Judging by the latest crop of pioneering make-up trends, the fuss-free no-make-up make-up look, which many of us (and BeautyTok) have grown to love, is definitely here to stay. In case you missed it, in my previous article, Skin Tints Are The “It” Foundations This Season, I touch on the visible shift towards minimalistic make-up as “airy and breathable foundations and concealers continue to reign supreme, with make-up lovers seeking formulations that enhance as opposed to conceal. And we’re seeing this with the growing popularity of skin tints” – a category that isn’t only limited to foundation formulations. Nowadays, you’ll find an array of dew-boosting lip and cheek tints on the market to help amplify your all-over glazed-doughnut glow. Read on as we round up some of our favourite beauty tints on shelves right now:
You’ll find this much-loved skin tint in the make-up kits of many celebrity and industry pros due to two reasons:
- Its flexible and versatile shades work across many skin tones. According to Hector Espinal, Fenty Beauty’s resident MUA, one shade of this tint can work on up to three different complexions.
- Its unique QuickBlur Complex quenches skin and diffuses imperfections for a snap-worthy finish.
This is another incredible pigment-bending tint. It’s a sheer gel-balm moisturiser with the softest pearlescent accents for that extra lit-from-within glow. You’ll also find some skin-loving ingredients infused in the mix – hyaluronic acid, shea butter, squalene and vitamin E for some humectant, emollient, and antioxidant properties.
Our love for Dior’s tints runs deep for easy, popsicle-kissed lips. One swipe brings bold colour and stains your pout for a “bare-lip sensation”. And if you’re worried about dryness or discomfort, this formula is enriched with 95% natural ingredients with a dose of cherry oil for round-the-clock hydration.
REVLON Kiss Cushion Lip Tint
For beauty lovers on a budget, Revlon’s cushiony lip stain is a top-rated alternative. It merges “the look of a lip stain with the lushness of a balm” – meaning your lips will enjoy long-lasting comfort and colour. This dab and diffuse stick is also infused with coconut oil to moisturise and nourish your pout beneath its layers.
It’s been 47 years since Benefit’s founders, Jean and Jane Ford, first concocted their Lip & Cheek Stain, and it’s remained a holy grail ever since. Simply swatch and blend to add playful colour to your cheeks and lips. We like to apply a single coat for a subtle but summery flush or layer on more for a vivid and kissable hue.
