BB creams, CC creams, and tinted moisturizers

With so many foundation alternatives how do you decide which one to use? Which one is the best one for your skin? What’s the difference between BB creams, CC creams and Tinted Moisturizers? 

Here’s the Guide:

Tinted Moisturizer- Moisturizer with a hint color

A Tinted Moisturizer contains moisturizer and a bit of foundation. It is great for people with dry skin that want a little bit of color to even their skin tone. If your only skin issue is dry skin, this is great for you.

BB Creams –a Beauty Balm thats main purpose is to even out skin tone

A BB Cream contains moisturizer, primer, some level of SPF and foundation. The color is light and the formula is also lightweight. Great to wear outdoors since it feels great on the skin.

CC Creams- Color Correction Cream

A CC Cream has everything that a BB cream has, but also includes a color correcting ingredient to brighten the skin or to get rid of redness. A common brightening ingredient is Vitamin C. CC creams also have a little more coverage than a BB creams and is a better option for people with uneven skin tones or acne. If you want minimal coverage this is great for you.


CC Creams are the most popular foundation Alternatives. 

Maybelline and IT Cosmetics have some of the highest rated CC creams.

Tinted moisturizers are the easiest to make. Just mix your favorite moisturizer and foundation together. Make sure that they have the same base (oil , not oil ect.; so they blend together).
