Enter CC creams.
They have the same sheer coverage and impressive skincare benefits of a BB, but boast the added benefit of colour correction, which means they're the ultimate weapon against an uneven complexion peppered with blemishes, acne scars, redness, sallowness, pigmentation and dullness.
In other words, they're a fast-track to flawless, selfie-ready skin without having to do very much at all - and that means we're totally into them.

It Cosmetics - £30
This is so worth ditching the foundation for - trust us. A single pump is enough to cover everything from pigmentation to raging red spots (without looking or feeling mask-like), hydrate sans any oiliness and leave skin wondrously dewy. The shade range is diverse and the added SPF50 protection is the icing on the cake. We'll take two more tubes, please.
Boots - £29
This is the closest thing to a soft focus lens for your face, and even though it's slightly heavier than the brand's infamous BB, it feels like you're wearing absolutely nothing at all. It works wonders to tuck away dark spots caused by too much sun exposure and to diffuse those pesky red blotches that tend to crop up around your nose and mouth. Plus, the shade spectrum ranges from Fair to Dark.
Net-A-Porter - £58
The stuff of legend among beauty journos, this CC cream acts like your moisturiser, dark spot corrector and foundation in one, which means the price is totally justified. Together, botanical extracts and glycerin nourish and plump, while skin-perfecting pigments work fast to neutralise redness and patches of pigmentation. Shades Beige and Tan are great for those with olive skin.
