We chatted about some of the best tinted moisturizers when I went over Heat-Proof Summer Makeup but I wanted to share a few more of my faves with y’all. In the summer months it’s a good idea to swap out your foundation for one of these because a heavy and full coverage foundation is going to be all wrong for you. As you sweat, it’s going to work against you and clog your pores. Have you used liquid foundation in the dead of Summer? Melting, pooling and just overall gross is probably what you were left with. These lightweight tinted moisturizers will keep your foundation fresh! They’re super light and will keep your skin looking dewy without looking oily. A bonus? They all have SPF which most regular liquid foundations will not have.
theBalm® theBalm ‘BalmShelter®’ Tinted Moisturizer SPF 18 • TheBalm • $25.00 – This is one of my absolute favorites because of how light it is. It’s really hydrating, easy to apply, and goes on smooth each time. This one gives a medium coverage illusion (if you’re without redness and blemishes) and evens out your complexion. I tend to throw this one on under foundation in the winter as well as summer.
Physicians Formula Organic wear 100% Natural Origin Tinted Moisturizer • Physicians Formula • $11.99 – Another favorite that goes on smoothly, isn’t greasy and absorbs quickly. Super moisturizing and my skin always feels softer after use. It’s 100% natural origin tinted moisturizer is formulated with antioxidant-rich OrganiSoy and Eco-Olive to nourish and moisturize skin cells.

Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 • Laura Mercier • $43.00 – I just professed my love of this one in this review here; I really have been just loving this for daily use! It’s a lightweight, sheer buildable foundation formula that delivers a radiant finish. Protecting skin from the damaging rays of the sun with SPF 20 protection, this skin-friendly formula contains a unique Dewy Complex that is proven to keep the skin moisturized and better equipped to combat external aggressors and irritants.
Stila Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 • Stila • $32.00 – This one is super hydrating. I am obsessed. It’s full of light-diffusing pigments to help diminish the look of fine lines and imperfections.
NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 • NARS • $42.00 – This is the holy grail of tinted moisturizer. Obsessed does not even cover it. Applies like a dream, hydrates and evens out your complexion with a medium coverage that is to die for.
