Tried and Tested: Skin tint

Sometimes you're just not up for a heavy face of foundation, but you still need to cover blemishes, dark circles and uneven skin tone. What's a girl to do? Skin tints and tinted moisturisers are once again making waves in the beauty world, so we've tracked down three of the best.

mantel, and bringing a fresh approach to barely-there coverage.

Dermalogica Sheer Tint SPF20 - 4/5

I'm a huge Dermalogica fan, so was excited to try this new skin tint. It went on like a dream, gliding easily across my face to give an even coverage. Although my skin looked like it had a touch of make-up on, it had that lovely make-up free feeling. Light and breathable. It lasted most of the day, and left my face feeling fresh until I washed it off. A few touch ups were needed, but a great daytime choice. Dermalogica devotees will not be disappointed.

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen - 4/5

I usually shy away from tinted moisturisers because I think they won't last the full day in the way foundation does. However, Laura Mercier's product has completely changed my opinion. It provides the right amount of coverage but in a natural, non-cakey way and didn't budge even after a long day at work. If you have a breakout to cover it might not be quite enough but for minor blemishes it does an excellent job.

Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturiser SPF15 in Porcelain - 5/5

Tinted moisturisers should offer just a touch of coverage as well as hydrating your skin, which is just what this one does. As my skin is good at the moment I don't feel the need to coat on make-up so HydraQuench makes the perfect option for a light tint. It blends in evenly and is less time-consuming than applying moisturiser followed by foundation. I'll definitely be using this more to nourish my skin in the winter months!
