Tinted moisturisers offer a more lightweight, sheerer coverage than a traditional foundation. Combining the hydrating benefits of a moisturiser with a natural-looking tint, they're the perfect hybrid of skincare and makeup.

We've compiled our favourite formulas across the high street and luxury brands to create a shopping guide on the top-performing products.

If you have dry skin, look for ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and squalane oils, if you're oily, opt for oil-free options to help control shine.

They're also incredibly low maintenance, seamlessly blending in seconds using just your fingers.

Take your pick from our 12-product line-up, from brands including Nars, Rare Beauty, Trinny London, and more.
