We love foundation as much as the next makeup junkie, but there are some days when you just don’t want that full coverage best.
Tinted moisturisers are ideal for days you want that natural, “no makeup” makeup vibe and perfect for Summer.
For gorgeous, lightweight coverage that’ll keep your skin looking dewy and even, look no further than these 6 amazing tinted moisturisers.
Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser SPF 30
The Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser is an absolute gift to all the foundation addicts out there, who are nervous about trusting a tinted moisturiser to give them a flawless base. This is the good stuff. It gives you dreamy lightweight coverage while airbrushing out any redness or uneven skin tones. It’s hydrating, natural-looking, and guess what? It’s also SPF 30. Doing the most.
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Oil Free
If you want that sun-kissed glow but are terrified of upsetting acne prone skin, then you should try Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturiser. Not only does it have SPF 20 to keep your skin protected, it’s also oil free so won’t clog your pores. It comes in a range of shades (warm and cool toned) so you can get a pretty good colour match and gorgeous sheer coverage.
Estee Lauder DayWear Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant Sheer Tint SPF 15
This one is a magic colour changing one. The Estee Lauder DayWear Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant Sheer Tint starts out untinted, but as you blend it into your skin you’ll see it pick up a nice glowy colour. You won’t get a lot of coverage with this one, but it will keep you moisturised and give you a healthy, seen-the-sun kind of finish.
NYX Bare With Me Tinted Skin Veil
The NYX Bare With Me Tinted Skin Veil came out of nowhere and slayed the game. We love this lightweight tint for feeling completely weightless on the skin, but providing fantastic medium coverage. It is lightweight but pigmented and we love the aloe vera infused formula. This is also a steal, at £10; and you can find your shade in the Slapp app.
Estee Lauder Futurist Hydra Rescue SPF45
This definitely-not-advertised-as-a-tined-moisturiser tinted moisturiser is a gorgeous go between for those who love a bit of coverage but want skincare vibes and a dewy radiant finish. The brand new Futurist Hydra Rescue SPF45 has a fantastic sun protection factor and an equally fantastic shade range; and you can also find your shade in the Slapp app.
Glossier Perfect Skin Tint
Glossier’s Perfect Skin Tint is perfect barely there tiny. This is not going to cover too much, but will give your skin a lovely wash of colour, just like a tint. It deals with redness and disguises pores but it won’t hide your freckles— this product really hits the sweet spot between makeup and natural skin.
