Whether you already wear a foundation and you’re on the hunt for a lighter form of coverage for summer, or you’re looking to subtly enhance your skin, tinted moisturiser is the way forward. Designed to add a healthy glow to the skin alongside a surge of hydration, it’s one of the most subtle, yet effective ways of improving your skin’s appearance. With warmer weather approaching, tinted moisturiser is the best option to allow your skin to breathe. Here you can find out everything you need to know about tinted moisturiser for men.
Foundation and tinted moisturiser are rather similar, yet they have some important differences to take into account. Foundation is a cosmetic-based product with a much heavier finish, whereas tinted moisturiser focuses more on skincare benefits and has lighter coverage. Tinted moisturisers are made to hydrate the skin and add less colour pigment to the surface.
When applied incorrectly, tinted moisturiser can leave your skin looking patchy. To make sure you get an even finish, follow the below steps.
By cleansing the skin, it removes any dirt and impurities sat on the skin which can leave it looking dull. The Jack Black Pure Clean Daily Facial Cleanser draws our build-up of dirt and oil within the pores to reveal a clearer complexion.
After cleansing, it’s important to use a toner to eliminate any remaining impurities. A high quality toner such as the L:A Bruket No. 099 Face Toner is a good choice. Made with organic ingredients, it nourishes and soothes skin for long-lasting comfort.
Once the skin has been prepped, take a concealer and apply a small amount on imperfections. Feel free to add a small amount underneath the eye to hide dark circles too. Unsure of how to use concealer? Check out our guide to applying concealer.
Apply a small amount of tinted moisturiser to a dry makeup sponge, start at the forehead and blend outwards. Start with a small amount as you can then apply more if needed, rather than over-doing it.
The Perricone MD Face Finishing Moisturiser Tint is an oil-free, lightweight tinted moisturiser. Containing SPF30, it protects the skin from UVA and UVB exposure whilst providing a warm, natural-looking tint to the skin. Formulated using Alpha Lipoic Acid and vitamin C, this antioxidant packed moisturiser boosts collagen production. Fast absorbing and deeply hydrating, it nourishes the skin and smoothes lines and wrinkles for healthier looking skin. Upon application, the unique pigment capsules slowly release a tint which adjusts to your individual skin tone for a perfect match.
The Dr. Hauschka Tinted Day Cream is a dermatologically-tested tinted moisturiser for normal, dry and sensitive skin. Combining a blend of avocado, almond oils, beeswax, St. John’s Wort and quince seeds, this fast absorbing moisturiser re-balances the skin to prevent dryness and boost elasticity. The skin’s overall radiance will be enhanced immediately whilst remaining hydrated all day long. It’s also free from mineral oils, parabens, silicone, synthetic fragrances, dyes and preservatives.
The MONU Perfecting Tint SPF15 Moisturiser boosts skin’s radiance for brighter, softer skin. Enriched with blackcurrant seed oil and Hyaluronic Acid, it locks in moisture for up to 24 hours. Using Soft Focus Technology, a silica-coated powder smoothes skin and absorbs excess sebum for a silky finish. It provides a colour tint to the face using iron oxide mineral pigment for a natural glow. Non-greasy and containing SPF15, it shields skin from UV rays, preventing signs of both premature ageing and sun damage.
The Gatineau Perfection Ultime Anti-Ageing Complexion Cream SPF30 is a deeply hydrating, lightweight, brightening tinted moisturiser. Not only does it provide a sheer wash of radiance to the skin, its protective ingredients defend the skin from external aggressors. Using a unique peptide complex, it plumps and enhances the skins elasticity for younger looking features. Liquorice root extract, Hyaluronic Acid, argireline, SPF30 and vitamin B3 are used to make the skin smooth and radiant for an extended period of time.
The He-Shi One Day Tan is a little bit different from the others as it is more of a wash off bronzer rather than a tinted moisturiser. However, it still enhances the skin tone whilst thoroughly moisturising the skin. This quick-drying gel is non-sticky and has a gentle, uplifting fragrance, designed to refresh your skin and your spirits. You can use this on the face and the body to give yourself a natural golden glow with a surge of hydration. Remember to wash at the end of the day to remove the bronzer.
