How do you apply your BB Creams ? How should you apply your BB Creams ? In this article, we will be talking about the different ways to apply your BB Cream, and which will be the suitable one according to the BB Cream texture and your skin type.
The 3 most known ways to apply your BB Creams are as such : your fingers, a brush, and sponge.
- When to use fingers?
Most of us use our fingers to apply our BB Cream, after all they’re free and we need not spend any extra money! Using our fingers have advantages and disadvantages. BB Creams that are balmy are best applied with our fingers as the heat produced by our hands melts the BB Cream and makes it easier to apply on our skin. When using our fingers, we also tend to use the least amount of BB Cream. However the downside : they don’t give the smooth even coverage that a brush or sponge does.
There are two ways to apply Bb Creams using your fingers. The first is just spreading and rubbing it on your skin, and the second is using the 3 fingers ( 2nd,3rd 4th finger), dap them BB Creams, then lightly tap it your skin all over.
The first method is used for those who would like to have a better coverage, while the second is used to have more of a light sheer coverage.

- When to apply using sponge ?
According to korean make-up artist, sponge is the most suitable for those with oily skin. Before applying the BB Cream, spray the sponge with a facial mist to moisten it. Even though a sponge give you an even coverage, the sponge itself soaks a lot of the BB Cream, so the BB Cream is wasted.
