I finally got the color right with my foundation! I don’t plan on wearing it straight, but I did whip up some liquid foundation using the lightest coverage airbrushing powder, and I love that stuff!
It took me quite a while to get the color right, too much of this, not enough of that, etc. Finally, I was almost there, but something was missing. I added a couple specks of blue ultramarine, and I got it! That was quite suprising, as I’m not very dark skinned at all. I guess I just have an olive-y/cool undertone! I started with the Marie blend and went up quite a bit from there. In the end, this was my final blend:
Yellow Iron Oxide- 3/8 + 7/64 tsp
Red Iron Oxide- 1/16 + 1/32 tsp
Brown Iron Oxide- 3/64 tsp
Blue Ultramarine- A few specks
Titanium Dioxide- 1 + 3/8 tsp
