Achieving that no makeup-makeup look can be a lot harder than it sounds. Ever tried getting a flawless base without look like you’ve got *too* much makeup on and failed? Us too, so let us introduce you to your secret weapon… tinted moisturiser.
Tinted moisturisers are basically what the name suggests, they’re like your normal, everyday moisturiser, just with a hint of tint. They’re the perfect middle ground for when you want to treat your skin but still have a bit of coverage, without your skin feeling masked in makeup. Naturally, tinted moisturisers lend themselves to drier skin types, but don’t let that put those of you with oily skin off – there are plenty of formulas out there that suit and work for oily skin.
