We are both picky about the products we use, especially on our faces, but we can both wholeheartedly recommend the BB Cream from Shine Cosmetics! Not only does it give you an even skin tone, it also protects your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. The BB Cream has light, buildable coverage that drys to a velvety-matte finish. It can also double as a base layer on your eyelids to keep your eyeshadow lasting all day!
