Tinted Moisturisers That Come In More Than Three Shades


The standard Tinted Moisturisers (or BB/CC Cream as they are known now) comes in three shades: light, medium and dark. A quick look around you will tell you that there definitely aren’t three general skin tone groups. That dark BB Cream doesn’t flatter everyone with deeper skin. It’s annoying considering BB Creams can do about nine different things, making them aworthy part of any make-p bag. Luckily, there are some brands that offer more than three basic shades so you can get a better match.
