Tip of the Day: Changing your BB Cream

For those of you who never tried BB Cream because of the limited skin tone colors available, there are ways around it.

A little background: The reason why BB Cream comes in limited colors is because of its origin and where it is popular today. BB Cream was developed in Germany and then became highly popular throughout Asia, where skin tones are fairly light for the most part. BB Cream is supposed to oxidize to match any skin tone perfectly, if not closely.

For darker skin tones, BB Cream probably won't oxidize to that point of matching the skin tone perfectly and may leave a gray cast, but no worries!

There are several ways to fix this:

  1. You can mix your BB cream with a tinted moisturizer or liquid foundation that is your skin tone, just enough to tint the cream.

  2. Set your BB Cream with a powder that is your skin color

  3. Use bronzer over your face after you apply the BB Cream


So go ahead and try BB Cream! If you don't want to shell out so much money at first, buy cheap samples from Ebay so you can try this technique before you commit to a full size.

Good luck & Stay Maganda! <3
