We’ve always loved a good tinted moisturiser – fresh, lightweight coverage that’s breathable and doesn't cover up the skin. And after spending the greater part of the last 18 months at home, a fresh face is what we’re craving; just enough to make us look alive on zoom.
So here we’re rounding up the best lightweight tints for your freshest complexion — luminous, easy coverage products that will leave you with your own skin, only slightly better.
M·A·C Cosmetics Studio Radiance Face & Body Radiant Sheer Foundation
While technically a foundation, the blendable consistency of this iconic formula gives the skin a fresh, natural-but-better finish. It’s luminous but long-wearing, and the colour range is extensive (making it easy to find your perfect match).
ILIA Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40
This tinted serum is like a soft-focus filter for your face. It subtly evens out skin tone, imparts serious luminosity and just makes you look healthier. The fact it also comes with SPF via zinc oxide and skincare-like benefits is a bonus.
Chanel Les Beige Water Fresh Tint
This unique formula is almost like a tint suspended in water that bursts when you sweep it over the skin. It’s fresh and hydrating, while the sheer pigments subtly even out skin tone.
Kosas Tinted Face Oil
Kosas’ Tinted Face Oil is like glossy vacation skin in a bottle. A blend of botanical oils and mineral pigments, you only need a tiny amount to cover your entire face — just use your fingers to blend it in.
Milky and soft, this clean foundation glides over skin like silk. It provides ample coverage without caking, and stays fresh all day long without oxidation.
bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream
If your skin is on the oilier side, this Gel Cream from bareMinerals has a natural finish and featherlight texture, so as to not exacerbate shine. It’s oil-free and has an SPF of 30 for added sun protection, too.
