The newest wave of beauty product for daily coverage today are BB and CC creams. These new formulas are one of the biggest trends in the beauty department. It’s basically a different version of tinted moisturizers with multiple added skin care benefits. “Non-Touring” is the newest makeup trend to make your skin look perfect and dewy and a BB cream is the perfect way to start your non-touring.

BB (short for beauty balm) creams are having a serious moment this Summer season. BB creams are your all-in-one product because it’s a combination of primer, SPF, anti-aging ingredients and they offer light to medium coverage creating flawless canvas.

CC (short for color corrective) creams consist of skin-brightening primer, moisturizer, sunscreen, light foundation, anti-aging ingredients and some of them even contain collagen boosters. Although CC cream are much lighter than BB creams, in my opinion, CC cream are better choice for those who have acne-prone skin.

The reason why I prefer the BB cream over CC for my self is because it tends to be a bit heavier on skin which provides more coverage. No it doesn’t cover up skin’s imperfections as well as using a proper foundation, but I still love to wear it. I use a concealer underneath over my dark circles or zits if I get any. Additionally, it hydrates the skin, it’s a non-brightening primer, evens out the skin tone, controls shine, protects from environmental stress, promotes skin regeneration, reduces appearance of imperfections, anti-aging, moisturizer, sunscreen, oil free, and paraben free. A real multi-tasker I tell ya!

So, if you’re still using heavy coverage foundation from Fall, Winter and Spring you may want to consider switching to the next- generation skin care products, a BB or CC cream. It’s the perfect skin care coverage for an everyday day coverage such as going to a gym, shopping, parents house, picking up kids from school, meeting with girlfriends, summer vacation and etc…

Here are my three current favorite BB creams not only it blends perfectly with my skin but it’s very affordable too.

1. Aveeno Active Naturals BB Cream with SPF 30. 

2 .e.l.f BB Cream Broad Spectrum with SPF 20 ( Cheapest bb cream I’ve used but it bends in perfectly with my skin complexion.)

3. Guerlain Super Aqua SPF 25 Serum NN Hydra ( it’s a bit expensive but it’s worth it)

Q: How to apply BB cream?
A: I don’t think there’s a special way to apply BB cream. Some use their fingertips and some beauty sponges. I personally prefer to use  BB cream with a beauty blender sponge. I feel like a sponge provides a flawless finish.
