In the current climate, the contents of our make-up bags are undeniably shifting—and tinted moisturisers look set to become a cornerstone.
In the age of Zoom meetings and virtual Friday-night drinks, a full face of foundation feels stifling. In our new, reduced beauty routines, there is little place for heavy formulas or complex techniques. What’s more, as the lines between skincare and make-up continue to blur, everything on our shrinking shelves must offer multi-faceted benefits: now, a foundation that offers little more than a mask seems old fashioned.
This shift in thinking has opened the floor to a new school of tinted moisturisers: hybrid products that offer pollution shields, sun protection and skin-conditioning benefits alongside a veil of unifying, brightening coverage—not to mention the fact that, crucially, skin still looks like skin.
Here, see the 10 best tinted moisturisers for a lighter look—and a lighter make-up bag.
