&+. Amount of coverage.
With foundation you will find it is defiantly thicker than a bb cream, but that's also because it gives you more coverage. But if you don;t apply it correctly i can end up making you look like a cake face. Ha ha, i personally like bb creme more, there is not as much coverage... but it's great if you are headed out to the beach. Or anywhere else in the sun. If you happen to need extra coverage, just apply concealer to problem areas.

&+. Skincare benefits
Some foundations have skincare benefits, but bb automatically has them built in! Particularly it is meant to clear up skin and keep you looking flawless, while foundation hides your imperfections. bb will enhance your appearance, not make you look totally different. But I also do like foundation as much as i like bb cream. Foundation is great for covering up redness and darkspots, also problem areas (pimples). If i get a breakout overnight and I have school the next morning, I can always rely on my foundation to tint the redness and cover that sucker up.

&+. Limited color ranges for BB
The only downside to bb creams is that there is not yet too many color choices out there. Foundations probably have over 100 different colors out there. But bb's have minimal coverage and blend into your skin more than a foundation. BB works best on really light and really dark skintones.

&+. How to apply.
There are tons of ways to apply foundation and bb cream, but the difference is with a bb, all you need really is your fingertips. With foundation you need to make sure you blend that baby in well as you can or else it can be really noticeable in the sunlight. Think BB cream of more of a tinted moisturizer than a skin care coverage. When wearing foundation, always make sure to use a makeup blending brush, or a sponge (*beauty blenders work great)

&+. Higher SPF
The great thing about BB cream is the fact that it has a TON of SPF. Foundation tends to lack on this important part of protecting your skin. Never leave the house with out SPF on your face! Never! The great thing about bb, is not only are you protecting your face from the sun, but you are also hiding simple problem areas on your face. (If you need extra coverage, as i mentioned before... just use a concealer stick) 

&+. Built in primer
BB cream BB cream BB cream, yes i keep saying enough good things about the bb, and i have many more. BB cream is also something that has a built-in-primer. Priming is important if you want your face makeup to last all day (also eye shadows!). When applying foundation you need to apply primer first, where bb cram is one simple step. Ever see advertisements for bb creams such as "8 benefits in one"? Because its true!)
Just blend into your face in one simple step and you're done!

&+. Better moisturization 
Sorry foundation, but bb will moisturize my face way better than you! Yes thats right, we are saying better things about bb cream yet again. The greatest thing i found about bb cream is the fact that it will never bring out the dryness in your face, and will never leave you cakey. You will never have to worry about the dryness of your skin again! BB has a ton of moisturizer built right in. Foundation can be moisturizing, but can also leave your skin feeling dry if you don't moisturize before applying.


Thats right girls! BB cream is def the better choice. Sorry foundation ): So the next time you go on a makeup haul, choose BB. Better moisture, better SPF, better everything. (:
