Making Medium Coverage Into Full Coverage Foundation

Urban Decay the velvetizer Translucent Mix- in Medium

ud

They suggests that you mix liquid foundation with loose powder to make full coverage foundation.

I thought of trying this technique with the foundation and powder I have to see if could work with any foundation and powder, and it did.
The method to do this is:-

Mix two drops of liquid mix with little powder. Mix it well and smooth like one. Apply it on your face with sponge or brush.
I tried this method and applied it and was out the whole day and most of the time under the sun.
When i came back home in the evening, the foundation was intact and my experiment was a success.

Everyone skin needs fluid and oils in their skin which means women of oily skin can still be both dehydrated and lacking oil where your skin need it without applying moisturizer, you can actually make matter worse.

For best result, use moisturizer in morning and night after toner (or serum) if you are using as I mentioned in my post before.
