There are so many different make-up products out there that it can all get a little bit confusing, especially if you aren’t a make-up artist! You might have settled on a foundation only to hear that BB creams are the latest rage. You want to try a BB cream, but you are embarrassed to ask what exactly a BB cream is.
Should it replace your foundation? Should it replace your moisturizer? Should you wear it alone? Well sit back and relax and let’s set the record straight.
What Is Foundation?
Foundations are a liquid or cream based make-up that usually provides full coverage and acts as the perfect base for your concealer and powder, which are applied on top of your foundation.
Foundation is applied over moisturizer and is great for a full make-up look if you are doing full eye-makeup or if you have a problem skin and want more coverage.
What Is BB Cream?
BB Creams are a combination of moisturizer, primer and foundation all in one and usually contain vitamins and minerals to give your skin a healthy glow as well as to improve your skin with regular use.
BB creams are generally thinner in consistency than foundation and do not provide as much coverage as foundation although certain brands provide more coverage than others. BB creams are perfect to provide a healthy glow and just enough coverage to give you that “no makeup look.”
If you have a good skin that doesn’t need much coverage or you don’t like the heavy feel of foundations then BB Creams are the perfect alternative. They will perk your skin up and are quick and easy to apply, you can literally be out the door in five minutes flat!
You can apply it alone or over a moisturizer, but if you do apply over moisturizer make sure that your moisturizer is fully absorbed before applying your BB Cream. A fantastic BB Cream that contains only natural products is La Mav Organic BB Crème.
Our Organic BB Crème contains vitamin C and rosehip oil, which provides anti-aging benefits as well as sunscreen to protect your skin against the harmful UVA and UVB rays. With its special skin tone-adapting formula you are guaranteed the perfect colour every time. Your skin will glow with natural luminosity and no one will even know you are wearing makeup!
You can apply BB creams alone or add concealer for extra coverage. Set it with a mattifying powder like the Mattifying powder from La Mavfor all day wear.
These are the main differences between foundations and BB creams. I hope this made things easier for you next time you are in the drugstore! Leave any comments or questions you have in the comments below!
