Texture modification is changing the consistency of your product. There are many consistencies of makeup for both functional and personal purposes. Dry is a great texture for some applications, but it’s not ideal for stark lines or dense coverage. Liquids and creams are better for these.
We are working hard to bring you buildable modifiers that will achieve a variety of textures for performance applications such as full coverage and mascara, but until then we have a few highly effective, simple suggestions.
We call this one MVW (Modifying Vegetable Glycerin and Water).
2 parts Vegetable Glycerin to 1 part purified water
If this irritates your eye, dilute it to equal parts.
If your solution is at least half Vegetable Glycerin, and if it’s stored in a dropper bottle in a dry, cool location, the shelf life is 6+ months. If your solution is less than half Vegetable Glycerin, the shelf life is only a few days.
We call this MC (Modifying Creams). What’s great about this option is you can use the light lotions or creams you already know work for you. Mix with a finished MiXFits formula in a jar or pot or palette, or in the palm of your hand.
We suggest using a half loose scoop of MiXFits to a day’s serving of lotion or cream. You can dust or press dry MiXFits over the top of applied lotion while the lotion is still tacky.
Heavy lotions and creams, or those that do not absorb fully into the skin, are not advised for use with makeup. They remain on the surface and will migrate your makeup throughout the day.
If you mix your lotion and MiXFits in quantity, the shelf life is subject to the shelf life of the lotion. If the lotion does not have preservatives, the shelf life is only a few days.
Use MiXFits to adjust the colors of other brands. You can apply MiXFits directly over the top of most freshly applied convenience products, or mix them together in a pot, palette or your palm.
If you mix in quantity, the shelf life of this option is subject to that of the convenience product.
