Makeup can be a jungle to wrap your head around!
In this series we are looking closely at the different types of makeup products.
Today our focus is all on CC Cream.
If you want to, you can also watch this series on my YouTube Channel.
WHAT IS A CC CREAM & WHAT DOES IT DO?
The CC in a CC cream stands for Colour Correcting.
A CC Cream is in general meant to fight against pigmentation or redness in the skin.
It acts a bit like a mix of a concealer, primer and foundation, but it also has moisturizing properties.
WHAT TYPES EXISTS?
Like with BB cream, CC cream does not really have any types. They do specialize in different benefits though, and some of these could be:
- Specially made CC cream for every skin type
- Sun protection
- Hydration and moisturization
- Brings down redness and pigmentation
- Full coverage
- Medium Coverage
- Sheer coverage
DO I NEED IT & WHEN SHOULD I USE IT?
As with the BB-Cream and other All-In-One treatments, they can be a bit “too much” on the skin because the product is not specialized enough.
Though a CC-cream might do “too many” things, there are definitely some benefits when buying a cream like this.
- You can use it whenever you are in a rush and do not have time to do your whole makeup and skincare routine.
- It is travel friendly, and you don’t have to bring a humongous makeup bag every time you go somewhere.
- If your skin needs a break from heavy makeup, you can use this instead as a “no makeup – makeup look”
- You just don’t want to put on a whole face of makeup, because that’s not you? CC cream is an easy way to go.
A CC Cream is used as the first thing in your makeup routine. Applying moisturizer with a CC cream works just like with a BB cream.
In general, if you have dry skin, you might want to use a normal moisturizer and then your CC cream, but since the CC cream is often made to have the effects of a moisturizer too, you might not have to.
If there is some type of makeup you would like explained, tell me in the comments and we will get to it.
I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time!
