Rather than looking naturally and effortlessly radiant, it seems like we’re wearing a mask purposely designed to exacerbate the imperfections we’re trying to hide.

So what's a girl to do in situations like these? Well, the obvious solution might be to use less foundation, but this won't help much if the product you're using is full coverage and it just sits on your skin rather than blending in with your complexion.

Fortunately, other solutions can help you get the natural look you desire without all the fuss and mess.

And that solution is called tinted moisturizer. Without skin-suffocating coverage and greasy residue, tinted moisturizers give you that beautiful, even complexion that enhances your natural beauty. Excellent for everyday wear, this lovechild of makeup and skincare often contains nourishing ingredients that not only hide the appearance of imperfections but actually help treat them in the long run.

If switching up your makeup routine is long overdue, but you don't quite know where to start, here are our recommendations for the best tinted moisturizers to test out!
