As the world continues to turn and we step outside the house with our face mask not everybody is quite excited to lay on the heavy makeup underneath. From going barefaced to full-faced of makeup is a big jump. While one might enjoy getting ready for online meetings or a short run to the office or even hang out with friends, full coverage foundations and heavy-duty concealers might not always be the right choice. In this case, a tinted moisturiser does the trick. It works wonders in achieving the perfect no-makeup makeup look and letting your natural beauty shine through. Plus if your skin is starved for hydration it works double duty to enhance your complexion while perfectly blending makeup.
