Helloo lovelies! I’m currently typing this post at work ha-ha not a good example to live by but I have a bit of down time and figured I would share with you my awesome BB cream that I made this morning . Its summertime yall which means no more cakey foundation and strobed concealer its time to lighten up what we put on our face so we don’t melt away ha-ha. So this post is how I make my homemade bb cream. It is super simple and you probably already have the ingredients in your make up bag so it’s FREEE ☺

What You Need:
*SPF Moisturizer – I use Neutrogena SPF Moisturizer
*A Concealer or Foundation (pick one) that matches your skin tone or even a little darker – I use a cheaper foundation called Maybelline Fit ME and the concealer I use is the LA Pro Concealer. You don’t want to use expensive products for the diy 🙂
*Empty container or jar for the product (I use travel containers from Walmart that are a dollar)
*Liquid Highlight (Optional)- My absolute fav is the L’Oréal True Match Lumi Glow Armour.
How to Make:
Step 1: Gather your materials
Step 2: Into the empty container Mix about 2 tablespoons of moisturizer with around 1.5 tablespoons of foundation or concealer.
*if you want more coverage I recommend using a concealer rather than a foundation. Also , the moisturizer may lighten the mixture if you’re a darker skinned like myself the mixture may be too light so I recommend adding a little more concealer until it match your shade. If it becomes too dark add more moisturizer to lighten the mixture
Step 3: Add 1-2 drop of highlighter to the mixture – I recommend start small and add more if necessary
You know its summer so I got to add highlight for that summer glow ☺ adding the liquid highlighter adds a little dewiness to the bb cream giving you a nice summer look. This step is completely optional.
Can you believe that is it? Yess yall it is literally only 2-3 ingredients and can be whipped up in minutes. It may take some adjusting of shades but once you find the perfect shade – you now have a cheap and effective BB cream.
