In summer, a tinted moisturiser is the ideal choice of cover-up. The trick is in finding a tinted moisturiser that isn't shiny.
Tinted moisturiser is a lovely base for summer wear. It's light and natural and works well in hot weather. Foundation can easily look too heavy and thick on a hot, bright summer day. Our usual cover-ups often get cast aside for holidays in favour of a lighter option. However, beating the shiny face look is another difficulty we are facing in the heat.
Tinted moisturisers and BB creams are often rich and creamy. They tend to leave a shine on your skin. In some cases, you might be after that healthy dewy shine. However, if you are already prone to shine or you don't like a greasy feeling on your skin, you will want a more matte finish. Tinted moisturiser can often keep its moist finish all day. It never settles and dries down on the skin. If you find that feeling uncomfortable you might love one of these tinted moisturisers that have a matte finish.
