Caked-on makeup has no business being a part of your beauty routine. Instead, get supermodel-worthy skin by mixing a few drops of a beauty oil in with your foundation. Now, while there are plenty of oils on the market, there are a few facial oils that are perfect for mixing with foundation. Not only are these oils are formulated with hydrating, nourishing ingredients that benefit your skin, but they also give your makeup a flawless appearance.
Wondering how this beauty hack works? According to makeup artist and YouTube star, Wayne Goss, beauty oils can help to thin out the texture of your base makeup. The oil gives the foundation a more slippery consistency, which allows to blend better into the skin. This means no more powdery finishes or transferring makeup. Instead, the oil helps the foundation to be more malleable and blend better across the surface of the skin. Also, I've found that this technique saves me time in the morning as it spends up my buffing process. Wondering which beauty oils you should be reaching for?
