  • How to make BB cream foundation last longer on skin?

    Posted by Anonymous on May 15, 2020 at 9:01 am

    Hello everyone, 
    I m looking for help. My BB cream foundation doesnt last long on skin, it only lasts for 2 hours in door activity with air cons on and need to have makeup powder cover on too.
    Here is my recipe 🙂
    Phase A 
    Water 73%
    Gel Maker 1%
    Phase B 
    Olivem 900 : 2.5%
    Demithicone Resin : 3%
    Isododecane : 5.5%
    EG5 : 5%
    Mineral Oil : 2%
    SilkFlo 364 : 3%
    Phase C : 4.9%
    Mica Yellow +Red+Black 
    Titanium dioxide 
    Phase D
    Saiguard : 0.1%
    My question is
    1. Should i replace any in phase B  to make more matte effect and make it last longer on skin? 
    2. How to increase the cover effect on skin? 
    I am not very satisfied with BB cream or CC cream, i want to make full cover foundation. 
    Thank you
