Unlike traditional mascaras, which are made from a water base, waterproof formulas are created from a mixture of oils, which makes them less likely to smear and give you those notorious raccoon eyes.

BB creams (short for beauty or blemish creams) are like tinted moisturizers packed with antioxidants, anti-aging ingredients, plus offer broad-spectrum SPF. They help to hydrate your skin while evening out skin tones.
Great BB Crème’s: Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35 for fair to medium complexions; IMAN Skintone evener BB Crème SPF 15 for deeper complexions.
