Check out my commentary on Tinted Moisturizers on Lady Luxe's Style Blog:

Bringing together the best of both worlds, tinted moisturizers are a great way to be fresh and dewy while hydrating your skin. With summer around the corner, tinted moisturizers provide a lightweight alternative to foundation for sheer, natural-looking coverage.

While running around in a tank top this summer, you don’t want a heavy, caked-on make-up face. Tinted moisturizers give a light look and are better for your skin than foundation, as they don’t clog your pores. Whether you are advancing in age and have more wrinkles, are a young teen not wanting a heavy look or just want a softer glow for your skin, tinted moisturizers can do it all. (So be sure to read below for which products we recommend.)

Carina Lindgren, owner/makeup artist/esthetician of Flawless Faces Makeup & Skincare Lounge in Costa Mesa, Calif., is a big fan of these products. Tinted moisturizers are one of her favorite ways to create coverage. “It gives great coverage for just being a tinted moisturizer versus having a foundation look,” Lindgren said.

Lindgren reports it is quick and easy option. “If you don’t want to layer on other moisturizers underneath, you don’t have to … If you are someone who is on the go and not a big makeup person, it can still give you coverage to even out the skin tone without all the extra layers.”

The only downside, says Lindgren, would be if you need strong coverage, perhaps to conceal dark circles or acne. For those with relatively good skin, tinted moisturizers often cover enough even as a stand-alone product. For an evening out on the town, however, she recommends foundation.........................................................................................................

To apply the tinted moisturizer to your face, you can use your fingers and massage it in like moisturizer, said Lindgren. If you desire more coverage in one area, put a drop at the place and pat – not wipe, as the product is light – where you want more coverage. Alternatively, you may use a brush or sponge.
