Say Hello, to the new form of foundation: Skin Tints!
By: Tahiry Sanchez

Between minimal makeup and your bare skin, foundations have become plan B for coverage. Skin tints or tinted moisturizers are the new go to coverage for your skin, letting a little peek of your natural skin show while still covering those minor imperfections. Skin tints have become the new popular trend of substituting foundations, BB creams and CC creams because they are wide, all-in-one multitaskers unlike foundations, which only focus on coverage and even skin tone.

This is becoming the new wave of makeup in the future to come. Many makeup artists agree that skin tints feel less heavy on the skin and healthier in creating a hydrating benefit for every type of skin tone. Skin tint formulas have also been a huge help for the on-the-go person who only has 10 minutes or less to do a full-face of makeup. It is fast and easy to apply. It is also great for beginner makeup artists who do not want to over fill their face with makeup and instead have minimal coverage. Skin tints are super affordable and range from different prices for different budgets. You can find skin tints anywhere, from high end makeup stores to your local drug store.

There are so many brands that have an eye in creating their own unique style in skin tints which attract different consumers. Another amazing factor about skin tints is their design in packaging. Most skin tints have an on-the-go design, being either in a tube or small size. Many people can agree they are great to take long with them, unlike foundations which can be bulky, heavy and hard to carry. Skin tints are usually light weight to take in your daily makeup bag. Clearly, the hype of a no makeup, natural look combined with a skin tint is the magic formula to it all. With the pandemic changing our normalcy from before, skin tints are becoming more popular and will continue to be used by celebrities, makeup artists and your regular on-the-go-gal.
