Make your own tinted moisturiser

What is a tinted moisturiser?

A tinted moisturiser is a moisturiser with a hint of colour that can be used in place of foundation for a natural appearance. 

Advantages of tinted moisturiser:

Undoubtedly, there are some great tinted moisturisers on the market but, maybe you don’t want to spend extra money on a product you won’t use as much.  In that case, it's so easy to make your own with liquid/mineral foundation and moisturiser.  Besides, when making your own tinted moisturiser, you can determine the level of coverage you want/need.
Tinted moisturisers give you just a hint of colour that you need to look and feel pulled together without the fuss of a full make-up application.  They are perfect for younger girls who are just starting to wear make-up.  Foundation can be too heavy and make young girls look older.
It’s also a great choice for ageing skin; the added moisture helps to de-emphasise the appearance of wrinkles.  You can read more about make-up tips for ageing skin, in this earlier blog post: Does your make-up make you look older?

How to:
It's really easy to make your own tinted moisturiser.  Just mix your favourite foundation and moisturiser together and apply to the skin.

Mix a small amount of the two products together until they are completely blended.  For a lighter coverage, use more moisturiser and vice versa.  Apply all over your face and just under the chin.  You can apply with your fingers, just like you would apply a regular moisturiser.  Finish with some translucent loose powder to eliminate shine.

So tell me, do you prefer a full coverage foundation or a light tinted moisturiser?
