Can You Put Bronzer Over BB Cream

5 Mins read

If you’re like me, you probably have a ton of questions about using different types of makeup.

For example, what if I want to put bronzer on my face after applying BB cream?

What if I want to use the same brush for both?

Is it okay to put tinted moisturizer on top of my BB cream instead of using a regular foundation?

These are all valid questions that I’ve been asked before and am happy to answer them here!

Is it okay to put bronzer over your BB cream?

If you’re wondering whether or not it’s okay to put bronzer over your BB cream, the answer is yes. It absolutely can be used as a base for foundation.

A lot of people don’t know this, but BB cream can actually be used as a foundation itself!

You can also use BB cream as a primer or concealer, as well as a moisturizer that works underneath your makeup (and even on its own).

You shouldn’t go overboard with this though.

If you were to use two full-coverage foundations back-to-back without doing anything else in between them, then yes—that would cause breakouts on your face because those products are very heavy and thick compared to regular makeup products which tend to breathe better than their counterparts (i.e., foundations).

But if all three layers are applied at once (BB Cream + Bronzer + Foundation), then there won’t be any problems since each product contains different ingredients that work well together while still giving off some great results!

Can you use the same brush for both?

While it’s possible to use the same brush for both, that might not be the best idea.

If you’re using a synthetic-bristle brush and it’s for both products, it can get gummed up with product residue.

This will make your bronzer look clumpy and leave streaks in your foundation or BB cream.

If you’re using an all-natural bristle brush, then it’s best to keep them separate since they have different needs.

For example, if you’re putting on liquid foundation after applying BB cream with a natural bristle makeup brush (which would soak up some of the liquid), then this could potentially ruin your bronzer if there are any spots where some liquid got on it while blending out your foundation into a flawless finish.

What if I want to wear bronzer on my cheeks and then go over it with a BB cream?

If you want to wear bronzer on your cheeks and then go over it with a BB cream, use one of the following:

  • A clean brush that is the right size for your face.
  • A clean brush that is the right shape for your face.
  • A clean brush that is the right density for your skin type.
  • A clean brush that is the right material for your skin (for example, if you have oily skin or sensitive skin).

How do I make sure that my bronzer doesn’t look weird when I put it on top of my BB cream?

The first thing you need to do is not use too much bronzer.

It’s tempting to pile on the bronzer so that your skin looks like a Kardashian, but it will look unnatural if you go overboard with it.

Use a light hand when applying the bronzer and sparingly apply it in areas where there is naturally darker pigmentation: your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, under your eyebrows, and along your jawline.

You’ll also want to make sure that you are using a brush that matches your skin tone as close as possible (if not exactly).

Do bronzers have to match your skin tone?

You can use a bronzer that is darker than your skin tone.

Just like blush, bronzer can be applied to areas of the face that are not quite as bright as your natural complexion.

It creates dimension and gives off a healthy glow.

If you have very pale or light skin, it’s best to avoid bronzers with orange undertones because they may look unnatural on your face.

Redness tends to show more in people with fair complexions, so if this happens to be the case for you then stick with cooler-toned bronzers instead—they’ll help combat any redness without making things worse!

If you have darker skin tones (think deeper than medium), there are plenty of options available on the market right now!

These days some brands even offer concealers specifically made for darker complexions which include pigments that match their own shade range.

When using these products I recommend applying them lightly so they don’t overpower what’s already been applied beneath them–you don’t want too much color going on at once!

Can you use a bronzer if you have acne?

If you have acne, it’s important to consider the type of acne you have.

If you have a lot of acne, then it’s probably better to use a tinted moisturizer instead of a bronzer because the pigment in the bronzer may clog pores and make things worse.

On the other hand, if your skin is only slightly oily or dry, then it should be okay for you to apply bronzer after applying BB cream.

Is it okay to use a tinted moisturizer over your BB cream instead of using a regular foundation?

The answer is yes, but there are a few things you should keep in mind.

A tinted moisturizer has a lighter coverage than foundation, so it won’t completely cover up the BB cream.

This will give you more of an even skin tone and help to conceal any dark spots or blemishes on your face.

A good tinted moisturizer will also have SPF protection built right into the formula, which is great because that means one less step for you!

Should I use a different brush when applying BB cream or bronzer?

Before you start applying any type of bronzer, it’s important to have the right tools on hand.

Using an incorrect brush can lead to an uneven application that looks unnatural, or even worse, streaky.

  • Use a brush that is not too big:

If your brush is too big, it will be difficult to cover all areas of your face at once and may cause streaks in your makeup.

Instead, select brushes with wider handles so that they are easier to grip and control while applying makeup.

  • Use a brush that is not too small:

On the other hand, using a large-sized powder brush can create excess product buildup on the skin’s surface without covering all areas at once.

This leads to wasted time spent trying to blend out excess bronzer or highlighter after applying foundation and concealer (since these products often require multiple layers).

Should I use an oil-free makeup remover or a cleansing water to remove the product from my face before going in with another layer of makeup?

Using an oil-free makeup remover is recommended.

You can also use a cleansing water or warm water and a cloth to remove the product from your face before going in with another layer of makeup.

No matter what method you choose, be sure to work it into a lather and massage it over your skin for 30 seconds before rinsing off completely.

How long does it take for the first layer of makeup to set before applying another layer of makeup on top of it?

This depends on the product.

If you’re using a liquid foundation, it should be dry before adding another layer, but if you’re using powder, it will likely blend better when applied over still-drying makeup.

Regardless of your choice of products, however, waiting until all layers have dried will help ensure that everything is set and ready for blending.

Final Thoughts

As you can see, there is a lot of information when it comes to putting on your foundation.

But don’t worry; if at any point you feel overwhelmed or confused by anything we’ve covered here, just remember that it’s okay!

And if something doesn’t work out for you in the end, just give it another try—you’ll eventually find what works best for your needs.

The most important thing is not giving up before trying everything out at least once so that you know exactly what works well with your skin type (and maybe even personality).
