Tinted moisturizer can be used as an alternative to foundation in the summer or by those looking for a more natural, fresh look. When applied properly, tinted moisturizer creates a flawless complexion with the added benefit of moisturizing. It can be worn alone or combined with other makeup for a more finished look.
Things You'll Need
Cleanse the face and neck area. When applying any type of makeup, it is always best to start with a clean face. Thoroughly dry the skin with a towel before applying makeup.
Dot a small amount of concealer over blemishes. Choose a concealer that is one shade lighter than the skin tone for the best results. Tinted moisturizer is more sheer than a foundation, so concealing blemishes is especially important for a flawless look.
Dab the moisturizer over any blemishes or red spots first. This will help to create a more even skin tone. Blend the moisturizer into the skin working from the center of the face outward using a foam wedge. You can use your fingers if you do not have a foam wedge.
Completely blend the moisturizer along the hairline and neckline. This creates a more natural look and avoids the fake look that is a common problem for women who do not properly apply foundation or tinted moisturizer.
Complete the look with a light dusting of powder. The powder helps to set the moisturizer and eliminates shiny or oily spots on the skin.
Many tinted moisturizers have SPF for added protection from the sun. If you are spending time outside, look for a moisturizer with an SPF of 15 or greater.
