The one beauty product that gets more use than your mascara and lip gloss is definitely tinted moisturizer. It’s a product that’s lighter than your regular foundation but still gives you just the right amount of coverage and at the same time provides hydration and quite often sun protection.

 “A tinted moisturizer’s biggest job is to provide hydration, minimal coverage, and sometimes sun protection”.

Jackie Gomez, celebrity MUA, NY

The amount of colour pigment used in tinted moisturizer is usually less than foundation so the coverage is sheer and light but just enough to offer a flawless dewy look. Tinted moisturizers also appear to have more moisturizing agents, so they are likely to hydrate your skin better in comparison to a regular foundation.


How to choose and use them is as easy as 1,2,3…
