So I Tried Wayne Goss' Foundation + Facial Oil Trick

Wednesday, April 1, 2015

Back in January, Wayne Goss posted a YouTube video featuring a trick he learned from Scott Barnes: mixing one drop of non-fragrant oil (like jojoba, avocado or argan) with a liquid or cream foundation results in the most beautiful, radiant skin-like finish on the face. Keep reading if you want to know what I think of his trick on my combination skin!

Here's a super close-up of my skin with liquid foundation mixed with one drop of argan oil. This really does make me look JLo glowy! It definitely looks like it's my real skin. It's so luminous on my skin, which is a nice change from my preferred matte finish. The only thing is that because I have combination skin, this technique cuts down on foundation wear time on my t-zone, so it's not the greatest for extra hot or long days. But for winter days or nights where I'll just be out for a few hours, I'll definitely be doing trick!
