You Can Look Amazing!
Tinted moisturizer is a makeup artist complexion secret that is now out in the open! It’s a good thing too, because this is one product that really does do miracles for your skin. It moisturizes, covers imperfections, and gives you a youthful glow. You can mix up your own or do it the easy way – grab one of the pro favorites and put it to use for you.
Tinted Moisturizer Face Products
Tinted moisturizers are basically foundation a moisturizer mixed together. Foundation, as you know, is a base with mineral mica pigments. Makeup artists created the first tinted moisturizers by mixing together their favorite foundation makeup with a little moisturizer to make a sheer tint for use on models.
Sheer makeup is meant for skin that is already in good condition. Tinted moisturizer isn’t for covering acne or discoloration. The work best for just evening out the skin tone.
They are the perfect product for creating natural makeup looks, but there are some new products out there that actually do give coverage. The final result? Amazing skin! Your skin will look better than real.
“Tinted moisturizer is sheer makeup perfection!”
Best Tinted Moisturizer
To find the best tinted moisturizer for your skin start by assessing these three things:
1. How much coverage you need?
2. How much moisture you really need?
3. Do you need a product with an SPF 15 or higher?
Leave it to the professional cosmetic chemists to create several lines that deliver superior results. This is one of my favorite products to try out and I can tell you that there is a big difference when it comes to coverage and how these creamy foundation products feel on your skin.
Some tinted moisturizer products deliver more coverage than others. Listed below are three excellent tinted moisturizers that I think you’ll be pleased with. Select the one that’s best for you!
Top Tinted Moisturizer Products
Stila Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 – Stila offers a hydrating product that also protects your skin. The pigments in this one give you a very sheer coverage, but it does leave your skin looking evenly toned. This is a matte finish when it dries. If you love to to sunless tan, then I think you’ll find this one works well. Pass on the lighter medium shade – it’s a little too pink unless you have pink in your complexion. If you have darker skin or a deep tan complexion then try the dark. It’s a great shade.
Olay Definity Color Recapture – If it’s moisture you need then this is the product that will deliver it. It has super sheer illuminating coverage that’s perfect for dry skin. You’ll get the glow with a minimum of coverage. It’s great for makeup for mature women with good skin, but if you have normal or oily skin, or discoloration, then pass on this product. Give it to your mom and get the Stila product or the Napolean Perdis Product.
Napolean Perdis NP Set Memory Foundation – This is a personal favorite of mine for this reason – it looks simply incredible on the skin. It contains a higher concentration of pigment which means that it covers imperfections and even some discoloration. That’s something that most tinted moisturizers can’t do, yet it still gives that healthy glow like you see in summer makeup looks. For this reason it’s a Makeup Notebook Favorite and I keep two of the colors in my own kit. One note: I find the shades run dark. In fact, Set 3 is light/medium and I find it actually looks like a golden tan. So choose lighter on this product.
Once you’ve found the perfect tinted moisturizer for you – buy two of the same product. One that is your color and one that is a little darker. Why? Because this way you can have the perfect foundation makeup color anytime you want just by mixing.
