Neutral
Both gold and silver jewelry flatter your skin! You can tan in the sun but sometimes burn. The veins on your wrists look blue and green.

Cool
Silver jewelry complements your skin! You burn easily in the sun—and when you roll up your sleeves, your veins look blue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mix it in!! It has a lot of “illumination”!! I find it a little more difficult to apply than the regular foundation. What I’m doing now is mixing the two, about 1/3 illuminating to 2/3 regular foundation - the result is just a touch of glow!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too Much Sparkle!!!!! I was looking forward to a product that had a natural glow since I had found the matte product way too matte. Instead of a natural look I found that it was loaded with sparkles which I dislike. I love the 50spf, the anti-aging hydrating serum, and the tidy packaging, but I would have been much happier without the sparkles.

Asked by: Gayle Anne
Hi there! Thank you for reaching out to us. We apologize for any confusion, and are happy to assist you further. Neutral Medium is formulated for medium skin with neutral undertones.

Neutral shades are best for our IT Girls, and Guys where both gold and silver jewelry flatter your skin, you can tan in the sun but sometimes burn, and the veins on your wrists look blue and green. Both the Medium, and Tan shades are formulated with warm yellow undertones. We recommend selecting warm shades if you tan easily in the sun, and gold jewelry makes your skin glow!

I am currently using the CC cream in medium and I love it!! Even though I use sunscreen, my skin still gets a shade or two darker in the summer. Can I mix my current shade plus a darker one to address my evolving skin tone? Suggestions?

Asked by: Maverick89
Hi there! You can absolutely mix your Medium CC Cream with a darker shade in the summer time! We recommend trying our Medium Tan shade, as that will be two shades darker than Medium and will have the same undertone. We hope this helps! XOXO Ellie

I have tried bye bye foundation and bye bye illumination foundation in medium and light medium . Both are too orange and dark. I wear medium in bye bye illumination concealer. What shade do you recommend in foundation . I’m a cool with a red undertone. 

Asked by: Becky M
Hi there! Thanks for reaching out to us! Our Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination shades run lighter than our foundation shades to help brighten the under eye area. Based on the information provided, we recommend trying the Fair Light shade in Bye Bye Foundation and CC Illumination instead! IT will have a cool pink undertone to IT. We hope this helps! XOXO Ellie

Is there an expiration date on each product so I know how long the SPF is good for?  

Asked by: weetdog
Hi there! Thanks for reaching out to us! The expiration date for CC+ Illumination should be stamped into the crimped end of your tube! Please know that we recommend only using your CC+ Illumination for up to one year from the day that IT's opened, to ensure that the efficacy of the sunscreen does not change. We hope this helps!

Should the it cc+ brush be cleaned afer use?

Asked by: Susan Jaye
Hi there! Thanks for reaching out to us! While our brushes do not need to be cleaned after every use, we do recommend deep cleaning them at least once a week to ensure that they stay in tip-top shape. For deep cleaning weekly, we recommend using Baby shampoo to clean your brushes as these are delicate enough to keep your brushes safe. Simply, mix a couple of drops of cleanser and lukewarm water in a cup or small bowl. Then gently swirl your brushes around and rinse them well with lukewarm water. This should get everything out! Pat them dry and lay them flat to air-dry. You can store them however you'd like, a simple "fluff" will get them back into shape! We hope this helps! XOXO Ellie

I used the CC Cream the other day and by lunchtime, it had disappeared off of my cheeks and nose. Is there a way to prevent that from happening?

Asked by: Kitkatxo
Hi there! Thanks for reaching out to us! We recommend setting your CC Cream with a translucent powder like our Bye Bye Pores to help lock in your foundation and extend ITs wear. We hope this helps! XOXO Ellie

I would like to try this but I don't want full coverage but rather medium. What can I use to thin it out before application? I do not care for powders.

Asked by: Lizabell
Hi there! Thanks for reaching out to us! If you prefer a sheer to medium coverage foundation, we recommend checking out our Bye Bye Lines Foundation instead. This will have the amount of coverage that you are looking for, but can also be built up to full-coverage if you wanted. We hope you try IT out! XOXO Ellie
