I will start this off by saying that I had NEVER used any sort of foundation in my life. All I typically used was a little concealer here and there when I’d get breakouts. I was looking to venture further into the makeup land and give this a try. So, instead of shelling out the big bucks for high-end products, I figured I would try out the process first with something cheaper. I am very happy with the results! I purchased Elf’s BB cream in the lightest color I could find (retails for around $6.00) and NYC’s powder in the color translucent (retails for around $3.00.) I am pleased with my results!

You really don’t need to much of the BB cream to use for your whole face. Just about a pea size is enough for me! I then use a small dab of the powder and apply over top of the BB cream and let it set before applying the rest of my makeup.

Here’s how it looks before any additional makeup is applied. Gives a fresh look.
Viola! Finished product with all other makeup applied as well.


I do like these products and feel I’ve got the hang out this process. However, I do notice my skin broke out a little in a few places after using it for a few days straight, so I have to apply my acne medication before applying a face full of this, or else the breakouts return. I have sensitive skin, so it’s not really surprising. This is a good solution for now, but in the future I’ll be looking for some natural products that hopefully won’t cause any unnecessary breakouts 🙂

  1. I recently purchased Physician’s Formula CC Cream. I know they have BB cream as well! Physician’s Formula is a mineral wear- maybe that would help with acne! I have sensitive skin too, so I’m always trying new products. I think I’ve ultimately decided to stick with the mineral wear type brands.
