Many people are troubled: cushions are so lightweight that will let the makeup melt down, but liquid foundations are so heavy that bring uncomfortable feelings, even cause closed comedones when wearing makeup for a long time. So, how about BB creams? This kind of new base makeup product is designed for concealing, evening out skin tone, sun protection, and etc., and is dedicated to offering a natural-looking base finish. The versatile BB creams can meet multiple makeup needs, and become a must-have for modern women.
How to pick a superior BB cream? First, let’s check out the ingredients. Its formula shouldn’t contain any irritating ingredients like fragrance or preservatives to avoid damages. Plus, if you have special skincare needs, you can see whether there are corresponding ingredients and amount. For example, some BB creams contain ceramide and collagen for moisturizing, very suitable in dry winters. Secondly, you need to know its bendability. BB creams with good extensibility are easier to apply and absorbed. And for those with weak bendability, you need to apply a little bit harder, which will not only bring much burden on the skin, but also will cause waste. Some BB creams also feature sun protection. For people who usually stay outside for a long time, BB creams with SPF30 PA+++ or higher are ideal choices. Additionally, if you are prone to sweating, water-resistant BB creams are more suitable for you.
