The “BB” in BB Cream stands for “Beauty Balm.” Similar to tinted moisturizers, BB Creams provide light coverage, but are packed with various good-for-you ingredients.
Our BB Cream All-In-One Skin Perfecting Beauty Balm SPF 21 multitasks to the max! Its creamy yet lightweight formula combines six skin-perfecting products in one tube: moisturizer, broad spectrum SPF, water-resistant foundation, anti-aging complex, antioxidant protection and complexion brightener. Antioxidants work to protect skin from environmental damage while the optical brighteners instantly diffuse light and diminish the appearance of fine lines and blemishes. Licorice Root brightens and helps even out skin tone over time.
CC Cream, also known as Color Correcting Cream, is similar to a BB cream in that it protects your skin and helps to fight aging, but it is also corrective and combats discoloration such as redness, dullness or dark spots.
Our CC Crème Compact Color Correcting Swirl Foundation SPF 25 Foundation with Sponge perfects while it protects! Its weightless and ultra-creamy formula covers with a color-correcting peach swirl to even out the complexion of the skin, helps to prevent lines and wrinkles, and conceal sun spots.

One in every three women refuses to leave her home before putting on makeup. In the workplace, a quarter of women fear that a lack of makeup directly results in the loss of a promotion. In actuality, it is what you wear underneath the makeup that can give your look that special glow.
Perhaps you are preparing for a fast paced day at work and you are looking for that chic and professional tone, or you have a fun filled night on the town planned and you need a dazzling look that will make your features pop. Either way, powder foundations and makeup primers are must haves for your professional makeup supplies kit.
The function of quality foundation is to balance your skin tone while reducing the appearance of minor scars and blemishes. As a base, this provides the ideal environment for makeup to be applied seamlessly and in a way that is a natural fit for your skin. Compared to both cream and liquid foundations, a power foundation is likely the ideal match for you if your skin tends to be oily.
Makeup primer is another product that functions in much the same way as foundation, with a lightweight yet durable quality. Available in a variety of shades and hues, you will undoubtedly be able to find the primer that best suits you.
If you have questions or comments about professional makeup supplies, or suggestions about foundations and primers in particular, you can share them in the section below.

Did you know that makeup has been used for thousands of years? The Ancient Egyptians are known to have used anti-wrinkle creams made from frankincense, wax, moringa oil, and cyprus mixed with plant juice. Since that time, different types of makeup have been developed, too. One-third of women say they will not leave their house unless they have applied their makeup. If you are one of the many women who are looking for tips on how to apply mascara for volume, or other professional makeup tips, here are the top three.
Are you looking for a way to accentuate your cheek bones so that you can have that chiseled look you have always wanted? Try using a highlighting powder in conjunction with a bronzer. Take your best bronzer makeup that is two shades darker than your skin and apply it to your cheeks. You will lose the roundness and gain sharper, more defined cheekbones.
Yes, there is a way to make your lipstick last longer. The best way to give your lipstick staying power is by using lip primers. Think of lip primer as a foundation that you apply to your lips. This helps keep your lipstick looking smooth, and allows it to stay where it should be for longer. The best lip primers have the added effect of moisturizing your lips and shielding them from the drying effect associated with some lip makeup. To use it, simply apply it to your lips as you would a lip balm, before applying anything else.
Mascara may be the most popular of all the different types of makeup. It can really help to accentuate your eyes and allow you to make a fierce impression. According to MakeupGeek, the key to successful mascara application is choosing what is right for you. Do you need mascara for volume, for length, or for curling? If you are not sure what works best for you, consult a professional. Whatever the type, you should start applying mascara at the base of your eyelashes to get the full effect, both top and bottom.
An added tip is to make sure you replace your mascara often. Most estimates say that even the best mascara should be replaced every three to six months. You can extend the shelf life by keeping your makeup tightly sealed in a cool place. However, you need to replace it when it cakes or begins to lose color.
With all the different types of makeup out there, it can be confusing to know how to use them all. Follow these tips for mascara, lip primer, and highlighting powders to get that look you really want before heading out for your big night. Do your own thing, but do not be afraid to seek professionals for help on defining your style.
