Ditch Your Foundation This Summer For Tinted Moisturizer

June 17, 2016

I dread summertime because it's usually 90 plus degrees and super humid in New Orleans.  It's impossible to stand outside more than ten minutes without sweating.  I tend to go for a lighter makeup routine in the summer and opt out of using a liquid foundation and instead wear a tinted moisturizer.  For the past few summers, I've made my own tinted moisturizer by mixing a little of my liquid foundation with a moisturizer.  The coverage would be light to medium depending on the number of applications.  A month ago, I finally bought a tinted moisturizer from Laura Mercier.  It retails for $44 at Sephora.  I know it's a bit pricey, but it is definitely worth it.  It has SPF 20, so your skin has some protection from the sun.  It also has Vitamin C and E, which is good for brightening and repairing the skin.  I apply it with a beauty blender because it gives me better coverage and goes on flawlessly.  The best thing about it, I don't have to constantly re-apply throughout the day and my skin has a natural glow.  What are some of your favorite tinted moisturizers? Comment below and let me know!
