Hola there. I have been wanting to do some ‘beauty, skincare routine, tips & tricks’ for a while now. This is going to be the first post of many more to come. I hope this serves useful to you in someway. If you have anything specific to know about, also please to let me know in the comment section below. And i’ll find a way to squeeze in here. If you already have been using this foundation, you can skip directly to the ‘TRICK’ part. Enjoy your read!
Like most, i was also fascinated by the ‘Kat Von D lock it foundation’. This can literally cover tattoos, how cool is that? It would serve great for people suffering from skin related scars, acne even vitiligo and more. Not that they need to cover, everybody are beautiful along with their perfect imperfections :star: <3 but for some people who would like to have that option, this would be a great product.
This creamy foundation comes in 30 shades and is of vegan formula. It promises 24 hour stay, transfer-resistant, oil-free, alcohol-free, fade-proof and water resistant. It is matte finish and full-coverage foundation, would be great for oily and combination skin. This is no new product, it has been in the market for 6 years now.
I got my foundation a while back, i used it during family events for my own engagement makeup. It looked great on camera and photos. But i had to be very careful, on how i apply this. I used to take just half a pump, apply and blend quickly. Applying this heavy makes it cake-y and not flattering at all. Due to the amount of work i had to put in, to make this work, i kinda stopped using it for a while. But making this product to go waste was not my intention either. I had been researching the internet to try and find a workaround for this, but it was not successful. A while back i started playing with this foundation again and i found a life-changing trick that saved my foundation from going to the trash!
The trick is to simply liquify the consistency. Liquid foundations are very easy to apply and blend. Because of the full coverage nature and thick consistency , it makes the foundation go cake-y. So to balance it, i used the ‘Cover-FX custom infusion oil drops’ for this. Don’t get scared to use oil, this foundation is oil based and can only be liquified by oils and not water. If you have oily-combo skin don’t worry, as I too have combination skin and this did not make it any worse. You can hardly see the oily effect instead you get a dewy – glowy finish. I also recommend setting it with a setting powder powder afterwards.
So this is what you do, you take one pump of the foundation on the back of your hand. Add in 2 drops of any oil based product. Could be a facial oil like argan oil or skincare product like oil based serum etc. Mix them up with your finger. Apply and bend it out with a damp beauty blender. This gives a flawless sheered out but still a medium-full coverage. For places i need more coverage , i take some more foundation at the back of my hand, this time i directly use it over acne or redness with a light hand and it get’s covered flawlessly.
Sorry about the not-so-sexy pictures 🙄 , but this is to show what kind of finish you would end up with. This trick made me fall in love all over again with this foundation. Haven’t tried out this foundation yet? You could get your own here.
Try this and let me know if it worked for you? How do make it work for you? Also let me know, would love to hear from you <3 =^-^= .
Stay happy, stay blessed, be kind!
