DIY Makeup Series: BB Cream

Super excited to be starting my first series!  A diy makeup series was the most voted for series you all wanted on the poll, and I'll be posting this series on and off over the next week (or 2).  There are so many amazing recipes I've discovered and can't wait to share them with you guys!  This bb cream is great if you already have some makeup at home and want to try making a bb cream by combining some of those products.  Also, if there's some free samples (or in my case, way too much foundation) you want to make use of this is awesome!  Hope you enjoy and please comment, follow, subscribe, etc. so I can know if this is something valuable enough for you!  (Below is a picture of the products I used for this)
What you'll need:

1/3 foundation
1/3 moisturizer
1//6 sunscreen (the kind you would put on your face)
1/6 primer
a container to put it in

So this is the ratio you should follow, but make as much or as little as you desire :)  I would suggest starting with about a teaspoon of the top 2, and 1/2 of the other ones.  Then, put it in an old makeup container or possibly a mini container, and you're done!



Have you tried diy makeup before?  If so, which ones have you done?

  5. What SPF sunscreen should it ideally be?

    1. It can technically be any SPF you want. Right now the sunscreen I have that's ok for the face is the one in the picture, so I just did that one. But any SPF is fine, ideally 15 or higher though. Hope this helps ;)
