The foundation tip dry skinned people need to know

Every now and again I come across a tip that's a total game changer. This one from Wayne Goss is one such tip. It's so simple and yet so wonderful. 

The video is here, however if you can't be bothered watching here's a summary.

Apply a drop or two of oil to your foundation before you apply. It makes your foundation apply flawlessly and look amazing. It stops the foundation settling in to fine lines and also works wonderfully when used with concealer. 

Wayne suggests using three or four drops, I find that one drop is enough for my slightly dry skin. Experiment with what works for you, if you have drier skin than mine you might need to use more oil. 

I've been using rosehip oil, jojoba works just as well. I just put a drop of oil onto my beauty blender, put the foundation on top of it and off I go. Magic. 

It's important to know that this does not work with water based foundations. I tried it with Too Faced Born This Way and ended up with a flakey mess. 

Give it a go and let me know what you think!
