There are a wide range of BB creams available in Indian drugstore market. These bb creams claim to brighten up the skin complexion and blur the dark spots. These bb creams are a must have for every girl as they are perfect for light and everyday makeup. They are very essential for Indian college goers and workingwomen. They are appropriate for women who do not apply too much makeup everyday or doesn’t master makeup skills. BB creams give a very light coverage and looks like my skin but better.

They are perfect for

1.Daily college makeup

2.Farewell or fresher’s party in schools or colleges

3.Office or meetings

4.Day parties

5.Light parties and functions


BB creams contains properties like

1.They moisturize and hydrates the skin

2.They contain sunblock thus prevents from sun

3.Contains primer, thus become sweat proof

4.Contains foundation which evens out the skin tone


UNFORTUNATELY! Indian drugstore market does not have variety of shades in bb creams. They only have standard 2-3 shades, which is very disappointing for tan skin girls like me! We Indian dusky skin girls look white and greyish in those bb creams. We either have to apply very less or mix it with moisturizer. Over the period of time I figured out my way of customizing and making my own bb cream.

SO! Here is the process-

Step 1- Take a small container.

Step 2- Add moisturizer

Step 3- Add equal amount of sunblock with SPF properties

Step 4- Add few drops of primer (optional)

Step 5- Add foundation (adjust the portion as per the coverage needed)

Step 6- MIX! with the help of a small spatula or a bobby pin.
