Are you still looking for your perfect tinted moisturizer?
Welcome to the club. I love wearing tinted moisturizers in the hot summer months. They give you all the hydration you need, a touch of colour that evens out your skin tone and masks imperfections without suffocating your skin. The best part? You don’t have to worry about the heat melting down your makeup.
But finding a shade that matches my skin tone? That’s a mission impossible. Tinted moisturisers rarely come in more than one or two shades. If you’re too pale (like me) or too dark, they won’t work. 🙁
That’s why I decided to take matters into my own hands and make my own tinted moisturiser. Here’s how:
P.S. If you have a foundation that doesn’t match your skin tone, this trick works for it as well.
How To Make your own tinted moisturizer
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
- Your everyday moisturiser
- Your liquid foundation
- Small jar/container
Mix your moisturizer with your foundation until you get the desired shade. As a rule, the more moisturizer you add to the mix, the sheer the foundation shade becomes.
You’ve guessed this, this trick works better if you use a foundation that’s a little dark for your skin tone. If it’s the same exact shade, your tinted moisturizer will be too light for you.
Once you’ve reached the desired colour, pour the mixture into a jar of container so you can use it in the days to come. You can also mix the tinted moisturizer on your hands every single day… but I’m too lazy for that. 😉
“I use loose mineral foundation. Can I use that to create my tinted moisturizer?”
Of course you can, gorgeous!
The process is the same. Just add enough powder until you get the desired texture and colour. The only difference is that you’ll need a spatula to pick up the powder – if you don’t, it’ll get messy quickly!
This is a great trick to travel with mineral foundation. It makes it much more travel-friendly!
