We’re at that odd time of year where it’s still jacket weather but oddly humid, which means it’s time to alter our makeup for the new season. Rather than letting your make-up?cover every pore, it’s about naturally enhancing the beautiful features God gave you with something lighter. This all starts with a base and in this ever-changing humidity, that means letting your skin shine through -without actual oily shine. Many are gearing up for holiday season and will be looking for a fluid promising a dewy glow as opposed to one that will cover the skin like a blank canvas. The best way to do this is via a tinted moisturiser, CC or BB cream (all in the same family, their function is to even skin tone and hydrate – it’s simply a case of finding the right product for your skin’s needs). Here are five we love:
Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturiser, €48
If you have oil-prone skin, you’ll love this old reliable. The lightweight formula makes application a breeze, and the product doesn’t cause breakouts for acne-prone skin (a major plus). Think coverage without clogging the pores. The shades are flattering and skin looks real as opposed to a sheen effect.?
Estee Lauder Double Wear All Day Glow BB Cream, €38
Technically a BB cream, this is better than a tinted moisturiser and deserves a place on our list. This lightweight, oil-free BB cream stays put for hours and adds a luminous glow to the skin. It’s pricey, but the high-factor SPF 30 and the fact that it looks as good as a foundation (minus the heavy coverage) means you’re getting your money’s worth.
Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser, €38
Great for darker skin tones, this one delivers excellent coverage and colour, albeit without the treatment benefits of some of the others on our list. If you’re looking for a tint that?promises a little more than that, Nars is the one for you.
Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturiser, €37.50
This one moisturises, protects and provides coverage in one swoop. Particularly beneficial for very dry skin.
NYX Tinted Moisturiser, €6.70
Oil-free, easy-to-blend and with subtle?coverage,?this brilliant budget buy is ideal skin that may be prone to break outs.
