The Types of Skin Types BB Cream Complements
Even though everyone can use BB cream, women with truly oily skin shouldn’t use it, as it can be too rich for them. When your skin begins to overproduce oil, it combines with the BB cream and gives off an appearance as if the cream is melting off your face.
Before settling on a BB cream, read reviews on the different creams out there. Even then, you may need to try a few BB creams by different beauty brands before you find one that suits you. Once you find a BB cream that complements your skin type, you can conceal blemishes and imperfections and give the illusion of flawless skin.
The trick to making BB cream last you the entire day is to use primer.
How to Apply BB Cream on Your Face?
We are going to tell you how to get a full coverage finish, medium coverage finish, and sheer medium coverage finish using BB cream.
Full Coverage Finish
You need to begin by priming and moisturizing your face using a moisturizer. Next, you need to squeeze a small amount of BB cream on the tip of your pointer finger. Use three middle fingers from each of your hand to rub your fingertips together. This will spread the BB cream evenly on all your fingers and then gently to your fingertips on your entire face.
Medium Coverage Finish
You need to begin by priming and moisturizing your face with a primer and brightener. Spray the hydration spray two to three times on your flocked sponge. Squeeze out a small amount of BB cream on the same area on the flocked sponge where you sprayed the hydration spray.
Use the flocked sponge to apply the BB cream on your entire face, including your neck and jawline, using downward motions and blend well. If you require additional coverage in certain areas on your face, you can pat the flocked sponge on those areas.
Sheer Medium Coverage Finish
You need to begin by squeezing 1/2 amount of primer and brightener on your pointer fingertip. Next, you need to apply a 1/2 amount of BB cream on the same pointer fingertip you squeezed the primer and brightener. Put your fingertips together and apply it on your entire face. This will allow you to get a finish that looks like a tinted moisturizer.
If you don’t want to go out wearing foundation every day on your face, you can wear BB cream on your face before you go out.
