The Best Tinted Moisturisers For Flawless Skin

The Best Tinted Moisturisers For Flawless Skin

When the weather warms up a hard-working moisturiser is a welcome alternative to heavy foundation. Brightening and hydrating, these lightweight formulations are easy to wear but still work to even out skin tone. Here, we reveal our picks of this summer beauty essential.

Best For UV & Environmental Protection: Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Moisturiser, £29

A cult classic, this complexion rescuer always delivers while protecting your skin from environmental aggressors. Giving your face a light-reflective, shiny finish, it’s super buildable with a pillowy texture that sinks in instantly.

Best For Budget: Essence You Better Work! Tinted Day Cream, £3.30

Affordable and incredibly effective, we were amazed by the coverage of this high-street hero. It leaves behind a dewy-looking base that enhances the skin’s texture, rather than masking it.

Best For Sensitive Skin: First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Tint Cream, £20.50

We came across this brand recently when it’s signature Ultra Repair Cream soothed our dry, flaky eczema patches within days. So, when we came across their tinted cream, we were keen to try it. With a slightly lighter formula than the rest, it feels modern but delivers the same smooth, velvety finish you’d expect from a tinted moisturiser. It fills in pores and fine lines for a smooth canvas, while vitamin E and hyaluronic acid hydrate.

Best For Redness: IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness Cream Transforming Natural Beige, £26

Juicy and plumping, IT’s new tinted cream neutralises redness and any uneven texture with peptides, aloe and nourishing avocado. It gently conceals, letting you skip heavy base for a look that’s more natural.

Best For Maximum Coverage: Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser SPF20, £35

You’d be hard-pushed to find a make-up artist that doesn’t swear by this tinted moisturiser. Giving more coverage than the rest, it could easily replace your foundation long-term, with an impressive, suits-all shade range to boot.

Best For Mature Skin: Perricone MD Face Finishing & Firming Tinted Moisturiser, £59

Don’t be put off by the price tag: this is a real pro’s product. It firms the skin with antioxidants and vitamin C, while lending a sophisticated, caramel finish to the skin that’s unbeatable. The thick jar and ‘little goes a long way’ consistency also means it’ll last you for months on end.

Best For Hydration: Pixi H20 Skin Tint, £24

This hydrating tint is essential for anyone with dry skin, who wants their make-up to look radiant and even. It slips on like silk, adds extra glow and has the additional benefits of soothing chamomile and lavender to calm reactive complexions.

Best For Weightless Texture: Stila Lingerie Souffle Skin Perfecting Colour, £30

Brand new to the market, Stila’s soufflé cream feels super satisfying to apply and is made up of botanicals and over 70% water for a texture that’s light as air. Buff in with a brush for subtle coverage that lasts all day without any touch-ups needed.
