The popularity of BB Cream has gone completely immense since the early 2000s. Being a multifunctional makeup product, it can be used as a foundation, concealer, and even a mixing agent for color makeup such as blusher. In this article, we’ll share how you can achieve a beautiful natural makeup look with BB Cream and Blush only.
Choosing the Right Type of BB Cream
As BB Creams are considered makeup and skincare in one, each features different types of ingredients suitable for a certain skin type. When choosing a BB Cream, you have to consider your skin type carefully. Besides, there are BB Creams that come in limited shades since others are formulated to adapt to the wearer’s skin color. Look for ingredients that can help you out with your skin concerns. For instance, green tea extract for dry skin and tea tree oil for oily/sensitive skin. Additionally, BB Creams offer different consistencies that usually affect the coverage and finish of the product.
Mixing BB Cream and Blush
Celebrity makeup artist and director of artistry for Ardency Inn, James Vincent says: "Add your favorite blush to the cheeks before you apply foundation for a glow that looks like it's coming from beneath the skin. A bright, warm pink at the apple is perfect for any complexion."
Another beauty hack to try out is to mix your BB cream with your blusher. If you are using a mineral powder blush, it’ll be much easier to do. The result would be similar to what celebrity makeup artist James Vincent suggested – a glow from beneath the skin. Use a ratio that would make the blusher creamy, or else it will turn out to be cakey.
Dab and Go!
Amanda Bell, an international makeup artist for Pixi says: “Every blusher shade will either be contrasting or complimentary against your skin tone.” This is why you must pick the right shade that suits your complexion. To prevent you from overdoing your blush, use gentle dabbing motions with either a makeup brush or sponge to create a natural finish.Liquid error (templates/article line 10): Could not find asset snippets/relatedblogs.liquid
