Use the Concatenate function

= Concatenate(B2, ":", C2)

Note you can use a space ": " if you need the space between.

Alternatively, you can use the ampersand to concatenate:
=B2&":"&C2

and ALTERNATIVELY  :-)
if you didn't bother with formula then here you use the below macro code to do it all at once

Sub joincells()
    Dim myrange, mycell As Range
    Set myrange = Sheets("sheet1").Range("B2", Range("B1047586").End(xlUp))
    For Each mycell In myrange
        mycell.Offset(0, 2) = mycell.Value & ":" & mycell.Offset(0, 1).Value
    Next mycell
End Sub
