All about Foundations, BB Cream & CC Cream

Hello Lovelies ❤

The right knowledge of "Foundation ,BB cream & CC cream" is very important.

Today we gonna talk about FOUNDATIONS and their substitutes, i.e. All about Foundations, BB Cream & CC Cream

Choosing the right foundation is always tricky, as, on one hand, it is the shot to completely enhance your look, but on the other hand can just make you look drastic.

If it is not the right one for you then it can make you look cakey and when the weather is hot, choosing the right foundation becomes even more difficult as, at that time, you would have to go for the one with water-resistant capability, in order to cooperate with the sweat.

So, let’s get started and understand what can be right or what might go wrong for you.

Different types of foundation available:

  • Liquid Foundation
    • Liquid Foundations are the most popular type of Foundations available in the market. Even they are among the most older ones. Liquid foundations work well for dry skin and provide the heaviest coverage and can be used for hydrating dry skin.
    • Before applying the foundation, do shake the bottle well to avoid any separation. This type of foundation can be applied with a brush, sponge or even with your finger.
  • Stick Foundation
    • Stick Foundation is the best for blemishes and breakouts. It is easy to carry and has a thicker consistency, therefore it is very important to select the shade in these type of foundations correctly. These can also be used as concealer for larger areas. These give medium to heavy coverage and is good for non-oily skin.
  • Mousse Foundation
    • Mousse Foundation is also known as the whipped foundation and works well for normal to oily skin. It contains micro air bubble that makes it easy to apply on one hand and provides the coverage you desire on the other hand without being heavy on the skin.
  • Powder Foundation
    • Powder Foundation is among the most classic foundations available, easy to use and simplest to apply. It can easily be used for touch-ups also as they usually come in a handy compact form. These type of Foundation has a drier formula and is good for oily skin. These are lightweight and give a natural finish. This can be applied using a soft brush to give a light coverage.

Another options available

  • BB Cream
    • BB Cream is great for a broad range of skin types. It is a creamy formula that evens skin tone along with moisturising the skin.
    • It is also good for skin as compared to the heavy foundations. If you need something to even out you skin on a daily basis, then BB cream is the one as it has antioxidants and SPF to protect from the sun.
  • CC Cream
    • CC Cream is similar to BB Cream and provides a layer of coverage with a natural tint. These cream hydrates the skin and are good for ageing skin. CC Cream helps in providing a fresh look and bright look
