The tinted moisturiser that will replace every foundation you have in your makeup bag

I don't know about you, but I have definitively taken the low maintenance approach when it comes to makeup these past few months.

Even for Zoom calls, all I could really be bothered to do was a lick of mascara and a little touch of tinted moisturiser.

I ordered a couple of different ones as part of my online shopping frenzy (I mean; how else was a girl to pass the time during lockdown?), and one has now forevermore become a staple in my makeup bag, I feel.

The Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser is perfect if you love that whole 'no-makeup makeup' look – which I am all about. It genuinely just evens out my skin and gives it the most gorgeous glow, while letting my own skin tone and summer freckles shine through.

I would imagine, if you still feel like you need more coverage, that this product would also work perfectly as a primer.

Even better? It has an SPF of 30 – meaning my skin is protected, both when I nip outside for a run or to grab a coffee, or even sitting in front of a screen working.

I love getting into the nitty-gritty as to what products contain in order to do what they do, and was excited to find that Laura Mercier adds a ton of gorgeous natural ingredients to their products – including this one.

The tinted moisturiser is made from a hydrating complex containing nourishing macadamia and kukui seed oils, which work to boost the skin’s levels of hydration for up to 24 hours (hello plump, gorgeous skin) and reduce the appearance of dry, dull skin.

Even better, the product also contains tamarind seed extract, which works to prevent water from being evaporated from the skin, as well as a blend of antioxidant vitamins, such as C and E, and glycerin to smooth any fine lines.

And don't worry about finding a shade that matches your skin – the tinted moisturiser comes in several different shades, making it easy to pick your perfect match.

You can get your hands on the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser at Arnotts, and it retails for €49.
