The sweat-inducing summer heat may be a welcome respite from the perilous winter weather, but it does pose a challenge for makeup-loving women. It’s that time of the year when our beauty worries shift from dry, chapped skin to sweating off our entire makeup. In tune with how our wardrobe lightens up with the arrival of spring, so does our beauty arsenal. For the Fashion Glamour team, it only means that it’s time to chuck out our foundation tubes for a more spring-perfect beauty product: tinted moisturizers.
Clarins’ super restorative tinted cream arrives in four shades: sand, tea, lychee and honey. Formulated to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, even and illuminate the complexion, it’s no wonder this product has been listed as one of the best tinted moisturizers in the market today.
Shiseido’s tinted moisture protection product is formulated with Light Control Powder “to minimize the appearance of pores, fine lines, dullness and uneven tone.” While heavier foundations tend to block pores, this product is also non-comedogenic besides being an excellent pseudo-foundation for the summer. Shiseido has this available in light, medium, medium deep and deep shades.
Enhance your skin with this sheer tint moisturizer from Estee Lauder. It’s ideal for daywear without the heavy feeling that liquid or cream foundations leave. What separates this product further from the rest is its anti-oxidant capability, which fights free radical damage leading to visible aging. The brand says this will work on every skin types. As for us, we love its cucumber scent.
The flawless finish this mineral tinted moisturizer from Elizabeth Arden is perhaps the reason why many adore this products. It contains microlight minerals, which softens the look of fine lines; vitamins A, C and E; and Jojoba esters, which locks in the moisture in the skin, among many other great ingredients. The product is available in fair, light, medium and deep shades.
Dermalogica also leads the pack in terms of the most favored tinted moisturizers with their Sheer Tint Moisture SPF15 product, which is available in light, medium and dark tones. Lightweight and oil-free, Dermalogica could not have created a more perfect alternative to women’s everyday foundation.
