Tinted Moisturizer…you hear about it all the time, but is it really for you? Instead of spending time and money looking for a tinted moisturizer that could work for you I’ve discovered a simple, yet effective technique that can save you both your time and money.
All you need is your favorite facial moisturizer (or any moisturizer will do) and foundation. If you’re holding onto foundation that is a bit too dark for you, but are unsure what to use it for you may be in luck!
Simply mix your moisturizer with your foundation and voila! You now have tinted moisturizer! Really, it is that easy. Of course, the amount of moisturizer and foundation you combine is up to you. Naturally, you won’t want to use the same amount of moisturizer you typically use since you are adding foundation to it. If you are looking for just a hint of tint, then you will want to use more moisturizer than foundation. If you prefer more coverage, then add more foundation than moisturizer. Or you can just add equal parts moisturizer and equal parts foundation for that natural tinted glow.
When I mix my moisturizer with my foundation (or even two different shades of foundation to get that perfect shade) I prefer to use an artist spatula (a plastic or stainless steel one works just fine) to perfectly combine my concoction. You can use either the back of your hand (make sure your hands are clean) or you can use a clean artist palette to put your tinted moisturizer on.
