BB cream burst onto the makeup scene a few years ago but it wasn’t until recently that the cosmetic companies here started manufacturing them. They’ve fast become a preferred foundation and the reason is clear – it’s an all in one product. There are good ones but it takes a little work to find the right one for your skin type. Don’t waste another one of your precious beauty dollars, discover the best one for you.
How To Make BB Cream Work For You
If you do makeup on the run, or you want a foundation that you can put on quickly and skip the extra steps for layering your make up then this new foundation might be a good option.
What you need to know is there has been an evolution in this product and there’s not just one type of BB cream anymore. That’s a good thing. A wider selection means that if the first ones that came out didn’t do the job you now have more that might work.
The very first thing you need to determine about this new all in one foundation is if it will work for your skin’s particular needs fordaytime makeup looks.
Five Important Questions To Ask
The second thing you need to consider is what you want the product to do? Remember, not all BB cream foundations are alike. So ask yourself which of these you need:
1 – What level of pigment and shade is it?
2 – Is it sheer or does it provide good coverage?
3 – Does it contain moisturizer?
4 – Sunscreen in 15% or 30% strengths?
5 – How much face primer is in it?
A Closer Look At BB Creams
When bb cream first came out the shades were limited but now you can get everything from the lightest of shades to ones that work for black skin. The problem is that not all makeup brands offer the same shade range. The good news is that you can get a close foundation match without having to worry about being so exact. If matching has always been a problem for you then you might just have found the solution.
You’ve found a brand with your shade. Now what do you do? Determine how much how much pigment is in it. Some of these give sheer coverage and some give enough coverage to cover minor blemishes. If the coverage is too opaque bring back some color to your complexion with a stick bronzer. It depends on how much primer is in it and if it contains any moisturizer.
Check to see if the product is touting moisturizer on it’s front label. Do you need extra moisture or should you pass? If you choose one without a moisturizer and you need a foundation for dry skin then you’ll have to apply a separate moisturizer before your foundation. That makes it a two-step process.
How much sunscreen is in the product? If you prefer a foundation for oily skin and don’t need a lot of protection then 15% spf makeup will work. On the other hand if you’re looking for makeup for mature women then opt for a minimum of 30% spf.
Do you know how much face primer it contains? That’s a difficult question to find the answer to. The only way to know is to see how evenly it glides on. Does it feel a little too slippery? Does it take a long time to dry to a matte finish? The level of primer it contains can make or break the selection. Be careful and don’t go overboard.
Okay, you the ins and outs. It’s time to choose your product but before you do remember to use a good skin exfoliator. If you haven’t used a microdermabrasion kit or cloth then you’re missing out.
BB Cream might just be the product you’ve been waiting for. Select carefully, give it a test run and add it to your kit. Be sure to let me know which one are your favorites. Please, don’t skip on makeup removal at night either.
