Transform your foundation routine, literally

There are so many things we won’t settle for in life (finding the perfect partner, landing your dream job….) so why do we continue to settle for foundations that are not perfect? Settle no more, because Catrice is now offering 2 new Makeup Transformer Drops in their Prime and Fine Line. A highly pigmented liquid distributed through a super fine tip, the Lightening and Darkening drops allow you to personalize ANY foundation. Plus, they’re vegan!

To create your very own perfect foundation (finally), follow these steps:

Step 1:

Test the color of your foundation. Just apply it to your jawbone and neck, which in my experience are the best areas for seeing whether the color of a foundation is a match. After applying, check to see if the shade is too light or too dark for your skin tone.

Step 2:

Customize the color. Place a few pumps, or drops, of the foundation on the back of your hand. If it is too dark, add the Prime and Fine Transformer Drops in the shade Lightening. If the foundation is too light, add the Darkening drops. Make sure you add the Transformer Drops drop by drop, and mix well. Remember, a little bit goes a long way, so you shouldn’t need more than 2-3 drops.

Step 3:

Apply with a brush, starting from the center and blending out from there. I like Catrice’s Multitalent Brush because it’s slanted shape and shorter bristles give maximum control around tricky areas like the nose and eyes.

Step 4:

Set with a loose, translucent powder like the Catrice Nude Illusion Loose Powder.

If you’ve already found the perfect foundation (lucky!), the Transformer Drops may still be for you. In fact, they are a great way to contour and highlight, shimmer-free. Check it out:

To contour, first pop a few Darkening drops onto the back of your hand. Then use a tool like the Makeup Blending Sponge to apply the product under your cheekbones and blend into your temples.

To highlight, add, drop by drop, some of the Lightening product to the back of your hand. Then use the Makeup Blending Sponge to tap and blend the transformer drops onto your cheekbones for a natural-looking highlight.
