I don't normally wear make up, when I do I just use bare minerals powder, a lipgloss and mascara. I want to even out my skin a bit, hide the marks from recent spots. I'm quite pale but get red across my cheeks. I would like something simple as I'm not confident applying it. I was thinking about a bb cream after reading about them on here but I can't get to any shops to find the right shade for me (although I read there's only a few colours as they naturally tend to match you?). Also wondering about adding a concealer over spots, can you do that under a bb cream?
You would do concealer over BB cream. Use the BB cream to even out your skintone if that's an issue, then put concealer on any marks/blemishes/old blemishes. If you're having trouble finding a BB cream that suits, there are great tinted moisturisers which will have similar coverage but possibly come in more shades.
