DIY Tinted Moisturiser!

Hi everyone,

I did so well last weekend with my blogging, and I kind of slowed down again this week.. sorry! I am back though! And I am now on holiday for the next 2 weeks so expect lots more blog posts!

I still need to do my september favourites.. I WILL do them this weekend - I promise!

Plus, all my lush stuff came and I got some bath stuff as a present to show you lot!

But onto todays post.

Now, the typical way to make a tinted moisturiser without actually buying one, is to mix your moisturiser and your foundation, but I have another way to show you! Probably 99% of you will know that you can do this, but whatever! I felt the need to blog!

I don't know about you, but I have had plenty of pressed powder smash, and leave me thinking that they have no use, and are just too messy to use. Well, I have a use now! Tinted Moisturiser!

What you'll need:

  • Smashed up pressed powder
  • Small Tub
  • Moisturiser
  • Something to mix it up with!
So, Heres what ya do!:

1. Take your pressed powder, and pour it into your small tub.

2. Take your moisturiser of choice. (Works best with a rich one!)

3. Squirt into your tub with your smashed pressed powder.

4. Mix it up!

Mine ended up a lot more smooth than this, and added more moisturiser, but, I stupidly forget to take a photo of the end product! Sorry!

So, there's a use for when your pressed powder gets smashed!

I changed up the blog layout, I'm not sure if I like it yet, but I am going to leave it up for a bit and see if I warm to it more!

Thanks everyone - Happy Friday!


  1. @Ellie thanks! It's a bit on the messy side but oh well!xxx

  2. I have been meaning to try this for quite some time. I'm always afraid of adding too much moisturiser or too little. I know it's easier to add just a little and gradually more... I think I may experiment soon! x

  3. Hey thanks for this post...Lovely layout!

  4. @Mary-cate you should!

    @Rakhshanda your welcome! Thank you:)xx

  5. Great idea ;)
