Beauty Bit-The Difference Betweein BB Creams and CC Creams With AprilAthena7

aprilathena7 bb vs cc creams

Last year BB creams took America by storm, and while there are still very few options for women of color…beauty companies have now moved on to CC Creams. “What’s a CC cream,” you ask? Well just like a BB cream, CC creams have a multiple product in one thing going on except instead of being a beauty balm aka BB cream, it is a color corrector or CC cream. It is supposed to even out dark spots, redness, and the like. Youtube Beauty Guru AprilAthena7 always haws some great videos packed with lots of cool beauty news and advice. Watch her video above to learn the real difference between BB and CC creams, and learn some of her favorite brands. Also check below for some of my favorite new CC cream brands.

DIY: How to Make A Custom Lip Palette and Customizable Lip Color

I am so loving this DIY tutorial on how to make a custom lip palette and custom lip color from AprilAthena7. I really want to try this. I don’t have an old palette case, but I did find some lip gloss containers at Coastal Scents. They always seem to have make up supplies. This is a great way to recycle old lipsticks that you just can’t throw away. I know I hate to lose the last little bit of my favorite lip color.
