BB cream for the Texas summer heat

I live in Austin, and in the summer it is always somewhere around 100 degrees if not hotter. I have normal skin with zero breakouts , but I like a little something to even it all out. I read that BB cream is good for heat because it works well with sweat. My question is, is BB cream enough on its own to substitute for a lightweight foundation for the summer. I was thinking of going with Smashbox, but I need to make  sure its not too heavy. Help! I makeup in this heat is such a challenge!

Hi Dqladyface.  I think BB Cream would be a great option for you.  Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35 gives the coverage of a light-med foundation but feels light on your skin like a tinted moisturizer. You also might want to try Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray which uses Temperature Control Technology to lower the temperature of your makeup so it won't melt away in the heat.

Im also currently stuck in daily 100+ heat and I use Smashbox BB cream.  I couldnt be happier with it, it holds up well all day even when Im outside a lot and doesnt feel greasy or make my skin break out.  The other thing I like about it is that its SPF 35 which is great for people who are fair skinned.
