This 3-in-1 Makeup Product Is My Secret for Flawless-Looking Skin

While I don't condone a 2-in-1 shampoo-and-conditioner product, I love other multitasking products nonetheless. One of those is a tinted moisturizer with SPF. It's basically a 3-in-1 makeup product since it covers up any blemishes and evens your skin tone, provides hydration, and protects against harmful UV rays. A win-win, right?

And because I'm very much into the minimal makeup look more often than not, I turn to a tinted moisturizer for my everyday look. It's so easy and effortless. Tinted moisturizer, a dab of concealer if needed, mascara, and some blush or highlighter does the trick for me.

And there are so many great tinted moisturizers for all skin types and skin tones. I consider an essential for any makeup bag, even if you are one to wear full foundation most days—keep it for those times when you want to keep it low-key and almost bare-faced.
