Do you have foundation that's too light?

Do you have foundation that's too light? I want to share this little crunchy tip with you!

Have you ever thought about adding a touch of organic cocoa powder as you apply it? Hee hee! Yes, the kind you make hot cocoa and bake cakes with. This is what I've been doing, because I spent a pretty penny on a good "clean" foundation.

I like my foundation lighter than my skin, but in the summer this seems to be way too light for me. OK, who are we kidding here?  I bought foundation that's even too light for me in the winter months too. Like, I could be an extra on 'Walking Dead', but they haven't called me yet, soooo...

Tarte foundation http://amzn.to/2fX2eMM I dig this foundation because I like a matte finish and this is made with Amazonian clay. Sometimes, it's too flat though, so I add a touch of my homemade serum to the palm of my hand, a dollop of the foundation, a pinch of cocoa powder and mix it with my finger before applying. Like a little custom color color palette. :-) Tarte makes other types of foundations too,
 but this has been working really well for me. 

Sometimes I will use just foundation and cocoa powder and no serum. Sometimes I dip a kabuki brush in loose powder and add a little cocoa instead, sort of like a bronzer. It all depends on my skin, the weather, and 4,000 other things I won't bore you with. So I threw a little plastic pot with organic cocoa powder in my make up bag for use as I deem appropriate!

So, why did I choose Tarte? This is directly from the Tarte website: I set out to create a line that would prove that glamour can be good for you by pioneering the use of high-performance naturals™. Today tarte is a leader in healthy, eco-chic beauty, offering cruelty-free cosmetics infused with skinvigorating™ ingredients like superfruit and plant extracts, vitamins, minerals, essential oils and other naturally-derived ingredients. But it's not just about what's in our powerful formulas; it's what's not in them that really sets us apart! All of our products are formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, triclosan, synthetic fragrances and gluten, just to name a few. Ingredients are absolutely important to me, but so are formulas that perform. We call it tarte 12-hour power™, but you'll just notice it lasts. Not to mention that we've got budgeproof, waterproof, sweatproof, SPF and formulas with truly compelling consumer panel claims.

Cuz, that!
