FAQs on tinted moisturiser
Tinted moisturiser is a great lightweight alternative to foundation. It gives a sheer finish and a lighter coverage, making it perfect for day time wear. However many women are unsure about tinted moisturiser and reluctant to make the switch from foundation. Here we answer some of your frequently asked questions about tinted moisturiser.
How does tinted moisturiser differ from foundation?
Foundations are available in a range of coverage options, from light to medium to full. Tinted moisturisers, on the other hand, provide a light, sheer coverage.
Is tinted moisturiser suitable for all skin types?
Yes, tinted moisturiser is suitable for all skin types. When using heavy foundation on mature skin, it can settle into lines and wrinkles and draw attention to them. Tinted moisturiser, on the other hand, rarely gives this caked look.
If you have problem skin, you may be tempted to opt for a full foundation to cover up spots and imperfections. However, many make up artists recommend that you actually use a tinted moisturiser and than a concealer rather than a heavy foundation and then a concealer. Again, this is to avoid a caked look and to keep your base as fresh and natural as possible.
How do I apply tinted moisturiser?
Tinted moisturiser is applied in the same way that foundation is applied. You can use either a make up brush or your fingers to apply the tinted moisturiser in circular motions. Like foundation, you should apply the tinted moisturiser first and then add concealer and/or pressed powder if needed.
Can I make my own tinted moisturiser?
Yes, you can make your own tinted moisturiser by mixing one part foundation to one part of your favourite facial moisturiser cream. Mix thoroughly and shake before using every time. We recommend that you carry out a sensitivity test on your jaw line 24 hours before wearing the tinted moisturiser for the first time.
