However...2 products mixed together can sometimes provide you with your dream product with no extra expense needed.
Example numero uno:
Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation &
Revlon Skin Lights Highlighter
The gorgeous weather over the last week or so made me crave a dewy finish foundation but still with the longevity and coverage I need. I have to admit, I was contemplating spending another £25.50 on Double Wear light but, a 50/50 mix of these products stopped me in my tracks.
The finish is one that dreams are made of: skin that looks flawless, dewy and healthy all day.
The coverage is only slightly reduced by the highlighter and the lasting power maybe is cut by maybe one or two hours but this is something I can deal with for the beautiful effect.
The power of this mix is also that you can create your perfect finish by adapting the quantities - a little less highlighter when more coverage is needed say at night; a little more for a low coverage day time look. It is also perfect for sheering out the foundation if you get a bit of colour from the sun.
Unfortunately, Skin Lights in no longer available but any liquid highlighter would fit the bill. Benefit High Beam, No 7 Skin Illuminator and Me Me ME Beat The Blues - I'm looking at you!
