Sheer Beauty: Tinted Moisturisers

Tinted Moisturizer is my beauty STAPLE!

I use one on myself everyday,  and use it alone or layered with other base products (concealer, foundation etc) for male and female clients. I think a thin coat can even out skintone, and often you can pat a bit extra in the areas that may need a bit more coverage. All the formulas I chose have SPF, protecting your skin from damaging overexposure to sun.

For best results, apply your normal moisturizer first, let set a few minutes and then do the tinted moisturizer. You generally do not need to powder as this would eliminate the lovely dewy finish.

Here are my top 3!

1. Laura Mercier: this classic choice comes in a fantastic range of colours and in regular, oil free, or radiant formula. It is slightly a thicker consistency, but I really love it. I often use it on men as a base and sometimes dilute it with a primer or light moisturiser.

2. Trish McEvoy BB Tinted Moisturiser: This lovely formula is a recent discovery for me,  ½ pump will do and it lasts ages. It is lightweight, has a lovely texture and glowy/perfecting finish. Be warned, you may have a sharp intake of breath at the price, but I think it is worth it.

3.  Aveda Mineral Tintend Moisturiser: I really love the texture of this tinted moisturiser. A little goes a long way and I find the mid tones have a good amount of beige that give a great neutral skin tone.
