Oil + Foundation ⎟Tip & Review

Oil + Foundation Makeup Tip

I first saw this tip on Wayne Goss channel & after, on a gazillion of other channels that made it look like they invented the trend 😏

It is as easy as 1, 2, 3 and it goes like this: you just mix 1-2 drops of your favourite face oil (or 10 if you want a dewy look on steroids) with your regular foundation; it is supposed to give your face a delicious soft and lustrous finish. I was eager to try this tip because I have all these face oils that I need to use but mostly because, after watching Goss explanations, it made sense to me. I have acne-prone combination skin and lately, I’ve had dry patches that make my makeup look less than flawless. I’m usually a big fan of oil free foundations but, my Acne-prone complexion means that on one hand, oil free foundations are, most of the time, drying some areas of my face (it just makes me CRAZY!!!) and, on the other hand, regular foundations will mostly break me out. So it was a no brainer to pair my foundations & face oils that didn’t cause breakouts and redness.

It may not be life changing but it works. With the colder months upon us (you know the lucky ones with 6-month long winters per year!!!), I feel like I apply on a nourishing foundation made with products I love!!! Don’t worry, when you add 1-2 drops of oils, your face doesn’t look super dewy, but the glowing finish it creates is really worth trying this tip. I do put on a setting and/or finishing powder on top since I need my makeup to stay put for at least 10 hours. This Wayne Goss tip is totally worth trying, and I now don’t see myself not doing this simple and effective method!!!

  1. I’ve yet to try this but have heard good outcomes – I must try this now! My skin is starting to get dry patches regardless of how much I exfoliate and moisturize! The air is just so dry. I’ll just put plain ol’ argan oil into my foundation and see how that goes.

  2. Huh…so that’s what you use those oils for! I think I have three travel size versions of those maracuja oils from Tarte from subscription boxes except I never knew what to do with them. I can’t wait to try this! Perfect for the upcoming winter season!
