Just as the name goes, Tinted Moisturizer is simply a moisturizer with a hint of color. It is essentially a lightweight moisturizer that contains a small amount of pigment or tint. It provides hydration to the skin while offering sheer coverage, giving you a more even skin tone.
Why this is a great option for a foundation for the clean girl makeup aesthetics, I’m sad to break it to you that it can never replace your traditional moisturizer. If you are on a budget please go for a normal moisturizer but if that isn’t the case by all means please get this.
You actually get to enjoy the full benefit of a tinted moisturizer when you skip your traditional foundation and continue with the next step when you do your makeup.
Why use a Tinted Moisturizer?
For every good product produced in the world, there’s a class of people it caters to. I’m saying this because why the previous paragraph may have seemed a little anti-tinted moisturizer, there are many other good reasons to buy a tinted moisturizer so hear me out.
1. Lightweight feel: Tinted moisturizer feels lighter on the skin compared to traditional foundations. It’s a great option for those who don’t like the sensation of heavy makeup.
2. Natural look: Perfect for achieving a natural, “barely there” makeup look. It evens out the skin tone without masking your natural features.
3. Hydration: Provides essential hydration to the skin, making it suitable for individuals with normal to dry skin types.
4. Sun protection: Many tinted moisturizers contain SPF (sunscreen), offering protection against harmful UV rays. However, it’s important to note that the level of protection can vary, so it’s recommended to use a dedicated sunscreen if extended sun exposure is anticipated.
5. Quick application: Tinted moisturizer is easy to apply and blend, making it a great option for those who want a fuss-free makeup routine.
6. Versatility: Can be used alone for a natural look or as a base for more elaborate makeup looks. It works well with other makeup products like blush, bronzer, and concealer.
