Tinted skin moisturizers explained


Applying make up during the warm spring and summer months is completely different to applying make up in winter. Summer time is the time of light and warmth which means you need to show fresh and beautifully radiant skin. If you don’t have fresh beautiful skin, as hardly any of us over the age of 12 do, we have to use the cosmetic tools available to us to make it look beautiful. Usually we use foundation to hide any flaws in our skin complexion. However, you may want to experiment with the best of a foundation and moisturizer mixed in one – a tinted skin moisturizer.

Tinted skin moisturizers are an excellent development on traditional foundation. They do twice as much work on our skin by giving delicate coverage to even out skin tone, and increase the moisture levels in the skin. Alleviating moisturizer instead of a tinted moisturizer is not recommended. Using a lighter type of skin moisturizer or using it more sparingly is a better idea. For a beautiful natural tone of skin, apply tinted skin moisturizer and dust skin with a loose powder. You will look fresh and natural as though you are not wearing makeup.
