If you hate wearing heavy foundations daily but your skin can't deal with the ultra-hydrating formulas of tinted moisturizers and tinted sunscreens, we have the answer for you: skin tints! Skin tints give off that "your-skin-but-better" vibe without feeling or looking heavy. Before we recommend you our picks, here's a refresher on how a skin tint is different from a tinted moisturizer and a tinted sunscreen:
Skin Tint vs Tinted Moisturizer vs Tinted Sunscreen
A skin tint is a lightweight foundation that may or may not contain SPF protection. It usually has a buildable coverage with a natural or matte finish. Tinted moisturizers, meanwhile, provide complexions with minimal coverage and maximum hydration. And lastly, a tinted sunscreen is a base product that gives barely any coverage but comes with high SPF protection.
Now that you know how to differentiate the three, here are skin tint options you can try—depending on your budget!
1. BLK Universal Skin Tint Sun Shield SPF 30
BLK's Skin Tint will give your complexion a fresh, hydrated appearance. It leaves a natural finish on the skin and can lightly cover old acne marks, dark spots, and redness. P.S. Just because this product contains SPF doesn't mean you shouldn't apply a separate sunscreen anymore.

2. Finn The Label Dewy Skin Tint SPF10
This all-natural skin tint is made from locally-sourced ingredients. The formula instantly melts into your complexion to give it a perfected look that's not cakey. It comes in 10 shades so Pinays with fair, light, medium, tan, and brown complexions can find their perfect match.

6. Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Perfector Blurring Skin Tint
"Like a foundation but not really" is how I would describe this product. The Ultra HD Perfector's satin finish makes the skin look hydrated and plump. It effortlessly blends into the skin, doesn't make the face appear greasy, and in my experience, can last all day and night.
