If you’re straight out of lockdown and swiftly into the office, you might not be ready to return to full coverage make-up — especially in the UAE’s soaring heat — but, after two months indoors, low vitamin D levels and pandemic-related stress your skin is probably in need of a boost. The quick-fire solution? A low maintenance tinted moisturiser that gives you an effortless, natural looking glow.
Tinted moisturisers are designed to enhance your complexion, instead of covering it up and help to create the perfect summer beauty look with a barely-there finish. Blending make-up with skincare, the best tinted moisturisers should smooth out imperfections, colour correct your complexion, boost hydration, add a hint of radiance and protect you from the sun with built-in SPF.
Whether it’s Laura Mercier’s oil-free formula for acne-prone skin or Philosophy’s slightly matte finish for those who need a little more coverage, there’s a perfect formula for different types of skin. From clean beauty brand Ilia and its pigmented super serum, to the ultra-fine texture and luminous finish of Chanel’s Les Beiges tint, find the tinted moisturiser that’s tailored to your skin in the gallery above — and emerge from lockdown with a beach-worthy glow.
