The New Hydrating Skin Tint Our Beauty Editor Loves

Hourglass is already known for its glow-giving make-up – and its new Hydrating Skin Tint looks set to be another bestseller. Not only does it offer lightweight, buildable coverage, it improves the health of your complexion over time thanks to brightening and nourishing ingredients like hyaluronic acid and plant-based squalane. Here’s a bit more about the formula, how best to use it and why our beauty editor swears by it…

Created in partnership with HOURGLASS

About Hourglass New Hydrating Skin Tint:

If you’re after coverage that blurs imperfections but doesn’t look or feel heavy on the skin, this new Veil Hydrating Skin Tint is for you. The ultimate hybrid product, it’s full of nourishing, hydrating ingredients that are clinically proven to instantly boost your skin's moisture levels by 52%, resulting in a complexion that looks healthier and plump. 

Both the texture and pigment are thin, sheer and unobtrusive, making the formula easy to work with. Use it to even everything out without going overboard – in other words, it’s the definition of the no-make-up make-up look.

How To Use It For A Golden Glow:

The ‘golden-hour make-up’ trend is one that’s currently going viral on TikTok – think glossy, warm, healthy-looking skin that doesn’t look as if it’s caked with make-up. That’s where Hourglass’ new skin tint comes in – the perfect base for creating a believable, soft glow and smoothing unwanted tones for a dewy finish.

To get your coverage right, we recommend using this with a brush. That way, you’ll really work the formula into your skin for a more natural-looking finish. Try a curved foundation brush – like the Hourglass Ambient Soft Glow Foundation Brush – to push the formula into all the contours of your skin. If you’re after just a hint of colour, use your fingers. Just ensure you massage the formula in properly, just like you would a moisturiser.

Why Our Senior Beauty Editor Loves It:

“This is the ultimate make-up and skincare hybrid. Lightweight and instantly hydrating, just a small amount buffed into the skin provides a light dose of radiant coverage that’s perfect for this time of year. It has a kind-to-the-skin formula that’s full of nourishing ingredients to improve your complexion over time. I love how it revives my dull complexion, smoothing the surface to give it a more energised and luminous look. Ideal if you’re looking for that second-skin finish.”

Its Shades & Proven Benefits To Note:

The 18-shade range has something for everyone. Versatile and flexible, the tones deliver flawless coverage, while the formula itself melts into skin and immediately feels hydrating and smooth.

As for the known benefits, hyaluronic acid floods skin with moisture for a smoother finish, while meadowfoam seed oil uses fatty acids to strengthen skin and give it a suppler look. Results show that after eight hours wear, 96% said skin felt more nourished, while 96% also agreed their skin felt more hydrated. Finally, plant-based squalane is one of the best ingredients for stimulating collagen and minimising issues like redness and water loss within your skin.
