BB cream is essentially a make-up product, which is mixed with liquid foundation. Therefore, you must use professional makeup remover to remove makeup after use to avoid causing a series of skin problems. In strong sunlight, a layer of sunscreen is required before the BB cream to effectively resist UV rays. Because the color number of the BB cream is few or even no, and the overall makeup effect is white, the darker skin of the BB cream is easy to look thick and unnatural, so it is recommended to choose a white cream and repair cream. However, many products on the market are two-in-one functions of BB cream and repairing milk, avoiding some defects.

When I shoud use BB cream instead of foundation?
BB cream and liquid foundation are commonly used makeup base products for girls. What are the differences between these two makeup products with similar effects? When are they more applicable?
Generally speaking, we can distinguish these two products from the comparison of the following three aspects.
- The difference in powder consistency
When using bb cream, it usually takes just a few taps with your hands to evenly spread it. The liquid foundation is a professional base concealer. Compared with bb cream, its powder will be thicker. So when we use liquid foundation, we usually use a foundation brush, or push it with our fingers a few times to apply evenly. Because of this, the effect of bb cream is slightly worse than that of liquid foundation in terms of concealment.
- The difference in moisturizing
Although the bb cream and liquid foundation will have a moisturizing feeling when they are just rubbed on the face, the liquid foundation will dry out over time, and makeup may be needed after a few hours. The bb cream will have a long-lasting moisturizing effect after application, and the water will feel moisturized all day.
- The difference in the effect
Although both products have the function of balancing skin tone, the effect of bb cream is more focused on improving dark yellow skin and brightening skin tone, the effect of repairing the face is slightly inferior, and the durability is insufficient. However, after using the liquid foundation, it can often make the skin look fairer and more delicate, and the effect of repairing the face obviously lasts longer.
So in comparison, BB cream is actually more suitable for daily nude makeup products. If you want to make a more delicate makeup, you must use liquid foundation to achieve the effect.
