Tuesday Tip – Issue 12 – DIY Tinted Moisturizer
If you are a regular reader of the blog you know I’m a big fan of tinted moisturizer. Provided you eat well and take care of your skin, most of us don’t need anything more than tinted moisturizer and concealer on a daily basis. Save time and money by only using foundation for special night outs or occasions.
Tinted Moisturizer (TM) should do two things: be a great moisturizer and match your complexion seamlessly. Some of my favorites are Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier, theBalm and Urban Decay. Unfortunately some people complain that either the color doesn’t match or it isn’t moisturizing enough. So here are a couple of options:
1. If you need more moisture, layer TM over your regular moisturizer. Just give the moisturizer a few minutes to absorb before applying the TM.
2. If you have sensitive skin, mix your shade of mineral foundation with your favorite moisturizer. I like the one from Bare Escentuals with a lightweight moisturizer like Olay.
3. If you need more coverage, take a full-coverage foundation and dilute it down. Make sure you get an exact foundation match otherwise it won’t look good. I like Revlon ColorStay and Lush Shangri-La for this combination.
