BB cream or foundation, which one to choose? Are they even different things? Yes. Similar but still very different. Read on to find the best choice for your needs.
What Is a Foundation?
You probably already know what a foundation is, but it never hurts to repeat, right? Foundation is a basic type of makeup. Its main purposes are to create an even complexion and cover flaws. It is often also used as a base layer for additional makeup such as contour powders, blushes and other popular beautifying makeup products. It comes in various forms: liquids, powders or creams.
What Is a BB Cream?
BB in BB Cream stands for beauty balm or blemish balm. To put it simple: it is a basic type of makeup that also offers additional skin care such as hydration or protection. Such is also our pride and passion, BYROKKOâ€™s BB Cream, for example.
BB creams and foundations have some similarities â€“ but also some differences. Foundations are typically designed for maximum coverage, while BB creams are somewhat lighter. When you need an extra flawless look, foundation is typically a more popular choice. When you want a lighter flawless look with added benefits such as skin care, BB creams are usually the better choice.
Can BB Cream Serve as Foundation?
BB cream is a multi-purpose makeup product. And yes, one of these purposes is also providing coverage â€“ just as foundation does. If you prefer using BB creams instead of foundations, you certainly can. You might sacrifice some coverage power doing this, but you will also gain a lot. Premium skin care to keep your face healthy and happy for years to come.
The choice is yours, as always. But donâ€™t forget that you can alternate between using both your favorite BB cream and foundation, depending on the occasion.
