If you'd like to wear less makeup, because of summer heat, time constraints, or simply because you don't need a lot of product (lucky you!), tinted moisturizers are a must-have for your makeup bag. We've road tested tons of options to find the very best products for every budget.

Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer is one of the most well-known options in the industry. The product is lightweight and offers a sheer hint of color, which gives your skin a fresh and healthy glow. The oil-free formula is great for all skin types and offers protection from the sun's harmful rays. At $43, this moisturizer is a bit on the steep side, but devotees of the product find it to be well worth the price tag.

If you're new to tinted moisturizers, you may balk at spending forty-plus bucks on one. Kiss My Face Tinted Moisturizer is totally affordable (under $10!) and offers many of they same benefits as some of the more pricey options. We love that this tinted moisturizer is oil-free, fragrance free, and contains no artificial dyes. Plus, it's enriched with Ester-C to help smooth out your skin tone.
