Whilst so many of us are finding ourselves working from home, chained to the unflattering blue lights of our laptop screens and wishing there was another way, there’s never been more of a need for ‘no makeup’makeup. To achieve this deliberately dewy look, tinted moisturisers are key so we’ve rounded up the best of the best, and specificallythe best for brown skin tones.
Top of our list is the incredible Your Skin But Better CC+ Oil-Free Matte with SPF 40, from £32. Don’t be fooled by the suspiciously small shade selection, for medium skin tones the Medium Tan and Tan shades provide the perfect balance of brightening and bronzing. The silky texture feels incredible when applied with your hands, and the strength of coverage generated by a mere few pumps is the reason It Cosmetics has our vote. Not to mention the added SPF40 protection!
Next on the rankings is the Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturiser with SPF20, from £35. This all in one beauty staple comes in 15 shades and is particularly effective for cooler tones. Providing an even layer of sheer coverage, this product is perfect for those aiming for a quick way to create the appearance of an even skin tone.
Third on our list is the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream, from £29. Available in 20 shades and with SPF30 protection, this mineral formula is super well suited to those with blemish-prone skin as it’s unlikely to clog pores. We’re a fan of anything with ‘hydrating’ in the name, but this gel cream features key ingredient squalene – an exceptional hydrator known for drawing moisture from the air and trapping it long enough for it to be fully absorbed by skin.
Finally, we have the NARS Cosmetics Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser SPF30, from £31. Another oil-free formula, perfect for this time of year and suitable for all skin types, the Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser aims to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and dark spots within four weeks – something those with tanned or darker skin tones frequently battle.
