One of my most essential & favourite beauty products at the moment is BB cream- why? For me, personally I’m just not a fan of foundation, I find it too heavy and it just doesn’t feel natural on my face. A BB cream is a perfect alternative- it’s a lot more natural looking, not as heavy, but still brings your skin to life & gives it a little glow. I find a BB cream is a great base before your makeup application- as it smooths the skin and evens out any uneven skin tones. The only slight downside is that it doesn’t have a great coverage over spots, however combined with your concealer works just as good for a bit of extra coverage.

Every brand is producing some sort of new amazing BB cream, so to make things just a little easier for you I have narrowed the search down to my top 3 that I would recommend:


LOreal Nude Magique BB Cream


  • Great price
  • Smart pigment capsules- adjusting in colour
  • Leaves skin perfectly prepped for makeup application- makeup will always hold quite well too
  • Comes in a variety of shades, and you can get one more specific to you (tired skin, light skin, dark skin)

  • Great coverage, long lasting- doesn’t go shiny
  • Contains SPF 25

  • Great even if your not wearing makeup- the finish is perfect for a natural day
