Do you have to set bb cream?

Are you still unsure about whether or not to set your BB cream? Well, lucky for you, we are here to answer all your questions and put an end to this debate once and for all! In this article, we will delve into the world of BB creams and tackle topics such as proper application techniques, setting options, and even some quirky facts about these magical products!

What is a BB Cream?

Before diving deep into whether or not BB cream needs to be set on the skin, let’s first understand what exactly a BB cream is. BB stands for blemish balm or beauty balm – essentially it’s a multitasking product that moisturizes, provides sun protection (SPF), conceals imperfections like acne scars and age spots while evening out skin tone.

In other words: It’s amazeballs!

BB creams have become incredibly popular in recent years due to their promise of flawless-looking skin without heavy coverage. With different variations ranging from tinted moisturizers with SPF 30+ sun protection up to full coverage foundations pigmented enough to hide tattoos – there is something available for almost everyone!

However when using one product that does everything well- people may wonder if they need extra steps beyond applying sunscreen underneath the bb cream.

Heading two: The Social Media Rumors

You might’ve heard some rumors on social media platforms recently going around stating that if you don’t set your bb cream properly under hot summer weather outdoors then there’d be chances that:

  • Your makeup would melt off;
  • It could cause breakouts;
  • [Huge emphasis here:] Act as a magnet attracting dust particles- Urgh gross!

But should you believe everything on social media? Read below before being deceived by urban myths.

Should You Set Your BB Cream?

The short answer isn’t as simple nor straightforward because ultimately it boils down to personal preference and the formula of your BB cream.

However, we do have some tips and tricks that might help you in deciding whether or not you should set your beloved BB cream.

Heading two: Thickness is all Important

The first thing to consider when choosing between setting options is how thick or thin the consistency of your product is. If you’re using a thicker BB cream with fuller coverage, it’s likely that setting it will extend its power for longer periods by preventing things like perspiration from disrupting the look throughout the day.

On the other hand, if your BB cream has a lighter texture more akin to tinted moisturizer like korean/Japanese variety (priority ingredient- spf), skipping over setting powders altogether may be okay as they leave no cast behind especially when one dreams about glass skin pop levels[k-beauty terminology refers -skin so smooth & luminous just like glass].

Not sure which camp yours falls into? Test out different products before committing! A good hack is experimenting with a few dabs across prominent facial areas — example cheeks beside nose bridge atop (another term above; beneath eyes) undereye circle region – blending them thoroughly then waiting ten minutes to observe adaptability since everyone’s unique needs are different.”

How Should You Apply Setting Powder?

Heading Two: Dusting or Pressing-The Rules:

There are two primary methods – dusting & pressing:

Dusting involves taking loose powder onto fluffy brush tapping off excess amount on top of lid/any flat surface (to avoid clumps). Lightly patting brushed head onto face creating whatever finish (shimmer/matte)- making sure distributed evenly inhale loudly while doing this 😉

Pressing is another method that some prefer. They apply a small amount of loose powder under the eyes, specifically beside the nose creating right angle triangle then using damp sponge (beauty blender used here as this brand will be most familiar to our audience; add note incase want me include other names). This creates an instantly smoother surface without any form of movement (instead dabbing technique).

This seems simple enough but did you know both methods have their own unique advantages? By dusting on setting powders, one can create translucent finishes/shimmer with minimal skin contact – perfect for those with delicate eye areas prone to wrinkles.

On the other hand pressing/setting powders helps by minimizing creasing in the undereye region caused by heavy highlighting concealers which gives off matte-finish when full-face foundation is preferred rather than spot touch up so choose whichever satsiify your makeup needs!

Heading Two: Other Mini Tips

If you’re still confused about how to best set your BB cream or are looking for more tips- below few last things come handy while getting ready

  • Use a setting spray as final step- mist lightly each part face (& hair if desire) 6in away from surfaces to avoid clumping/slightly wet look.
  • [Ctrl+D] Don’t forget certain brands intentionally omit “talcs,” i.e., mineral salts present powder – and DO NOT use silica either cause they end up causing flashback issues when taking photographs flash-gun.

Now it’s time to slay all day gurl!

Wrapping It Up

To sum it all up, whether or not you should set your BB cream ultimately depends on a few different factors including consistency, personal preference & humidity etc. But no matter what you decide There’s no single answer because everyone has unique preferences relative but gave some ideas/options above! Just remember – nobody knows what works best for themselves until trying multiple options out.

For those still on the fence, just remember BB creams aren’t the most effortless products out there so it’s okay sometimes to skip a few steps or they may even require added enhancing measures either via setting powders and facial sprays. Take your time, experiment & have fun with these – this world-class makeup game has no rules!
