My Custom Blend Foundation Recipe



Hey beautiful people! A few weeks back I did a blog post describing the ingredients in my Mother’s custom blend foundation recipe. Well, today I ran out of my own, so I quick whipped up some more. Having that ability is pretty handy! Below you can see some of the things I used 🙂



Here’s a run down of what I all blend together:

—> 10 ml Beauty Balm Cream. AKA Beauty Balm makes your foundation’s coverage more sheer.

—> 2 pumps Pearl Toner. This makes a dewy finish vs. matte or natural.

—> 20 ml Beige (oil-free) Base. I use this since I’m a lighter medium skin tone.

—> 3 pumps White Toner

—> 1 pump Yellow Toner

—> 1 pump Blue Toner. These toner colors just even things out to perfect your foundations match to your skin. (It’s best to see the results in natural light)

—> 1.0 ml Hydrator Modifier. I have slightly dry skin, not so much in the summer, but I just like to add Hydrator regardless for those dry areas around my nose/chin.

—> 1 pump Fringe Benefit. This is a great primer for dry/balanced skin.

—> 1 smidgen Sunlight Gold Luminescence Powder. This gives just a hint of gold shimmer which looks really pretty in summer! It can also be great if you’re missing that glow in the winter months too. (below)

—> Lastly I added 3 drops Whipping Créme Modifier. This makes the makeup light and fluffy. I’m obsessed with how this textures the makeup & it goes on so silky!


In addition to making liquid blends, I also love doing powder blends as well. There are a ton of fun colors to play with to also make eye shadows, lip stains, bronzers, blushes, you name it! If you live in my area, I’ll be doing a fun custom blend event at the end of April and would love to see you there 🙂


Thanks so much for reading! xoxoxo Laura
