What Is The Difference Between Toned, BB And CC Cream?

 Recent years the market was flooded with products which, despite their popularity, many women still do not know their purpose. It is not at all unusual, because many abbreviations and very similar products on the shelves sometimes looks very confusing.

  The beginning of the cosmetics industry was marked by two products, without which we cannot imagine beautifying even today - powder and moisturizer. A moisturizer is the most popular product of preparative cosmetics, and various types of powders allow different levels of concealing imperfections. Compact, Powder, Liquid it is less important, because the main function of powders was hiding, while face care was achieved using creams.

Toned cream came out of fashion

  As the cosmetic industry has evolved, so she has attracted a growing number of women with different specific needs. For the needs of young skin and women who do not need a lot of cover-up was created the first toned cream. Her cover-up is weaker, almost imperceptibly, and therefore ideal for women who have problems with dry skin and lack of hydration, but otherwise have normal complexion.

  BB creams conquered the world a few years ago, and is a common prejudice that they originate from South Korea. However, their homeland is Germany, where the dermatologist Dr. Christine Schrammek developed a product that to its patients after laser treatment will provide sufficient care, but also to conceal redness. Even the name itself means "balm for irregularities" (Blemish Balm).

  BB creams are slightly denser in their texture, have little more cover-up than a toned cream, but also a variety of ingredients that can be anti-aging, combat acne and pimples, give luster to the skin. Some even go so far as to claim that their BB cream is substitute for all other products for the face as day cream, serum, base for makeup, powder and concealer

 Of course, to the words of the manufacturer, we should not always believe, but the fact is that your satisfaction with BB cream, as well as any other product, will most depend on your skin type.

  CC creams are the latest trend in this category of products and in fact, in their name they hide the name Color Control.

They are an enhanced version of BB cream in which it emphasizes their nourishing role. CC creams have all the nourishing characteristics of BB creams, but also stronger camouflage power. Some even hide at the level of powders with medium strength, making them ideal for women with stronger irregularities.

Pitfalls and problems

  Many women expect miracles when they buy BB or CC cream, because most of them are aware of the effects of toned cream and expect something more.

  The biggest objection that goes BB cream is a bad choice of shades, because most brands have only two shades - light and medium, which are not coordinated with the marks of other products and is so bright shade BB creams are often medium shade in the category of powders.
  A common problem is also the oxidation, (color change on the face after a while), as well as the appearance of unwanted shine and greasy T-zone.

  What many women disappoints is that they feel that their BB cream disappears quickly from their face, especially if you previously applied moisturizer and it is important to find BB cream that suits with the textured to our skin type, desired effect, but has also been in good relation with our everyday care.

  Harder concealment of CC creams makes them an excellent substitute for powder and an ideal combination between powders and BB creams
  Manufacturers have even solved the problem of lack of shade, but it still does not guarantee that it is a perfect product that will satisfy all.

  Regardless of their popularity, a large number of women still in the bag also has a powder, because old habits are hard to solve, and many believe more to conventional products then novelties which are every day more and more.

Is Your Makeup Artist Really Professional ?

 Is your makeup artist really a pro or he/she is just representing like that? Being a professional makeup artist does not mean they know their job, but that they are working this job for money. Here are a few things to note.

Relationship Make-up artist - You

  The most important thing is that your makeup artist has ability to listen to you. For nothing will be your perfect black "smoky eyes", if you wanted your makeup to look natural (as if you do not have it). The obligation of make-up artist is to be kind, even though this could may not be his day. You've come to do the makeup on, and not to listen to on his accounts, children, divorce or his financial situationThe delay also is not a characteristic of professionalism.

Personal Hygiene
  You sat on the chair, makeup artist began to do the makeup on you, and did not wash his hands before! Make-up artist had to come to the salon, grabbed the (at best) for at least three locks (from the house, the car and from the salon).

  Do not hesitate to ask him nicely to wash his hands. Nevertheless, it is your face we are talking about.

Hygiene of Accessories

  During makeup, brush fell to the floor. Make-up artist culturally raised the brush, "blew the dust" from her and continued to work. Brush from the floor and "air" from his/her mouth are enough reasons to feel free to stop and ask them to wash the brush. Do not forget, it's about your face we are talking about.

Type of Makeup Which Makeup Artist Uses

  There is no "professional makeup". When we think of professional makeup, means that she needs to look good on your face and that has to stay there all day. Before you schedule an appointment, ask which makeup, makeup artist is using (ask at least for powders).
  Here are a few brands that are commonly found in the suitcases of make-up artists with whom you will not go wrong: Artdeco, Mac, Pupa, Sephora, Bourjois, Deborah, NYX, YSL, Dior, Chanel, Lancome, Makeup Forever, Collistar, Guerlain, Too Faced, Urban Decay...

Information and Recommendations

  We live in the age of the internet and social networks where any information is available at all times. See makeup artist works before you decide to, also ask around to see your friends, what is their experience and do they have someone to recommend. 
The best advertising is, according to what people are saying "from mouth to mouth". Still, you do not want to throw away your money.

The Cost of Makeup

  Not always means "
How much money, so much music." More and more often we come into a situation that makeup artists are planning to get rich overnight, so they do makeup on you for some totally unreal high price with very cheap makeup.  Beware of these! It is only because we are not informed.

  Prices vary as depending on which city you live in, so to the very make-up artists (if they have a famous name or are anonymous, also by makeup and makeup technique used).
  If you come to this part of the text means that you care how much you spend and what for that amount you can expect.

Term Scheduling / Cancellation

  A very important thing. Here I step to the side of makeup artists. If you already expect from a makeup artist to behave in accordance with the above written, then it is also expected from you expect to be "professional". Yes, we are people and it is normal sometimes unforeseen situations t happens to us.

  If you are prevented from appearing at the scheduled time, you are expected to inform your makeup artist at least several days in advance (no later than the day before). Very bad impression you leave if you do not show up for your appointment, and you have not phoned either to cancel. If the makeup artist is professional, then for you probably he will never have a free term again.
