My skin has been extra dry recently because of winter–to the point where I’ve needed to moisturize frequently. I typically use one of two face products, the Neutrogena ® Skin Clearing Complexion Perfector or the Lush Cosmetics Colour Supplement in Light Yellow. I find that the Neutogena is better for when my skin is dry, and the Lush is better for when my skin is feeling a little more oily. Sometimes, I even mix both!
I love them both because they are lightweight, provide light coverage (I like having my natural skin kinda shine through), and are creamy and super blendable! And they do not break me out and are not heavy on my skin! They’re both my favorite tinted moisturizer/face base of 2016–my high-end and drugstore pick! (PS, Jess from PT Contender has tried the anti-aging one, and it’s amazing! I use the anti-breakout one. I believe they have the same kind of formula, just different purpose!)
I think it’s super important to find a foundation, or in my case tinted moisturizer, that really suits your needs! I absolutely love both of these, and have not found a better all natural, or drugstore alternative for both.
The LUSH is a lot thicker, and more so better as a concealer, which is what I have been using it as recently! The Neurtogena is the better base.
If you made me pick a favorite, I would have to say the Neutrogena one, because I truly can use it with all types of skin types, and it is less expensive. The LUSH one does have the benefit of being all natural, though. If you all have any other all natural tinted moisturizers to recommend, be sure to tell me!
ANYWAYS, these are the other products I use.
A moisturizer- I am currently using It Cosmetics’ Confidence in a Cream™ Transforming Moisturizing Super Cream, because my skin is SUPER dry. My little deluxe sample tub has lasted me a very, very, very long time. I also love the all-natural lavender moisturizer Jojo and I use, and also Clinique’s. My skin is dry during winter, so this is an extra step.
Lush Cosmetics Magical Moringa Face Moisturizer– Now that I’ve used it a few times, I’ve learned not to be too stingy when applying. AKA, I really need to buy a full size because my deluxe sample is dwindling. It’s an absolutely awesome face and eyeshadow primer, and I have sung its praises multiple times on this blog.
Neutrogena ® Skin Clearing Complexion Perfector– This is my perfect base makeup, my dream tinted moisturizer. I absolutely love it, and find that it blends into my skin beautifully and effortlessly. It provides light coverage, is not heavy, and makes my skin look lowkey naturally radiant. It’s awesome. I use my Urban Decay brush to apply this… and pretty much everything else after this.
Lush Cosmetics Colour Supplement in Light Yellow– I apply a tiny bit of this under my eyes, around my nose, and teensy bit on my cheeks! I use it as a concealer, because it is so thick and creamy. I’ve found that although it does work well as a tinted moisturizer, it works much better as a concealer, and used sparingly! It’s such a tiny little container, after all!
Lush Cosmetics Emotional Brilliance Translucent Face Powder– The best translucent powder that I have ever used! It is smooth, finely milled, and goes on smooth. It is truly translucent and does not leave any weird casts, and is normal if you take flash photography! I absolutely love this, and have not found a better powder yet! And it’s all natural.
All in all, I think these products make the perfect face routine for me! They’re all wonderful and part of this perfect little formula for light, breathable, natural face makeup. And even though my skin is lowkey dry and crusty…you can’t even tell! The moisturizers and proper priming really help, and so does the tinted moisturizer!
PS- the eyeshadow is the Tarte Cosmetics Tarteist Palette. I have not used another palette since I bought it…. lol. Other makeup is the usual….should I make a post of my “usual?” Let me know!
What’s your current foundation or tinted moisturizer of choice??
