Well most of us keep trying new shades and brands of tinted moisturizer and end up buying a tinted moisturizer which turns out either too dark, light, too heavy or it’s too oily or not that moisturizing for our skin.

It’s always better to make your own tinted moisturizer so that you get the right shade and moisturizer according to your requirement. Especially if you live in a warm climate and don’t want to look greasy or cake yourself with heavy makeup then your own tinted moisturizer a great way to give light coverage to your skin.

Have you ever wondered how supermodels get their glowing look? You guessed it right .It’s because of tinted moisturizer. Tinted moisturizer is light on your skin but still provides a coverage which evens out your skin tone. It also conceals blemishes.

Let us learn how to make tinted moisturizer

Take your favorite moisturizer and make sure that it’s according to your skin type and is not too greasy. Now pick any foundation of your choice. You can use powder, liquid or mineral foundation too. According to me high quality mineral make up get dissolved easily with the moisturizer and gives an even coverage .It gives a soft glow and is light to use too.

If you are not into mineral foundation then you can use your liquid foundation as well which too get blended easily with the moisturizer.

Mix both foundations together until both get blended perfectly and store it in a small bottle. Best thing is that you have the control on the foundation and can reduce or add the quantity according to your requirement.

When you are in hurry just use this tinted moisturizer and apply it on your face and blend it well. It requires lot of bending on your cheeks, nose and forehead . Apply some mascara and lip gloss and you are ready to go out.

PS:-

1.Tinted moisturizer can be stored for 10-15 days in your fridge.
2.You can use nude shimmering eye shadow to tinted moisturizer to high light your nose or eyes area.
3.If you want to give yourself a bronze look then add dark shimmering eye shadow in the tinted moisturizer and apply it on your check bone .You can apply a bit of it on your fore head and chin too.
4.You can high light your cheek bones by adding little dark foundation as compared to your skin tone and apply it on your cheek bones, chin and forehead. Applying this foundation will give you a bronze look only.

  1. Hello Anamika,
    I was reading your old post….how stupid i was…i did not know what a tinted moisturizer was all these days? I am learning the ABCD of makeup after enrolling to Wise-She!!
    I have one doubt…after applying this tinted moisturizer..do you have to dab on loose powder on the face or just leave as it is?
    Next question……when you want to use sunscreen or sunblock….you need to use moisturiser first and then comes sunscreen or sun block ..Right? Should you put on powder also on this…what is the right method?
    Thanks, dhanu

    • U can dab face poweder on your face dhanu ..it is all up to you…

      yes first moisturiser and then sunsreen or get a moisturizer which has both.you can powder if you want.

    • Anindita..what i meant was if u don want hevay foundations on daily basis then tinted moisturiser can take it place.using foundation every day is quite cumbersome na.
