How to Apply Tinted Moisturizers

Tinted moisturiser can be used as an alternative to foundation in the summer or by those looking for a more natural, fresh look.

  1. 1

    Cleanse the face and neck area. When applying any type of make-up, it is always best to start with a clean face. Thoroughly dry the skin with a towel before applying make-up.

  2. 2

    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 moisturiser is more sheer than a foundation, so concealing blemishes is especially important for a flawless look.

  3. 3

    Dab the moisturiser over any blemishes or red spots first. This will help to create a more even skin tone. Blend the moisturiser into the skin working from the centre of the face outward using a foam wedge. You can use your fingers if you do not have a foam wedge.

  4. 4

    Completely blend the moisturiser 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 moisturiser.

  5. 5

    Complete the look with a light dusting of powder. The powder helps to set the moisturiser and eliminates shiny or oily spots on the skin.

Tips and warnings

  • Many tinted moisturisers have SPF for added protection from the sun. If you are spending time outside, look for a moisturiser with an SPF of 15 or greater.
