|NYX Pro Foundation Mixer|
I love online shopping, but it can prove to be quite difficult especially when you're trying to buy foundation or anything that needs to match your skin tone . I know its recommended to swatch it in person before purchasing, however a lot of stores operate online such as Glossier, Cult Beauty and ASOS (they stock products which are online exclusive as well) which makes buying items (they do have a pop up shop in NY, but that doesn't count for anyone residing outside New York or overseas).
I've bought foundations in the past which turn out to be darker in person and a complete mismatch to my skin, and instead of binning it, I used to mix it with equally priced lighter foundations. Now this isn't something that would solve the problem for drugstore foundations as they do not offer the best shades for women who are too light or too dark, but NYX Pro Foundation Mixer has saved me from spending a lot of money when foundations are just wrong. It comes in a variety of shades named Opal, Luminous, White, Deep, Olive and Warmth which can be used to suitably adjust your foundation to the right shade, and can be perfect for when you're on holiday and your skin tone will adjust with the climate.
Buy it here for £7.50 (It was a lot cheaper when I first bought it last year)
Do you have any recommendations to adjust your foundation shade without splurging on another foundation?
