Let’s Make BB Cream

 

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 tsp Moisturizer w/ SPF
  • 1 tsp Foundation (heavy coverage) **use half a teaspoon if you’re using powder
  • 1/2 tsp Serum
  • 1/2 tsp Liquid or powder illuminator
  • 1 tsp Silicone Primer (*optional; to fill in your pores)
  • Mixing bowl (preferably glass) and spatula
  • Small plastic jar or bottle with pumpbbcreamdiy

Directions:

Mix the moisturizer,foundation,serum, and illuminator together until the consistency is smooth and free of lumps and bubbles.

Then it’s time to test it out!

  • If you want more coverage add a little more foundation
  • If you want less coverage add a little more moisturizer and serum
  • If you want more shimmer add a little more illuminator
  • If you want to cover your pores better add in a silicone primer

Once you’re happy with the results of your mixture then you’re ready to store your BB Cream.  Put it into the small bowl or bottle with a pump and put it to use!


Additional Tips:

You can also create a CC cream by adding either more moisturizer or serum,distilled water or Evian facial spray  (to thin out the BB cream mixture), and more illuminator.

*Be sure NOT to use too much water! The water should not be more than 2/10s of the whole mixture.
