We’ve been telling you that BB creams are an absolute must-have since ages, and now we’re going to tell you just why. We give you a few fab ways to use your BB cream that will ensure you never leave home without it!
A great pick is the Pond’s BB cream, an all-in-one instant solution. So, read on for all the different ways you didn’t know you could use it.
1. As A Light Foundation
It’s too hot to layer on the foundation; summer is all about light makeup and a good BB cream is amazing for this. Dot it on and blend well with a brush or your finger tips to give you sheer coverage for your dark circles, spots and fine lines.
2. As A Primer
If you still want to use some foundation for a warm summer’s night, ensure it doesn’t slide off when you sweat by applying primer first. A light layer of BB cream acts as a good primer to keep the rest of your makeup in place no matter how high the temperatures soar.
3. As A Highlighter
A great BB cream will illuminate your skin and give you a gorgeous glow. You can also add a bit of shimmer powder or a dash of gold eye-shadow to your BB cream and mix. Apply it along your cheekbones, brow bones and down the bridge of your nose to light up your face and accentuate your features.
4. As A Moisturizer
Most BB creams come with plenty of hydrating properties to ensure that your skin stays moisturized ALL the time, even if you’re using it for coverage.
5. As An SPF
A good BB cream like Pond’s BB cream
has a high SPF to cover all your sun protection needs all summer long, minus the greasiness of a regular sunscreen.
6. To Make A Cream Blusher
Using a spatula or even a spoon, scrape off a bit of a lipstick and mix it well with your BB cream on the back of your hand to make your own cream blush. Dab it on to the apples of your cheeks for a blush that is moisturizing as well.
7. To Correct A Makeup Emergency
Smudged lipstick? Don’t worry, simply wipe it off the skin where your lip colour has smudges and dab on your BB cream on the area to get rid of that tinge of colour it left behind. Did you apply too much blush? Don’t worry, you don’t need to bring out your makeup remover and ruin the rest of your makeup. Just add a thin layer of BB cream onto the apples of your cheeks and blend to diffuse the excess blush.
