I have been obsessed with Wayne Goss recently and watched a lot of his videos on Youtube. If you don’t know him, check out his youtube channel here. He’s got some many tips and tricks up on his sleeves. Not to mention he has really cool British accent which I enjoy listening to.
Out of so many videos, I find this particular trick the most useful and practical – mixing oil into your foundation. He called it “life changing foundation trick”.
The trick is super easy and you’d probably already have all the items needed at home.
You will only need two things. Any foundation + any facial oil.
Which is just mixing one drop of oil into your foundation. You can use any facial oil you have at home. It can be jojoba oil, almond oil, argan oil or any kind of store bought facial oil. You can check out my previous post – 3 facial oils that work wonders. I have shared some of my personal favorite facial oils there.
I have been using this method everyday for the last 4 weeks, and I love it. I love how it gives my face a radiant, glowy look and I actually end up using less /foundation tinted moisturizer when using this method! So you end up using less product, so your expensive foundation would even last a bit longer!
Normally, I only use tinted moisturizer, because I rarely wear any foundation. I feel foundation is a little too heavy for my skin and it gives a too much of a made up look which I don’t really like. I like my skin to look dewy, fresh and I want people to be able to see my real skin. And this trick delivers exactly that!
This trick not only gives me glow, but also hydrates the skin and gives me a very natural, I-have-got-good-skin look.
Something to bear in mind when using this trick though, is while it makes my skin looking really radiant, but after a few hours my face would appears greasy on a warm summer day. (I have normal / combination skin. Depending on the season.) So I find that I have to lightly powder the centre of my face, on my forehead, bridge of my nose, under my eyes and chin. Then it would solve the problem. If it is winter time, powdering is not necessary. It’s best for you to try it out a few times to find out if you would need to powder your face or not when using this trick. As it depends on your skin type and the weather.
If you tend to have combination/ oily skin, just carry a pressed powder in your purse when you first try out this trick. For girls who have dry skin, pressed powder would not be neccessary.
Try this out and let me know how you get on with it!
