Building your makeup routine for the first time is exciting yet challenging when you’re dealing with unpredictable teenage skin. So, there’s no better place for teens to start then with a great quality tinted moisturiser or BB cream. Where foundation would be too heavy and potentially pore-clogging for young skin, tinted moisturisers are great for daily wear whether that be at school, work or the weekend.
This round up of tinted moisturisers are the perfect balance between a little coverage and plenty of skin loving benefits that will help keep teen complexions calm, protected and even toned while still looking and feeling light and natural.

Another SPF 30 product with a subtle but meaningful tint, the In A Good Light Face tint offers a wash of colour that looks natural and glowing on the skin. It wears well throughout the day and is great for evening out the skin tone a little when foundation would be too heavy. It’s also very moisturising thanks to hyaluronic acid, vitamin E and pomegranate extract.
