Skin tint is the new cool kid on the block that takes the “your skin but better” concept to a whole new level. You get soft coverage, dewy texture, and a weightless feel — everything that contributes to a barely-there beauty look.

Perfecting the ever-trending “no makeup” makeup look has been taking the complexion world by storm and on the forefront of it all, as the quintessence of natural, are skin tints.

Read on to discover some of the best and most highly sought-after skin tints in 2024!
