BEAUTY: How to Make Your Own Tinted Moisturizer

Tinted moisturizer is great for warmer weather because it's lighter on your face and often contains much needed SPF protection. Making your own is super simple and prevents you from dropping a dime on a separate product because you can whip this up with things you probably already have. TIP: this is also a great project for those too-dark foundations you bought by mistake because you can lighten them up to your perfect shade!

What You Need
Facial Moisturizer with SPF
Empty Bottle
Mixing Tool

How To Make It
1. Squeeze a plop of your moisturizer into your bottle.
2. Pour an equal amount of your foundation into the bottle. I used about a
1:1 mixture, but you can add more foundation or moisturizer to change the shade.
3. Stir your mixture with your mixing tool and/or shake the bottle with the cap on.

You're done - it's really that easy to make your own custom shade of tinted moisturizer! You can also try this with mineral power foundations for a more sheer result and/or add some bronzer powder for a pop of tan. Any way you mix it you've got a cheap, easy and useful product to add to your makeup bag!



  1. This is such a great idea! I've been using Sonia Kashuk tinted moisturizer but I don't know if $13 is worth it if I can whip up some of my own. :)

  2. Such a great idea and so easy!
