How To Chose A Perfect Tinted Moisturizer

Makeup trends are always evolving and every day there is something new coming up. A couple of years back, full coverage foundations were a thing. Even today, there is nothing that could beat a full coverage foundation mask but as more and more people are embracing their natural skin and freckles became a new trend, full coverage foundation started losing its charm and quickly tinted moisturizer or BB cream came into the light.

Perfect for the people, who love no-makeup makeup looks or my skin but better skin trends, tinted moisturizers are quickly winning the hearts and becoming people’s favourite. Whether you want to run quick errands or you want to go to the office meeting, tinted moisturisers or BB creams work flawlessly for both occasions. They might not give you a full glam but they do give you perfect looking, well-nourished skin. Tinted moisturizers hydrate the skin as well as leave a hint of pigment which is just enough to cover the imperfections. They also come with the added benefits of SPFs which also protects your skin from the harmful UV rays just like sunscreen.

What To Look For In A Tinted Moisturizers

  • Understand your skin and its requirements– Understanding your skin type is important when choosing any product for your face. You dont want to end up purchasing an oil-based product if you have oily skin or a matte product with dry skin. It could make things so much worse. That is why before buying any product, understand your skin and its requirement. It is the basic and the most important step.
  • The formula- A product formula that not just serves as makeup but also skincare definitely is the better and clever choice. Also, since it is a tint, this means it will not give you the coverage of a foundation. Keep in mind, that the coverage is very minimum to avoid any disappointments. 
  • Your shade availability- Make sure you buy the right shade. Look for a brand that has your shade and only goes with the product you are absolutely sure about.
  • SPF- The added benefit of SPF is always a cherry on top. SPF in summers, as well as winters, is a  must. So if your product is SPF, then it’s a win-win.
