You must be trying to achieve super duper coverage...This product is made to be used alone with maybe a concealer...If I were you, I would first of course cleanse, then moisturize, then prime then either BB cream OR foundation, and you choose whether you want to use concealer before or after either bb or foundation, YOU don't need BOTH honey...lol

I'm actually surprised at some of the responses to the question. Some people seem to think that you are getting all these great benefits that makes this something that should be the first layer. BB cream has some added benefits, but it really doesn't do much for you at all when compared to other skin care routines (which it sound like you are following). Most people you BB cream for two purposes, either as their only form of makeup, so it just gives a sheer coverage, or as a base for foundation, which allows for better overall coverage. Regardless of whether or not foundation is used, I highly recommend using a primer with it. I always use the smash box primer with this. You can use the primer, the BB cream, and then follow with foundation.
When it comes down to it all, however, there really is no "right way." Even professional makeup artists say different things about the order makeup should be applied. I just have found that primer before BB is particularly helpful for me.

Using a primer is optional with this and it sure doesnt hurt - I sometimes use with a primer since the one I use has healthy skin stuff in it (like vit c and more sunscreen), and gives my skin a tad more moisture so that my bb cream goes on a lot smoother.
SO I guess it depends on your primer - since I know there are ones that are beneficial - that give oil control and/or are anti-aging.

dont use with primer! apply serum, moisturizer wait a few moments and finally apply the bb cream.

You should use this as your last skin care step, you can use a primer underneath.
I use Korres Quercetin and Oak AntiAging Primer before the BB cream and it works well.

I know a couple of you are really getting on my case about using anything else with the BB cream. The problem is that, while I love the BB cream, all of them are so very light in color. They don't make any for darker skintones, so unless I want to look washed-out all day, I have to use a foundation, or bronzer over the BB cream.
The point of a BB cream is that its a moisturizer, foundation, concealer, primer all in one. So it doesn't make sense to use a BB cream and put foundation over it. And if you even put a primer under the BB cream, then foundation over it, what's the point of the BB cream? Why are you using it?
I would treat the BB cream like a normal foundation and apply the primer first-- even though the formula is supposed to be better for your skin than other products, you want to prevent it from getting into your pores and causing breakouts or other problems.

Wow you use a lot of junk on your face. Um... this is supposed to be a tinted moisturizer... can't you just use this and then some powder?
