Mixing All of My Foundations Together

Has anyone else been watching the videos on YouTube in which people mix all of their products together? No, it's just me?

I've seen this done with foundations, eyeshadows, liquid lipsticks, highlighters, etc. and the idea is that if you combine all of your products you will get something with the perfect shade, coverage, and consistency for your personal tastes. I believe the idea came from Safiya Nygaard's videos so all credit to her for this post!

I decided to mix together all of my foundations because it seems like everyday I already mix my foundations. If I'm trying to get use out of a matte foundation, I like to mix in a bit of a dewy foundation, if I have a darker foundation I mix in a white lightener, etc. I'm really curious what the outcome would be if I mix together all of my foundations, whether they are light or dark, dewy or matte, neutral or yellow-toned.

All of the foundations that I own are:

Elf Flawless Finish
Touch in Sol Advanced Real Moisture
The Ordinary Coverage
The Ordinary Serum
Too Faced Born This Way
Wet n Wild Photofocus (in two shades)
Tarte Rainforest of the Sea
Purlisse BB Cream
LA Girl Pro Coverage
No. 7 Match Made
L'Oreal Pro Glow
LA Girl Pro Coverage white mixer

I added all of these foundations to an empty case that I have and mixed them together with some tweezers.

I added: 7 neutral foundations, four with a yellow undertone, one with a pink undertone, and one white mixer.

3 had a light coverage, 7 had medium coverage, and three had a high coverage.

5 had a dewy/luminous finish, 4 had a satin finish, and 4 had a matte finish.

Overall, I was expecting a foundation with a neutral undertone, a medium coverage, and a satin finish, and that is almost exactly what I got.

The mixed foundation was almost a perfect match for my skin. It is a hair too dark, but at the moment I am the palest I ever get so I expect to be too light for most of my foundations. It was more yellow-toned than neutral, which is fine as I have a yellow undertone anyway. It had a medium coverage but I used a lot more foundation than I usually would to get medium coverage. I think it had more of a luminous finish than a satin or matte one. Overall, I like the mixed foundation a lot but I hate the scent. You would think combining all of my foundations would weaken the scent of the Wet n' Wild Photofocus, but sadly my mixed foundation still smells like paint.

I probably only have one or two uses left of my mixed foundation but I will definitely use it up! It was a fun experiment but I don't think I would do it again. If I want a foundation with a medium coverage that matches me I can reach for one of the 7 in my collection that does the same thing.

What do you think of this experiment? Have you heard of it before this post?

  1. I haven't heard of this craze before! I know people like to mix two or so foundations if the colour is wrong, or something! Surely it would take so long to mix all the foundations you own together, for an everyday look!?

  2. I seen this craze on youtube and am so interested in it, I think I might attempt this too.

    I would also like to let you know that I have tagged you in The Myster Blogger Award, Hope you have as much fun as I did writing it.

  3. I haven't heard of such a thing before. What an interesting and fun experiment!

  4. What a fun idea! For a moment there, I held my breath because I thought you were going to mix your entire foundation collection together. Obviously not, you are not a crazy person, lol xx

  5. Never saw this before!

    Question for you!! I've been wanting to try the Tarte Rainforest of The Sea! How do you like it??

    Also follow you on Bloglovin - happy I found your blog :)


    1. I like it, especially in the summer! It's a semi-matte finish so it's probably better for normal/oily skin, but feels really light and has medium coverage. Thank you so much for reading! :)

  6. Yeah it's so weird that when you mix things like foundation together that it can smell like paint isn't it? I always find it so off putting! This is a really cool idea though.

  7. Yeah, I watched a couple of videos on this idea but I never thought of doing this myself.You have so many foundations, I need to try more!

  8. I've seen the thumbnails but never checked out any of the videos on Youtube. I've stayed away from the Wet N Wild foundation because of the smell. Great post!

  10. I always try to play it safe with my foundations, I never like the idea of mixing them! Though this does look like an interesting experiment!

  11. Sounds like a fun idea but not sure if I'll ever do it. I very rarely mix my foundations and if I do it's usually with a serum or an oil.

  12. It's an interesting idea! I often mix one or two but can't imagine mixing them all, as it seems like a bit of a waste of product to do all the time.

  15. I've seen people do this, but I was never actually interested enough to try. I think they usually just ruin the powder products or waste liquids. However, it can turn out OK if you get something wearable, like you did. I'm not taking that risk haha

  16. Happiness is all i see now I never thought that I will be cured from HERPES virus again. I have been suffering from a deadly disease (HERPES) for the past 3 years now, I had spent a lot of money going from one places to another, from churches to churches, hospitals have been my home every day residence. Constant checks up have been my hobby not until this faithful day, I was searching through the internet, I saw a testimony on how Dr Ogudugu helped someone in curing his HERPES disease, quickly I copied his email which is greatogudugu@gmail.com just to give him a test I spoke to him, he asked me to do some certain things which I did, he told me that he is going to provide the herbal cure to me, which he did, then he asked me to go for medical checkup after some days after using the herbal cure, behold I was free from the deadly disease, he only asked me to post the testimony through the whole world, faithfully am doing it now, please brothers and sisters, he is great, I owe him in return. If you are having a similar problem just email him on ( greatogudugu@gmail.com ) or you can whatsApp his mobile number on +27663492930
