WTF is a Skin Tint?


simply shantel skin tint review
Hey y’all – If you’ve been following me on Instagram lately than you’ll know that I’m looooving Skin Tints lately.

A lot of people use makeup for a variety of reasons, but not everyone likes having full coverage makeup on their face. If you are one of these people, you are super lucky because lots of options exist for you, and one of these options is Skin Tints aka Tinted Moisturizers.

Previously or most commonly known as Tinted Moisturizers… Skin Tints are moisturizers that have a subtle bit of pigment in them! You’ll also notice that they don’t have as many shade ranges like a normal foundation and that’s because of the amount of pigment – one colour, suits many!

When applied, they provide the skin with a radiant finish and a subtle look. It usually contains a large amount of anti-oxidants, humectants, SPF and other helpful ingredients. A skin tint is basically a moisturizer with a dash of colour.

So, if you are looking to don a no-makeup look, or wake up 30mins before your shift -> skin tints are your surest bet!

Why Skin Tints are the
Skin tints have light coverage and much unlike foundation, they do not cake after application.
Skin tints give your skin a dewy and glowy look without overdoing it. They still give your skin to chance
to cool, dry, and air itself.
When you incorporate skin tints into your daily routine, it saves you time and it simplifies your makeup
Skin tints do not just help you look good, they also help treat the underlying causes of skin blemishes.
Most skin tints have a formula fortified with skin-nourishing supplements, vitamins, and moisturizers.
These ingredients aid in hydrating the skin, and leave it looking extremely fresh.

First Aid Beauty, Ultra Repair Tinted Moisturizer
This tinted moisturizer combats redness, dryness, uneven skin tone, and skin dullness. It is highly recommended because it is free a number of ‘red-flag’ ingredients such as mineral oil, sulfates, artificial fragrance, alcohol, and lanolin. It is also vegan and 100% suitable for sensitive skin. It is great for a number of skin types from dry and sensitive to oily skin! It is fortified with SPF 30 and it offers your skin 12 hours of moisture while providing a luminous finish.

It’s also the Skin Tint that I’m wearing in the above picture and in this one here, and here!

Glossier, Perfecting Skin Tint
According to Glossier, this skin tint is enhancing, breathable, refining, and smoothing. In general, your skin has a lot to gain from this product. It aids in evening out skin discoloration and the end product is a dewy, toned, and smooth face. It was made with a very thin formula that’s just like a second skin. You wouldn’t even feel like you applied anything, but your face will speak volumes. It hides and corrects the blemishes while giving your skin all the room it needs to breathe.

Lancome, Skin Feels Good Hydrating Skin Tint Healthy Glow SPF 23
If you are after a skin tint that hydrates your skin with a bit of coverage, this is the skin tint for you.
It is oil-free, and packed full of ingredients that place a focus on helping and improving the skin, such as Hyaluronic acid, SPF 23, and Moringa Seed extract. It also offers sheer coverage. It is available in a variety of colours and you get to choose based on your complexion. This one has been on my top shelf lately.. I’m wearing it in this picture and it lasted all day!

When you use any one or more of these skin tints, you will look more refreshed and rejuvenated than
ever before, seriously girl.
