Les Beiges Water-Fresh Tint, £51 | Chanel

Best For: Hydrating Wear 

Lightweight and designed to instantly refresh the complexion, the Chanel skin tint is a luxe favourite for good reason. More of an investment, it’s expertly formulated with innovative micro-fluidic technology, meaning that 75% of the product is made with a hydrating, water base. Micro-droplets of pigment are blended into this so when the product is buffed into the skin, these little pockets of pigment deliver a light dose of radiant coverage.

Tinted Serum, £28.40 | Typology

Best For: Its Skin-Loving Formula

Brimming with goodness, this tint has a kind-to-the-skin formula that’s silicone free, non-clogging and enhanced with vitamin C,  squalane and aloe for long-lasting hydration. Ideal for creating a ‘no-make-up make-up look’, it also promises to improve the look of your skin over time. And if that wasn’t enough, the brand understands the struggle if you’re between shades – which is why it knocks 50% off your second bottle of serum so you can blend them together to find your perfect match.

BFF De-Stress, £39 | Trinny London

Best For: A Natural Finish 

Formulated with Trinny London’s exclusive NP-TriOX technology, this product aims to revive dull, stress-damaged skin. Hyaluronic acid instantly plumps and smooths the skin’s surface, offering long-term nourishment to leave the complexion looking and feeling more energised. With radiant, natural wear, and low-to-medium coverage, this is perfect if you’re looking for that second-skin look.

Serum Foundation With SPF 15, £6.40 | The Ordinary

Best For: An Affordable Option 

We always rave about the Ordinary’s no-fuss skincare, which is designed to be simple but seriously effective. Its make-up is no different, as this incredibly natural-looking serum foundation proves. Choose from 21 shades, all of which come with a semi-matte finish and flattering, long-wear results. To top things off, the formula also has a healthy dose of SPF15.

Slip Tint, £27 | Saie

Best For: A Dewy Finish

If you’re after a long-lasting but not greasy glow, look no further. Saie’s lightweight tint promises to enhance your skin without creating any tell-tale heaviness. The comfortable coverage is the result of a considered blend of ingredients: liquorice brightens and protects skin against discoloration while aloe nourishes and takes down redness. Meanwhile, vitamins A and C work hand in hand with pansy flowers to soothe irritation and keep skin looking youthful, all while argan oil delivers a hydrating glow.

Glass Glow Skin Tint, £13 (was £26) | Ciate

Best For: A Radiant Finish 

This semi-sheer tint has the kind of cushion-like balm formula that simply glides onto skin. The finish is best described as an ultra-luminous, never shimmery, glass-like sheen – the result of an infusion of hyaluronic acid, yuzu extract, dragon fruit extract and vitamin C that makes the perfect moisture-boosting blend.

Natural Skin Perfector, £37 | Laura Mercier

Best For: Broad-Spectrum Protection 

A little of this goes a long way – especially if you’re looking for light to medium coverage. Equipped with an impressive SPF30 protection, this is an ideal daily base with a buildable finish. With a hydrating complex made up of macadamia and kukui seed oils, the product helps maintain a long-term moisture-lock for 24 hours of hydration.

Nu Bare Look Tint, £27 | YSL

Best For: Its Skincare Enriched Formula 

Part of YSL’s highly anticipated Nu collection, this light-to-medium coverage tinted moisturiser is formulated with 90% skin-loving ingredients. The new range of makeup-skincare hybrids all come with a fragrance, chemical and allergen-free formulation, so this tint is great for sensitive, youthful skin needing a fresh splash of coverage. The brand recommends working the product in with your fingers to reveal an even, natural finish.

Just Skin, £73 | Chantecaille

Best For: A Velvety Finish 

This easily buildable blend of thyme and butterfly bush extracts offers a range of antioxidant benefits and helps lock in moisture long term. Along with SPF15 and an easy to blend consistency, it wears with a velvety finish that can be built up in the areas that need it – specifically where redness, blemishes or discolouration is most common.

Eaze Drop, £19.50 (was £27) | Fenty Beauty

Best For: A Wide Shade Range

Regular readers will know how much we rate Fenty’s inclusive range, and this lightweight skin blur comes in a whopping 25 flexible shades. Using a ‘hydrablend’ complex, it layers easily over skincare or primers to provide a smooth and even base that lasts in the face of humidity and sweat. Shake well before applying with fingers or a foundation brush, and buff it out to create an effortless no-make-up make-up look.
