Now don't get me wrong, I love summer as much as the next person. I would pick summer over winter any day of the week. But my skin isn't such a fan of it. Having really dry skin already, in the summer months my skin just dries out even more and my foundation looks terrible. I started using Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser and I fell in love. It glided over my skin and gave me the perfect coverage despite only being a tinted moisturiser. But I didn't fall in love with the price tag, at £33 a pop it's hardly purse friendly and will something I ask for at Christmas and birthdays rather than a everyday item.
But I think I've found the solution. It almost seems silly talking about this as it seems so obvious but about a week ago I was playing with my make-up as you do and I suddenly thought why don't I mix my moisturiser in with my foundation. One pump of each, mix together and hey presto you've got yourself a DIY tinted moisturiser that works just as well! The results are excellent, but make sure you use a moisturiser that is the same consistency as your foundation as I've found using a thicker moisturiser makes it clumpy.
I'm really chuffed with the results and its become my go to skin base since the weather has heated up in the UK.
