@Calathea have you considered using a concealer as a tinted moisturizer? Personally, I don't want to go darker but like to stay within my colour. I don't know how much coverage you need but I use my BM concealer as a foundation. I just speckle on the areas that need coverage and blot it with a special sponge. This one: http://www.beautyblender.com/beautyblender-defined2/ This sponge does a really nice job of smoothing out the concealer and leaves a sheererer coverage. I don't want to spend a whole lot of money on a foundation either since I wouldn't be using it all up. A small pot of concealer fits the bill. Just a thought.
