Your Guide to Face Make Up: CCTM vs Foundation

Everything you need to know about SeneGence face make up

Hey There! I’m Emma 👋

I believe in joy, sisterhood & makeup that brings out the best in you. Lets be friends!


Let’s Talk Face Make Up💋

If you watch my daily IG stories you’ll hear me talk about CCTM A LOT! If you’re new here and don’t know what it is or what it even stands for - this is going to be a game-changer for you! Today I’m sharing the difference (and similarities) between the SeneGence Foundation and CCTM💃


CCTM vs Foundation

FYI CCTM stands for Color Correcting Tinted Moisturizer - its a mouthful so CCTM it is!

Both options contain SenePlex© - our patented skincare complex that rushes new cells to the surface 🙌 Yes, this is make up and skincare in one!

They are also both non-comedogenic which means they won’t clog your pores. I’ve actually received so many reviews about how these products have actually helped gals with acne.

With a mechanic shield equal to 15 SPF these contain sun protection without harmful chemicals! It can also be layered for more sun protection ☀️

My most favorite feature of these products is that they are going to stay on ALL DAY👏 I don’t know about you, but I’ve never had a foundation that has lasted all day and didn’t require touch ups throughout the day. 

They also color match your skin. So no lines of demarkation with these guys.


Color Matching 

CCTM comes in Light, Medium and Deep colors. The color matches 4-5 shades up and down. So about 10 different skin tones can wear a color.

MakeSense© Foundation comes in ten different shades and color matches about 2-3 shades up and down. 

What I love about color matching is that it’s scary to buy make up online. I’m right there with you buying my products from SeneGence© and color matching myself😉 

BUT … I’ve sold hundreds of these and I hardly ever do a color swap - its so easy to color match correctly the first time!! Plus you can always return or exchange. 


The Coverage & Finish

CCTM has a light to medium coverage even though its marketed as a sheer coverage. You get a dewy finish that kind of puts a filter over your skin - so your freckles still shine through. 

I also use CCTM as my daily moisturizer because it is a tinted moisturizer. 

MakeSense Foundation has full coverage with a weightless feel and a matte finish.

Its totally up to you which you prefer wearing and which finish you like for your make up! You can even layer the two together🎉
