To me, CC cream is one of those makeup products that just slip through the cracks. Most of the time, I throw on a good primer as a base and tend to just go straight for the foundation (or trusty skin tint). But maybe it’s time to rethink that strategy. CC cream can act as an important extra complexion enhancer if you struggle with redness, uneven skin tone, or just dullness in general. It’s the secret to any radiant makeup look that many of us have been sleeping on, and of all places, the drugstore seems to be the place to look if we want to get in on the action without spending a pretty penny.
Although it is a great step to add, finding the right one for your specific skin type can be a bit daunting without a little help. To save you some time (and dollars), I’ve rounded up the best drugstore CC creams for each skin type. I will note, however, that shade ranges for CC creams still appear to be quite limited—sigh. That being said, there are still also some great options for Black and Brown skin tones included below. Enjoy!
