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.
