My mother would often tell me that the no-makeup look was the prettiest of all. I believed her and so I grew up not knowing anything about cosmetics at all. During my teenage years, I would often overhear my peers exchanging tips and ideas on makeup while I just pore my nose over my books or something else un-girly. Yet, as I grew older, I realized the need to be presentable during special occasions. There were times when even though I might look pretty without makeup, I was still required to wear makeup as part of the dress code.
However, suddenly jumping into the makeup realm was very overwhelming to me. The only stuffs inside my beauty cabinet were my boring skin care products and a tube of lip gloss. My acne-prone and oily skin was very picky to the things I put on my face, adding more challenge to my situation. I often got intimidated whenever I walked by a cosmetics store due to my lack of knowledge on makeup. I was worried the cosmetics I would buy would end up a disaster.
After learning about BB creams, I knew that these can be a great transition from my no-makeup look to a more presentable yet natural look. The lightweight multi-functional BB creams were better than applying layers of different products. I just needed to focus on buying the right BB cream rather than worrying about buying the right primer, foundation, or concealer.
But first, what are BB creams? Why are they so popular?
