Foundation, concealer, BB creams, CC creams... it can all be so much. Especially when you have less than 20 minutes until you need to head out the door or rush to the campus shuttle. Throw the cold and dry air into the equation it can make your morning beauty routine more chaotic than necessary.
Insert tinted moisturizers. A definite essential when a full makeup routine is not worth the hassle but some sort of complexion product is absolutely needed to hide the late nights.
With so many tinted moisturizers on the market at varying price points and catering to different skin types, everyone is able to have their own skin savior in their beauty arsenal. Celebrities have even gotten on the train of ditching heavier foundations and powders and reaching for a tinted moisturizer instead. In an article that she wrote for Byrdie.com, Olivia Culpo admitted that she was obsessed with the now discontinued Dior Hydration Deep Hydration Skin Tint that she mixed with Revision Skincare Intellishade Original to achieve her everyday look.
Model Ashley Graham told Vogue that during the Summer months she preferred the cult favorite Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer, but make no mistake, tinted moisturizer can get the job done in the cooler weather as well.
The key is to find a product that will counteract the dullness of skin that tends to come with cool and dry air. Like Lancome’s Healthy Glow Skin Tint or Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer.
If a drugstore product is more in your comfort zone and price range, Coloupop recently released their Hyaluronic Tinted Moisturizer which is the perfect contrast to their matte formula and adds an extra layer of hydration.
Another absolute favorite option is the Lumi Glotion by L’Oreal. As can be expected from the brand, this product is perfect as well as an ideal stepping stone into the world of tinted moisturizers.
Don’t just take my word for it. Experiment this season and try to find your new skin savior.
