The Best Korean CC Cream for Dry, Oily, and Combination Skin Types

If you’ve ever heard a friend absolutely rave about Korean CC cream, you’ve probably thought to yourself: “Relax.” It seems like people who like Korean CC creams really, really like them, and they want absolutely everyone to know.

And—there’s a reason for that! CC creams offer a lot of really amazing benefits, and blend the line between cosmetics and skin care. That’s a rare marriage, and if you can locate one that works for you, it can be a real find.

So, below, we’ll dive deep: we’ll discuss our picks for the best Korean CC cream, why we think they’re so magic, how they're similar to a great foundation, how to choose one based on your skin type and your needs, and how to use it. Let’s start with our favorites:

Picks: Our Favorite Korean—and Non-Korean—Options

Here are our favorite Korean CC creams:

BANILA CO IT Radiant CC Cream with SPF 30 PA++

Erborian CC Cream High Def Skin Perfector SPF 25

AMOREPACIFIC Color Control Cushion Compact Broad-Spectrum SPF 50

Here are our favorite non-Korean CC creams:

Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses CC Color + Correct SPF 30

Physicians Formula Super CC Color-Correction + Care CC Cream SPF 30

Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream Colour Correcting SPF 15

Supergoop! Daily Correct CC Cream SPF 35

It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream with SPF 50

…and here are our in-depth reviews:


BANILA CO IT Radiant CC Cream with SPF 30 PA++

BANILA CO IT Radiant CC Cream with SPF 30 PA++ is our pick for a good Korean CC cream if you’re looking for that “glass skin” effect that Korean beauty is known for. You might be able to guess from the word Radiant in the name that this CC cream was designed to make the complexion glow (and if any of our readers are into strobing, this CC cream can be a great option for that technique). We think the radiant effect will be most suitable for those with dry or normal skin, but those with oily skin could likely still use this CC cream, especially on the high points of the face, sort of like a highlighter.

Banila crafted it as a three-in-one, to smooth the skin, protect it from the sun, and to hydrate it. They formulated it with a water complex of herbs that give the formula its hydrating and soothing effects, which can be nice for all skin types, as well as white flower water, which they explain helps to balance skin texture.

The Radiant CC Cream was designed to be used before foundation, rather than as a replacement for it, so it is a little more similar to a primer than a foundation. Thanks, however, to its excellent SPF rating, it can also be used along with foundation to give the skin ample sun protection.

We like this for: all skin types looking for a Korean CC cream that can give a “glass skin” effect and sun protection without covering like makeup.


Erborian CC Cream High Def Skin Perfector SPF 25

The Erborian CC Cream High Def Skin Perfector SPF 25 is another one of our favorite Korean CC creams on the lighter side of things.

Erborian calls it a “magic foundation” because it has a pretty neat trick: the Skin Perfector was designed to come out of the tube as a white cream, but once blended into the skin, it becomes a skin tone shade. We’re not sure how they do that, but we like it a lot­, because it removes a lot of the hassle of finding the right shade.

This is another CC cream designed to give the skin a boost of radiance, so while it can help make the skin tone more even, it’s formulated to give the skin a little dash of glow. If your skin is feeling a little dull, that combination of low coverage and dewy finish can make this a good option.

Erborian formulated this CC cream with moisturizing ingredients, including honey, which is a wonderful moisture-binder, and vitamin E,  which is a skin-soothing antioxidant. Those ingredients can make it a good match for those with dry skin, and those with combination or oily skin might be able to use it instead of a moisturizer. That moisturizing component can make this product feel a little more like a moisturizer than a foundation, and if you’re not crazy about makeup but love moisturizers, this may be a good option.

We like this for: those with all skin types who would like a Korean CC cream that can replace moisturizer, and those who don’t like the look or feel of makeup, but who would still like skincare protection.


AMOREPACIFIC Color Control Cushion Compact Broad-Spectrum SPF 50

Korean CC creams can come in all kinds of forms, and we think the AMOREPACIFIC Color Control Cushion Compact Broad-Spectrum SPF 50 is the best Korean CC cream that comes in a cushion.

That said… it’s also our favorite in the high-end category! We think there’s a lot to love here, as AMOREPACIFIC was designed to be makeup, sunscreen, and skincare all-in-one, with effects and ingredients that justify each claim.

Let’s start with the format. Amorepacific packaged this CC cream in a cushion compact, which can make it very easy to stick in a makeup bag and reapply on the go. As a makeup product, they designed this CC cream to be buildable, so it goes on lighter with the first layer, but can offer more coverage with additional layers (and that’s a VERY rare feature for a Korean product, because they’re not typically known for coverage). it’s also made as a very refined emulsion—meaning, it’s like a cream, but with a lighter, more “evaporate-y” formula, so it’s created to maintain a light, hydrating feeling and a natural finish.

As we’d expect with a high-end CC cream, Amorepacific put a lot of great skincare ingredients in this formula: they used bamboo sap instead of water, in order to make sure that the CC cream is very hydrating, which we think can be nice for dehydrated skin, and they included a Green Tea Treatment Complex to protect the skin from irritation and provide antioxidant protection, which can make it a good option for sensitive skin types. The final cherry on top is that they crafted it with a 50 SPF, which we think is a pretty high level of protection for a CC—and more than the SPF of 30 that dermatologists usually recommend. Nice!

We like it for: all skin types (including sensitive skin) who would like a buildable formula with excellent skincare effects and sun protection. Our pick for top Korean CC cream in the “high-end” category.


The Best Non-Korean CC Creams: Our Reviews

While CC creams are closely associated with Korea, the fact of the matter is that Western brands stepped up and made some incredible CC creams as well, with the following being our favorites:


Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses CC Color + Correct SPF 30

Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses CC Color + Correct SPF 30 is our “just the basics” pick. The name “1000 Roses” refers to the rose stem cells Andalou used in this concoction, which are meant to help support the skin barrier. Because Andalou Naturals is a natural cosmetics brand, they made this CC cream without parabens or potentially harmful synthetic ingredients, which we love, love, love. In fact, the sun protection in this formula comes from the mineral zinc oxide, which we appreciate because it makes this CC cream a great tinted sunscreen option. That’s a neat little perk for a “just the basics” option.

Andalou Naturals made this CC cream with sensitive skin in mind, and that’s very nice. It would be great if it came in more shades—1000 roses is manufactured in two shades, at current—but with such light coverage, you may find that the shades work well for a large variety of skin tones.

We like this for: those with dry, sensitive, or normal skin, green beauty aficionados, and anyone looking for super-sheer, natural coverage or a tinted mineral sunscreen.


Physicians Formula Super CC Color-Correction + Care CC Cream SPF 30

Next up is Physicians Formula Super CC Color-Correction + Care CC Cream SPF 30, which is our favorite drugstore CC cream when it comes to coverage. Because Physicians Formula designed this CC cream to visibly correct dark circles, blemishes, and age spots, we would classify it as a light-to-medium formula.

The “CC” stands here for color correction, because Physicians Formula made this formula with a blend of pigments designed to neutralize imperfections instead of hiding them, so if you have redness or sallowness in your skin it might work for you. They currently make it in two shades, and that’s ok… whenever coverage is involved, we always hope to see a few more coverage options. But two isn’t bad, especially considering how many CC creams are made in only one tone.

The last thing we like about the Super CC Cream is that it’s formulated specifically for skin care. It’s hypoallergenic, designed for sensitive skin and eyes, and because it’s got a sort of creamy texture, it can be nice option for dry or normal skin. Those with oily skin might also be able to use it, but may need to mattify it down a bit with powder.

We like it for: those with dry or normal skin looking for coverage, moisturization, and sun protection.


Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream Colour Correcting SPF 15

Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream Colour Correcting SPF 15 gets our vote as the best CC cream in the “mid-range” category—that wonderful area somewhere between drugstore and high-end—thanks to the combination of nice medium coverage and the natural, demi-matte appearance it was designed to impart. It seems that Bourjois focused on the makeup aspects rather than the skincare aspects when putting this wonderful CC cream together, and that’s an interesting decision for a CC cream—usually they do both eventually.

Bourjois made this formula very moisturizing, with ingredients like cotton flower extract, but it’s also oil-free with a demi-matte finish, so it may work for all skin types (though those with very oily skin might want to powder it to remove any bit of shine).

Bourjois’ main goal with this CC cream was to make it a formula that helps to camouflage redness, dark circles, and overall dullness in the skin, so they crafted it with a variety of color-neutralizing pigments, and that, perhaps, is our favorite thing about this cosmetic—it’s designed to give color correction, but aims to still look very natural, rather than “made-up.” It’s made in three shades—ivory, rose beige, and tan/bronze—and while we would love to see more, that’s really pretty good for a CC cream, which is kind of notorious for only being offered in a few tones.

You can apply it to your skin directly with your fingers for a lighter look, or build it up a bit with a brush when you want a little more oomph. Bourjois is one of those brands known for making complexion products, and we’re thrilled to include this as an option. We'd like it to have a higher SPF—an SPF of 15 is a little underwhelming—but if you're planning on wearing sunscreen with it, we think it's still a great option. 

We like it for: all skin types looking for a bit of coverage and a slightly more matte finish.

 

Supergoop! Daily Correct CC Cream SPF 35

Supergoop! Daily Correct CC Cream SPF 35 gets our vote as the top CC cream for those with combination, oily, or sensitive skin. This has a more skincare-centric focus, and unlike most other CC creams, we find that the finish it offers is slightly more matte than we’re used to, which makes it a potentially good choice for those with oily skin (even without powder!). If you’ve got oily skin and you’re put off by many CC creams, this may be a nice option.

In terms of coverage, Supergoop! explains that this CC cream offers more coverage than a tinted moisturizer, so we think it could be categorized as light-to-medium coverage, meaning it can substitute for foundation for anyone who doesn’t have too much to hide.

What’s interesting about Supergoop! Is that they started out as a sunscreen brand first, and then merged into cosmetics. That type of journey can create a really unique product with some interesting features, and a strong focus on skincare. The sun protection in Supergoop comes from zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, which can be phenomenal for those with sensitive skin who might find chemical sunscreen ingredients irritating, and because it includes hydrating hyaluronic acid as well as some antioxidant-rich natural extracts, it can be a potential substitute for your moisturizer.

This is a really unique formulation, and while it may not be for everyone, it can be a really fun option if you’re looking primarily for sun protection and daily skincare.

We like this for: those with normal, combination, or oily skin who prefer light-to-medium coverage with a demi-matte finish.


IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream with SPF 50

We love all of the CC creams on this list, but if we had to pick one to fall in love with and marry forever, we’d choose It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream. It gets our vote as the top CC cream on this list, especially for those used to high-coverage cosmetics. This CC cream was formulated to offer full coverage, which is rare for a CC cream (though we think medium-to-full might be a liiiiiittle more accurate), but it goes above and beyond just being a makeup product.

It Cosmetics concocted this CC cream to be anti-aging and moisturizing, with some phenomenal ingredients like snail mucin, a central ingredient in a lot of Korean formulations, which research suggests can help soften and soothe aging skin, as well as antioxidant botanical oils that help to moisturize the skin while fortifying it with protection against external aggressors. It was also formulated to have 50 SPF (the highest on this list), so it can offer some fantastic sun protection.

Another area where It Cosmetics really stands out to us is by making their CC cream in TWELVE shades. Twelve shades! That’s almost unheard-of for a CC cream, and last we checked, they even have versions of it with different finishes, including Your Skin But Better Radiant and Your Skin But Better Matte. The original version was designed to offer a hydrating but natural finish that looks, just as the name proclaims, like “your skin but better.”

We like it for: all skin types, and anyone looking for a CC cream that can replace their foundation and cover most imperfections while also offering real skincare effects. Our pick for best Korean CC cream in the “non-Korean” category (lol).


What is CC Cream, Exactly, and How Does it Differ from BB Cream?

BB creams were already a little confusing, and before we could get used to them, CC creams exploded on the scene. If you’ve found yourself standing in the beauty aisle more than once examining a tube of product with confusion, we feel you!

Let’s start with the similarities: BB creams and CC creams are both “two-in-one” products, that combine both makeup and skincare, and are meant to be applied to the entire face. They offer some coverage while also helping treat the skin, and they often have a high SPF rating which makes them useful for protecting the skin from the sun.

Now for the differences! First, we’ll briefly explain BB creams, which came on the scene first:

BB stands for either beauty balm or blemish balm, with many of the first BB creams launched in Korea having skin soothing formulas that helped acne-prone skin. However, as BB creams became more popular, different companies started releasing them with different ingredients to help with different skin concerns. They also started searching for other ways to expand their portfolios, which is how CC creams came to be.

The first CC creams were released by a Singapore makeup brand that is no longer in business, and were marketed as being the “next generation” of BB creams. In practice, this meant that they offered slightly fuller coverage, in addition to the typical skincare benefits of a BB cream. Since the term CC stands for either color control or color correction, different brands ran with it, and started making products that gave whatever effect they had in mind when hearing the term. As a result, the industry is all over the place with the features that their CC creams offer—

And that’s why you may have experienced some confusion. Companies that make CC creams basically formulate them for a lot of different purposes, so “CC cream” is kind of a loose term.

Sometimes CC creams offer higher coverage than BB creams, sometimes they offer lower coverage, and other times CC creams are tinted to have a color correcting shade like pink to neutralize yellowness in the skin or green to neutralize redness. Many Korean CC creams are actually more similar to primers or strobe creams, with a skin brightening effect but little pigmentation. Korean CC creams often have a higher SPF rating than the same brand’s BB creams (though not always), and they also tend to be more moisturizing—though once again, there are brands that break this pattern.

Confused? Bewildered? Yep! It’s really difficult to pin down exactly what a CC cream is, and the features a CC cream will offer vary from brand to brand.

By the way, if you're interested in BB creams, we've written a post detailing our picks for the best BB creams and how to use them.


What is a Good Korean CC Cream Supposed to Do for You?

Since Korean CC creams are so varied, the features that make a CC cream worthwhile will be different from brand to brand, but here are a few things that a good CC cream will definitely do (or definitely won’t do) for you:

  • The most important thing that a CC cream should offer is a coverage and finish that you will love—meaning that it should hide all of the things you want it to hide, while still leaving your skin feeling and looking like your skin. This is totally subjective, so we’ll get into the details in the next section;
  • Sun protection is another important factor that a good Korean CC cream will provide. However, keep in mind that in order to benefit from the full SPF rating you have to apply around a ¼ teaspoon of CC cream to your skin;
  • After that, your CC cream should also offer some skincare benefits that will be suitable for your skin. This is not subjective, but it does differ from person to person, so you’ll want a CC cream with ingredients that will help with your specific skin type and concerns (and we’ll also discuss that in a moment);
  • It’s important that the CC cream look good on your skin when you first apply it, but you also don’t want it to fade or get patchy throughout the day. A great CC cream will stay in place and look great for hours on end, and if it does start to wear away, it will do so gradually and in a subtle manner; and finally…
  • A great CC cream will glide over your skin and it won’t settle into creases, pores, or texture. If a CC cream contains too many reflective particles or is too thick, then it may give you problems. CC cream is meant to make your skin look smoother, after all!

So... there's a lot to like! Now it may make a little more sense why your CC cream-addicted friends make such a big deal about it.


How to Find the Right CC Cream for You

Because CC creams are so different from brand to brand, finding a CC cream that you will love can require a real search. Here are the factors and preferences you should keep in mind when choosing the right CC cream for you:

Coverage Level That Suits Your Needs

We would sort CC creams into three coverage categories: light, light-to-medium, and medium-to-full. Let’s take a quick look at the benefits of each, and which might suit you:

Light Coverage. Many Korean CC creams offer a light coverage—especially CC creams that are tinted to offer color correcting effects. Light coverage CC creams are very sheer, so when they go on the skin, they don’t totally cover it, and may not even hide more diffused areas of redness or discoloration. What they can do, however, is give the skin an overall more even tone, and when tinted they can also help neutralize any discolorations on the skin. Applying additional layers of this type of CC cream will often not increase the coverage, which in itself can be a benefit. With higher-coverage CC creams, if you apply too many layers your makeup can start looking cakey, but with light coverage CC creams you never run into that issue—and that “layer-ability” of light-coverage CC cream can make it easier to use enough in order to get proper sun protection. A lot of people rely on light coverage CC creams as their day-to-day sunscreen because of this. If you have excellent skin or you would like something that is easy and quick to apply and doesn’t look too much like makeup, light coverage CC creams are an excellent choice, and they can also double as primers. Since they are so low on pigmentation, one shade will often fit a few different skin tones once it is blended in. 

Light-to-Medium Coverage. Then there are the light-to-medium coverage CC creams, which are the next step up. They are slightly more pigmented than typical light CC creams, but when applied very thinly they don’t cover much. However, if they are applied with a slightly more heavy hand or in multiple layers, their coverage can be increased to medium, which is what we would call buildable. These kinds of CC creams are almost always foundation-esque in that their color is meant to match the skin tone. They can be nice because they are so versatile, so on good skin days you can apply a quick and sheer layer just to fill a little more polished, while on days when you need to look made-up you can apply a heavier layer.

Medium-to-Full Coverage. Finally, the highest coverage level you will get out of a CC cream is medium-to-full, which means on first application you will probably get a medium coverage, but by adding layers or using a high-coverage application method like a brush, you can get up to full or nearly-full coverage. These kinds of CC creams can hide most blemishes and dark circles, although very intense discolorations might still require a concealer.

If you are hoping for full coverage in a single swipe, Korean CC creams might not be the ideal category for you, since even the ones with the highest coverage level still require a bit of layering work.

The Right Finish

Korean CC creams generally come in three finish types, and we’ll start with what most Korean CC creams offer, which is a natural, satiny finish.

Natural / Satiny Finish. These are crafted to mimic the look of skin, with slight reflectiveness but not a straight-up shine. This can work beautifully for people with all skin types, though on oily skin it will lean a little more towards dewy, while for those with dry skin it might look a little more matte.

Dewy Finish. Some Korean CC creams feature a more dewy finish. A dewy finish is the most reflective finish-level, which gives the skin a very hydrated and glowing appearance. This is often a great finish-level for those with dry skin, while for those with oily skin it can sometimes look a little bit greasy. Korean CC creams are more likely to offer a dewy finish than their Western counterparts.

Matte / Demi-Matte. CC creams will rarely give strong oil-control and they’ll almost never make the skin totally flat and matte—instead, CC creams for oily skin are much more likely to have a demi-matte finish. This means that they will help lightly mattify the skin and control oils, but without making the skin look too dry and while still retaining a more natural appearance. This is usually great for those with oily or combination skin, but it can also work for those with normal skin. Those with very oily skin may still want to powder demi-matte CC creams in order to amp up their oil-controlling abilities.

Find Your Shade Match

Korean CC creams can generally be split into two main color categories: skin-tone CC creams and colored CC creams. Let’s take a look at each:

Skin Tone CC Creams. These are comparable to foundation or BB cream, which means that you need to pick a color that will match your skin tone. You should usually choose a shade that has the same undertone as your skin, especially if you’re looking at CC creams with higher coverage, and that is also not too dark or too light for your skin tone.

Some brands will give you clues as to the undertones of their Korean CC creams, either with descriptions or through the names. In that case, it’s good to know what the undertones mean, and to know what undertones your skin has. Here’s how it generally plays out on your skin:

  • Those with cool undertones are more pink, and their veins offer appear a little purple through the skin;
  • Those with warm undertones are yellow or golden, and their veins appear a little more greenish through the skin;
  • Those with neutral undertones might be more beige or they can have an even mixture of yellow and pink in their skin, with veins that appear blue; and finally
  • Those with darker skin tones might have their skin lean a little more towards red, blue, or olive, which only a few brands are starting to realize—sadly, many CC creams don’t have a wide range of products for people with darker skin tones.

Korean (and non-Korean!) CC creams will usually come in 2-4 shades, with the lighter shades having either cool or neutral undertones and the darker shades having warmer undertones. The wider the shade range, the more variety you will usually find in undertones, and also the higher the chances of finding a good color match for darker skin tones. It is often the case that Korean CC creams come in less variation than non-Korean ones, and they often skew lighter.

The best way to figure it out is by testing the CC cream along your jawline, to see how well it disappears into your neck. With low-coverage CC creams, the color match doesn’t need to be perfect, because once you blend it out, it will usually become more sheer, so it won’t change the color of your skin, but just lightly perfect it.

Color Correcting CC Creams. These are designed in a similar manner to color correcting concealers, meaning they are tinted a specific color not in order to match the skin, but in order to neutralize something in the skin. For example, if your skin has a yellow undertone but you find that it looks too yellow either all-over or just in certain areas, you can use a lavender CC cream to neutralize that yellowness and make your skin look like a more neutral beige tone.

The principle behind these kinds of CC creams is that opposite shades on the color wheel will cancel each other out, and since purple is opposite yellow, then it cancels it out. In the same vein, green cancels out red and vice versa, so a pinkish CC cream can cancel out olive discoloration. Unlike color correcting concealers, CC creams have lighter pigmentation, so they are excellent for neutralizing large areas of skin, and they’re easier to cover afterwards with powder foundation or BB cream. There are also many CC creams that combine a few different pigments in order to neutralize all potential discolorations in the skin. Some are even infused with reflective pigments that help them brighten the skin and give it a glossy glow.

Some Skincare Effects

In addition to keeping in mind all of the makeup aspects of a Korean CC cream, you should also consider what kind of skincare effects you’d like it to have. In fact, it makes sense to approach your CC cream much in the same way you would approach your daytime moisturizer, and look for features that can fortify your skin.

First, let’s talk about the most important skincare benefit that a CC cream can offer, which is “sun protection factor,” aka SPF (you didn’t know that’s what “SPF” stood for, did you? We didn’t either!). CC creams can offer sun protection anywhere from 15 SPF to 50 SPF, which is fantastic, because it means that they can replace your daily sunscreen. The higher the SPF, the likelier it is that your CC cream will suffice even if you live in a sunny place, but remember that you have to apply a high amount of product, and that it will only protect you for two hours of direct sun exposure, so you will have to reapply it if you are spending all day outside (just like you would a regular sunscreen). Usually, a CC cream with higher SPF will feel thicker than one with lower SPF, so if you’d rather have a lighter-feeling CC cream, then choose one with a lower SPF and use it on top of a strong sunscreen.

Next, take into account how moisturizing you would like your CC cream to be, and whether you want it to also have anti-aging effects. Almost all CC creams help to hydrate the skin, but you can look for extra moisturizing ingredients including emollient botanical oils or humectants like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, or panthenol.

The anti-aging effects in CC creams usually come from gentler ingredients like antioxidant extracts, which work by neutralizing environmental aggressors to keep the skin youthful. This means that while a CC cream could help keep your skin youthful, it doesn’t have the reversing effects that strong actives like retinol can have.

CC cream can be an effective moisturizer, but if you'd like to focus solely on hydration, you may want to opt for a Korean moisturizer designed for hydrating skin.


How to Use Korean CC Cream—Basic Steps (and Then Some Makeup Artist Tips!)

Sure, you can apply your Korean CC cream just like you would any other foundation, with a brush or a sponge, but if doesn’t gross you out, there are a lot of advantages to using your fingers. If you decide to use your hands—and a lot of makeup artists we know (ourselves included!) do so—here are some tips:

  • Start with clean skin, and since CC cream is an all-in-one, you may not even need to apply any other skincare products. You might want to apply a sunscreen if you think that a full 1/4 teaspoon of CC cream will look too heavy on your skin. You can also apply a tiny amount of pore-filling primer if your skin needs it, though you can also just mix a drop of it into your CC cream;
  • Dispense a small amount of CC cream on the pads of your fingers, and then rub both hands together to warm it up;
  • For the initial layer, start off light by rubbing the CC cream into your skin almost like you would a moisturizer. Smooth it on in long, luxurious motions, starting from the center of the face and working your way outwards;
  • If you would like the application to be even lighter, massage the CC cream into your skin in circular motions instead. This is a great technique if you are relying on your CC cream to act as a primer under foundation, rather than as a replacement for it;
  • Next, to add a little bit more coverage, load up your finger with a little bit more CC cream, and then tap it over the areas of more prominent discoloration. This will give you a bit more coverage, but should still look seamless;
  • If you feel like the CC cream isn’t looking blended enough, you can bounce a clean, damp makeup sponge over your skin to meld everything together and get a more blended finish;
  • You can stop here if you just wanted a bit of coverage and sun protection for the day, or you can add a little bit of concealer, if you would like to look more made up;
  • CC cream is also a great mixer, and you can combine it with a foundation to reduce its coverage, or add a few drops of it to your favorite primer in order to turn it into a tinted primer;
  • If you have oily skin, are you’re finding the CC cream a little too dewy, or you need the CC cream to last on your skin for a really long time, then you can set it with a powder. Keep things light by using a very fluffy brush and not loading it up with too much setting powder;
  • Tap the brush all over your face if you would like to set it completely, or only set the parts of your face that are usually a little oilier, like the T-zone;
  • If you would like to really amp up the coverage, use a powder foundation instead of a setting powder;
  • You can also extend the life of your CC cream without mattifying it—the secret for that is a setting spray that will create a film over your CC cream to keep it in place without reducing its shine; and finally...
  • Finish off your makeup as you normally would. You can keep things light to fit with the spirit of the CC cream, and use just a bit of blush, mascara, and tinted lip balm, or break the rules and go all out with a dramatic look!

Korean CC Creams and You!

If you’ve ever spoken to a true believer in Korean CC creams, you probably know the absolute adoration a lot of women have for this product. There’s a reason for that—very often, cosmetic products look great, but take something from—either the moisture in your skin, or your skin’s natural glow, or whatever. It’s rare that a cosmetic can make you look good and be good for your skin—and for a lot of people, that’s what their raving about. Hopefully one of our picks for best Korean CC cream meets your needs. Thank you for reading, and happy makeup!
