When skincare meets makeup, it’s a beautiful thing. Skincare products that moonlight as foundation give your skin the best of both worlds- sheer to moderate coverage and ingredients that improve its condition and appearance.
Serum Foundation is lightweight and perfect for those looking for a product with a barely there feel. Serum foundations not only cover imperfections, but they also deliver the skincare benefits of a serum. They contain anti-aging and brightening ingredients that address wrinkles and hyper-pigmentation.
Tinted Moisturizer is exactly as it sounds – a moisturizer with a hint of pigment. Tinted moisturizers come in different shades and provide sheer to medium coverage. Sheer tinted moisturizers are thinner, while more opaque tinted moisturizers are creamy. Although they usually don’t contain any anti-aging ingredients or SPF, they are super-hydrating and provide a nice coverage to help even out skin tone.
BB Cream (beauty balm or blemish balm) is the ultimate multitasker that performs like several products: moisturizer, sunscreen, primer, anti-aging skin treatment, concealer and foundation. BB cream tends to be a bit thicker than tinted moisturizers and contains more pigment for light to moderate coverage. This all-in-one product is perfect for those looking to get more out of a single beauty product.
CC Cream (color correcting or complexion corrector) is multi-functional, like a BB cream. While BB creams include anti-aging ingredients for prevention and maintenance, CC creams focus on addressing skin issues like blotchiness, redness, and hyper-pigmentation. They are typically lighter than BB creams and provide more coverage.
Choosing the right product to streamline your beauty routine depends on what your needs are. Knowing specifically what you want to accomplish, whether its treat, tone, protect or hydrate, will guide you in selecting the right product and level of coverage.
