I recently took a trip to a pretty dry climate. I’m one of those rare gals who adores humidity. My skin dries very easily and the humidity helps keep me from getting flaky. Between the humidity decrease and the dry airplane air, I knew I’d need to slather extra moisture on my face.
My solution? I mixed up a custom Tinted Moisturizer.
- I started with an empty mineral makeup sample jar– but any small tub would work (such as a pill container, lotion sample bottle, lip balm tin, etc).
- Then I added a few pumps of my Lexli Day Lotion (with SPF 15) and…
- Next I added my Purely Cosmetics’ loose mineral makeup (I used California Blonde). Add your minerals slowly- add a bit, then stir to check the color, repeat until you get your desired coverage and color level. Since the lotion goes on transparent, you really just want the minerals to give you a bit of coverage.
So instead of carrying my minerals in powder form, I keep a small tin of this mix in my purse at all times. It’s perfect for touchups (much less messy than dusting minerals while you’re on-the-go) and traveling! Plus your skin will stay moisturized and healthy. Can’t beat that!
