BEAUTY TIP - Mac Fix + Customised!

Do you want a glow and more moisture to your skin? Use this customised Fix + recipe..
I use this mixture to set my make up all the time..

Add a few drops of oil to it, this time I used Neals Yard rose hip seed oil, you can use whatever you want.. vitamin e, baby oil etc.
I also add a pinch of Mac Vanilla pigment..

SHAKE WELL BEFORE USE!

Enjoy!

Hello Bubblegarm,

I was looking for an alternative to mac fix + as i have really sensitive skin and break out easily, and i tried to make my own :) and added oils etc with some pigment-but found that it was lacking in something!

Could you possibly recommend anything else-or anything similar other than the mac fix + please? as nice as the fix + sounds my skin is bound to break out.

Thankyou! :)

Hi, i also forgot to ask; when you mix the oil in with your mac fix + does the mix not separate the oil from the water? as water and oil can't mix? If that makes sense!

Hi :)
Yeah the water an oil seperates that's why u have to shake well before use...
You could try just mineral water mixed with some oil and a pinch of vanilla pigment... Or you could even get the face mists from the body shop. I'm still testing the bodyshop stuff, I will probably bombard this blog with reviews very soon :)

Thanks :0)

(i don't trust the body shop skincare! :( ) -sorry to say, too many chemicals for me.

But i will try the mineral water one and maybe add some EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) with a touch of pigment.

I only use EVOO for my face as a cleanser, probably weird,but seriously everything else breaks me out. And e45 cream for my face as i'm that sensitive, sorry to waffle :P

I love your blog,, you are sooooo frekking beautiful marshallah-may Allah keep you happy, :) i would love to make a blog also-you're very inspiring you know. Please keep your tips coming..

Cool-no worries hun-you seem so grounded too!

Anyway; yes i will defo try the water spritz, can i also recommend EVOO and white sugar as a facial scrub, i use this every 2 days or so and my skin has transformed. You just add the EVOO with a 50p size of white sugar in your hand and very lightly massage all over your face for about 3-4 minutes, be careful as not to be so abrasive and wash with warm water then pat dry with a towel. I suffered from acne in the past and have been using this method for the last 2 years with great results (you have fantastic skin anyway), i have also recommended it to friends/cousins who have also recommended it to to others.
Try to keep skincare as natural as possible-where possible, thats my motto anyway.

Sorry for the longggg reply!

Jesse said...

Is that how you get your gorgeous glow you have in all your pictures? I need to try this! :)

sherona said...

I actually tries the mineral water, mixed with baby oil and pigment..
it really does give you a glow..
so yeah thanks for the tip!!

bubblegarm said...

@Jesse it helps :))) x

Tali said...

Lol.... i guess the cutie husband also adds to the glow hehe

I really want to try this out. I love my vanilla pigment!

Tali said...

ooo.. i do actually have a questtion. When I use my Bobbi B tinted moisturiser or any foundation like product... my bronzer always streaks a little.

How do you avoid this? Do you use any particular brush. I always use my Mac 'skunk' brush but I still get little streaks.

bubblegarm said...

@Tali - yes the hubby helps :)

Sometimes I get streaks too, the key is too use very little product at a time, but sometimes I pile it on by accident, in that instance I use a normal foundation brush - I have a clinique one - any one will do, and I just pat the areas that I need to blend. Hope this helps! x

bubblegarm said...

Tali I want to follow ur blog but I cant find the link :( it looks great :) thanks for the mention! x

tiffany said...

what a fab tip...ive wondered how ure skin glows but just assumed it was just your skin type! how do you apply fix..i think its the one mac product i dont fully understand lol xx

bubblegarm said...

I just close my eyes, hold the bottle about 20cm from my face, and do a few spritz! :)

Krystallia said...

Sounds nice but what is this mac fix?Havent heard about it before(excuse ne but i am quite new with mac):))

*SweetestSinSheroon* said...

@krystallia: An aqua-spritz of vitamin and minerals, infused with a calm-the-skin blend of green tea, chamomile, cucumber, topped off with the fresh, natural, energizing scent of Sugi. Adds radiance, finishes makeup. Spray it on. Skin drinks it up!

hope it helps.. I got this from the mac website

Make Up Crunch said...

I tried this with just the oil, mineral water and a Stargazer pigment and OMG what a difference! so far so good! (i.e. my skin is not telling me off yet). You need to come and live at my house to make me look pretty every day! It's only a 3 hour commute from Manchester ;-)
