Fakin' It.....A Flawless Complexion, That Is....
We all desire perfect skin.
And although most of us suffer from at least one, minor imperfection, we can still achieve the look of a flawless complexion.
Here's our list of irregularities
1. Large pores.
2. A few broken capillaries by the cheeks.
3. Dark, undereye circles.
We think we will stop there..ha ha.
So, how do we fix the bad skin stuff?
By FAKIN' It!
That's where primers and the trendy new BB creams come in. Think of both as a sort of beauty spackle---each designed to smooth away imperfections and give the skin an even glow and balance.
The beauty of a primer is its perfection at filling in fine lines and pores for a flawless finish BEFORE foundation application. Some women like to wear primer alone, and skip the foundation. But most primer fans love to create as smooth a complexion as they can, so that the next layer, that of foundation, glides over easily.
Try NYC Smooth Skin Perfecting Primer ($3.99, 1 oz., at drugstores).
BB cream stands for beauty balm or blemish balm. And it's big across Asia, and has been for a number of years now. Korean women, especially, will not leave home without their BB cream.
BB cream has now made its way into our American beauty market. Think of it as a tinted moisturizer with better coverage, an spf, a skin tone balancer, and a dewy glow.
Even drugstore brand Garnier quickly developed a BB cream called, Miracle Skin Perfector.
If your looking for a flawless complexion, try either a primer or BB cream, and you will be amazed at the radiance your face takes on.
