We live in a fast-moving world and nobody has the time to spend hours blending your foundation. However, makeup is an important aspect of the lives of most women. At this point, CC cream comes to your rescue.
What Does A CC Cream Do?
CC or ‘Colour Control’ cream is a makeup product that can replace a foundation or a primer. This product feels light on the skin as compared to other products and can help to hide imperfections of the skin including redness, blemishes, signs of ageing, hyperpigmentation and many more. Along with this, it can also help to protect the skin from sun damage.
Can We Use Sunscreen Daily?
CC cream is perfect for daily usage as it is lightweight. Thus, you won’t have to worry about your pores getting clogged. This skin-friendly product should be your first choice if you are looking for something that can be used daily.
What Is The Best Way To Apply CC Cream?
One question that arises in everyone’s mind is how to apply CC cream? Well, it is quite easy to apply CC cream. You just need your fingers or a makeup brush and you are good. Read on for a step by step guide to applying CC cream properly.
Prep Your Skin
You might have questions in your mind about whether you should directly apply CC cream or the face or you should apply a moisturiser before applying CC cream. Well, we have answers to all your queries.
You should always apply CC cream on a clean face. Start by washing your face with water. Use a good cleanser to wash your face, then pat your skin dry. Also, apply toner with a cotton ball if you have dry skin. After, moisturise your skin to hydrate it.
Apply CC Cream
Take out a small amount of CC cream on your palms. Take some on your finger and put small dots of the product on your face. Make sure that you cover all your face including your nose, chin, forehead, cheeks, upper lips and neck. You can put an extra dot on the areas that require special attention like blemishes, under-eye or the sides of your nose.
Blend It Well
Once you have applied the CC cream to your face, you need to spread it evenly all over your face for even skin tone. It is up to you how you would like to spread the product. Some people like to use a brush while others like to use their fingers. Both of these ways are correct. You just have to pat the product on your skin rather than rubbing it which can irritate you. Also, you can sweep a makeup brush across your skin to blend the cream outward.
However, you need to make sure of a thing. If you are using your fingers to blend, then they need to be clean. Wash them before you touch your face in order to stay protected from germs and bacteria. On the other hand, if you are using a makeup brush, then make sure that you clean it weekly.
Add More Cream To Problem Areas (Optional)
If you feel that your skin is not even-toned even after applying CC cream and want to hide your blemishes to a greater extent, then you need to add some more product to the problem areas such as your dark circles. Blend it well with the rest of the cream so that you have even and smooth skin.
Also, it is recommended to add more product instead of using a lot of product the first time itself.

Use A Makeup Brush
Once you have applied the CC cream and have spread it all over your skin, then you should use a makeup brush to buff your skin. This will ensure that the product is evenly distributed all over your skin. After this, make small circular motions with the brush. Start with your forehead and work your way down.
