Bye-Bye Foundation, Hello Tinted BB Creams
While they can provide great coverage, thick liquid foundations can cake on and end up sliding around your face once you set foot outside. Swing by every beauty maven’s favorite store, Sephora, to check out easy ways to make the switch from your favorite long-lasting foundation to a lighter, more warm-weather friendly BB cream or tinted moisturizer like tarte‘s BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer. As a bonus, many BB creams offer a broad spectrum SPF, which is necessary year-round, but crucial during those hot summer months. Designed to help diffuse light and minimize skin imperfections, BB creams help give you that glow you love, minus the slip and slide look of a heavier foundation. Plus, matte finish options keep your skin from looking like a summer oil slick. Get the best foundation for summer and refresh your summer makeup bag while you save with Ebates!
