Layering water-based products with other products?

Hey! I'm looking at the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea collection, because I really want a more natural-radiant finish that isn't super full coverage. My only concern is -- given that the product has a water base, how does it fair with layering other products? Will I encounter problems trying to layer creamy contour shades, for example?

Re: Layering water-based products with other products?

Layering order usually goes from lightest to heaviest ๐Ÿ™‚ water-based products usually go first, and anything can be layered over water-based products without a problem. If you're trying to apply a water-based product over an oil-based product, it might have trouble staying on your face since water & oil don't mix (unless the oil is a dry oil and sinks into the skin quickly). You can layer water-based products on other water-based or silicone based ones. Good luck! ^^ 

Re: Layering water-based products with other products?

I don't know about this Tarte foundation specifically, but I wore a water-based foundation for ~2 years (MUFE water blend BEFORE it was called the Water Blend) and never had issues applying anything on top. Your skin will absorb the water, so it's not like there's a thin layer of water just hanging out on your skin ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: Layering water-based products with other products?

Ah great, thanks! The skin absorbing the water definitely makes sense. Do you think there would be a problem if I put the contour shade *under* the foundation, though (like for a subtler look)?

 

Thanks!

Re: Layering water-based products with other products?

I don't contour, so I can't really answer your question. I've watched videos of people contouring underneath foundation and don't quite get it... it simply gets blended out and looks like nothing at all! Could you just use a lighter hand/blend better if contouring after foundation?

Re: Layering water-based products with other products?

I kind of like the blurred look so that it isn't obvious I contoured. I don't want to look like a Kardashian or anything xD ahahah but thanks anyway!
