Let's face it, wearing makeup in the summer (or while on vacation) is never fun. No one wants to beat the heat with a full face of foundation. That's why finding the best tinted moisturizer will be your new summer B.F.F. 

You might be wondering: what is tinted moisturizer really? 

According to InStyle, tinted moisturizer combines the best of both worlds into one product. It's lighter than your foundation but still gives you just the right amount of coverage. And if that's not enough, it keeps your skin hydrated and, therefore, keeps you glowing all summer long.


Since choosing the right product isn't easy, we've decided to help you. We spent hours testing and researching every tinted moisturizer out there for your skin. The result? A list of the absolute best. We even categorized them based on your skin type. 

And, if you're in need of a moisturizer or sunscreen this summer, we've got you covered there too.
