Ofc not....they aren't all the same shade either & some don't have a SPF...............mine does tho.

All BB creams are less coverage tho.........than CC creams or old fashioned foundations that give that caked on "overdone" makeup look that posters are losing their minds about.......

I grew up in rural area and first woman I saw/noticed with plucked eyebrows was sixth grade teacher. I remember asking another kid if that teacher had been sick or something, her eyebrows looked weird. He filled me in that those werent real, she had pulled out her real ones and drew those on with a pencil. Seemed really weird painful thing to me, but whatever.

I just wanted to clarify in case the poster you were replying to wasn't familiar with BBs. The way it was worded made it sound like properties inherent to BBs.

To quote Truvy from Steel Magnolias: "There is no such thing as natural beauty."

I like the way that I look, but it's nice to "touch up the corners" a little with a bit of eyeliner and tinted lip gloss for everyday wear.

I only wear a full face of makeup for special occasions and/or for photography, but even then, I lean towards the natural side of things. No contouring, false eyelashes, or lipliner.

Honestly, if I was totally natural, I'd have fcompletely frizzy hair, caterpillar eyebrows, and a couple of goat hairs growing out of my chin. I don't think that's what people like the OP mean by "natural." It's more like, "try, but don't look like you try too hard."

I hear you on the hair, although when freshly washed, my own hair is more sausage-curled than anything else this time of year. Be glad of the the thick eyebrows--you'll not be drawing them on when you're old and decrepit!

What I do understand re: the O.P. are the (usually) younger women who look like completely different people with and without makeup. We once had a manager at my workplace who I didn't recognize on the rare occasions when she wasn't wearing a fully contoured and Sharpie-eyebrowed face.

Right, that's the point I'm making. And if I want to think I don't look pretty and if that's the reason I want to wear makeup? It's nobody's business or choice but mine.

When men say they want "natural" beauty, what they are actually envisioning is the natural beauty of 17- year old skin. A 45-year old woman's natural skin, in almost all instances, is a different thing, entirely.

Ok...shrugs...I wasn't trying to teach the use of BB cream tho. I was just talking about my BB cream. It's what most of us already wear BUT so many are talking about too much visible makeup.....like cakey foundation ......AND that just isn't popular IMO. Even CC cream is less coverage than old fashioned foundations for women that need or want a little more coverage but don't want a foundation. Many of them are like tinted moisturizers & have a SPF.

I wear BB cream every day & it's very natural looking & light...it's super convenient to have skin care & a little coverage in one step IMO....because I don't need or want a lot.
