The 13 Best Tinted Moisturisers for Mature Skin, Ranked by a Beauty Editor

Back in my beauty counter days, probably my most frequently requested product recommendation for customers with mature skin was for tinted moisturiser. Most people, upon experiencing the changes that come with skin ageing—loose skin, fine lines and hyperpigmentation—sought something lighter than foundation, and wanted a product with skincare benefits, but didn't want to compromise when it came to coverage.

If you're on the hunt for a base product for mature skin and that sounds something like the checklist you have in mind, then forget foundation, because a tinted moisturiser is the answer. They're essentially skincare-makeup hybrids, with the skin tone–evening, concealing properties of a foundation, minus the heavy texture and propensity for creasing, caking, and settling into fine lines and pores. Instead, the best tinted moisturisers will essentially act like skincare products, infusing skin with hydrating ingredients in order for skin to feel comfortable, and look healthy and radiant.

What's more, tinted moisturisers are so easy to apply—you don't even need a makeup brush because your fingertips will suffice. They're perfect for everyday wear, can be layered up if you do want or need a bit more coverage, and many of them also do double duty as sunscreen (although we would recommend applying a separate SPF for added protection).

With this in mind, we've selected the best tinted moisturisers for mature skin—healthy, hydrated skin awaits.
