  1. i like this look! so natural & great for spring! phyllis, do you have any tips for getting a dewy skin finish? when i apply sunscreen, i can’t seem to apply bb cream smoothly…how can i fix this?

  2. Thanks for answering Phyllis! Yup, when i used it, i get these balls of residue forming…& it’s a pain in the butt to try to remove. I guess this means i need to either use a diff bb cream or sunscreen?

  3. This is such a gorgeous look! I wish I could do the au naturale look as great as these models. The look is perfection!
