What is BB Cream?

BB stands for “Blemish Balm” and it is formulated to even out skin tone and correct blemishes. BB Cream is also known to have moisturising and sunscreen properties to moisturise and protect your skin from UV damage at the same time. For coverage, they can range anywhere from a barely-there tint to medium coverage. The only downside with BB Cream is that they usually comes in only 2 to 3 shades - Light, Medium and Dark.

What is Foundation?

Foundation is a classic makeup product that is the top choice amongst makeup artists if they want to create a flawless canvas with high coverage. Compared to BB Cream, foundation is thicker in consistency and it comes with a wide range of shades catering to all different skin tones.

So Which One Is Better For Me?

We are living in the golden age of makeup, so there is definitely a BB Cream or foundation for every skin type and catering to different skincare concerns. The bottom line is, find something that works for you!
