Tinted Moisturiser vs Foundation – Which is Best For You?

Winter is here bringing with it cold weather as a result you might be suffering with dry skin. The areas that are most likely to be effected is your t-zone and cheeks. It’s a good time to swap your foundation for a tinted moisturiser because they usually contain spf and as they name suggests that are also more moisturising.

If you love a full coverage foundation then this may not be for you, although if you do need extra coverage you can apply concealor to any blemishes before hand. I would always use a foundation for an evening event or wedding as the look will be more suitable for photographs.

There are many benefits of using a tinted moisturiser, a few include.

  1. Quicker to apply because it’s sheer,
  2. You can use your fingers, start from your nose and blend out
  3. Cheaper
  4. Will even out your skin tone
  5. Dewy finish gives a great radiant result
  6. Light weight coverage, won’t block pores or look cakey
  7. They come in a tube so less wastage and it’s lighter to carry
  8. Great for young girls who want to wear foundaton but don’t need it yet

There are lots of products available on the market, however as a Makeup Artist in Manchester the one that I use on my clients is Laura Mercier ‘Tinted Mosturiser spf 20’ (£33). This also comes in an oil free formula, perfect if your looking for a matt finish and you have an oily skin type.

If you’ve never tried one and don’t want to spend a fortune or you’re on a budget Nivea do a great alternative, which also comes in different forumlas for dry skin or normal combination, (£9.99)
