The ideal alternative to heavy foundations and powders during the welcome warmer weather, opting for a tinted moisturiser will not only keep your skin hydrated, but finding the right one can transform you’re complexion from dry to dewy in an instant, creating the ultimate barely-there look.
And with plenty to choose from, we’ve rounded up a few of our top picks to get you started. So whatever it is you’re after, we’re pretty sure you’ll find it here…

This one from Nars ticks all the right boxes when it comes to choosing the right tinted moisturiser. Not only is it oil-free, but it’s packed full of enriching minerals to nourish and hydrate the skin, creating subtle, natural looking coverage that’s both light and long-lasting. And the best part? It’s SPF 30.
Estee Lauder DayWear SPF 15
To tackle fine lines and wrinkles, Estee Lauder’s Daywear Sheer Tint is a great choice. Hydrating the skin to reduce signs of ageing, it will protect against the sun with SPF 15, and has anti-oxidant ingredients to actually improve overall skin tone, too. A winning combination.

When a foundation feels a little too heavy, this tinted moisturiser is the next best thing.

With it’s super-light SPF ingredient and oil-free formula, this is ideal for those suffering with problem skin. Still providing good coverage, it will create a barely-there, dewy look without feeling leaving your skin feeling greasy.
