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, BYROKKO’s BB Cream, for example.
BB creams and foundations have some similarities – 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 – 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 don’t forget that you can alternate between using both your favorite BB cream and foundation, depending on the occasion.
