Make Your Own Tinted Moisturizer

Make Your Own Tinted Moisturizer With SPF — It's Easy!

When Summer hits, it's time to switch from heavy foundations to a tinted moisturizer. You could splurge on something new, or just whip up this DIY product with things you already have in your cosmetics case. There's nothing fancy about this recipe, but it works. If you use loose powder mineral makeup, you can make your own custom-blended tinted moisturizer by mixing it with the face lotion you use. It's the perfect solution for Summer because you can add the tinted powder to your favorite sunscreen for extra protection.

Try blending a nickel-size amount of La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 facial sunscreen ($30) with a bit of Alima Pure satin matte foundation ($25) on your hand. A little mixing creates a smooth tinted moisturizer that you can adjust as needed. The more powder you put in, the higher the coverage. Easy, as promised.

Eneriyma, I just mix it all up in my hand first to get the consistency right. Patriciamuller, I'm glad it's working well for you. It does look more natural, no?

Oh, what a brilliant idea!! I've been doing that in the past 2 days using my Bare Minerals mineral foundation and Clinique's moisturizing gel and my skin looks flawless!! A much better alternative to using mineral makeup on top of the moisturizer, it looks much more natural and brighter! :) I love this!!!

I love this! I used to do this all the time. I like Moisture Surge mixed with an illuminating powder!

I've tried this with my alima foundation and it ended up sticky and a little streaky. Any tips?
