Working from home has made me extremely lazy when it comes to make-up. Since I don't have to leave the house every day and I know I'm not going to be seeing people and having to worry about how I look, my make-up routine has really fallen to the wayside.
I also discovered after two kids and just dealing with life every day, I don't have the time I used to for make-up, hair, the works! Who does, really?
I was kind of excited to try out L'Oréal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream because it promised to be good for my skin and it looked easy to apply. Easy, quick, not much work--this sounds like it's right up my alley!
I have to admit, when I first saw the cream, I was a little surprised. I'm very fair-skinned, but this stuff was definitely a lot fairer than me! I really didn't know if it would blend.
I took this photo just after applying the cream. This is the cream in "Fair."
After applying it, smoothing it out and waiting a few minutes, I immediately saw a difference. It blended in nicely and matched my skintone quite well. My skin has a habit of looking a little ruddy. I have red undertones and freckles and this seemed to smooth it and make it look natural.
Since trying it the first time a few weeks ago, I've made it a habit to use it almost daily. It makes me feel better to have something on my face before I run out just to pick up kids from school. At least then if I run into other parents, I don't feel totally bare! To be honest, I am in love with this BB Cream. I've never used any other BB Creams, so I have nothing to compare it with, but this stuff is fantastic as far as I'm concerned. I can see this as a part of my make up routine for a the foreseeable future!
L'Oréal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream gives you good coverage without heavy make up. You can finish it off with some powder, or just go as is. You could also use it as a primer.
