These skin tints are lightweight, sheer, and here to enhance your natural beauty without hiding it.
The clean girl makeup trend is in; gone are the days of slapping on full coverage foundations. Not that it’s a terrible thing – but on days when we want a fresh, dewy glow without the full-on coverage of foundation, a skin tint is your best bet. Plus, they’re a lifesaver in hot, humid weather. No more worrying about your foundation melting off your face! Skin tints let your skin breathe and stay comfy all day. And now that brands are producing more shades to cater to a wider market, there’s no stopping you from giving it a try.
Just remember to think of them as your skin’s sidekick, not the superhero. Yup, skin tints provide sheer coverage. So if you have blemishes or pigmentation, it’s best to go in with some concealer and colour corrector on those areas.
