Ever order the wrong shade of foundation and are not sure what to do with it? This happens all the time! The solution to this tricky issue is simple- mix it up!

Say you bought a foundation that is two shades darker for your complexion and will go to waste, just order a foundation that’s two shades lighter for your complexion. All you have to do is take those two products and mix them together to get the perfect color. If at first your mixture is too light, then add more of the darker foundation, and vice versa. This will not only help you get use out of something that may have gone to waste, but it also will keep that bottle of foundation lasting longer than it would have.

When dealing with Minerals, have the same idea in mind of mixing two foundations to achieve the perfect color. I always recommend our Personal Blend Foundation because it comes with four different shades of foundations that is PERFECT for mixing! Just tap some product into the cap, mix it with your brush, and apply!

If you don’t feel like ordering another product, try using your ‘too light’ foundation as a highlighter. Use your ‘too dark’ foundation as a bronzer or mix it with some moisturizer to get a soft glow!

What do YOU guys do with your ‘too dark’ or ‘too light’ foundations?
