Tinted Moisturizer No-go

Who doesn’t love hearing the mood-boosting compliment “I love your glowing complexion,” especially if it’s not followed up with the inevitable “what makeup product are you using?” How do you make sure you don’t betray your barely-there beauty look? Make like the pros by not forgetting to apply makeup to 1) the ears, 2) the zone behind the ears, and, for those who tie their hair back, 3) the nape of the neck.

Start by choosing your tinted moisturizer color carefully: too light and you can appear washed out, too dark and features start to look rugged. The ideal tinted moisturizer? Bienfait Teinté Beauty Balm, available in three skin tone-matching makeup shades. Simply apply outwards from the center of the face to the nape and nobody will ask you what product you’re using -- guaranteed.
