The "skin-first" or no-makeup makeup look isn't anything new, but it's still a solid go-to for many beauty enthusiasts. Sometimes, a bit of skin tint or tinted moisturizer and a few swipes of mascara are all it takes to feel and look put together.
Often used as a replacement for one's daily foundations, skin tints are now in high demand. Many of these lightweight formulas feature ingredients that aren't prone to clogging pores, and are formulated with just enough pigment to make the skin texture look even, with a your-skin-but-better appeal. The application of skin tints is beginner-friendly, and you can even manipulate shades to fit your skin tone.
Below, check out six skin tints that'll make getting ready easier during the summer.
