Unlike the full coverage heavy foundations that are too much work and can clog your pores during the hot, humid weather, skin tints are lightweight formulas that help your skin breathe while also giving it a light, sheer coverage.


"All of these products offer some glow and buildable coverage unlike traditional foundation, which can be heavy and sink to fine lines due to the amount of powder in their formulas."

-shared Cosmetic Chemist Ginger King.
