One of the best ways to get a nice glow to your skin is to use a tinted moisturizer. Both Michelle and I have dry skin, but we live in Utah so what do we expect. So one of our favorite tricks is a tinted moisturizer. One of my favorite and easy looks is to put on tinted moisturizer, throw on a little bronzer and blush, and top it of with some lip gloss. Easy as that. Here are mine and Michelle’s top five favorite tinted moisturizers.
1. Bobbi Brown ‘Extra’ SPF 25 Tinted Moisturizing Balm. This tinted moisturizer is great cause it gives you really good coverage, but feels light and is super moisturizing! It gives the skin a ultra dewy look and comes in 8 different shades. It is really good for dry skin. It is a little more on the pricey side, but it is totally worth every penny. Price: $54
2. Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra Light Perfecting Makeup. This is super light and feels like you are wearing nothing. It only has an SPF15 but it so perfect if you just want something that feel like you are wearing nothing. This was actually the winner of Allure Magazine “Best of Beauty” award for light weight coverage in 2013. Comes in 10 Shades! Price: $45
3. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF20. So to me this is the most talked about tinted moisturizer that I have ever heard about! I worked in the cosmetic department at Nordstrom a few years ago and Michelle works there right now, and we both agree that this is one of the most sold items in the whole department. It is sheer and lightweight but gives you enough coverage that you can use this in place of foundation. Comes in 15 Shades! Price: $43
4. Bare Minerals Advanced Protection Tinted Moisturizer. This comes in two different formulas. One for normal to dry skin or one for combination skin types. It only comes in one shade, but it blends in really well that it actually works for all shades of skin. I like how this moisturizer gives a nice healthy glow to the skin while giving tons of nutrients with the Active Soil Complex in it! Price: $30
5. Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer SPF20. This tinted moisturizer is good for dry or oily skin. It gives a really fresh glow to the the skin and has Retinol treatment in it. This can be found at any drugstore and is really good for the value! Price: $10.97
