Quick Tip : How to work with a Darker Foundation

August 12, 2015

how to work with a darker foundation

Key to a flawless makeup is a great foundation and getting it right happens to be the trickiest part. 85% of women end up getting a wrong shade and then the entire thing stays on the shelf forever. Has this ever happened to you? If your answer is YES, then let me share with you a trick with which you can at least use the product efficiently rather than throwing it away in the trash. Today’s post tells you a quick tip on how you can work with a foundation that is darker than your skin tone.



Mix a darker foundation with moisturiser

So if you accidentally bought a foundation that’s too dark for you, just take some moisturizer and mix it with the foundation. This will help lighten it and look much more blended into your skin tone. Top it off with a compact powder to achieve a seamless effect. You can also do a light contouring with a darker foundation. Just apply it at the places you would usually contour and set it with a contouring powder. Simple smile


Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any cool tip for me to try smile

Cheers  *kiss*

    That’s a good one Purva, can it be tried for lighter foundation ?

      Yes shailja, It basically lightens the coverage hence making the skin look more natural
