Tinted moisturizers are surefire picks for easy, natural makeup routines. We’ve scoped out five of our favorites to share with you.

If you want to even out your skin tone and get some coverage but don't want the heaviness of a foundation, a tinted moisturizer is your best bet. Not only will it give thirsty skin a boost, but the best of the bunch will also give you an extremely natural look.

Smashbox Sheer Focus Tinted Moisturizer

Smashbox's tinted moisturizer formula may be incredibly lightweight but you'll be shocked by how much it improves your skin's tone and hydration level. 

The name doesn't lie: it's sheer color but not to the point of being ineffectual – the airy formula gives you very light, very natural coverage. The product also includes SPF 15 to give you an added bit of sun protection.

One unexpected perk: a little bit of formula goes a long way with this tinted moisturizer, so the tube will last you much longer than you'd expect. $30 from

Lancome Bienfait Multi-Vital Teinte

On the other end of the coverage spectrum, Lancome's tinted moisturizer is a heavier formula that provides (surprise!) heavier coverage.

If you're going for a made-up look but don't want to deal with the hassle or weight of a traditional foundation, this tinted moisturizer is right on the money. With a flawless matte finish, great coverage for its weight and SPF 30 protection, this tinted moisturizer is an easy pick.

Because the formula is a little thicker, you may want to pair with a foundation primer to help to ensure even application; check out our picks for the seven best foundation primers here . $44 from

Chanel Hydramax + Active Teinte

For a dewy, sun-kissed glow, Chanel's super hydrating tinted moisturizer is the crème de la crème of tinted moisturizers.

Though straight out of the bottle the formula feels a bit on the heavy side, it goes on very fluid and lightweight with a natural finish.

And for all-day hydration, this product truly does deliver non-greasy moisturizing to the max. $60 from
