Blog #62: Korean Makeup Tutorial: DIY BB Cushion


Beauties, I'm so excited to share with you my first DIY project! Today, I was able to successfully curate my own BB Cushion. Yes, I customized, blended and stored my own Cushion Foundation/BB using a very convenient cushion case I got from Althea Philippines.













The It's My Cushion Case Set costs Php235 or roughly $5 which is very affordable considering all the possibilities you can do with it. Besides curating your own cushion BB / Foundation, you can also DIY a cushion blusher or primer. Once I finish another round of spring cleaning and find some extra tints I no longer use, I'll do a DIY cushion blusher next. :) Unfortunately, the pink cushion set is already sold out but fret not, they still have the mint variation on hand. ;)





The cushion set comes in a cute pink box containing the name of the product. I love how minimal and yet, pretty it looks!









Aside from the It's My Cushion Set, I also needed a few more items. Luckily, I have all of them at home.









To those who have sample-sized / travel-sized products, you can also use that to make it more convenient to use. I found out I have some sample-sized BB Creams (Missha M Perfect Cover and Banila Co. It Radiant CC Cream) lying around which I haven't used and the smaller version of the M Signature Real Complete BB Cream which I haven't used for a long time since I always tend to forget about it being hidden away in my stash.










Now that we got everything we need, let me share with you my very first DIY project! I suggest you use an earphone when listening to the audio because I just realize the audio's a bit soft without the earphones. 











So... how was it? I think I did a pretty good job for a first timer! Haha





Here's a rundown of the steps for the DIY BB Cushion I just made:




  • Pour 2/4 of the main BB Cream









  • Add in 1/4 of the secondary BB Cream








  • Layer in 2/4 of a primer of your choice






  • Mix all the creams together





  • Push the sponge into the container to absorb the product





  • Repeat the above steps - combine the remaining BB Creams and Primer and mix them on top of the sponge








And that's it. You have your own customized BB Cushion! :D 









Did you enjoy the DIY project? Sound off on my comment box to lemme know what you guys think. ;)

  2. Di pala mahirap! I wanted to include this in my cart but I was afraid I'd mess up so I just bought a BB cushion. I have lots of BB samples/sachets here so I'll surely buy this next time!

  7. This is a nice DIY. If you want to achieve the shade that you want this is a good project. I agree it's a bit messy when mixing colors.

  13. That was quite a trick. I also use BB pero very minimal kasi ang sensitive minsan ng application, parang masobrahan lang ng konti, ang pangit na.
