Summer time is quickly approaching and many people are switching from the heavy foundations to a more lightweight coverage. At first, we only had tinted moisturizers; but now with BB and CC creams, the selection gets ever more confusing! So how do you know what’s best for you?
Unlike foundations, BB and CC creams are like tinted moisturizers on steroids! They offer much more coverage than tinted moisturizers and they’re actually better for your skin. Depending on the type, the creams will moisturize, create an even skin tone, reduce redness and reduce dullness — giving the appearance of natural, glowing healthy skin. Not only are they good for your skin but they make getting ready a breeze as it combines serum, moisturizer, sunscreen, primer, foundation, concealer and powder. It’s the perfect solution for quick, easy and flawless makeup.
How do you know which is best for you? There are two available from Avon.
