What is BB cream and how do you use it? BB cream is short for ‘blemish balm’ cream. It’s a versatile combination of products such as moisturizer, primer, SPF, foundation, skin treatment, and concealer. It was originally developed in Germany as an all-in-1 cream to be used by patient’s post-laser treatment for protection, coverage, and hydration.
Do you put foundation on before BB cream? “BB Cream should be treated the same as foundation,” says Patinkin. “Apply it first, and then touch up where you need to with concealer.” For instance, if you’re dealing with dark under-eye circles, discoloration around the nose, or blemishes, those concerns might poke through a lightweight BB cream.
Do you put BB cream on your whole face? Place a dollop of BB cream about the size of a dime on the back of your hand. Then, using your fingertips, dab the cream evenly on your face. If your BB cream is thicker, you can use a foundation brush to apply it, then lightly apply a damp beauty blender to remove excess cream.
