I just got around to reading the May issue of People StyleWatch (I usually wait until I have time to devour it all in one sitting) and I saw an interesting beauty tip from Thandie Newton. It seems she has trouble finding a good foundation color for her skin tone, too.
Thandie told People StyleWatch: “I tap turmeric grains into my tinted moisturizer, foundation and bronzer to match the yellow undertones in my skin.”
How’s that for creativity? I usually mix my makeup with other beauty products—I would have never thought to add a spice to adjust the color. In addition to being genius, her tip reminds me that it’s not just brown-skinned women who have trouble finding makeup that matches. People with very yellow undertones or super-fair skin struggle a lot as well. And even if you have face makeup that works for you, sometimes it’s nice to combine it with other things just to get a different texture. Like adding liquid bronzer to foundation for a glow or blending foundation with moisturizer to make it more sheer.
