DD – NOT JUST A CUP SIZE!

WHAT IS A DD CREAM?

Well therein lies the problem. At the moment there are few on the market but some brands have considered it a ‘Daily Defense’ Cream, almost like a traditional healing balm for problem areas like elbows, knees etc. however, Julep, has brought out a DD Creme that is just like a CC or BB but with more coverage!

I have worked in the Beauty Industry for over 25 years and now, even I am getting a little confused. So for my own purpose as well as those of the reader I thought I would do a quick sort through of what’s what.

1. Primer – this should be used under a foundation and is usually a clear gel or a green or white emulsion that gives a matte finish. It helps to tone down high colouring but does not give coverage on its own.

2. Tinted Moisturiser – this is a very light colour wash to be used for a hint of colour. You would also need to use a concealer to even out any uneven skin tone.

3. CC Cream – this is a Colour Corrector, lighter than a BB in texture but has more skincare elements than a tinted moisturiser.

4. BB Cream – this is a do-it-all foundation, skincare and offers protection at the same time. This product should give very good coverage to skin imperfections.

5. DD Cream – this gives more coverage than a BB or CC Cream and is known as Dynamic-do-all! It covers sun spots and other signs of ageing.

6. Foundation – this should be the same colour as your skin tone and provide a flawless, unblemished, porcelain canvass on which to apply your make-up. It can be powder or liquid and can be a lighter or heavier texture but there is a difference between a flawless airbrushed look and a caked-on one! Usually, this has no anti-ageing properties.

So DD is not just a cup size! Hope this helped set out the choices, please add your comments or questions.
