Finding the perfect match to your foundation can sometimes be a real hassle. And many times it’s not as easy as just going to the store and picking out one out. Sometimes it can be hard to find the perfect shade and finish of foundation for your skin. Whether it’s to light, dark, to yellow or pink a lot of us have a hard time finding a color that’s ideal for our skintone.
You may wonder what the benefits are for custom mixing your foundation. The benefits of blending two colors of foundation are actually three-fold:
To show you how to mix your foundations, I am going to be mixing the ones I use on a regular basis. I am going to be using the Revlon Colorstay in #360 Golden Carmel; this has a matte finish and can look to flat. Right now this is slightly darker than what I need so to lighten it up and make it not appear so matte so I am going to mix it with Lancome Teint Idole #320 Bisque. This foundation is not as matte finish as the Revlon Colorstay so mixing the two will give me a sort of satiny finish, not to flat, not to shiny finish.
And that’s really all there is to it to mix your foundations. You just need to experiment a little to find out which foundations work best for you and what kind of finish you want on your skin.
