Difference Between A CC Cream And A BB Cream

If you are a beginner, then you might have always heard of different BB And CC creams. If you like light makeup but do not have time, patience and skill to create a base foundation look then these creams can be used directly to create a perfect base look. Though both the creams are used to create a light makeup base for flawless looking skin, but do you know the basic difference between these two. Well here are some basic points for you to remember while purchasing one next time.

CC Cream

  • A CC cream is basically a color corrector cream which basically hides all the flaws of skin like dark circles, blemishes, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, open pores and so on. It creates a light foundation layer while hiding all the flaws.
  • They are lighter than BB creams and therefore are a better option for oily skin.
  • It also has anti ageing properties, so if you are someone who is looking to hide the imperfections but at the same time you want to work on those imperfections then CC cream is for you.
  • If you are pro at makeup and are creating different layers of makeup then you can use it before foundation to achieve a flawless and color correct base for makeup.
  • It generally comes in matte finish and therefore is a great option for those who do not want an unwanted sheen on face.

BB Cream

  • BB cream basically stands for beauty balm which provides hydration, nourishment and protection to skin. So basically it acts as a multipurpose all in one cream which can be used as a substitute for a moisturizer, primer and foundation all in one go.
  • BB cream is comparatively heavy than a CC cream but lighter than a foundation.
  • It is a multi purpose cream which moisturizes and hydrates skin and leaves the skin glowing and smooth.
  • It is a great option for dry skin because of its heavy texture.
