Wearing a heavy, full coverage foundation isn’t always optimal for redheads with sensitive skin. This is why BB and CC creams are great. They often provide more skin benefits than traditional foundation and range in coverage and finish. These two types of face makeup are similar, but not the same. Let’s break down the difference between the two so you know which one is right for your redhead skin.
What is BB Cream?
BB cream stands for: Beauty or Blemish Balm. These products are used with the intent of targeting a skin concern like uneven skin tone or blemishes. They typically have a light to sheer finish and added hydration for the skin and most have SPF. BB cream will not give you the same coverage as a foundation and often isn’t very buildable.

What is CC Cream?
CC cream stands for color corrective or color control. CC creams are used to combat blotchiness, hyperpigmentation, redness, and other skin issues relating to the color or tone of the skin being uneven. You can often get a buildable, foundation-like coverage with a CC cream if it’s a skin tint color. You can also find CC creams that are green to combat redness.
