It's no secret that I'm not a huge fan of makeup. It's not because I don't think it's great. It really does, but my reasoning comes out of sheer laziness. I've said it before, but I'll say it again: My normal routine is very minimal, even before these quarantine times. That makes preparing for the day a lot easier and gives me more time to sleep. And these days, I hardly ever wear make-up anymore because I was lucky enough to be able to work from home. Aside from an occasional important Zoom meeting where I needed to look extra presentable, I can probably guess I've touched my makeup products less than 100 times in the past year.
My usual line-up for a makeup look without makeup consists of a bit of concealer, mascara (after curling my lashes), maybe a dab of blush or light dusting of bronzer, and a fun lip color. But the product that really makes me succeed is a tinted sunscreen. It's my secret weapon when it comes to a minimal face.
A tinted sunscreen does two things for me. First, it gives me minimal coverage and improves my complexion, which makes my skin a bit more radiant and glowing. And second, it gives me much-needed SPF protection even when I'm inside all day (because you still need it!). Even though I don't currently wear makeup most days, I always wear my normal skin care products and my favorite sunscreen. That little bit makes me feel like at least I've tried for the day.
There are some great tinted sunscreens (and SP moisturizers) out there for pretty much any budget or price. If you want to start the game with tinted sunscreen or are looking for a new one, there are a few options below.
