Q: After setting my BB cushion, my face tends to look cakey. How can I avoid this? – Sarah Ann, Petaling Jaya
A: If your skin tends to look dry and cakey, it could be due to the cushion not being moisturising enough or the hydration level of your skin. One trick is to start with a slightly-damp puff before pressing and twisting it in the compact to achieve a dewy finish. Then, instead of dusting and setting the powder all over your face, chose to only pat it on areas that are more prone to oiliness, such as the sides of your nose, T-zone, and sometimes, along the temples up on the hairline.
