Summer weather requires slight adjustments to our beauty routine. In the winter, it’s all about the perfect moisturizers, full coverage foundation, slight bronzing, and red lips. However, Summer brings warmer weather, sun exposure, and natural tans. Meaning, that heavy winter look isn’t exactly going to stand a chance in 80 degree weather. It also requires skin protection against different environmental elements.
For these reasons, I recently started to incorporate BB (beauty balm) and CC (color correcting) creams into my beauty routine once Spring hits. They are lighter formula foundations that often have SPF infused into them. Their sheerness makes the makeup breathable and last longer in the warmer months. Plenty include anti-aging properties, skincare elements, and flawless finishes.
If this is something you’re looking for, keep reading as I share the top 5 BB and CC creams currently on the market.
