How to apply Glow Time BB Cream

Posted by with No Comments

Our most frequently asked question about Glow Time BB Cream is, how do you apply it? Today we will tackle that question and learn three ways to apply Glow Time to get different coverage results, but first here’s a little more information for those of you who don’t know what Glow Time BB Cream is.

Glow Time

Glow Time is jane iredale’s highest coverage foundation. It also provides Broad Spectrum SPF 25 protection that is water resistant for up to 40 minutes. This is the highest SPF rating of all our foundations.  Glow Time is available in 6 shades and is full of natural extracts that help cover blemishes, minimizes pores, disguises wrinkles and smooths and brightens skin. It is also non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic, sensitivity tested, clinically tested, dermatologist tested- so you can wear this with full confidence. Here is some more info on those hero ingredients and what they do:

  • Grapefruit Extract promotes luminosity and skin radiance, minimizes appearance of pores and wrinkles, and may help to fade uneven pigmentation.
  • Apple Extract is a skin-smoothing antioxidant that exfoliates, refines and rejuvenates the skin.
  • Sunflower Seed Oil is rich in moisturizing vitamin E.
  • Aloe Leaf Juice soothes and calms the skin.
         That’s great, but how do I apply it?

There are a number of ways you can apply Glow Time BB Cream, but here are the top three favorites categorized by the amount of coverage.

1. Full Coverage

  • Start by priming and moisturizing your skin using Smooth Affair Facial Primer.
  • Squeeze a pea size amount of Glow Time BB Cream onto your pointer fingertip.
  • Using your three middle fingers from each hand, gently rub your fingertips together so that the BB Cream is spread evenly on all six fingers.
  • Now, begin gently tapping your fingertips all over your face. (If you still feel lost at this point take a look at the video below of Jenna using this technique at the :18 mark.)



2. Medium Coverage

Hydration Spray

  • Start by priming and moisturizing your skin using Smooth Affair Facial Primer.
  • Spritz your Flocked Sponge 2-3 times with your favorite Hydration Spray.
  • Apply a pea size amount of Glow Time BB Cream on the spritzed area of the Flocked Sponge.
  • Gently apply to your face using the sponge in gentle downward motions and blend well. Don’t forget your jawline and neck!
  • If you still need a little extra coverage in some areas, gently pat the sponge over them.


3. Sheer-Medium Coverage

  • Apply 1/2 a pea size amount of Smooth Affair Facial Primer to your pointer fingertip.
  • Apply 1/2 a pea size amount of Glow Time BB Cream to the same finger tip.
  • Smear your fingertips together and gently rub on your face. You will still get all the benefits of both Smooth Affair and Glow Time but with a finish that is more similar to a Tinted Moisturizer.



Glow Time can also be used as a concealer by applying a little extra to any area that needs more coverage because of how pigmented this foundation is. The finish of Glow Time is very luminous, so if you have oily prone skin or prefer a more matte look you may choose to apply a thin layer of PureMatte Finish Powder.

The best part about makeup, is that there aren’t really any “rules”! So celebrate your creative freedom and try different application techniques until you find the one that works best for you. Then please come back and share because we love to hear what you’ve discovered!
