Like every make up routine, even with tinted moisturizers, you need to start with a clean and fresh face. Remember that tinted moisturizers have makeup mixed in them and would, therefore, need some hydration before you apply it. Wash you face with a face wash and massage the lather well. Once you have rinsed off the face wash, pat it dry. Do not be rough on your skin with the towel as it may cause micro tears. Now, spray a toner or face mist on your skin to get some more hydration.

Once you have let the face mist get absorbed into your skin for two to three minutes, proceed with a normal hydrating moisturizer to lock all the goodness in.

Now, in a gentle motion, slowly massage the tinted moisturizer into your skin using your middle and ring fingers. Make sure you are applying the moisturizer evenly to avoid it looking patchy.

Step 3 –Use A Concealer For Extra Coverage

A tinted moisturizer would even your skin tone without offering you much coverage. If you feel like you need a little more coverage use a concealer that matches your skin tone. Apply the concealer on your dark spots, pigmentation and blemishes. Blend it well using a brush or a makeup sponge. Set it with a powder and you’re done!
