Do you need to set CC cream with powder?
So, no, you don’t need to set BB cream with a powder: In fact, most BB creams contain priming agents in the formula, says Dempsey, so powder isn’t totally necessary in terms of long-wear. “The cream is likely effective enough to keep your makeup in place,” she notes.
Should you moisturize before CC cream?
Complete your normal skin care routine, cleansing, and moisturizing first. Then, apply your CC cream. Just like BB cream, CC cream is a liquid product, so you can also use a makeup blender to apply it.
Can you put powder over cream?
You can use powder formulas on top of liquids and creams to set them in place — but try to avoid using liquids and creams over powder. Using powder on top of liquid or cream formulas is A-OK — but make sure you let the liquid set first and blot away excess product before you go in with powder, says Barose.
Why does my CC cream look cakey?
One of the biggest reasons foundation looks cakey? The color is too light or too dark—so it’s even more obvious that you’re wearing it. To pick the perfect shade of foundation, look for one that literally disappears into your skin.
Do you put concealer on before or after CC cream?
If you use a cream-based foundation or a BB or CC cream, apply your foundation first and your concealer second. Why? Foundation is meant to even out skin tone and reduce the appearance of blemishes and discoloration. Until it’s applied, it’s tough to tell how much concealer you need to lighten and brighten.

Can you use concealer with CC cream?
CC cream is ideal for getting a “no-makeup” makeup look, or when you just want to conceal uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, or a rogue blemish. You can also swap CC cream in for your regular foundation (and possibly even your concealer) when it comes to everyday wear, especially if the formula has added sunscreen.
