Flawless face: Best BB Creams for 2014

To transform dull and tired complexions try the new hybrid of skincare, the enhancing BB cream.


BB creams made their first debut in Europe in 2011, after taking the Asian beauty market by storm. BB creams originated in Asia because many makeup users prefer products that allow your skin to breathe whilst giving you flawless coverage. This is essentially the reason why this particular creation has grown substantially,  in a short space of time.

This new blend of cream works to even skin tone, incorporates light-reflecting properties, provide coverage over blemishes and exudes a natural flawless look.

With the warmer weather just around the corner, it’s probably wise to revisit your make up and see what needs to stored away and what needs to join your new summer collection! Products like shimmery bronzes, creamy light based eyeshadows and peachy pink blushers are some things you could consider adding to your makeup mix.
