Beauty Buys: Tinted Moisturisers
If no-make-up make up is your goal then jump onto the bandwagon of tinted moisturisers. In essence, they are exactly what they sound: moisturising lotions\creams with a hint of tint. Light, breathable and sheer, a tinted moisturiser will leave you with seemingly flawless, glowing skin.
With the fashion world raving about natural style, tinted moisturisers are the perfect way to get that “less is more” look. Blend it in your skin to even out skin tone for an automatic natural complexion. If you are a fan of the dewy look, there is no need to apply any powder, as the tint will stay put throughout the day. For those who prefer a more matte look, simply apply a sheer, translucent powder over the entire face. If you are one with a more intensive makeup routine, a tinted moisturiser can serve as a first layer of sunscreen, which many women neglect to do.
The Ultimate Time-Saver
If you don’t want full coverage or have time for elaborate make up, tinted moisturisers are the thing for you. They come in convenient packaging and have an easy, no-fuss application. Just squeeze some on clean hands and apply like your usual moisturiser to give your skin an even coverage for a day out.
3 perks with 1 product
Tinted moisturizers are a combination of light foundation, moisturiser and sunscreen (SPF 15 atleast), so they are a great way to cut down on the number of products in your skin care routine.
Light and Breath-y
Te difference between foundations and tinted moisturizers is that the latter has less colour pigments and more humectants that hydrate your skin. Tinted moisturisers are lighter and more breathable. Also, these shades are comparatively easier to choose because they do not need to be exactly the colour of your skin. The sheer tint blends to match your skin tone minimising the chance of noticeable makeup lines between the face and neck.
Is it for you?
As great as they seem, consider your skin type before opting for a tinted moisturiser. Remember, they are not as heavy as normal foundations, nor do they provide as much coverage for women with poor complexions. While it does a great job of evening the skin tone, it may not completely hide blemishes or other imperfections. The product is good for women with dry skin but if you have naturally oily skin, you may want to steer clear of tinted moisturisers, as they can make the skin oilier.
