alphabet in their titles, I’m slowly warming up to them, the more I try. One moving to the top of the list is ORLANE BB Crème SPF 25 Anti-Fatigue Absolute Sunscreen ($70/1oz @

I am kind of shallow when testing these. I mean, the main thing I look for is the sun protection and if the tinted color these come in is off or takes forever to adjust/sink in.

Since this one comes in one universal shade, I was skeptical, of course, but this one seems to not only adjust to my tone rather quickly but it really evens out the tone nicely.

Since this is called an Anti-Fatigue product, it also helps protect against the aging process by treating wrinkles and sun spots. An added bonus but then again, this is a BB Crème, so I would expect nothing less.

Spring Makeup Helper Must Haves

Spring-Basic-Makeup-Must-HavesWhat are your go-to products for highlighting or un-highlighting areas on the face or helping it last throughout the day/night? Here are some I’ve been using and love.

To Make Eyes Pop - PIXI BEAUTY Extra Eye Bright Liner ($17 @ – this super thin waterproof liner is meant to be worn on the water line or inner rim of the bottom lid. The pale white/pink/lavender color really brightens up any eye look.

To Highlight - ESTEE LAUDER Bronze Goddess Illuminating Powder Gelée in Heatwave ($40 @ -  highlight your cheeks, under the brows and even the décolletage with this new one from their Bronze Goddess Collection. Gorg.

My Go-To BB Cream - TARTE BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen ($34/1oz @ – sunscreen (check), longevity (check), slight tint (check), nourishing ingredients (check). Available in 4 shades.

Banish Under-eye Circles - ORLANE Highlight Care Brush ($40 @ – I’d put this one up against this cult favorite any day! If you’re going to rock the Spring look, dark circles and rough under eyes won’t cut it. Get your glow on with this one.

Hold On Eye Shadow - SENNA COSMETICS Totally Transforming Eyeshadow Primer ($24 @ – there’s nothing worse than your eye shadow sliding off your lids from the heat, so this season, vow to wear an eye shadow primer every time. This one contains antioxidants and peptides and available in three shades.
