Something I love about makeup is that it's pretty unique to the user. The same product won't necessarily look the same on everybody. But even though your skin tone may bring out the pink in a lippie while someone else's brings out the purple from the same tube, there's still something fun about customizing your makeup— whether that's mixing pigments to create a new eyeshadow shade or finding that perfect lip liner, lipstick, and lipgloss combo. One of my favorite ways to personalize my makeup though, is with products I can mix into moisturizer.
And that's because not only can you customize the color, but you can also adjust the finish and even scent to your preferences. Say you want a sheer-coverage, matte base. Just add one or two drops of pigment into a mattifying moisturizer or primer. Want an all-over strobe? Mix a few drops of an illuminator into a dewy moisturizer or face oil. How about a bronze that smells like vanilla while it's developing rather than that typical self-tan smell? Well, you get the idea. The options are pretty much endless. So you can choose your ideal foundation, highlighter, and even tan, here are 10 products to try mixing in your moisturizer to achieve a custom finish:
Control the coverage of your foundation by adding more or fewer drops of this pigment to your favorite moisturizer, or even BB cream or foundation.
Mix these pigments into your favorite base for added coverage or use them alone to conceal, highlight, and contour.
Easily go from sheer to extra full-coverage with these potent drops that come in 24 shades, so you can find your perfect match.
These color-correcting drops can be used alone under makeup or even mixed in with moisturizer on makeup-free days to help even skin's texture and tone.
Wear these drops alone for a glow wherever, or mix them into your moisturizer or even foundation for a subtle sheen.
Choose a pink, champagne, or bronze glow to mix into your moisturizer. Add a couple of drops for a radiant finish, or add a few more (or even wear it alone) for a more intense luminosity.
For a lit-from-within glow, try adding a few drops of this illuminator that also blurs imperfections to your moisturizer.
Mix a drop in with your moisturizer for a matte, natural-looking bronze. Want to add a contour? Simply add another drop or two to and apply to key areas.
Control how subtle or deep your tan is by mixing in different amounts or different shades of these self-tanning drops.
Boost the bronze on your face or body with these buildable, gradual-tan drops that will leave you with a sun-kissed glow.
Because who doesn't love options?
