If you want a flawless complexion fast, we say fake it with makeup. We still stand by our skincare routines, but the results take time! On the other hand, complexion-perfecting cosmetics make everything look prettier in just a few minutes.
So you can imagine how pleased we were last week when Pink Sugar sent over their complete collections of It’s Awesome BB Cream and Dual Finish Face Powder. We could not wait to get shade-matched!
According to our friends at Pink Sugar, both products can be used solo, depending on the amount of coverage you want. But together, they deliver a flawless effect marked by two things: smooth, color-correcting coverage and long-lasting wear.

SHADE-MATCHING TIME!

With the help of 18 girls at the BeautyMNL office, we mixed and matched the 4 shades of BB Cream and 5 shades of powder to customize the best color for everybody’s skin tones.
STEP 1: We each started with a bare face, over which we applied a layer of the BB Cream. A tube of It’s Awesome BB Cream contains green tea extracts, aloe vera, and antioxidants, so it actually improves your skin over time.
STEP 2: After the BB Cream set, we buffed the Dual Finish Face Powder over it for shine control, staying power, and minor color corrections.
