BLEND IT YOURSELF!

BLEND IT YOURSELF!

 

Trust Clinique to come up with something as cool & innovative as their new  BIY ‘Blend it Yourself ‘ Pigment DropsOne or two drops of this highly concentrated pigment can transform your everyday moisturizer into a CC cream, immediately providing you with the perfect amount of colour & light coverage to match your skin. The wonderful thing about these drops is that you can also use them to deepen up the tone of a foundation that is too light, or even add them to your sunscreen to create a cream bronzer with an SPF.

To me this product makes perfect sense as I have always been a fan of blending different shades of foundation together to create just the right tone. This was particularly relevant in the days when foundation choices were limited in New Zealand & even the best brands only had half a dozen different colours to choose from. In my early years as a makeup artist I always struggled to find foundations that were warm in colour & light in texture (the ideal combo) & back when everyone was plastering on thick 80′s Pancake, I discovered Clinique Balanced Makeup (which back then you could only get in America & is now called Superbalanced) & never looked back! These days my kit has a full range of Cliniques Even Better foundation which has an oil free formulation & suits just about every skin type & colour. Im also obsessed with Cliniques Moisture Surge CC Creamcolour, coverage & sunscreen all in one product. You honestly cant beat Clinique when it comes to the perfect base.

Choosing the right foundation can be daunting, so you might find that mixing up your own is even scarier, but BIY honestly makes it so easy. Using the back of your hand just let a few drops fall into a dollop of moisturizer & gently mix together until you get the desired result. Stick with the rule that one drop will give you a very sheer colour, two drops a light coverage & three drops will turn your moisturizer into a medium coverage liquid foundation.

This nifty little bottle of pigment now has a permanent place in my makeup kit- in fact I added two drops to one of my palest foundations the other day to create a beautiful warm skin tone. BIY comes in four shades from the palest through to the darkest & are on counter now RRP $85
