Base Mixing

In my recent base haul I spoke about my winter skin and urgent need for a better matching foundation. I ended up opting for a super light shade of Rimmel's Match Perfection to mix in with all my other foundations to create a much more winter friendly hue. I'm not usually a huge base mixer,  it never really appealed to me but recently, with this combo under my belt, I'm a base mixing convert.

Esteé Lauder's Double Wear paired with Rimmel's Match Perfection has been my go-to base pairing for the past week or so. The combination of colours (Ecru from EL and Light Porcelain from Rimmel) is perfect for my pale skin and the finish is beautiful- slightly dewy from the Match Perfection but kept under control by the Double Wear. I mix a blob of the EL with a tiny pump of Match Perfection on the back of my hand with Daniel Sandler's Base Brush then apply as normal. 

I feel like with this pair I really get the best of both foundations; the long-lasting, heavy coverage from EL and the dewy, natural finish from MP. I'm definitely tempted to mix up some of the other foundations in my collection. 

What's your favourite combination?

*Heads up Aussie girls, Priceline currently has 50% of Rimmel!* 



  1. I mix Collection naturally Matt foundation and MAC studio fix fluid because I can't find any foundation in my colour :( x
