So I usually use maybelline Matt mouse foundation.
But with summer been here and going on holiday I'm looking for something a bit lighter.
A lot of people I've spoke to have raved about bb cream, so is it any good? Does it give you coverage like foundation Thankyou

They generally have quite sheer coverage, which is not necessarily a bad thing! How much coverage does your current foundation give and do you actually need that much coverage? Many people use a higher coverage than they need all over their face, when they could use a sheer coverage and just a little concealer on any blemishes or redness.

I quite like the Garnier BB cream when I'm a bit tanned, otherwise it's too dark but I am very fair. BB creams are basically fancy tinted moisturisers, as they have other skincare benefits. If you like a little more coverage and evening out of skin tone, a CC (colour correcting) cream might be better. Not sure of what your budget is but the Estee Lauder Revitalising one is brilliant. I bought it about two months ago and have used it every day I've worn make up, I think. Foundation is currently gathering dust.

Thankyou for replying
I am very very fair aswell and yes I need some coverage thanks to my 2 ds's.

I tried the Garner one recently and found it gives me the best finish of anything I've used in ages - sheer, natural looking and not at all heavy but covering the bits I want to cover, I love it!
