Tips to Mix Face Oil with Foundation for Ultimate Dewy Glow

I’ve heard people sing the praises of mixing face oil with their foundation over and over again to achieve the ultimate rosy, glowing complexion. However, every time I try the Beauty Hack myself, something goes wrong. To help me – and everyone else who is struggling with this skincare-makeup combo-get it right, I asked beauty expert, makeup artist and author Jenny Patinkin for her top tips.
The best way to mix your foundation with facial oil
According to Patinkin, there are two ways to mix foundation and face oil. “You can also add a few drops to your foundation or apply the oil directly to your skin as a foundation,” she says.
With the last method, you may not want to cover your entire face with oil before applying the foundation. “When I apply a direct foundation to the skin, I stick to the highlights of the face, the cheeks and not the areas of the face that produce oil, as in the T-Zone.”This makes the makeup illuminated from the inside and less greasy.
Even people with oily skin shouldn’t let this stop them from trying makeup products.
“If you are prone to greasiness and shine, you can use a small total of powder to set your foundation,” advises Patinkin. “I like to apply the powder sparingly with a damp sponge instead of a brush, as the powder builds up very quickly on the oil and can be crossed over at the end.”The wet sponge ensures that the powder is smooth and gives your complexion a hydrated appearance as a whole.
Choose your tool to apply your combination Of oil and face oil
These are personal preferences when it comes to your face oil and foundation tool. Patinkin prefers a combination of brush and makeup sponge to get the job done. “Because the oil dilutes your foundation, I prefer to apply it initial with my fingers or a brush, then blot it with a damp sponge and soften the streaks,” she says.
Why mix face oil with your foundation?
Next to a pink Complexion (and who doesn’t want that?!), mixing a facial oil and a foundation can help you adjust your coverage. “Mixing oil into your foundation can lighten the full coverage, make a matte foundation a little lighter, and make your matte glide and polish lighter,” says Patinkin. “In addition, it can moisturize dry skin.”
