Step 1

Put 2 tablespoons of cornstarch in your bowl, add a tablespoon of vaseline and a tiny squirt or pinch of foundation (this goes a long way).

Using the popsicle stick mix all the ingredients until fully incorporated and smooth. Make a ball with the wax, if it’s too sticky, add more cornstarch. On the other hand, if the putty is too dry and is crumbling off, just add a bit more vaseline.

Step 2

Put a dab of wax on your hand and decide if the color is close (doesn’t have to be a perfect match). Add more foundation if needed. So other types of makeup can be added slowly to achieve other colors (I used my wife’s left over eyeshadow to darken my wax).
