The Best Tinted Moisturizers To Use For A Lightweight, Natural Finish

Your skin but better!

Foundation may feel OTT for some because of its thicker formula that tends to look too made up for daily use. Good thing there's the tinted moisturizer—multitasking, easy to wear, and lightweight; consider it the foundation's v2.0 redux.

Tinted moisturizers also lend skin a natural-looking finish—like you're not wearing any makeup at all. If you're concerned about the coverage, it's buildable, and you can always dab concealer on the areas that need more ~help~. TBH, there's a lot to love about a tinted moisturizer! It's great for everyday use, especially when you're fond of the no-makeup look.

Ahead, we round up the most well-loved tinted moisturizers you can try.

  1. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer with Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen

    This is the OG tinted moisturizer loved by many. Just a sheer layer of the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer with Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen on your face evens out the complexion and grants your skin a dewy finish. This, my friend, is a worthy investment.

  2. Olay Total Effects with Touch Of Foundation 

    The Olay Total Effects with Touch Of Foundation multi-tasks like a star employee. It acts as a firming cream, spot corrector, pore refiner, moisturizer, SPF day cream, skin tone corrector, primer, foundation, and concealer—we can't ask for more from a base product! While you wear it during the day, it gently exfoliates the skin's surface to reduce the appearance of large pores and fine lines. It also fades dark spots with regular use.
