Tinted Moisturizer: The Real Foundation for Beautiful Skin

By Manuel_Marin

Does your foundation make your skin look like this? If so, you're overdoing it.

For some reason, women think that foundation is necessary for everyday makeup use. This may seem radical but to achieve your best looking skin I only have one tip for using foundation: skip it! I always tell my friends and clients alike to never wear foundation, and most of them are shocked that I’m telling them to leave behind a staple of their makeup bag. It’s just not worth the hassle at the end of the day.

The main reason why I don’t like foundation is that it causes breakouts. Even those foundations that promise that they won’t clog pores still can. Additionally, many women just don’t use it correctly. They pick colors that aren’t right, put it on too thickly and leave those dreaded lines framing their face. Foundation gives you that heavy, made-up look. Wouldn’t you rather look natural?

Some of you might be wondering at this point, “Well I don’t want to look washed out. How do I do that without foundation?” There are many ways you can get some more color into your face without slapping on the foundation. Instead, use a tinted moisturizer with SPF of at least 15. It’s a great way to give your skin the necessary protection it needs. As I’ve mentioned before, not wearing SPF everyday can cause premature wrinkling and discoloration. Tinted moisturizer also gives your skin that fresh, dewy look and glow. You’ll look amazing all day! As I’ve said before, Dr. Hauschka’s tone cream is one of my favorites. Although it doesn’t have SPF, it’s a great way to get that natural, light and long-lasting dewy glow. Another favorite of mine is MAC’s Moisture Tint. This product gives you your daily dose of SPF 15 while keeping you looking fresh and natural. To top it off, why not brush some bronzer onto your cheeks? It enhances the natural glow of your tinted moisturizer perfectly!

Ditching the foundation for some skin-nourishing tinted moisturizer is the first step to feeling comfortable in your skin – naturally, of course! Give these tips a try, and I promise you’ll never miss that heavy foundation.

    I was wonderfully surprised at how beautiful my eyes looked after Robin applied full lashes.

    i had read posted comments and didn’t know what to expect. The whole experience was an absolute pleasure. Robin is very professional, I explained my previous bad experience with an eye enhancing product, she listened to my concerns and assured me everything would be fine..

    The end result was better then I ever expected. I have gotten so many compliments and have given Robin’s card to both 20 year olds and 55+s. They all thought the LASHES LOOKED NATURAL. They were long but not too long. I love them and recommend Robin Erb to anyone thinking of having this done.

    She was so professional that she called me that night to make sure I was comfortable and completely satisfied with them .

  3. […] Tend to your skin: Many women sleep with their make up on thinking it’s not a big deal. Sleeping with foundation on can clog pores causing breakouts and wrinkles. Also, thick foundations are terrible for your skin. I suggest using a tinted moisturizer with SPF. […]
