DIY – How To Make Your Own BB Cream

Guest Post By Neel

I have been hunting a BB Cream since a long and most of them actually disappointed me. And everyday using a foundation when you are late for work turns out to be stressful. Finally, I decided to make my own BB Cream where I have the right amount of moisturization and coverage at the same time and which does not give a made up look, which looks & stays fresh throughout the day.

Things Needed:

  1. Daily Moisturization Cream – I am using Neutrogena Oil – Free Moisture (My skin loves this cream, be it winter or summer)
  2. Daily Sunscreen – I am using Vichy SPF 50+ (Not a big fan of this cream but works wonderfully in my BB Cream)
  3. Your favorite foundation – I am using Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation in Warm Golden(It gives about medium coverage and when included in BB Cream Recipe, it gives decent coverage to hide light blemishes)
  4. A mixing bowl & few cotton buds
  5. A container to store BB Cream – I am using my old Forest Essentials Lip Balm container. Its small & easy to carry around plus it has an inbuilt mirror.

How to Make your own BB Cream:

  1. In a small bowl add your moisturizer (about 1 tsp), I suggest you make BB Cream in small batches, I make mine that lasts for about a week.
  2. To this add Sunscreen (about 1 tsp).
  3. Now add your foundation, again same quantity but you can increase or decrease the foundation quantity as per your need. If you need more coverage, add a little bit more or if you need less reduce the quantity. You can even include a concealer at this stage, if your foundation doesn’t give required coverage.
  4. Mix everything well with the help of cotton bud. Since, the texture of the all the products is different it won’t get gelled into a single product (like a BB Cream you get in market) but when you blend it on the skin, it gives results which are far better than the BB Cream you purchase from outside.
  5. Store it in a tight container & use as required. Your BB Cream is ready.

In the pic below, I have swatched & blended the Homemade BB Cream on my arm and it is perfect for my skin type. It is easy to make & saves ample of time in the morning when I am running late for work. I don’t have to layer multiple products!
