BB Crème How To

Welcome to the glow up!

Now our BB Crème isn’t your usual BB, it's very unique and it isn’t designed with coverage in mind. It works similar to a filter and creates a blurring effect to even out your skin tone and give your skin a beautiful radiant glow. The luminous pearls reflect away from your skin and glow differently in all different lighting.

It’s a versatile product and it can be worn in many different ways depending on your desired look. 

Let’s talk SPF, Skin type and the most important APPLICATION! 

SPF

We always recommend wearing an SPF to protect your skin from harmful UV rays and antiaging of course! You can apply our BB crème on top of any SPF of your choice. Please note for SPF to be effective you will need to wear at least 30+.


Our BB is designed for day time and night time wear. If you are wearing a product with SPF in it at night-time and a photograph is taken with a flash it can produce a white cast over your face, so we wanted to eliminate this.

We have left you the choice to wear whichever brand and level of SPF protection you wish underneath.

Skin type

This is very important to take note of when it comes to applying our BB crème

Dry Skin – We recommend if you have dry skin to apply your face lotions or SPF before applying our BB. This will ensure that the BB glides on and eliminates the chances of the blurring pigments grouping on the surface of any dry spots.

Oily skin – If you have oily skin you won’t be required to apply any lotions or products beforehand, our product does not have oil in it so it won’t add oils to your skin, you can also set it with a little bit of translucent powder in your T section or area that produces the most amount of oil.

Normal / Combination skin – You can wear the BB crème with or without any prior hydration to the face. However, if you do have a dry area, we recommend applying a lotion prior.

 

Basic 101 - How to apply our BB crème:

Our formula is super lightweight and silky to touch, it feels like you’re wearing nothing on your skin!


Step 1 – The crème is very luminous and rich with pigments which means once blended onto the skin you don’t want to keep working it around the face or apply more than two layers to the skin to avoid lifting pigment away from certain areas once set.

Step 2 – Apply half a pump of BB crème onto our Laneway Beauty blending brush.

Step 3 – Using the brush tap the product around the face so that each area has an even amount on it.

Step 4 – Start by gliding the product around the face until it is spread evenly and is sitting on the skin.

Step 5 – Use tapping and swiping motions to blend the crème into the skin to make sure that it is all blended correctly.

Step 6 – Ensure that you’re also blending the product on your ears and down your neck so that you’re all blended and don’t have any lines or differences in colour.
