Beauty Buzz: Ask Amy

Dear Amy,

I keep hearing that a tinted moisturizer is great for summer time, but I can’t find one that covers as well as I want it to. Is there a product out there that will give me the lightweight feel of moisturizer without making me sacrifice good coverage?

Dear coverage girl,

Two good ones to try are Clinique’s Moisture Sheer Tint SPF 15 and Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturizer Oil-Free. Both provide a little more coverage than the average tinted moisturizer, but are cg_smoothers_all_day_hydrating_makeup_1.jpgstill sheer and natural looking. Another great product is CG Smoothers All Day Hydrating Makeup by Cover Girl. Although technically a liquid foundation, it’s super lightweight and easy to blend. If you find that you still need a little more coverage, don’t forget to apply concealer to the trouble spots – under the eyes, around the nose and to any spots. Finish with a light dusting a loose powder “pressed” into the skin with a big puff and you’ll be surprised how fresh and flawless your skin will look.
