The first day of summer technically hits on June 21, but you probably want to start changing your daily makeup routine right around, um… NOW. As the weather heats up, scale back on using heavy foundations, which can melt under the sweltering sun. (How messy would that be?) Instead, swipe on an ultra-light tinted moisturizer that will soak into skin and simultaneously even out your tone for a natural, I-don’t-even-have-to-try-to-look-this-good look.

Here’s two to try:


Josie Maran Tinted Moisturizer, $38
This tinted moisturizer “with a conscience” contains organic ingredients, no parabens, and no artificial fragrances – just like the rest of Josie’s line. It also includes an added SPF 30 to ward off UVA and UVB rays, so you don’t have to take that extra sunscreen step every morning.


Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Tinted Moisturizer, $24.50
Swap your morning moisturizer for this tinted version with SPF 15. Made with apricot kernel extract, chamomile, and royal jelly, it absorbs quickly but leaves skin soothed, nourished, and unbelievably soft. Just find your nearest Kiehl’s counter and pick your shade: light, medium, or dark.
