As most of us already know the world of foundation is changing. It was just about two years ago when Cover FX introduced their Cover Drops and the beauty collective was all over it. Finally, there was a way to customize your coverage and incorporate it into your everyday skincare routine. Now, with Clinique’s BIY™ Blend-It-Yourself Pigment Drops we now have a blendable pigment drop that mixes well with your favorite moisturizer for customizable coverage AND finish. For instance, if you’re more of a tinted moisturizer or BB cream type of gal then mixing one drop of the BIY pigment drops along with your moisturizer will give you the sheer coverage you want. Add a second drop of BIY and you’ll get more of a medium coverage. Add one more drop for fuller coverage.
These days we have moisturizers that are not only formulated to aid in perfecting skin but perfecting skin under makeup acting as both moisturizers and primers. So, if the radiant look is what you like then using your preference of drops along with a moisturizer gives you a radiant glow. Here are some examples of some pairings – don’t forget to use SPF if your moisturizer of choice does not already contain SPF of at least 30.
Sheer coverage – 1 drop
Medium coverage – 2 drops
Fuller coverage – 3 drops
For matte finish:
Clinique Pep-Start™ HydroBlur Moisturizer
For natural/satin finish:
Murad Anti-Aging Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 / PA+++
For radiant finish:
Glamglow GLOWSTARTER™ Mega Illuminating Moisturizer
I’ve tried all three suggestions and for me the best finish was the matte finish. I went for medium coverage and used my Glossier stretch concealer in areas where I needed just a little more coverage.
If you’ve tried Clinique BIY Pigment drops, let me know how you feel about it. You know where to find me. Until next time, always remember to SEE. TOUCH. TASTE.
