Can you suggest a few Foundation Mixing Ratios?

Post by JRhapsodic » Wed Sep 12, 2018 11:31 pm

Hi There!

I am very close to the G30 & G20 shades of the HD Cream Foundation Sticks - I am just a tad bit Yellower and less Orange. (I have always had a very difficult time finding yellow enough shades devoid of orange or pink tones). Currently I have mixed a 6:1 ratio using the Medium coverage Ivory and the Buttery Gold as my base. This is still a bit too pinky orange on me. So I ordered the yellow corrector and should be receiving it in a few days- Can you suggest a ratio for me to try including the yellow corrector? I was thinking 6 Ivory, 1/2 Buttery Gold and 1/2 Yellow Corrector - Does that sound right? Thank You So Much 🙏🏻!
