For those of you who have managed to avoid the hype, BB creams or beauty balms are designed to act as both a primer and a light foundation while also being kind to skin.

Fuschia Make-Up claim their cream “primes, tints, nourishes, evens out skin tone, minimises fine lines and helps to strengthen skin,” and for once, this is a product that lives up to its description.

The cream has a lovely velvety consistency that leaves the skin feeling soft with a beautiful dewy glow. It also easily evens out the skin tone which is perfect for us blotchy Irish ladies.

In regards to coverage, this product erases most imperfections while also being light on the skin. For those of you with fewer blemishes, this BB cream is easily worn alone however for a more full coverage, just add a touch of concealer and some powder to achieve a beautiful natural look.

If you are just too attached to traditional foundations to cut them out of your make up routine then this BB cream can also be used as a make up base. When worn, it allows foundation to go on smoother and last much longer while also helping to mattify the skin.

As well its multipurpose make up functions, Fuschia BB cream has the added benefit of a factor 30 SPF to help protect against those damaging UV rays.
