Best Tinted Moisturizer For Summer

Even you are getting some sun, I hope you are wearing SPF, sometimes you just need some more coverage. Typical foundation can weigh down your skin and face giving you the complete opposite look you want which of course is the youthful and fun aesthetic. If you feel like you need a touch of makeup during the sunnier months consider trying out a tinted moisturizer.

Summer is the perfect time to experience wearing less makeup for so many different reasons. First, you can give your skin a chance to breathe fresh air. Two, take this opportunity to get some vitamin D, just make sure to wear a little bit of spf. Lastly, learn to grow comfortable in your own skin, own who you are and what you look like, beautiful.

Tinted moisturizers are phenomenal and have been receiving a lot of buzz in the media. Magazines like Cosmopolitan and Seventeen have raved and reviewed tinted moisturizers from all sorts of different brands. These tinted moisturizers are especially great if you are very active in the summer and love to go paddle boarding, biking, hiking, swimming, etc.

You can also DIY your own tinted moisturizer! Yes, that’s right, you can make this product just by using products you already have like your facial moisturizer and foundation. Simply, grab a small container like a clean sample bottle form Sephora or a beauty counter and put equal parts facial moisturizer and foundation, or until you reach your desired consistency.

I have a few more tips for you when DIYing your tinted moisturizer. First, make sure your foundation or moisturizer has SPF to protect your skin form harmful UV rays. Second, try to mix the foundation and moisturizer that have the same consistency to avoid clumping.
