Contouring layers of makeup is not a good look in the heat! Memorial Day is this weekend and with that comes the unofficial start of summer! Here are some tinted moisturizers that leave you glowing with a natural look and some added UV protection to match.
Obagi Skincare’s Tinted Warm is a high end moisturizer worth the cost. It has a broad spectrum protection of SPF 50 and goes on very smoothly. It is not at all oily or pore-clogging. I received this as a sample and once it finished I purchased right away because it is THAT GOOD. At $44, the creamy 3 oz. tube definitely last because it gives a lot of coverage without having to use too much of it. Downside? They only make two tones, cool and warm, so make sure to try out the color before purchasing.
Laura Mercier is by far the most popular tinted moisturizer on the market. For women of color, they offer a great selection of shades that don’t look chalky and blend nicely. The SPF protection is 20 and it is lightweight enough to wear to the beach! Caution: make sure to get the oil-free version for the summer, as the regular moisturizer tends to add shine.
I’m not exactly sure how E.L.F. products are so inexpensive, yet offer great quality. Nonetheless, I hope they don’t stop bringing on the great variety for us beauty junkies! This tinted moisturizer offers an SPF of 20 along with a list of amazing ingredients that include aloe, cucumber, and Vitamins A, C, and E.
Make sure to add any one of these tinted moisturizers to your beach bags and toss the make up filled bags for the warmer months! Happy Summer ladies!
