Similar to my previous card about DIY bb cream, this cc cream DIY is inspired by WEI. Though this color-correcting cream doesn't come with Chinese Licorice--whatever that is--you won't be spending $37 on this either. More like $2 (or less) because the ingredients you need are probably already in your medicine cabinet or makeup bag.
For this to work effectively, you need to incorporate bb cream into this recipe. You can use store-bought bb cream or follow my cheap and cheerful Clinique-inspired DIY tutorial here.


* Water bottle
* Bowl
* Spatula
* Pump container (empty)


* Loose shimmer powder (ultra fine)
* Moisturizer
* Sunscreen
* Tonic water


This ratios may need to be adjusted to your personal preference. Just keep in mind that cc creams are supposed to be sheer and not as heavy as bb creams. If you find that the cc cream in this tutorial goes on the same as your bb cream then you may need to add more moisture. Keep an eye on your quantities.
Also, the loose powder must be ultra fine. Don't use glitter. Remember, this is a cc cream not a bronzer. The shimmer powder is only to give added illumination to your skin.
How To
1. Fill water bottle with tonic water.
2. Measure out 1/4 cup of bb cream into bowl (make your own using my recipe here)
3. Add 3/4 tsp moisturizer
4. Add 3/4 tsp sunscreen
5. Add 1 tsp loose powder
6. Spritz twice with tonic water
7. Mix everything very well. No lumps allowed!
8. Store in another empty pump-style bottle and label appropriately
If you're wondering how this cc cream DIY is only $2, this tutorial uses resources you should already have in your vanity. Tonic water may be the only think you have to purchase. You can find it for less than $2 depending on where you go.
Hope you try this out and have fun with it. Makes great gifts for your friends too.
tagging you here @marshalledgar because you asked for it on my Clinique inspired BB Cream tutorial. Enjoy!
@maymay75 you have to find a moisturizer that is "noncomedogenic." like Cetaphil, Clean & Clear...but always check the labels.
@maymay75 I wouldn't recommend this if you have oily skin because I've tested this before at Sephora and the texture works best with dry skin!
I would imagine the eucerin would be too heavy for oily/combination face?
Thanks @DaniaChicago! You put this card up FAST! How'd you do that? LOL
