5 glow-getting tinted moisturisers

Coming out of lockdown with a healthy glow but haven't worn make up on yonks? Ditch the foundation for a lightweight tinted moisturiser. Here's 5 on the Muddy radar.

If you’ve spent the last 10 weeks sashaying from sun lounger to desk via Zoom, the idea of meeting people IRL may spark a sudden sense of panic. Make-up free for weeks, only properly dressed from the waist up – sartorial standards have slipped. Plus wearing a full face in this heat could cause a make-up meltdown not seen since Alice Cooper took to the stage. To ease us in gently we’ve rounded up the best tinted moisturisers to nail that ‘barely there’ look we all need right now.

Laura Mercier

Make-up meets skincare with Laura Mercier’s oil-free tinted moisture. Beauty pros love thistriple threat product – lightweight, hydrating and blurs your skin’s imperfections. Not the highest sun protection with SPF20 but it does come in 15 shades.
