With summer fast-approaching, who wants to spend hours perfecting their makeup only for it to be ruined by sweat and sun? Tinted moisturisers are a fantastic alternative to heavy foundation because they are light on the skin, contain a high percentage of SPF, and don’t necessarily need to be applied using makeup brushes (saving you less time getting ready).
Here are just a few tinted moisturisers to suit dry, oily, and combination skin types which are also available in many different shades to suit your skin tone.
Dove Essential Nutrients Tinted Moisturiser, $9.99
Specifically formulated to make skin look and feel radiant through those warm summer days. The fragrance-free formula is perfect if you want a visibly brighter visage without breaking the bank on expensive products which may not offer broad spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays.
Natio Tinted Moisturiser, $18.95
Easily available at most pharmacies, this formula boasts the benefits of a moisturiser and lightweight foundation. Comes with a hint of colour to match most skin tones and an SPF of 20+ to create a fresh and barely-there look when applied carefully onto the skin.
Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser, $56
With a light formula which covers redness, and with over 11 shades to choose from you are bound to find a colour that’s right for you. Packed with an SPF of 15+ the formula is buildable, and ideal for any summer occasion such as going out to the beach or even a late dinner by the water.
Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturiser SPF 15, $74
The added SPF makes this tinted moisturiser ideal for everyday use in the hot sun. The many anti-ageing complexes are also best for older skin, since they work harmoniously to create a visibly younger visage. Available in six different shades.
