With an enormous 44 million views on the app to date, skin tints occupy a cosy space between a light-coverage foundation and your most hydrating skincare product. The feel? Featherlight. The finish? Super natural. Unlike heavier base products, tints allow skin to look like skin while very subtly tucking away any gripes you might have, such as redness, scarring or breakouts.
As the UK gears up for a mini heatwave (and hopefully an even sunnier summer), you might be looking to ditch your full-coverage foundation for something more comfortable — and a skin tint is the answer.
