Okay, please tell me I’m not the only one who’s hella envious of Alia Bhatt. Nah, this isn’t related to Ranbir, we promise! We’re talking about the radiance she exudes in every picture on the ‘gram. Not only does her skin look super healthy but it’s almost always glowing, even with makeup on. Now, what could really be the reason, apart from a deeply nourishing skincare routine? Enter tinted moisturisers!

Notice how her base makeup is never ever cakey? Well, gone are the days when heavy foundations were a go-to for actresses and on some days for us too! In the past few years, much to our delight, we’ve seen healthy skin take the centre stage as opposed to a cakey base. It’s always great to let your skin breathe instead of layering on a gazillion base products. A tinted moisturiser is one hell of an underrated beauty product that happens to be a hybrid between a foundation and a moisturiser. Think— of a moisturiser that offers you light coverage or a foundation that deeply hydrates your skin. Sounds pretty cool, no? Who wouldn’t like a base product that gives them the perfect balance between coverage, glow and hydration? 

Here are 6  tinted moisturisers that offer a natural skin-like finish—

Wet N Wild, Bare Focus Tinted Hydrator

The Bare Focus Tinted Hydrator from Wet n Wild is a great drugstore option if you’re not in the mood to splurge. It has an oil-free formula which comes infused with hyaluronic acid and tinted squalane. This tinted moisturiser offers buildable coverage that ranges from sheer to medium, making it perfect for everyday use! Its semi-matte finish makes it an optimal base product for the days you want to layer some makeup on.

Huda Beauty, Glowish Multidew Skin Tint

If you’re looking for a product that’s going to be your second skin, look no further than Huda Beauty’s Glowish Multidew Skin Tint. It’s a moisture-infused product that does a stellar job at hydrating your skin whilst blurring out pores and blemishes. With light-reflecting pearl pigments, you’re not going to need a highlighter with this one. However, we must warn you that this product is a little extra dewy, so it might not be the best choice for our oily-skinned lovelies!

Innisfree, Simplelabel Tinted Moisturiser

Okay, surprise! Not only is Innisfree’s Simplelabel Tinted Moisturiser a base product, but it also offers sun protection. We all love a multi-tasker here, don’t we? With Jeju hydrangea leaf extracts that soothe and heal the skin, you’re getting the best of both worlds. This tinted moisturiser gives your skin an extremely natural finish and also corrects an uneven skin tone.

Smashbox, Halo Healthy Glow Tinted Moisturiser

Another versatile product in the house that boasts of 3-in-one benefits. Yep, the Halo Healthy Glow Tinted Moisturiser by Smashbox acts like a primer, a tinted moisturiser and sunscreen too! A supremely light-as-air formula that’s oozing with ingredients such as rose extracts, niacinamide, goji berries, peptides and hyaluronic acid— your skin definitely needs this one. It happens to be humidity and sweat-resistant, so you don’t really have to worry about your pores being clogged.

Rare Beauty, Positive Light Tinted Moisturiser

If I’m being brutally honest, almost each and every beauty product I’ve tried out from Rare Beauty has been magic in a bottle. And so is the Positive Light Tinted Moisturiser! With the goodness of Vitamin E and a built-in broad-spectrum sunscreen, this tinted moisturiser offers an even skin tone instantly by minimising the look of pores and giving it a naturally glowing finish. What I absolutely love about this one, in particular, is how easy it is to apply with your fingers too!

Tarte, Maracuja Hydrating Tinted Moisturiser

Brimming with maracuja oil, a skinvigorating ingredient that promises firmer skin and our favourite hydrating hero, hyaluronic acid— Tarte’s Maracuja Hydrating Tinted Moisturiser is a clear winner. With 12-hour hydration and soft coverage that can be built up according to your liking, this product does the job of infusing moisture into your skin and helping you cover any imperfections at the same time. A little product goes a long way with this one!
