Daily Bling: DIY Tinted Moisturizer

Daily Bling: DIY Tinted Moisturizer

I can’t live without my tinted moisturizer.  It’s my go to “foundation” on a daily basis.  But supposed you don’t currently have a tinted moisturizer in your makeup arsenal?  Or perhaps you are stuck on foundation and want to check out the how you will fare with a tinted moisturizer.

Here’s what you do—become your own mixologist.  Now, many beauty industry trainers will tell you not to mix your foundation and moisturizer, as you will not get the full benefits of either.  I’m here to tell you, it ain’t true. Do it.  I mixed for years until tinted moisturizer become a mainstay in the foundation complexion category.  Thank you Laura Mercier…

My ideal mix is half moisturizer to half foundation.  This tends to yield a nice formulation that covers yet leaves a light glowing finish on the skin.

Now if you want to get fancy, you can mix up an illuminated moisturizer.  Just add a bit of a luminizer like NARS Orgasm Illuminator.

Why am I so worked up about tinted moisturizer?  Read this.

In case you want to skip the mix, my favorite tinted moisturizers are below.
