There are days when foundations and CC creams will be your go-to options for your makeup. But when you want your makeup to be low-key, a skin tint will be the perfect option. These products offer light coverage and make your skin look radiant. 

So, if you’re confused about how these products work and the proper method to use them, look no further. This article has got you covered!

What Is a Skin Tint?

Skin tints are also called tinted moisturisers, which are lightweight skin products. You can consider them a light foundation that feels exceptionally light on your skin. Having a colour or tint, you’ll feel you haven’t applied anything at all! It’s perfect for the no-makeup look.

Offering you coverage and hydration, these products even out your skin tone. It is a fantastic way to hide your imperfections, making your skin look flawless!

Unlike some heavy concealers, tints don’t clog your pores and are often suited for people with oily skin and sensitive skin. It doesn’t feel cakey and provides a natural finish to your skin.

How to Use It Properly

The first step of using a tint is choosing the right one. 

Always choose a tinted moisturiser according to your skin type. If you have an oily or a pimple-prone skin, go for an oil-free composition.

If you spend too much time in the sun, select a product having SPF 30 at least. Or, you can go for one having UVA protection also.

Match Your Skin Tone

After checking your skin type, you need to check if the product matches your skin tone. So, apply it on the side of your face or the back of your hand. Rub it well so that it blends with your skin. 

If it blends perfectly, you won’t see any product on your skin. It’s a sign that you found the right product!

Use Your Fingertips

Skip the brush and your makeup sponge for applying the tint, and use your fingers. 

  • Take a pea-sized amount of tint and rub it evenly on your fingertips. 
  • Then dab it on your cheeks, forehead, under your eyes, and anywhere else you like.
  • Make sure that your hands are actually very clean before this application.

Cover It With a Concealer

You can now use a concealer to cover blemishes on your skin. The best way to go about this is to use a rounded concealer brush. 

  • Use it to even out the makeup under your eyes and the region around your nose. 
  • Make sure to use concealer close to the lash line and any blemishes you would like to cover. 
  • It’s a great way to have a uniform skin colour without going over the top with your makeup.  

Ditch the Finishing Powder

Even if you are tempted to complete your look with a finishing powder, hold that thought. The whole point of using a tint is to rock the no-makeup look, using fewer products. 

So, use your fingertips and the concealer brush to look your best. Just let the tint settle in and see your skin become radiant after a while.

Wrap Up 

To experience the best results, try to maintain a healthy skincare routine. So, wash your face daily, avoid oily junk food and get some exercise every day. It will keep your skin healthy and prevent breakouts and blemishes. 

And with fewer imperfections to hide, you don’t have to go overboard with skin tints. Stay beautiful!
