Its a boring blog today... Tinted Moisturizers.....

Sorry ladies... i know its kind of dry and boring today.... :) I will do better tomorrow.

You know those days when it is blistering hot out... and you just know that your makeup will be melting off your face in a matter of minutes? Tinted moisturizer ladies! Its great, dewy and very sheer. It will give you a nice glow, while it evens out your skin tone.

There are so many tinted moisturizers out there right now. They are all virtually the same, although they have different coverage. What you choose depends on what you need. Personally, I have 3 ( my husband thinks I belong on hoarders…Whatever. ). One is very sheer, one is a little thicker, and the last is a little darker, for when I'm tanned.

To be honest, I just put all three on the back of my hand and walk into the light to see the difference between them. They all feel the same, and the only difference would be the darker tint in my "tanning moisturizer".

The 3 that I use are the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer ( thinnest ), Smashbox's oil-free sheer focus tinted moisturizer ( a little thicker), and Mac Studio moisture tint w/SPF 15. My favorite and the one I use most often would be the Mac Tint. For the days where you need a little more foundation, cut the tinted moisturizer with your regular foundation. It will give you a nice coverage, but won’t feel as though you have a "full face" on.

Mac Studio Moisture Tint SPF 15. 40ml tube, $38 CND, available at MAC retailers & online.

On a side note for all you other makeup artists, estheticians & hair stylists out there. My girlfriend Nicole informed me about West Coast Beauty Co. 108-6741 Cariboo Road, Burnaby, BC (604) 321-2700‎. You need your license or Diploma... But this place is awesome! There are cheap products and a wide variety. I will definitely be going back!
