Today I have a fun DIY to share with you guys. Foundation is one of the things that is a must-wear for me to cover up imperfections and even out coloring in my skin. However, in the hot summer it can be a pain to have a foundation layered on your face because it can feel cakey and heavy under the warm sun. The solution? Tinted moisturizer. While I love a good tinted moisturizer, sometimes it's just not ideal. A lot of people don't have the budget to spend on both a good foundation and tinted moisturizer. When I went traveling last week, I forgot my tinted moisturizer and came up with a quick and easy solution for a wonderful tinted moisturizer!
Let's get started!
You will need:
|Any liquid foundation that's good for you.|
Revlon Age Defying with DNA Advantage in Soft Beige
|Your favorite lotion.|
Olay Age defying Anti-Wrinkle Daily SPF 15 Lotion
|Squirt one half foundation and one half moisturizer onto a clean surface. Even though this doesn't look like a lot, the lotion will actually spread out the foundation so that this amount can cover at least half your face.|
|Start mixing the two mediums together. Mix until fully blended so that no white is visible.|
|Your tinted moisturizer should end up looking like this.|
That's it! This takes about only five more seconds than your normal foundation routine.
|It should have more of a liquidy texture than your foundation that when applied is really lightweight.|
|Partially blended. The lotion makes it really easily blend-able!|
I definitely love tinted moisturizer for the summer because it's so breathable and gives a really natural coverage while still evening out your skin tone. Not to mention, the lotion benefits your skin even further than a foundation would by locking in the moisture in your skin during a dry summer.
