Whilst there’s most certainly a time and a place for foundation, we're of the belief that a glowy face, looks better with a sheerer base. Skin that looks like skin is always nicer than cakiness, even if that means some imperfections end up showing through. But... if you can get that sheer tint of coverage alongside some skincare benefits, or a hefty hit of SPF, all the better.
Here are 3 Tints we’re loving atm, that do just that.
Best For A Natural Look: L.A. Girl BB Cream
If you seriously want to look like your skin is makeup free and just in its best, most hydrated and even-toned condition possible, this is your guy. The effects are subtle the difference is dramatic (our complexion has never looked more even!). This BB looks a lot thicker than it is, but as soon as you start to apply, feels as light as a feather. This would be particularly ideal for dull or dehydrated complexions. The bonus? It’s less than a fiver.
Best All Rounder: bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Hydrating Gel Cream
I think you’d be hard pressed to find someone who didn’t like this. It feels lightweight, but offers medium coverage. It’s moisturising and glowy but never looks greasy. It can be applied with fingers in around fifteen seconds. And it has SPF 30. It lets skin breathe and the radiance boost is unreal!
Best Invisible Tint: Charlotte Tilbury Unisex Healthy Glow
If you’re in a minimal mood but still want to exude a sun-kissed glow, Charlotte Tilbury’s Unisex Healthy Glow is a must-try. This clever looking moisturiser is infused with natural tan pigments which melt into the skin for a natural look. Think of it as an illuminating, lightweight moisturiser, (that would also work wonders under foundation.)
