DIY Tinted Moisturizer

Okay I know I am back with yet another DIY but honestly guys I am loving it. Its simple easy and so inexpensive and as the title says we are going to do a DIY tinted moisturizer.

A tinted moisturizer is nothing but a moisturizer with a little bit of tint/color. When you don’t want to do a full face makeup but still want your face to look flawless then you can just apply a tinted moisturizer. This will not entirely give you like full foundation coverage but will hide those small blemishes. So let’s get started.

You Will Need:

  • Your favorite moisturizer
  • A foundation

Method:

Take your moisturizer (I am using Nivea Crème) and a tiny bit of your foundation. I am using Maybelline Fit me foundation (Dewy) in the shade 315 (Soft Honey) which is little bit dark for me. Mix well and apply on your face with your fingers or foundation brush.

You can also use any of your foundation which you think it’s dark for your skin tone. This will you a sheer to medium coverage and keeps your skin moisturized throughout the day. It feels comfortable and doesn’t give any cakey look.

For long lasting:

Before you apply any lip color, just apply a coat of compact powder on your lips. The powder helps the lip color to lock and stay in place. Also it prevents your lipstick from smudging and bleeding.

.I  think I’m officially addicted to liquid lipsticks and have shunned other forms of lipstick, for now at least. Recently I got Ofra Cosmtics long lasting liquid lipstick in the shade MINA. It’s a gorgeous dark deep plum with purple-berry undertones which is appealing to all skin tones.

If you love long lasting, dry matte finish and also which gives good color pay off then you will definitely love this liquid lipstick.

Packaging:

The packaging of this liquid lipstick is nothing special. It comes in a plastic transparent tube and a plastic black lid. The applicator is doe foot shaped so it gets easy to apply.The packaging looks cheap for the price.

My Verdict:

This liquid lipstick is fully matte and I have been obsessed with matte lipsticks lately. The consistency is so creamy and mousse kind of a consistency and glides like a butter. It do lasts for long time so because of that it can feel a tad bit drying after couple of hours so I would recommend wearing a thin layer of lip balm before applying this lipstick. It does not give matte look as soon as you apply so you do need to let the color set for about a minute and then its perfect matte! This lipstick can be layered for darker intense look.

The staying power of this liquid lipstick is really good. It lasts up to good 6-8 hours. If you using matte liquid lipstick, I highly recommend you to exfoliate your lips (click here for DIY lip scrub) or apply a lip balm underneath. It gives amazing results. If applied without prepping your lips it might be too drying and may settle in dry flaky cracks and lines. The best thing about this product is it’s cruelty free.

Garnier cleansing Micellar water

I am sure you all have heard about Micellar water and people raving about it all over social media. Just a week ago I discovered this in skincare aisle at my local drugstore and thought of giving it a try. To be honest, I have no regrets !!

What is Micellar water?

Micellar water is made of tiny little oil particles suspended in water, and these particles latch onto make up to get off of your face. The reason why micellar water has become so popular is because it is very gentle, effective, and a good way to remove makeup without ruining the skin.

How do I use:

Double cleansing is essential step in my skincare routine when I wear makeup. I start cleansing once with coconut oil or cleansing water to remove makeup and then I again cleanse with a foam or cream cleanser to remove excess dirt and impurities that got built throughout the day. For eye-makeup, I soak a cotton pad in micellar water and place it on my eyes for about 10 seconds and gently rub the makeup. Waterproof eyeliner or mascara doesn’t come out easily with this micellar water so I suggest you to use some oil based eye-makeup remover. I generally use coconut oil to remove my eye-makeup.

My Verdict:

This cleansing water is amazing. I have been using for a week now and I already love the way my skin feels after using this. It doesn’t dry out my skin and it doesn’t leave an oily residue. It comes in a plastic bottle with a plastic cap. You get a lot of product for decent price.It contains no alcohol, parabens and is also fragrance free.

Price: $8.99 for 13.5 FL Oz (Price may vary)
