Steps to follow:


Before starting to make BB cream at home, let's see what ingredients we need to create the final product as similar as possible to the commercial creams of this type:

  • Foundation. Get the foundation you normally use or the one you like best. Remember that it should resemble the tone of your skin.
  • Moisturizer. Similarly, choose your usual moisturizer, whichever is most appropriate for your skin type, whether oily, mixed, normal or dry.
  • Facial sunscreen. No matter the season, sunscreen is essential for our BB cream to protect our skin from UV rays.
  • Face illuminator. It's much better if it's liquid illuminator, though you can also use the powdered version. If so, make sure you crush the granules properly before adding them to the mixture.
  • Liquid concealer.
  • Rose water (optional).

Once we have gathered all the ingredients, we just have to mix them all together with a small spatula. Use a small jar or plastic or glass container with a screw cap, like you see in the picture, to make the mix and keep the remaining cream to apply later.

Keep the remains of your homemade BB cream in a dry area with no direct sunlight.
