Cosmetics are very expensive, especially some of the new tinted moisturizers. If you want to make your own tinted moisturizer, take some of your liquid foundation and add some of your favorite moisturizer, sunscreen (if you want SPF), or a body lotion like Jergens. Mix a half and half portion of your liquid foundation and lotion, or come up with your own formula/measurements.
I had some liquid foundation left in the bottle the other day and just added some lotion to it and BINGO - tinted moisturizer! I live in a tropical environment, so I don't like to use a lot of foundation, so by mixing these two ingredients together you also get a lighter foundation and a more beautiful glow. Plus it stretches your cosmetic budget.

What a wonderful idea! I am thinking you could mix a wee bit of powdered blush well with some lotion for a sun kissed look too. :-)
