BB (beauty balm or blemish balm) Cream is probably the most hyped beauty product in recent years. A hybrid between skincare and makeup, it hydrates, primes, and rejuvenates skin while offering sun protection altogether. However, what makes it quite frustrating to the general public is the limited color range offered by every brand, every company. Too light, too dark, too yellow, too pink, tell me if you can relate. Quick solution? DIY!
Use what you already own: a foundation that perfectly match your skin tone (ideally with built-in SPF), your favorite serum and moisturizer. Eyeball your concoction: more serum and moisturizer means sheerer finish. I usually pump pea-sized amount each and mix everything with a q-tip, as shown below. Easy peasy, fine and fancy!
For this DIY, I used my go-to foundation, Guerlain Terracota Joli Teint, Paula’s Choice Resist Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum and Resist Anti-aging Clear Skin Hydrator, both reviewed here.
Here’s moi this morning, I’m wearing my DIY BB Cream!
