You can mix small batches and store them for later or you could mix up a fresh batch when you need.But a word of caution: Use products that your skin is familiar with and always do a patch test before using it on your face.So now that I’ve got that off my chest onto the dupes.
Dupe 1: Sweat Proof Foundation
“Mix a good quality, high SPF laden, water resistant, sweat resistant, non comodegenic sunscreen with an oil free water based foundation to transform it into a sweat proof sunscreen.”
I use Ansolar Sunscreen with SPF60 along with Maybelline Wonder Finish Liquid Foundation.
Dupe 2: Illuminizing Foundation
“Mix a couple of pinches of illuminizing powder or your favourite pink/peach blush with your regular foundation to concoct your own illuminizer.”
I use Color Bar Blush in Peachy Rose since it’s a mix between a highlighter and bronzer (and because I dropped it and ended up with broken/powdered chunks) along with Cover Girl Clean Makeup Foundation.
Dupe 3: Anti Acne Foundation
There are a few anti acne foundations available but these are hard to come by.Hence the need for an anti acne foundation dupe.Earlier when I posted Chemical Peels At Home Part 3 : Salicylic Acid Peel, I introduced Aspirin as the magic ingredient to ward off acne since it's made up of Salicylic Acid.If you look at any anti acne medication or even foundation Salicylic Acid will always figure as the key ingredient.Which makes duping an anti acne foundation a cake walk for us.
“Crush a tablet of Aspirin and mix with a mineral powder based foundation or loose tinted powder and apply using a kabuki brush.Alternatively you could also mix liquid foundation with a crushed aspirin tablet but the salicylic acid might react to the other ingredients in the liquid foundation so it’s safer to use in a powder form ”
I use Dispirin with Lakme Rose Powder.
