By Dorothy Edgar -

SPF should never be skipped. It helps to prevent skin damage from UVA/UVB rays, signs of premature ageing and fine lines. That’s why it’s no secret that you should be investing in a tinted moisturiser with SPF for an added layer of protection.

SPF tinted moisturisers aren’t a replacement for your face sunscreen, it’s always best to use both to ensure you’ve got total coverage. Finding one that works harmoniously with your skin type, skincare routine and overall needs will give you peace of mind that you’re getting the full benefits of SPF-infused makeup.

We’ve put together our round-up of the best tinted moisturisers with SPF to give you a headstart this summer!

Why Invest in a Tinted Moisturiser with SPF?

Why not? You can experience a tonne of benefits by adding a tinted moisturiser with SPF into your makeup routine, including:

  • Sun protection: some tinted moisturisers come with an SPF-rating as high as 50+. So you can rest assured that your skin will be protected from the sun’s harmful rays.
  • Convenience: combine skin coverage, hydration, and sun protection in one step.
  • Natural makeup look: tinted moisturisers provide a light, natural finish compared to heavier foundations. This is perfect for those who prefer a sheer, no-makeup makeup look, or are looking for a lighter solution for warmer weather.

Key Features to Look For

Wait! Before you part with your hard-earned coins there are a few tick-boxes you need to check to make sure your decision is the right one.

SPF Factor

The higher the number the better the protection. Make sure your tinted moisturiser offers at least SPF 30 if you’re using it alone. Otherwise, layer it atop a high-quality face SPF to ensure you’ve got the coverage you need.


Are you someone who loves a flawless base? Make sure your new tinted moisturiser matches your coverage needs. Some BB creams and CC creams offer a more natural finish, on the other hand, so are ideal for those who don’t want their makeup to look too polished or heavy.

Skin Type Compatibility

Make sure the brand or product you go for matches the needs of your skin type. Do you have oily skin? You might prefer a mattifying, oil-absorbing formula. On the other hand, for those with dry skin, make sure you look out for hydrating formulas, fortified with nourishing ingredients like hyaluronic acid.

Skin Finish

This down to personal preference. Whether you’re going for the glowy, glazed donut look, or something more simple and stripped back, look for a tinted moisturiser that provides the skin finish you need.

Now you’ve found the best tinted moisturiser with SPF to suit your needs, it’s time to learn how to apply it! Everyone’s techniques are different, but here are the Cosmetify team’s favourite application methods for a blemish-free base.

  1. Prep your skin: make sure that you’ve fully cleansed, moisturised and applied serums to your skin prior to applying any makeup.
  2. Choose your application method: if you’re going for the natural look, we recommend applying your tinted moisturisers with your hands and blending thoroughly. On the other hand, apply your base with a foundation brush or makeup sponge to build your coverage up gradually.
  3. Set your base: Use a lightweight setting powder or setting spray to finish off your makeup routine and ensure your base stays in place all day.
