If you already mix your foundation in with your moisturiser to get a thinner consistency but find it dilutes the coverage then I think you'll find this tip super helpful... :)
I already know a lot of people who mix their foundations in with their moisturiser to make their own concoction of BB creams for everyday. However I find that just doesn't cover the skin so well & I find it's very wasteful of foundation since you have to apply several layers which defeats the whole purpose. Especially when my foundations are usually £30 - 40 +.
So I decided to start mixing my moisturiser in with my concealer as they tend to be of a thicker consistency or are cream based with more pigment. This way I get a much better coverage, that feels light & wearable, that's just as good as the new BB & CC creams that have become popular. You also don't need to use to much concealer since they're usually more denser in pigment.
I prefer to use the Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer (which I got recently - review to come!) but I also use Illamasqua concealers since they are so thick and I've been using up all my MAC concealers this way as well.
And there you go, all the benefits of skincare but with the coverage of makeup... & no waste! This is also great for when you've run out of foundation, and need something in an emergency. If you found this particular tip helpful & try it out, do let me know, I'd love to hear about it.
