Makeup problem!!

Hello !! 
I am reaching out to the beauty community because I have have some trouble in my base makeup all of a sudden. 
So I prep my skin as one does and I apply my primer and blend out my base and after I have gotten all my base on my makeup starts to clump up in oil and separates!


this has never happened before  so just looking for some advice from the pros !! 

Re: Makeup problem!!


Agree with what others are saying. The issue is most likely related to one (or a combination of) the following -


Incompatible products (including application tools)

A change to your skin (seasonal, hormonal, age-related, etc)

Expired products, or products whose integrity has been lost  (e.g. dried out, "cooked", exposed to too much humidity, etc)

Not allowing enough "dry-down" time between adding product/rushing application


Re: Makeup problem!!

This was very helpful thank you so so much I will keep that in mind especially the dry down time !

Re: Makeup problem!!

@Aiyana2104  Are any of your items old?  Has your skin changed in any way?  Mine got dryer as I got older so I had to find a different brand of foundation.  

Re: Makeup problem!!

Items are brand new just refreshed them before Christmas and checked the packing time 

Re: Makeup problem!!

@Aiyana2104 @Did you change anything with your skincare?
