Mixology is coming to makeup - here's what you need to know
We just love a customised product made especially for us! That’s why makeup mixology is becoming more common in the beauty world. What began as convenient, multipurpose makeup is evolving into the ultimate artistic hobby, with makeup fans creating their own signature cocktails. This mixing is intended to alter finish and texture, create custom colours, and to enhance the qualities of one product by using another. Here are some of the best makeup mixing combos to keep in mind if you’re ready to give it a go.  

Urban Decay Drop Shot Mix-In Facial Oil + Urban Decay Naked Skin Liquid Makeup

Add the facial oil to your foundation to get the best of both skincare and beauty. The facial oil formula is made from nourishing oils that can be added to the Liquid Makeup foundation, to condition the skin and make foundation easier to smooth and blend. The oil also gives skin a healthy glow once dried and absorbed into the skin without leaving any residue behind. 

Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Custom Highlighting Drops + Lancôme Teint Idole Long Wear Foundation

The Highlighting Drops come in four skin tone shades and can be mixed into the Long Wear Foundation for a full-face, dewy glow. Use an empty palette crate or the back of your hand for the mixing. Just squeeze a few drops of the custom highlighter over the foundation and mix with a makeup brush.

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick + Urban Decay Vice Special Effects Lip Topcoat

 The Special Effects Top Coat creates a customised lipstick to change up and enhance the Vice Lipstick. Use the Top Coat to change the colour of the lipstick for a fierce multi-gradient lip ombre. Or you could use it to change the texture of your Vice Lipstick from matte to metallic when transitioning from a day to a night look. 

NYX Professional Multitasker Mixing Medium + NYX Professional Makeup Loose Pearl Eyeshadow

 If Loose Eyeshadow struggles to settle on your eyelids and smudges to other parts of the face, the translucent mixing gel will control the texture to keep your favourite smoky eye perfectly in place. Use your finger to swipe the mixing gel over your eyelid before applying the Pearl Eyeshadow. 

It’s not just for fun, makeup mixology can revolutionise the way you apply your makeup from here on out. It adds qualities to your favourite products and takes your makeup skills to the next level. What’s left is a makeup look that’s customised to suit you. Happy mixing!
