  1. Use a moisturizer

    Start by applying an initial base of moisturizer. This keeps dry and normal skin hydrated. Skip this step if you have oily skin.

  2. Match it to your skin tone

    If the cream does not match your skin tone, mix it with a few drops of foundation before applying.

  3. Conceal skin imperfections

    Dot the cream on blemishes and scars. Use it to cover dark circles around the eyes. Blend it in with your fingertips. Let the cream set.

  4. Apply the cream

    Apply the cream to the rest of your face. Blend well with your fingers to create an even, natural look. Allow the cream to dry. A small amount of cream provides adequate coverage for a casual day.

  5. Apply powder

    Finish by applying powder. This sets the cream. Setting with powder makes the cream long-wearing.

  6. Experiment with different creams

    BB creams are available in matte finish, with color added and colorless variations. Try out different products to find the one that works best for your skin.
