Question: I Just Bought my Regular Foundation but Summer is Here, so What Should I do?
Sometimes summer heat can sneak up on us very quickly, and this seems to especially be the case when we suffer through a long and chilly winter. So if you thought that you could put off switching to your summer makeup but quickly found out that you desperately need it in order to prevent makeup meltdown, there is a solution. Instead of throwing out that new bottle of foundation or putting it in a holding pattern until fall and winter, why not use it to make your own tinted moisturizer?
Answer: Whatever you do, don't toss or hide that new bottle of foundation. Instead, grab your favorite facial moisturizer and make your very own customized tinted moisturizer. You can experiment with the measurements, depending on how much coverage you would like, but on average you will need two pumps or dollops of moisturizer to one pump or dollop of foundation. Simply blend them together with a fingertip, makeup sponge, or foundation brush in the palm of your hand, and then apply for a great summer-friendly look.
