Tinted make-up is your cheat for easy, summer skin

Tinted make-up, the middle ground between bare skin and a little coverage, is your WFH saviour for a sheer hint of weightless glow.

tinted make-up

Right now, if you’re among those still considering make-up as part of your daily routine, or looking for easy staples for your beauty comeback kit, you might be looking for something a little lighter than the full coverage you once relied upon. Tints are that happy medium between a bare face and sheer wash of colour to warm up your complexion and lightly enhance with the absolute minimum effort. They’re also that lightweight, hydrating base you crave in summer months.

Hydrating oils in Urban Decay Stay Naked Hydromaniac Tinted Glow Hydrator, €32, leave skin glowing all day, while feeling like a second skin and looking like your skin, but better. It comes in 12 flexible shades, with a formula that contains kombucha filtrate and marula oil for a long-wearing, lasting radiance.

If you’re spending all day in front of the computer and just want to look alive on Zoom calls, Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Le Teint Foundation, €44, has all the sheer, breathable radiance of the beloved Touche Éclat pen. It’s a lightweight, medium coverage that lasts and gives the skin a hit of hydration for a glowing finish.

For a light but buildable formula, try the comfortable Shiseido Synchro Skin Radiant Lifting Foundation, €49.50, in 30 shades, to enhance skin without overpowering, with 24 hours of glowy hydration.

Just in need of concealing dark circles and blemishes? The new Bareminerals Original Liquid Concealer, €26.50, has a weightless, natural-skin finish, creamy texture and soothing, hydrating white water lily extract in the formula, to hydrate your skin instantly and over time. Dab lightly with a fingertip for barely-there coverage and skin that looks like skin.

If you’re looking for a bit more coverage, Clarins Everlasting Foundation, €35, in 25 shades, is both high coverage, matte and incredibly comfortably lightweight. It lasts all day, doesn’t crease and hits that tricky balance between matte and hydrating.

The new Ordinary Concealer, €5.80, in 36 shades, is highly spreadable, meaning you’ll only need the tiniest dot of it. It’s heavy coverage but leaves skin looking like skin and it won’t settle into your pores or fine lines. The packaging is innovative too, thanks to a thin nozzle applicator that will help you be extra precise with your application. It’s the perfect coverage for a two-minute pre-Zoom call refresh.

A combination of summer and time off from foundation might have you looking for a lightweight, comfortable base, and if so, you won’t find better than the new Sculpted by Aimee Connolly Tint & Glow, €25. It has a glowyness to it that’s not glittery or shiny, just gleaming, hydrated skin, with redness and texture lightly veiled – all the makings of a perfect summer foundation.
