The Best Makeup Tip I Ever Got



Out of all the makeup tricks on the internet ... this is by far my favorite.

I'm not going to claim ownership to this idea, I actually saw it on Youtube while researching foundation reviews. I cam across this video by WayneGoss. I watched it with interest, but in the end, I was convinced this was just some gimmick. Basically, Wayne says to mix your foundation with some oil and then apply the mixture as you would normally. 

What? Oil + foundation? But surely that would make a greasy, oily mess!


Well, it doesn't. Instead, the oil and foundation make an incredibly flawless finish, give you that glowing from within look and stay on your face looking perfect for much, much longer. The first time I tried this trick (months after seeing the video), I fell in love. It really is that good.

It will work with any foundation and a liquid oil, but I've been using it with Maybelline Better Skin and the AlpStories Argan Oil. For 1 and a half pump of foundation, I use 1 pump of oil and it's the perfect amount.

Another thing, I have oily, problematic skin, and I have no issues using my foundation this way. Instead, my skin feels nourished even when I'm wearing makeup. Amazing!

And here is some info on the oil I've been using ...

  1. It's cold process oil, which means there's no heat used in the process. 
  2. Not tested on animals, appropriate for vegans.
  3. No parabens, mineral oil, synthethic fragrances, silicones or artificial colorants.
  4. Rich in Vitamin E, essential fatty acids and proteins.
  5. Helps with fading scars and discoloration, can be used for stretch marks, gives back elasticity.
This is a really great oil and such a multi-purpose product. I'd love to make another post and tell you about all the ways you can use it - but this tip is something you must try for yourself. You will love it!
What is your top makeup tip?

  2. I hadn't heard this tip before now, but am really eager to try it! I wonder if it would work with a concealer that is a little to heavy for the eye area also?! xx

  5. I saw that Wayne Goss video and immediately dismissed the idea because of my oily skin, so it's interesting to hear it worked so well for you. I might give it a try!

  9. Oh wow, that's really interesting! I want to try it right away. I think I'd rather try it with argan oil to start (it's a comfortable oil) rather than a healing oil (Tamanu/Rosehip). Can't wait to see how it looks!

    1. Dragi 'anonimko' ...
      1. Hvala za prvi grd komentar na mojem blogu, sem že mislila, da je z mano kaj narobe. :)
      2. Poglej si moje disappointing products objave, je ogromno izdelkov, ki mi sploh ne ustrezajo in jih združim v teh postih.
      3. Ne mislim, da sem vredna več od drugih, če pa so tega mnenja PR-ji, ne morem pomagat. ;)
      4. Rože in podlaga so nekako moj signature, zdi se mi, da so nemoteče, če ti gredo pa v nos (imaš alergijo na cvetni prah, revica?) pa hitro stran, ti nočem škodit!
      P.S. Vem, kdo si. :)

    2. Pisem pod anonimno ... Replika na komentar prve anonimne osebe, a zdej so dobre fotke al kr neki fotke, odloči se. Drugače pa top blog, lp, katja

  16. Jaz sem tudi gledala ta video in probala z nekim oljem, ki ni nekako delovalo. Bom morala še s tem arganovim sprobat. Res super olje, jaz ga večinoma uporabljam na obrazu zvečer. Sem pa ravno preizkusila tudi na telesu:)

  17. This is super intriguing. I'm definitely going to look into this a bit more and give it a whirl. I'm always mixing my foundation with the L'Oreal Lumi Primer as it gives a really nice, dewy finish to the skin. An oil would be a cheaper alternative though I assume. Thanks for sharing x

  18. This is intriguing - would have never thought to mix a face oil with my foundation! I think I really do need to give it a go after reading about your experience. Probably going to check out the original Wayne Goss video soon :) Thanks for sharing!

  19. I think I may have to try this as well, did the oil change the color of your foundation at all?

  20. Super nasvet, morem poskusiti. :) Sicer gledam ogromno posnetkov na YouTubo od Wayna, ampak tega pa res nisem zasledila. :)
    Super blog imaš, tvoje fotke so tako lepe. :) <3
