Move over foundation brush, there’s a new applicator in town! The Beautyblender is the new go-to tool for professional makeup artists and was developed by Hollywood make up artist, Rea Ann Silva. Basically, its a foundation applicator, similar to those small triangular sponges, but it does a MUCH better job.

BB creams are the new flavour of the month (they’ve been big in Asia for a while now) and every one from Bobbi Brown to Estée Lauder to Dior and The Body Shop has launched one.

What is a BB cream you ask? BB creams are referred to as either Blemish Balms or Beauty Balms. They act as a muti-tasker in that they provide moisturisation, SPF protection and sheer coverage as well as other benefits such as soothing and healing.  In essence, BB creams are similar to tinted moisturisers, but they go one step further – with added ingredients like hyaluronic acid (which is a skin plumper) and Vitamin C (which boosts radiance) – they are promoted as an all-in-one facial cosmetic product to replace your serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation, and sunblock.
