BB Cream Vs Liquid Foundation, which is better ?

Hi Lovelies,
Today i wanna share you my thought about base makeup for beginner ^^
For those of you who want to started using makeup, some of you may get confused to choose makeup especially for a product like foundation or bb cream.


What is the exact difference between BB Cream and Foundation ?

*if you haven't read my review about my current BB Cream and CC Cream, you can read : Here ^^

Actually there a lot of difference between this product, except one similarity which to cover our imperfection. (*acne scar, blemish,etc)

So today post, i'm gonna share you my experience and thought for both of products and which one works me the best :

1. Benefits to Our Skin

The ingredients that built for each product is quite difference, almost all the BB Cream is designed to give you brighter skin, reduce wrinkle and moisturizing, depends of the formula for each BB Cream.  
BB Cream also contain SPF to prevent sunscreen. So, BB Cream is all-in-one product, for a skincare and makeup.


For the foundation, there's nothing special about the ingredients that give benefit for our skin. It doesn't really improve your skin, even some foundation may give you a break out, if the foundation is too strong for it's chemical contain on it or else. Some of foundation might not contain SPF on it, so we have to use sunscreen before applying foundation. 


2. Coverage



             If we talking about coverage, hands down to foundation. BB Cream don't have a really high coverage, it slightly give you a sheer-medium coverage to your skin. If you have a lot to cover, i suggest you to use foundation instead BB Cream. For a beginner, better to use BB Cream first because BB Cream is more lighter than foundation, then if your skin get used to it, you can switch to foundation if you want to upgrade to the next level of makeup. ^^
              But, nowdays, the BB Cream is already improve a lot, it give a better coverage and come up with better ingredients. (*CC Cream and DD Cream)

3. Range of Shades



            BB Cream is lack of shades, they just available on one shade only because it will oxidize and match our skin tone. For some of you, especially if you have a darker skin, BB Cream will give you a really white cast skin and we can barely say that she wearing something on their skin. 

           Foundation have much more shade and it also doesn't oxidize because the shade is our natural skin tone. Not to mention the purpose of this product is to cover and even out our skin tone like a good canvas in our face. 

          Actually if view both of product from shades, i will choose foundation instead of BB Cream, because sometimes BB Cream makes my face really white even it already oxidize and match our skintone. But, i realize at the end of the day, BB Cream makes my skin looks dull. I don't know it only me or not, but i think the bb cream melt into my skin because of the humid weather and makes it oxidize to different shades. Actually I'm not saying the foundation wouldn't melt on your skin, it depends of the foundation and how long the staying power would last on your face but it wouldn't change the color on your face.

***

Overall, i can't choose which better because even they share a similarity of purpose which is to cover up our imperfection,  there a huge difference between each product. In the daily basis, i prefer using BB Cream because it's really simple and time saving for a lazy person just like me. It's already contains SPF and benefits to our skin. Actually i quite like the whitening effect BB Cream give to me and it's less harsh than liquid foundation. But sometimes i realized it's a bit too much because my skin tend to look really white from my natural skintone. So i have a love-hate relationship with BB Cream. 

            Then, If i want more coverage or i have a special occasion, i will using foundation instead of BB Cream. I suggest to all of you, don't buy cheap or untrusted liquid foundation because if you have sensitive skin, it will damaged your skin or the worst, it can cause a break out.  I start to realize to invest more on skincare than a makeup because the more you have a good skin, the less you need to cover. It means a little Makeup we use too :) 

Thank you for Reading ~! ^^,

  2. Foundation! Buatku, aku gak perlu pakai bb cream << udah kebanyakan pakai skincare sampai kadang berasa berat ini wajah LOL jadi kalau pas butuh ajah gitu ya, aku pakai foundation. Kalau gak butuh, aku lebih milih wajah bebas dari warna warni #apalah maksudku kalau bisa sih, aku pakai moisturizer doang aja gitu, dirawat wajahnya dan meminimalkan kerusakan di kulit. Kan eike maunya kalau Farrel udah 20 tahun, eike masih kenceng gitu wajahny GROR

  3. Thanks ya infonya. Aku gak pernah make up-an tapi sekali-kali pengen juga coba, hehehe. Mau coba pakai BB cream, tapi takut banget bikin mukaku keliatan oily. Pakai foundation kok keberatan rasanya. Aku beli ZA liquid foundation, berakhir jadi gak pernah dipake gara-gara takut ketebelan, hehehe. BTW, kalau pakai BB cream sebelumnya harus pakai moisturizer dulu gak sih? :)

    1. hi indi :)
      kamu bisa cari bb cream yang memang untuk muka yang berminyak :) sekarang udh banyak banget bb cream yang formulasinya sudah disesuaikan dengan keadaan kulit pada umumnya.

      liquid foundation dari ZA menurut aku kualitasnya termasuk bagus loh, kalo kamu takut ketebalan, kamu bisa pakai di daerah yang kamu ingin samarkan aja :D Pakenya dikitttttt aja biar jadinya natural ^^

      kalo aku rekomendasiin harus selalu pakai moisturizer sebelum ber makeup ataupun engga :)
      biar kulit lebih lembab dan mencegah timbulnya keriput
      walaupun bb cream cukup melembabkan tetapi kalau kita udah pake moisturizer, bb creamnya akan lebih mudah di baurkan

      hope it helps :D
