It’s Bronwyn here today to give some tips on why choosing a Yellow Based BB Cream is better than a BB Cream with a Grey Base.
Grey Based BB Creams are EVERYWHERE! Have you ever purchased a BB Cream before, applied it to your face and then throughout the day, notice your face looks very grey or even thought to yourself “why do I look sick?”, I know I have. There was 1 BB cream I bought after hearing how popular it was then later found out it had this weird grey toned color to it. This ultimately made me have no desire to use the product again. This Grey BB Cream base is a common issue that can occur in a lot of bb creams, even in popular products and brands. Some people may prefer the grey base, but many people generally prefer a products that matches their natural skin tone as closely as possible.
Why Grey Base is Undesirable
Grey based bb creams are products I do not recommend. Even if you are more on the pale to fair side. Grey BB Creams overall do not portray a natural skin tone. Looking grey or ashy on the face can commonly give the image of being ill or sick, as grey/ashy skin is mostly viewed to low blood circulation, and those who are very ill. However this is my personal opinion on grey based bb creams.
Why Yellow Based is Desirable
Yellow Based BB cream is more matched to natural skin tones. Its slightly warm undertone, unlike grey mimics the look of healthy skin. Yellow base bb cream is also more easily matched to multiple skin tones, while grey based bb creams are more limiting to who can actually wear them and still look natural. These are some reasons as to why I always prefer my bb cream to have a yellow base. It blends more easily into my skin tone, matches well with my neck and it doesn’t make me look ill or sickly.
