How to Make Your Own Tinted Moisturizer

Spring is the perfect time to start getting serious about daily sunscreen. I don't know about you, but I am less diligent about protecting my skin throughout the winter months when its consistently cloudy and I am trapped indoors. I recently reviewed Josh Rosebrook's Tinted Nutrient Day Cream with SPF 30 (review here) and while it is darn near perfect, it also comes with a high price tag. Not to mention the fact that if you enjoy the coverage of a foundation, you will have to layer this cream with additional products.

Making your own tinted moisturizer is a great way to use up products that you already have in your arsenal and customize your coverage. It will also speed up your routine because you won't have to spend time layering your lotions and potions. Here are a few tips to help you whip up the perfect tinted moisturizer!

  • Oil and water are immiscible. Therefore, to prevent your moisturizer from breaking up or separating throughout the day, you'll want to blend oil-based products with other oil-based products and water-based products with other water-based products.

  • Make sure that your SPF is face friendly to avoid annoying breakouts. If your skin is particularly sensitive, you may want to spot test a small batch of your moisturizer before committing to a large quantity.

  • If you are sensitive to certain scents, I recommend mixing together a sample of your moisturizer so that you can be certain that the combined aromas won't be too overwhelming. 



  • Make sure that you mix your customized tinted moisturizer well! Particularly when using mineral foundation, blend your creation thoroughly to avoid clumps and unevenness. 

All you have to do is combine your ingredients and enjoy!
