Mixing foundation FAIL!

Hello , hello.
So today something diffrent.
A BIG FAIL!
So I think I should share my up and downs with fashion and make up so here we go with a big fail.
I wrote about bunch of foundations I own HERE and told you I will try them out and write you reviews.
I decided to give a go to this Rimmel Long Lasting one in SOFT BEIGE.
I always go for ivory , so why do I have soft beige? Do not ask.
I swatched it on my hand and deary me it is not my color. I straightaway thought Hey it is an amazing idea to mix it with something lighter! But in same time I do not want to waste my good light foundation so another "awesome " idea - Hey let's mix it with a highlighter!
So I took the super sparkly highlighter from accessorize and started mixing , I was slighty worried it will be like a bunch of glitter coming thorught the mixture but I was wrong.



So at this stage I was thinking " Check me out! The shade looks perfect and does not have sparkles , I am amazing!" I could be not more wrong. 
The first swatch  - rimmel soft beige
second - highlighter
thrid - both mixed together

I was expecting a good result. As soon as I started applying it to my face I start noticing the CAKE LOOK - NOT GOOD!
After a while of blending in it start to crease , ane ugly lines of my face and I kept looking like I have a bad tan on. I do not know if the crease effect is becouse of my awfully dry skin? I applied so much cream and a moisturaising mask before doing that but still. I also have a bad skin now days and I am going to blame pregnancy on that one  , so I thought  I will get a nice result of coverage.
Well I looked horrible:
Can you see the difrfence with my neck? yuk
And here a picture after swatches got dry and you can see how kind of dry and fleaky they become.

So this is my experience with mixing , share your with me!

I can not wait for some look I will post here with big hit of this coming season the funky patterned leggins , but thats once the delivery guy will decide to finally knock on my door :0

Oh no that sucks, the only foundation mixing I've done is with Bourjois Healthy Mix as I mix 51 and 53 :)

I have had this fail too, I tried mixing a Nivea tinted foundation that felt too heavy on my face with a light The Body Shop day cream LOL!! It was a huge mess and looked awful so I wasted 2 good products *sigh* we live and learn!

I haven't tried yet, but want to give it a go soon, especially and some of the shades I have are a tad too dark for me and I don't quite know what to do with them xx

Ah, sucks that it didn't work out because it sounded like an interesting idea at the beginning. I've never tried mixing foundations but that's mainly due to me being lazy. I shall have to give it a go one day though. :)
