Those who opt for a "no makeup" makeup look have valid reasons for embracing this style. It's a way of enhancing the appearance of the skin with minimal makeup, steering clear of the heaviness and cakiness often associated with extensive makeup applications. This is especially beneficial in the warmer summer months when opting for thick coverage and sticky foundation is less than ideal.

To achieve the desired "no makeup" makeup look, it's recommended to let go of traditional high-coverage foundation and concealer. The alternative? Tinted moisturizers.

According to makeup brand Glo Skin, a tinted moisturizer is a versatile product that not only provides skincare benefits like hydration and environmental protection but also imparts a subtle radiance and a naturally glowing complexion.
