Q: Is it possible to use oil-based skincare without looking too oily after makeup application?
A: Of course! Just make sure to use an oil that suits your skin type. Some of the Odacité Serums are universal and are a perfect base for your makeup. An oil-based serum can help your makeup stay longer, enhance a glowy / dewy finish and can prevent your foundation from appearing dry and cakey on the skin.
The All-Embracing Serum is one of the magic skincare bases that helps enhance your effortless glow, even underneath makeup. It’s lightweight and suits all skin types.
Apply it on damp skin, after misting with Rose + Neroli Hydra-Vitalizing Treatment Mist for example, as this will allow the Serum to penetrate quicker. Give it around 3 minutes to be fully absorbed and then apply your foundation in dots, mainly in the area where you need coverage. Leave the skin bare where you have achieved a natural glow from the All-Embracing Serum (high cheekbones, forehead, bridge of the nose). Lastly, with a sponge or brush, spread the foundation for an even finish. You will be pretty impressed with the results: dewy and radiant skin that appears even toned and fresh!
Q: My foundation looks cakey and flaky. Is there something I can do to prevent this?
A: Before throwing your foundation in the bin, give it one last chance. It might be that your skin is dehydrated and pigments don’t sit on the skin properly. For this concern, you can slightly manipulate the texture of your foundation to bring it to another level. The Gt+L Radiance Effect Serum Concentrate is my favorite for doing this. From beginning to end, this is what I recommend: The preparation of your skin will be a game changer, so apply 3 drops of the All-Embracing Serum to your palms and massage into your skin, focusing on the areas where you feel especially dry. Now add your foundation to the palm of your hand along with just one drop of Gt+L Radiance Serum Concentrate. Blend it all together and apply your upgraded foundation/serum mixture in small “dots” where coverage is needed. Next, take a damp sponge and blend the small “dots” onto your skin, be gentle and use a “dab” gesture for an all-over even finish. Final tip: spritz the Rose + Neroli Hydra-Vitalizing Treatment Mist on your skin to lock in hydration and also to act as a finishing/setting spray for your makeup.
What do you think? Good thing you didn’t throw away your foundation, right?!
