What is CC Cream?

We all know BB, but CC? It’s becoming popular in Hong Kong and Taiwan. The two brands offering it here say it’s BB but better: higher coverage (like foundation), lighter texture and more natural finish (like tinted moisturiser).

Skin Inc Pure UV Protect+, $58, is called CC for its ingredients, collagen and ceramides. In one shade.

Rachel K Cosmetics Mineral CC Cream, $35. The CC stands for colour control (it helps conceal redness). In three shades.

Ombre Lips
Not to be confused with lipstick that’s been eaten away in the middle, leaving just an outer ring of colour, this is a look that features a lighter hue in the centre and a darker shade of the same colour family around the edge.
Matching Coloured Liner & Mascara
We call the combo the new bright “eyeshadow”. Why? It gives that pop of colour that draws attention to the peepers in the chicest (yet zero effort) way.
Sleeper Hit
Once a Korean fad, leave-on cream masks replace the night-time moisturiser for skin that needs extra help.
