Tiktok has a lot of really neat skincare and makeup hacks going for it, but figuring out what works and what doesn’t isn’t as easy as it looks. After all, if using soap to set your brows and powdering your skin before foundation works wonders, it’s not easy to tell which Tiktoks will push your makeup to the next level, and which won’t do anything for you. Here at LUCY, we’re always on the lookout for the next big makeup hack: it’s something we play around with when there’s slow periods in the shop, and this one was so popular during the summer of 2021 that we thought we could explain to you how it works. Of course, we’re talking about Tiktok’s Homemade BB cream.
A few points before we explain how it’s made and why it works:
Now that we’ve gotten our review down, here are the products we used to recreate the homemade BB cream. We have quite a few lovelies in the team with different skin conditions, so we’re adding a few recommendations for those too.
Oily skin - Maybelline Super Stay Active Wear 30H Foundation: an absolute bomb foundation on its own, this is excellent for oily-skinned lovelies who want their foundation to last all day, but without turning cakey and sitting on top of your skin.
Dry Skin - Catrice True Skin Hydrating Foundation: easy to control and apply, this foundation blends into the skin like such a dream.
Combination skin - Golden Rose Satin Smoothing Foundation: it doesn’t cling to the dry patches, and it doesn’t slide off the oily patches. What’s not to like?
Oily skin - Nyx Marsh Mellow Primer: formulated with marshmallow, this doesn’t feel like much on the skin, which is perfect for people with oily skin who want to try this out - and it still holds your makeup in place! Plus, it dries down completely transparent, making it perfect for all skintones. Dry skin - Technic H2O Jelly Primer: the texture is super fun, but this is packed with hydrating ingrdients to create such a beautiful base for your makeup. Combination skin - Wet’n Wild Prime Focus The Impossible Primer/Base: blurring, brightening, and bouncy, this primer is good for all skin-types, but combination-skinned lovelies will definitely appreciate how it just adapts to their skin.
For a blinding seen-from-space blaze - Pupa Glow Obsession Liquid Metallic Highlighter: there’s two tones, one cool and one warm, and we recommend getting them both because they’re just that good. For a subtle your-skin-but-better flush - Revolution PRO Highlighting Potion: this has a much more subtle finish and it’s made for mixing with foundation to create a base that shines, but in a healthy, hydrated way.
For hydration - Revolution Skincare Passion Fruit Oil: highly moisturing and fast-absorbing, this is excellent for LUCY lovers who want to keep their makeup flawless and their skin hydrated. For plumping - Revolution Skincare Skin Firming Solution: formulated with collagen, this is like a magic eraser for your wrinkles, giving your face a much-needed collagen boost and creating a much smoother canvas for you. For battling imperfections - Payot Pâte Grise Concentre Anti-Imperfections: a lightweight, Zinc-packed dream of a serum, this acne-battering formula is so fresh we recommend it for anyone, though it might not be hydrating enough for some people. For brightening - Payot My Payot Concentre Eclat Serum: Vitamin C, one of the main ingredients for brightening and boosting dull skin, is the key formulation behind this serum, and it also has tons of superfruit antioxidants to make it an even better bargain.
There you have it, LUCY lovelies! If you’ve tried this out already, write in and tell us what you thought about it - do you like it? Do you not? Do you use a product we didn’t mention here? Tell us everything!
