NARS Illuminator in Copacabana C$39         

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation C$68

Foundation x Illuminizer

Do you want the perfect glow that delivers radiance? So, it isn’t over the top, it isn’t under the top, you know low-key. It’s just right. The right amount of radiance that dry skin or mature skin or anyone for that matter will love this look of a healthy glow. Mix two-to-three drop of illuminizer into your liquid foundation. Mix it all together in a small jar. And, apply it all over your face. Oh, and make sure your illuminizer is as clear as possible. ANy other colour may change the colour of your foundation.

Eyeliner x Flame

In an open flame, preferably from a candle, place your pencil eye liner in it for a two-three seconds. Remove it. Wait one second to cool down and apply. This is a nice alternative to liquid eye liner, gel liner, cake liner. This was my first taste of makeup mixology when I was a teenager. My sister used to use this trick when she was a teen. It was my sister who had showed me this technique. It’s so long-lasting, excellent for evening makeup. 


Clear Lip Gloss x Eye Shadow Shade

Is there a colour that you would like to wear, but don’t have the gloss? Don’t worry about it. Just mix a clear gloss with your favourite eye shadow colour, blush or bronzer to achieve your perfect shade. It must be powder based. Retrieve your two products. Mix your shadow into your gloss. Mix well. You could also use it as a super-shiny eye shadow. 



Too Faced Born This Way Foundation C$49

Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream with Super 7 Complex C$54

Foundation x Moisturizer

When you purchase a foundation, it feels right, the texture is nice, the coverage is awesome. So, what’s the problem? It’s a little too thick. How do you fix the problem? By adding anywhere from a couple of drops of moisturizer to a few drops. This actually thins out your liquid foundation.
