Our Edit Of The Best BB and CC Creams For This Year

Best BB and CC Creams | Space NK
Your makeup base is the foundation (no pun intended) to a good makeup day, and while we really rate our foundations and concealers, sometimes it’s nice to switch it up and go for something lighter. If you’re a fan of the no-makeup makeup look, you might lean towards skincare-makeup hybrids like BB creams and CC. They’re easy to apply, offer decent coverage and feel light on your skin.

BB Cream vs CC Cream: What’s The Difference?

BB cream stands for “beauty balm” and is a cross between foundation and tinted moisturiser. Containing ingredients such as niacinamide, BB creams enhance your skin over time while offering sheer coverage. CC cream stands for “colour correct” and helps to disguise redness and dark spots. It can be worn on its own or layered under foundation for a full coverage look. Read on for the BB creams and CC creams we’d recommend.
