How and when to use your BB Cream?

As it is for CC Cream, you can use your fingers to apply BB Cream all over your face.

It might seem to be the easiest option since it simply melts with the heat of your skin, but doing so might not be the best way to make the most of your BB Cream. Using a sponge or a makeup blender could help you obtain an even smoother result. Not only is it more hygienic, but it can also help you get the perfect complexion, without knowing any specific technique the hands-on-approach might require.

In any case, spread your BB Cream toward your neck and hairline. Even though BB Cream may offer a much lighter coverage than a foundation, it is important to avoid any harsh lines.

BB cream can be used on a daily basis and could become the best time-saver in your morning routine! Both care and makeup, it protects your skin, conceals blemishes and mattifies complexion, all in one touch!

Can I combine CC Cream and BB Cream?

BB Cream or CC Cream can be enough on their own but they can also be combined in order to make your complexion even better. If after applying your CC Cream you still feel like you need an even smoother matte finish, you can layer your BB Cream on top.
