Stretch Liquid Makeup With Mineral Oil

I had a small amount of (Cover Girl) liquid makeup in a shade I wanted to use up. I poured into the bottle a small amount of mineral oil, shook it vigorously and that made just enough for one use. I believe you could use extra virgin olive oil if you didn't have the mineral oil.

What an excellent concept, but PLEASE don't use Mineral Oil unless you want LOTS of EXTRA-large pores sooner than later!

Although it might be the least smelly, I'd use Canola or Grapeseed oil with a few drops of alcohol to "preserve it"? Be VERY careful when adding so you don't over-do it. This won't work well for those with oily skin, of course, but another option is this which will likely be healthy:

Take a small amt. of coconut "oil", which starts slightly solid, like Crisco, but melts so quickly that you have to hurry and spread it all over your clean face with VERY clean hands EVERY time.


(Keep your hands off your face once makeup is applied. ) Let it soak in a few minutes, then use a paper towel to blot any residue before applying your liquid makeup.

Each brand has a different formula, which may/may not bond with whatever is added to it! If too much is used, it might remove the makeup instead. If too little, it will only moisturize and stretch your makeup a little. So, obviously, it will be a trial and error for each person who plans to try this and could become expensive until you figure out your best formula.

God bless and help you. : )

If you have oily skin, you can try a little water, or witch hazel. But it won't keep that way for long term use, as it will separate.
