The best beauty oils to mix with foundation

As the weather gets a little warmer, many of us switch out our favourite high coverage foundation for a lightweight, more sheer complexion product. Dewy, radiant skin looks beautiful in the summer and the heavy, flawless foundations we opt for in the winter months simply don’t give us the finish we’re looking for.

Rather than investing in a new foundation, one which adds glow and radiance to your skin, this summer we have decided to give our favourite foundation a refresh with beauty oils. By mixing our foundation with an oil, your favourite full coverage foundation is transformed into a glow-boosting base product which looks fresh and radiant on the skin.

Simply take a pump of your normal foundation with a drop or two of oil to magically transform your foundation. Using a beauty oil gives you complete control over your foundation as the sheerness and luminosity of your base depends on how many drops of oil you add meaning you can completely customise your glow.

While dry, dehydrated skin types can benefit from a couple of drops of oil, slightly more oily, acne-prone complexions would only need one drop to sheer out and add just the right amount of glow to their foundation.
