I was actually surprised to see that so many of you wanted to see this, but like with foundation, the texture of the product has a lot of impact on how best to apply it. My technique is actually a bit different than how I apply foundation so here's a step-by-step look at how I prefer applying BB Cream.
Skin 79 VIP Gold Triple Functions BB Cream (use code FRMHEADTOTOE for 5% off!)
NARS Concealer in Custard
Tarte Smooth Operator Powder
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed
Lipstick is Urban Decay Naked
J. Crew bateau tee (similar/similar)
Nailpolish is Urban Outfitters polish in Hangover (similar/similar)
So for those of you new to "bb cream", they are Asia's answer to an all-in-one tinted moisturizer.
They give a natural coverage while giving additional benefits like sun protection, anti-aging properties, evening skin discoloration, and help to heal blemishes and unbalanced skin. I do have an overview review and post of several different kinds which you can check out here.
I show you the entire process in the video, but I'll break down my process into a few easy steps:
1. Dot all over face
2. Blend into skin
3. Add extra dots where more coverage is needed
4. Pat into selected areas to get more coverage
5. Add concealer if needed
6. Set with powder if needed
I also added some of my favorite natural blush, Tarte Exposed, as well as a bit of Urban Decay Naked lipstick to get the final face that is fresh, glowy, and perfect for everyday.
I hope this was helpful for those of you who wanted some extra-precise direction in applying BB Cream. I do want to mention as a disclaimer that there really is no "right way" when it comes to makeup and to experiment with brushes, fingers, sponges, etc. to see what works best for you! For me, the ease of using no primer, brushes, or even setting powders most days makes bb creams a great everyday face makeup winner. :)
