Sometimes when finding the right makeup to use, it can feel like you’re lost in a sea of alphabet creams. Chances are you’ve heard of BB, CC, and/or DD cream, but you might not know the difference between the three.
For starters, all of the creams are foundations and promise ample coverage. When it comes to comparing BB, CC, and DD creams, they all offer coverage plus something extra.
BB cream is coverage plus SPF, CC cream is coverage plus color correction, and DD cream is coverage plus anti-aging.
