We all love a good full-coverage moment with our makeup, but with this heat and humidity, we just can’t be bothered. It's no wonder that skin tints and tinted sunscreens are getting so much love this year; their lightweight and sheer finish are the perfect alternative for foundations, especially during those extra hot and lazy days.
With coverage so light, skin tints are so easy and quick to apply on-the-go. It'll instantly give you a more even skin tone, enhance your complexion with skincare perks, and give you the protection you need from the harmful UV rays! Overall, it's a great product for those who just started exploring makeup or those who simply want a base that lets their real skin shine.
If you're looking for affordable options that also happen to be proudly Filipino, here are seven picks that you’d want to get your hands on for this summer:
