Tinted Skincare

Tinted skincare combines the benefits of skincare with a touch of color. It’s a hybrid approach that aims to provide both skincare benefits and a subtle coverage. These products typically offer hydration, sun protection, and a sheer tint of color to even out the complexion. They can provide a lightweight alternative to traditional foundation, allowing the skin to look more polished while still appearing natural. Tinted skincare products often contain beneficial ingredients like antioxidants, vitamins, and SPF to protect and nourish the skin.

One of the advantages of tinted skincare is it’s versatility. It can be used as a standalone product for those who prefer a minimal makeup look or as a base for further makeup application. The lightweight formula allows the skin to breathe and keeps it feeling comfortable throughout the day.

Tinted Serums

Tinted serums are a type of skincare product that combines the advantages of a serum with a hint of color or tint. Their purpose is to offer hydration, nourishment, and other skincare benefits while also providing a sheer coverage or color correction to even out the skin tone. Tinted serums are typically lightweight and easy to blend, making them ideal for individuals who prefer a natural and minimal makeup look. They can be used on their own or as a base for foundation or other makeup products. Tinted serums offer the coverage of a foundation or tinted moisturizer while containing ingredients such as antioxidants, vitamins, and hyaluronic acid to provide additional skincare benefits. 

One of the most popular tinted serums on the market at the moment is ILIA’s  Super Serum Skin Tint with SPF 40.

Tinted Sunscreen

Tinted sunscreen is specifically formulated to offer a hint of color while providing comprehensive sun protection against both UVA and UVB rays. These sunscreens are lightweight, non-greasy, and can be used as an alternative to regular sunscreens and foundation. 

Tinted Lip Balms

Tinted lip balms not only moisturize the lips but also add a touch of color. One of my favorite lip tints is Peripera Ink the Velvet Lip Tint. I purchased the RED IT NUDE combination kit, which is ideal for keeping near my desk while working remotely. It’s perfect for quickly applying before a video conference! Interestingly, I came across these products when a coworker wore them during one of our weekly calls. I decided to try them right away and I’m really happy with my purchase.

Tinted Moisturizers

Tinted moisturizers function as both a moisturizer and a foundation. They are lightweight, providing moderate coverage that helps even out skin tone while keeping the skin hydrated. I’m a huge fan of tinted moisturizers and have purchased them for years as I’m not a huge fan of heavier makeup foundations.

My absolute favorite tinted moisturizer was EveryHue Beauty with SPF 25, by Gizelle Bryant from Real Housewives of Atlanta. EveryHue Beauty was a beauty brand that focused on providing makeup and skincare products for people of all skin tones, with a particular emphasis on catering to women of color. The brand was known for its inclusive approach to beauty products. It unfortunately went out of business after the COVID-19 global pandemic due to manufacturing and supply issues.

My latest replacement product that I’ve been enjoying is NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 20 sunscreen. I purchased the color: Cuzco, which reminds me of Emperor Kuzco from The Emperor’s New Groove, one of my favorite Disney movies! My second trial brand was Laura Mercier’s Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 20. I purchased the color: 5W1/Tan.


Overall, tinted skincare offers a convenient and effortless way to enhance your complexion while providing skincare benefits. It’s a popular choice for those seeking a more natural and low-maintenance approach to their beauty routine.

No matter your choice: au-naturale, a naturalistic look, or full glam, always feel confident in embracing your natural beauty, as it is a true reflection of your authentic self. True beauty radiates from within and is not defined by societal standards. Celebrate your individuality, be confident, and let your inner light shine. Self-love and self-acceptance are the most beautiful qualities one can possess.
