Hello Beautiful!

Have you ever bought a foundation at the advice of a friend, or an expert at a makeup counter and gotten home, and it is ALL WRONG? Maybe the color is off, or worse yet, the person advising you didn’t take the time to ask what you were looking for!!! If you answered yes, you need a custom blend foundation.

One day, a few years ago, I went looking for a new foundation. I walked into a store which had a LOT of foundation, thinking for sure I would find the right match and formula for my skin. I am very oily in spring/summer and very dry during fall/winter. You may be able to relate, knowing that you need different formulas, colors, etc… depending on what time of year it is. This Midwest weather is the pits for skin, not to mention the variances in color between summer and winter.

I just knew there had to be a better way. So… I took a class on custom blending and instantly fell in love. The flexibility is outrageous! The color ranges from the most alabaster to the darkest, richest mahogany. The ability to tone and adjust is really unprecedented!

Custom blend foundation_2Having the color perfect, (and I mean PERFECT) Is just one perk to custom blend foundation, but the flexibility with regards to the coverage, finish (matte, demi-matte, natural, dewy), opacity, and ability to fill in fine lines (YES, YOU READ THAT RIGHT….especially with regular use over time), add serums, etc.. is amazing! So whether your skin is oily, dry or a combination, this product can be completely tailored to suit your specific skin.

“I seriously love it! I am blown away by the color that actually MATCHES my skin….It lays on my skin so nicely and my face looks so put together everyday.” (Danica B.)

Here are some of my favorite pieces of the custom blend “puzzle”:

  • Oil Free
  • Paraben Free
  • Natural SPF of 6-8 (I have the ability to add more if you wish)
  • Non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores)
  • Botanical infused to smooth and soften skin
  • Natural, long wearing, shine free coverage

So that’s the base. Pretty cool, right? There is SO MUCH MORE!!!! Some of the amazing things I can do:
Primer My primer actually pumps fine lines, restores radiance for healthy glowing skin, primes skin giving a smooth and silky texture, helps the skin to retain moisture, and contains Vitamin E. Vitamin E is an antioxidant which helps prevent environmental stress. This is great for clients who complain about large pores, scars, blemishes, dry and scaly skin.

Serums: Serums are very luxurious, and expensive skin care additives which I include in my custom foundations. No extra cost!

5One of the serums I have is Botanical infused to reduce redness and inflammation due to Rosacea, improves circulation, and you’ll see a whopping 65% increase in the skin’s radiance.

A second serum I have functions as a hydrator. It not only adds hydration to the foundation, but it also reduces surface dehydration (as a side note, drink LOTS of water if you feel as though you’re dehydrated). This serum is water based and really helps clients who complain of being dry.

A third serum functions to control the oil without irritating the skin. It contains cucumber extract which serves to calm and sooth the skin. It is also water based and contains such amazing ingredients as lemongrass extract (antibacterial) and Horsetail Extract which eliminates oil and accelerates the healing process of the skin.

My foundation comes in a beautiful, rich 40 ml glass pump bottle for $45 plus tax. There is no extra charge for the consultation, and shipping is an additional fee.
