What do you think about ’em? I’ve been on a kick lately (MAC Lightful C has been my bae for a week or so), but ya know…sometimes a girl needs/wants a little more coverage, and sometimes (well, all the time) that same girl is also in a hurry. 🙂
And that’s how I figured out this makeup tip.
Basically, instead of applying a BB cream (or tinted moisturizer) first, and then applying a concealer on top of it, you can save a little time by blending a bit of your favorite concealer into your BB cream to create a magical brew.
Mixing the two together increases the opacity of the BB cream, which gives you more coverage.
I’ve been mixing MAC Lightful C in Medium Plus with a smidgen of MAC Select Cover-Up Concealer in NC42. Then I buff MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural on top, and then spray a little MAC Fix+ all over my face.
The result is medium coverage with a natural-looking semi-matte finish. It’s what I’ve been wearing in my pics lately. 🙂
If you wanted to, I bet you could also bump up the coverage even more by playing with the ratio of Select Cover-Up to Lightful C.
If you decide to give this a whirl with different products, try mixing things with similar formulas and consistencies, like creams with creams, liquids with liquids, etc. I usually have better luck when I do that, and it’s why I blend MAC Select Color-Up with MAC Lightful C, because they both have similar consistencies and blend pretty well together.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Sittin’ here on my couch feeling stuffed to the gills. El Hub and I just got back from a yummy anniversary dinner. As of today, we’ve been married nine years, and I still haven’t killed him in his sleep yet. 🙂
