OK Opinions please.....
Since getting my order Weds. I've used my foundation twice. The Buttery Gold is perfect...(thanks Jen) but I'm having issues with matching only because my neck is darker than my face. Here are two pics with my mixes. The first one in the black/white striped shirt is yesterday. That was 1:5 buttery gold to medium coverage ivory. It's also my first entirely silk naturals (other than black eyeliner and mascara) face day!
It looked pretty good inside, but outside was just a little darker on my face than my neck. So I went home and added another medium coverage ivory scoop for a 1:6 ratio. That's todays, in the gray shirt. My second all Silk Naturals except for black liner and mascara day! It's closer, but not quite there.
I was thinking of adding 1/2 scoop more of the buttery gold to the mix for a 1.5:6 ratio. Not sure though. Any suggestions? I want to keep things as simple as I can so that I can replicate it! TIA! Thia
I think the second one looks really good...the gray shirt. I don't think it is too light at all.
By adding the half scoop, you will actually make it darker than it was the first day. The final ratio of what you are planning to mix (the 1.5:6) simplifies out to be 1:4. If you think it needs to be somewhere between the two days, you are looking for a 1:5.5 ratio or in whole scoops that is 2:11.
