My love for foundation makes me keep coming up with foundation DIYs (Dupe It Yourself: Three Way With Your Foundation).And this post is very special because there have been loads of times when I ended up with a wrong foundation only to wonder what to do with it.So the next time you end up with a foundation you don't like, just recycle like me.
Here's what you can do if your foundation is:
Convert it into a gel foundation by adding a few drops of rose water and a blob of aloe vera gel.This will dilute the foundation plus make application easier.The aloe vera gel will help absorb the foundation better too and act as a primer (Dupe It Yourself:Face Primer).
If the consistency is too thick to work with you can try thinning it down with a few drops of mineral water or toner.Or the thick foundation will happily double up as a concealer, specially the accumulated foundation around the inner rim of the cap and bottle.
Depending on the formulation some foundations can look pretty flat and lifeless.Mix a a few scrapes of a pearly peach or pink blush to instantly rev up your foundation.Alternatively you can try adding an iridescent powder highlighter or bronzer to give your foundation that extra kick.
