Obsession: BB & CC Creams

If you're like me, foundation isn't really a top priority. It looks great on some people, but personally it it makes me look a little fake. Maybe I just haven't found a perfect foundation yet? Regardless, if I'm going to wear any type of makeup base, BB and CC creams are the way to go.

In reality, BB and CC creams aren't really that different. 

BB creams usually include SPF, as well as antioxidants. They're lightweight, offer light coverage, and provide skin benefits the more you wear them. Think of them as really light foundation + sunscreen + serum. 

CC creams, on the other hand, are literally "color correcting" creams. They really work against redness and dark spots, and provided a bit more coverage than a BB cream. 

So there ya go. Pretty much tinted moisturizer on crack.

My favorite of all time is the Garnier Skinactive Miracle Skin Perfector. I've honestly been using this product since I was in high school. While it's changed a bit (considering I've used it since 2011), it still is the best BB cream I've come across. It's inexpensive and really blurs facial imperfections without looking like anything is on your face.

I want to see freckles. Always.

If you're going for BB cream with more coverage, the Camera Ready BB Cream from Smashbox is a good pick. I've used this product in the past and it's much closer to a foundation than any other BB / CC cream I've used.

I really want to try any of the IT Cosmetics CC creams. I've heard raving reviews from other bloggers and it's definitely on my list of things to pick up from Ultra in the future. Definitely have my eye on the Bronzing version and the Illuminating version (rather than the original).

Comment below if y'all have any BB and CC cream suggestions! Always down to branch out!
