BB, CC – what’s the difference?



Hey guys this is Jessi and this is my first beauty tip of the day! Have you ever wondered what the heck is the difference between BB and CC cream?? No worries! Because I’ve had that same question in my head. For starters, BB cream stands for beauty balm cream. It usually works as a primer, meaning it should be the first thing you apply on your face (after applying face cream of course). You will want to wear it under your makeup as a makeup primer, so it can leave your skin feeling hydrated throughout the day. It also helps your makeup stay on longer and not look so cakey. This BB Primer I use is amazing! It’s so light and moisturizing it helps nourish my skin. Plus it comes in one universal shade so it fits all skin tones! It also works for when you’re on the run and don’t have time to go through your regular makeup routine, applying some BB cream and loose powder always saves the day for me! It helps even out my complexion and also when I want a slightly more coverage without the heavy feeling of foundation. One of the great things about BB creams is that it leaves your skin feeling silky and soft without making your face look oily or shiny. My BB cream is the one makeup product that never fails me! It is my life saver when I wake up late in the mornings for school or work. So, if you’re barely staring to use makeup or don’t know what to get, I recommend you get BB cream first. Trust me, after you try BB cream you will say good bye to foundations! Because I have!


CC cream stands for color correcting cream. This is going to give you coverage, even out your skin tone, and help conceal imperfections on your skin. I love it because many CC creams contain vitamin C and E, which helps protect your skin from sunspots and have younger looking skin. I like to apply CC cream after applying BB cream, together they work miracles and it’s a great duo!


I’m sorry for not uploading a video.. ;u; No worries because I’m investing on a camera so soon there will be videos and tutorials! For the mean time I will do reviews, recommendations and, beauty tips! I hope this was helpful~~!!! Have a wonderful day my beauties~~ ^_~

This is the finish look on my face! The only thing I applied was the BB and CC cream along with loose powder. I ended the look with a red gradient lip tint! (I will later make a post on how to apply lip tint) ^_^ I, of course had some cat eyeliner on and mascara^^


Lets create something beautiful^^
