Confession: I never, ever wear foundation. Every time I give it a shot (strictly for special occasions), I wind up immediately regretting the decision and taking it off. No matter how many formulas I experiment with, I’m convinced that foundation just isn’t for me.

I can’t be the only one.

If you’re like me and hate wearing foundation, I have good news! After years of trial and error, I’ve finally found the perfect product and figured out a way to use it that evens out my skin while enhancing my natural complexion—no foundation needed.

What I Use

The magical substance? Meet Cover FX Custom Cover Drops. Mix these highly concentrated drops with your favorite liquid skincare product (think: moisturizer, facial oil, or primer) to create your own personalized DIY foundation. Every time you apply it, you can adjust it to meet your needs. For light-medium coverage, use 1-2 drops or to up the ante with full-coverage, try using 3-4 drops. For a matte finish, mix with a matte primer. For a dewy finish, try mixing it with a facial oil. The possibilities are endless!

How I Wear It

I use the back of my hand to mix a rich moisturizer and 1-2 Custom Cover Drops for a healthy, hydrated look and feel. And, if there’s ever a rare day that I want a full-coverage look, 3 drops will do the trick. I spread the low-maintenance mixture on with my fingers, but you can also use a brush or sponge for a more precise application. It melts into skin, looks 100% natural and stays put all day. Easy enough, right?

Turn these drops into whatever you need, and take control of your coverage.
