DIY: How to make foundation for your skin tone
Perfectly matching Foundation is the must for a beautiful makeup look. Nevertheless finding the right shade is honestly hard. What is most unfortunate and regrettable is buying a foundation only to find later out that it does not match your tone. So what to do now? Buying a new one would be the next emergency step, right? But what about the one that you already bought but does not match your tone? There is a way you can change the foundation to your tone.
Let’s see how-
- If you want to lighten up the foundation, you will need a foundation or bb cream or concealer that is few shades lighter than your tone.
- If you want to darken up the foundation, you will need a foundation or bb cream or concealer that is few shades darker than your shade.
- First, take a bowl or foundation mixing palette.
- Take a tiny amount of the foundation
- Mix it with the lighter/darker shade of foundation/bb/ concealer
- Keep mixing until a homogeneous mixture is formed
- To get the desired shade keep adding the lighter/darker product
- Test it on your neck to see if it matches with your tone.
- Mix liquid foundation with a liquid product. Using powder will not make the mixture smooth. There might be clump formation.
- You can use bronzer instead of darker foundation to darken up a lighter foundation.
It’s a piece of cake, right? You don’t have to throw away a foundation just because it does not suit your skin. Is there any other way to make a foundation especially for your skin tone? Let me know~
