With foundations being one of my favourite beauty products of the moment, I have so much time for testing out new ones and also trying combinations. Pairing foundations is something I’ve done for a long time and is something I now swear by. There are a lot of foundations that work by themselves, but each and every skin type loves something a bit different, which is why I love to mix foundations to get my desired coverage and finish.
It can be on a daily basis that I switch up my foundations desires. One day I’ll want light and dewy, the next I’ll want full coverage with a satin finish. So because of that, it’s good to have a line up of foundations that I know work to get whatever I desire for that day. I tend to mix foundations to get a different finish instead of shade and here are my favourite combinations.
If I’m fancying medium-full coverage, one wearable for the day and evening my favourite combo is the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation with L’Oreal’s Nude Magique Cushion Foundation. Together, these two give me my favourite foundation yet. The MUFE foundation gives the perfect flawless coverage that lasts all day and night and it’s buildable depending on whether you want a medium or full coverage. Then I go over the top with the L’Oreal Cushion Foundation and apply this with my trusty Beautyblender, and this adds amazing dewiness. I put this foundation on top instead of mixing them together as the cushion foundation can only be applied on its own as its a cushion foundation that you pick up out of its packaging with a sponge. However, this means they can work their own magic and the L’Oreal foundation is so lightweight it sits so nicely on top.
For a heavier but and even buy doxycycline hyclate online more glowy base the perfect pair is the Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation mixed with the L’Oreal Infallible Pro Glow. The All Nighter foundation is quite a full coverage base I must say, but when applied with a damp Beautyblender it sheers the coverage out just a little bit. I use this foundation as it gives a really nice dewy finish whilst making your skin flawless. The star of the show here is the Pro Glow foundation from L’Oreal as this is what gives the dewy effect. This foundation gives an all day glow and both foundations together have incredible staying power and look amazing for makeup photography.
The next two are foundations I don’t mix together, but use to mix with any other foundation of choice. The Tarte Forest of the Sea Foundation is perfect to add to a lightweight foundation if you want more coverage. I find this foundation great for building coverage and also adding luminosity to the skin. It has a satin finish but gives that ‘your skin but better finish’. This works wonders by itself, but is so nice mixed with lightweight foundations as it sheers out the formula a bit. Another I love to mix with any foundation of choice, from dewy to matte finishes, is the L’Oreal True Match. Although this gives a medium coverage by itself, the formula is quite runny so I use this one to make other foundations feel lighter. This gives a nice natural sheen to the skin, so if I want to make a full coverage matte foundation less thick and heavy, I always use this and mix 50/50.
As I say, everyone has different preferences but I highly recommend these foundation pairings! Do you mix any foundations together to get your perfect base?
