[BEAUTY]: Foundation Mix-Ins for Winter
What Products Am I Adding To My Foundation?
With the colder weather starting to settle in, the air becomes SO dry here in Pretoria (even more than usual – my allergies will vouch for that). So I’ve started adding a mix-in to my foundation to give my skin that extra boost it needs. I never used to be one that would mix my foundation with an oil but it’s started to become a necessity for me these past few weeks and I feel it will become part of my beauty routine.
I’ve chatted about these two products before here but wanted to give you a recap of how I’m using them at the moment.
Drops Of Glow
First up, the Drops of Glow Lustre Finish Creator from The Body Shop which is one of the first products I started adding to my foundation. It adds a beautiful glow and mixes so well with my foundations. Like I mentioned in this post, I love highlighters, so sometimes I add an extra touch to my cheekbones. 1-2 drops are the perfect addition to give you a healthy looking radiant glow.

The other product that I’ve recently started adding to my foundation, is the Drop Shot Mix-In Facial Oil from Urban Decay. This is essential when my skin is really dry. I chatted about this oil in my latest “Currently Testing” post but I hadn’t used it properly, since then I’ve been adding a drop now and then to my foundation and it’s perfect for helping to hydrate my skin. This is basically a multi-purpose product as it can be used on its own as a facial oil.
I don’t recommend adding too many drops, 1 drop is more than enough for my skin, as I feel it becomes too oily.
