Hello Lovelies,

I wanted to share with you a quick and easy tip. With the increased popularity of BB creams and tinted moisturizers I wanted to offer you guys a very inexpensive and convenient alternative.

So, I do this technique when I am in hurry or I don’t want to apply full-on makeup. This is just a super quick and easy way to achieve a very natural fresh face look. Clearly, you can invest in a BB cream or tinted moisturizer, but why spend the money when you can achieve the same effect with products you already own!

Ok, so to create my own tinted moisturizer:

I take about pea size amount of foundation and put it on the back of my hand. I use Illamasqua’s Rich Liquid foundation, because this foundation offers full coverage I find that it works best with this technique.

Then I add a moisturizer on top. I add about 3 times the amount of moisturizer to the foundation. I use Embryolisse Lait- Creme Concentre, which is a very popular cream used by makeup artist worldwide.

Then with my fingertip I mix the products together on the back of my hand. I am using my fingers and hand, because the warmth from my finger allows the products to almost melt together.

Once the product is mixed I dot the mixture on my forehead, cheeks and chin. Then with my fingertips I blend it all in. I use very quick short strokes to work the product into my skin. I DO NOT rub it in, as that will cause streaking and most of the product will end up on your hand rather than your face.

Once you have evenly distributed the product on you face your are done! You skin will be even, moisturized & basically flawless. This entire process takes me no more than 2 minutes. Its just a simple way to achieve a fresh-face look without a lot of time and effort.

Hope this was helpful.
