5 Different ways to use BB cream
1. BB cream as Eye primer
You know girls, why we use eye primer or eye shadow primer. This is because they will make the eye shadow last longer. These eye primer can make the powder eye shadow last really longer. Apart from that eye primer will also even tone the eyelids and gives a base for the eye makeup. They also prevent the creasing of eye shadow, so now, with so many benefits of eye primer. You will want to use them, right. But this BB cream can be used as eye primer as well.
How to apply BB cream as eye primer: Take some just a very tiny dot on your ring finger and apply that on the eyelids. Blend it nicely so that you can get even toned eyelids. Now you are ready to do your eye makeup.
2. BB cream as Face primer
You can apply BB cream as a face primer. A face primer fills the pores and fine lines. So that, when we apply the foundation. Our skin appears smoother and a lot better looking. Face primers will also make the makeup last long.
How to use BB cream as face primer: Just take a small blob of the BB cream. Then dot that all over the face and on the area like forehead, nose etc where your skin has pores or fine lines. Then blend this either with your fingers or a foundation brush to buff that in. Now wait for a couple of seconds. Then use your foundation. You will get more coverage and flawless skin as well.
3. BB cream as under eye concealer
Under eye concealers can make the eyes look brighter. Eye concealers also hide the darkness under the eyes. So, wont that be good if you don’t have to buy separate concealer for the under eyes. And you can use your BB cream as a concealer. That will be wonderful right? But I will still recommend that if you have very darkness under the eyes then use corrector first then concealer. That is a different topic that I will write a new post on.
How to use BB cream as under eye concealer: Take small drop of BB cream on the ring finger. Then apply that under the eyes and blend that with a brush or with your finger. Now, use some loose powder or compact with a brush in a dabbing/pressing methods. This step makes sure that the concealers don’t crease when we make eye movements.
4. BB cream as Foundation
Those of you girls, who are lucky to have good skin or have only few blemishes then you can try BB creams as the foundation. Take some on your brush and applying all over the face and neck. This will gives a nice coverage if you will apply a second layer on the face. Only on the area that has some blemishes.
5. BB cream as Highlighter
You know girls, we can use highlighters to make the face more contoured and give dimension. So for that you can try sing BB cream as highlighters. You will have to mix some powder gold or shimmer eye shadow then mix in the BB cream. Now apply this on the forehead with a flat top foundation brush. Use some on the cheekbones and chin. This needs to be done for the night time or party makeup to get a glowing skin. I have used a highlighter on my cheeks as you can see ion the picture below.
So girls, now you can use your BB cream for so many other things. Right? 🙂
