As mentioned in the earlier post I have been mixing up my own foundation using Le Maquillage Make Up Mixer from PAM (make up provisions store) and powder foundation.
I have been using Rock Face Minerals too because it’s a UK mineral foundation that is affordable and you get tons of it – I’ve been mixing two shades together.
I just wanted to say how brilliant the Make Up Mixer is at…well mixing things! Sound stupid but it’s perfect – it takes seconds to turn a powder into a liquid product that is highly wearable on the skin…
A squirt of the mixer – just a bit in needed and a sprinkle of the mineral foundation:
A quick swirl and you can see how it blends the foundation seamlessly. Trust me it was not this easy with my normal day cream plus with dry skin, it totally sunk in a disappeared leaving the powder quite cakey looking.
It works or other products too, such as bronzer. This is the powder bronzer product from Rock Face Minerals with a dot of the mixer:
Here is the result – it looks just like a liquid bronzer!
What a handy product! I’ll be making all sorts of blushers, eyeshadows, foundations with this! Admittedly it takes time so I will premix my base perhaps in weekly batches!
