Why Use CC Cream? Benefits & Uses

Just like the seasons and weather, so do the cosmetics, makeup routine, and desired results shift for a makeup wearer at different point throughout the year.  A CC cream foundation is one of the few makeup products that is versatile enough to transcend all seasons and has solidified itself as a 'makeup must-have' among the masses. 

What is CC Cream? 

While CC Cream has become increasingly popular among natural makeup wearers over the last few years, there is often some confusion behind the term cc cream.  "CC" is an abbreviation for the words color correcting.  Thus, a CC cream is a full coverage foundation that offers additional skin benefits to the wearer.  Often questions arise in the difference of CC cream vs BB cream, or beauty balm.  While both are types of foundation that provide coverage to the skin, CC cream offers a fuller coverage and typically are formulated with additional skincare benefits.

Picking a foundation shade based on skin-tone can sometimes be difficult.  However, due to CC cream's versatile nature, Mirabella is proud to offer four shades of cc cream foundation that work well with a variety of skintones, both warm and cool.

Benefits of CC Cream

• Lightweight, full coverage

• Sun defense with SPF

• Perfects and renews the appearance of skin with targeted correction

• Vitamin E beads moisturize skin

• Anti-aging benefits

Why Mirabella CC Créme?

Mirabella's focus and dedication to creating clean, naturally-based cosmetics free of parabens, gluten, and talc is evident in the brand's CC Créme formulation.  Designed to hydrate, control oil, and create a full-coverage finish, the cc cream foundation is formulated with skin-loving ingredients that perfect and renew the skin.  Vitamin E beads burst onto the skin during application and create a luxurious feel and creamy consistency that is easy to blend to a natural finish. The foundation also offers a variety of benefits for the skin:

• Anti-inflammatory: Bamboo Extract, Lavender, Squalane

• Antioxidant: Cabbage Rose Extract, Rosemary Extract, Vitamin E

• Humectant: Sodium Hyaluronate

• Moisturizing: Avocado Oil, Cabbage Rose Extract, Squalane, Vitamin E

• Sun defense: Titanium Dioxide

Suitable for all skin types, Mirabella's CC Créme is an ideal formula for combination and oily skin and a true favorite among our Bella Babes!

"I love the cc creme! It’s the best foundation I’ve used so far. The coverage is great, it lasts all day, and has a great finish. In my experience, it works best with the prime, pure press, and a setting spray. I have used it by itself when I’m in a hurry and it works great but doesn’t last as long."

How to Use CC Cream

Mirabella's CC Créme is so easy to use!  For best results, start by distributing the cc cream on skin first, using clean fingertips or the Foundation Brush.  Mirabella's Flawless Silicone Blender is another great tool for this!  Then, use one of the following techniques to finish application:

1. Stipple in with the Sculpting Foundation Contour Brush

2. Buff with the Face Blender Brush

3. Sweep and press with the Foundation Brush

Pro tip: Mirabella's CC Créme is very creamy and spreadable.  A little product goes a long way.  Work on one area of the face at a time and add more product as needed to achieve desired coverage and limit product waste!   

After applying Mirabella's CC Créme, National Education Manager Sara Kelly recommends setting the foundation with a powder like Mirabella's Perfecting Powder to lock makeup in place and keep it looking fresh and flawless all day!
