Tinted moisturizers allow you to prime your skin for makeup without messing with your natural skin tone. While there are many choices for moisturizers out there, it’s good to know which ones stand out. So today, we’re listing down some of the best tinted moisturizers for different skin types to help you choose the best one for you.
7 Tinted Moisturizers to Give Your Skin a Healthy Glow
1. NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30
One of NARS’ best tinted moisturizers ever, the Pure Radiant comes with an SPF rating of 30 and uses a lightweight formula encouraging easy application. The thickness ensures excellent coverage with every use. Its non-comedogenic formulation makes sure that your pores can still breathe despite the moisturizer. However, extremely oily skin types might want to steer away from this particular tinted moisturizer.
2. Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer

As far as BB creams go, you wouldn’t think that any of them would be tinted moisturizers. The Amazonian Clay from Tarte uses a creamy and highly hydrating formula for many skin types. It has a lightweight formula, which doesn’t make you feel sticky upon application. This moisturizer gives off a nice, dew-like finish, giving your skin a nice glow upon use. It has a number of shades to choose from to fit your skin color. The only downside is its low SPF 20 rating, which is insufficient sun protection in our book.
3. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20
If you’re looking for tinted moisturizers with a bit more longevity, check out this moisturizer from Laura Mercier. This pretty little number is highly absorbent and adds a healthy but subtle glow to your skin. The buildable coverage allows you to get more out of your product. It’s formulated to be smooth on your skin. It also blends really easily with your makeup. A downside to this great moisturizer is its low SPF rating of 20. We highly recommend that you use a bit of sunscreen when you use this moisturizer.
4. Estee Lauder DayWear Sheer Tint Release Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant Moisturizer SPF 15

This lightweight and highly absorbent moisturizer from Estee Lauder is a queen amongst tinted moisturizers. It has a very hydrating formulation that leaves your skin feeling soft and supple. It’s not too thick, meaning you won’t have to spread it around so much to ensure that it goes onto your skin smoothly. It’s great for any skin tone and can only improve your skin’s texture and sheen.
Bonus: It’s non-comedogenic, so your pores will be happy. However, it’s one of those moisturizers with a very low SPF rating of only 15. It’s highly recommended that you slap on some sunscreen, as well.
5. MAC Lightful C Tinted Cream SPF 30 with Radiance Booster

New babies on board Mac blush in Springsheen and Mac Lightful C Tinted Cream in Medium. Keep your thumbs up that the shade will match me current skintone 🙂 #maccosmetics #macblushes #macspringsheen #maclightfulc #maclightfulctintedcream #macjunkie #macaddict #maccollector #nofilter #szkielkopisze
The MAC Lightful C has nine shades available. It’s a cinch to find the specific shade that’s perfect for your skin tone. It has a light formula that leaves your skin with a nice, radiant finish. However, it’s not a straight-up moisturizer, so it’s recommended that you add a thin film of moisturizer first before putting it on.
Its radiance moisturizer rubs out your dark spots, as well as slims down your pores. It takes out any undesirable redness, smooths out your fine lines and wrinkles, and, of course, makes your skin look a lot brighter.
6. theBalm Balm Shelter Tinted Moisturizer
This is the most versatile product in our list of tinted moisturizers. This multi-purpose product covers your skin’s flaws as well as protect it from the sun. It has seven available shades that will work for almost all skin types. It’s fragrance-free, meaning you don’t have to walk around smelling like a spa all day. However, it does have a pretty low SPF rating of only 18. It also lacks anti-aging ingredients, which may be a deal-breaker for some.
7. Hourglass Illusion Hyaluronic Skin Tint

HOURGLASS🌸 ILLUSION HYALURONIC SKIN TINT in shade #ivory is light shade and by my opinion great for yellow undertone – for skin tint – amazing coverage👍❣️with natural radiant finish for my dry skin 👍 #mymakeup #lenkarandabeauty #makeup #facemakeup #founfation #makeuplook #beauty #m#makeupjunkie #makeupartist #makeupgoals #makeuptalk #instamakeup #dubaigirls #ilovemakeup #skintint #hourglass #hourglassillusionhyaluronicskintint #hourglassfoundation #hourglassswatch #foundationswatch #fiercesociety #lookamillion #makeupmafia #makeupbyme #motd #makeupcommunity #makeupslaves #makeupaddict
Despite its formula offering medium coverage, the Illusion Hyaluronic Skin Tint from Hourglass still provides a nice, natural sheen to your skin. It offers an easy-blend moisturizing formula, giving your skin a morning dew glow. It has a broad-spectrum UV protection formula that shields your skin from harsh UV rays. It’s also fragrance-free, a feature we wish to see more on tinted moisturizers. However, its low SPF rating of 15 can be a no-go for skin types with high sun sensitivity.
