Concealer and foundation vs. tinted moisturize
[ Edited ]
I normally wear foundation for full coverage, and use concealer underneath to hide some blemishes. Well, I live in Tennessee where it can get pretty darn hot and I don't want to be sweating makeup! I'm interested in a great tinted moisturizer that I can use on some days instead of foundation. This question is two-fold: What are some good ideas for tinted moisturizers? How can I still make sure that my skin tone looks even and my blemishes are hidden?
For tinted moisturizer, popular brands are Laura Mercier, Smashbox and NARS. I've tried the Laura Mercier ones, which are more neutral/yellow undertoned, and Clinique Moisture Surge, which is slightly pinker undertoned. Since they are sheer, you have some leniency if the shade is not exact.
When applying, a make up setting spray or facial mist will help set things so they last. For even skintone/long-lasting TM, when sweating, press or dab the sweat away, if you wipe you will wipe off the powder. For keeping blemishes hidden, try a water/sweat proof one and again, dab but don't wipe. =X
