Homemade Makeup : BB Cream


Hey Dolls!
What is BB cream?

BB cream stands for Blemish Balm or Base.  It was created in 1960's by German Dermatologist and to be used by patients after undergoing laser surgery to soothe and conceal post-surgery scars and redness while protecting and healing the skin. It was then introduced and popular in Korea and then spread throughout Asia. I believe BB cream has already made its way to Europe and the United States.

A lot of my Beauty Guru friends have been raving about BB cream and so I decided to jump on the bandwagon. Yeap,  I must say that they are super effective but expensive.  Actually, you can make your own BB cream concoction. Trust me, it's super easy! Okay, lemme stop rambling now and show ya'll how to make it.
