6 Best Tinted Moisturizers for Redheads

The perfect product between a foundation and a moisturizer

Tinted moisturizers are a great option for redheads. They are lighter than your typical foundation (a plus in the warm summer months) and allow your beautiful freckles to shine through. They also help to even out your skin tone, give you coverage and some even provide sun protection. It is important to look for ones that contain at least an SPF15 or higher in order to prevent sun damage.

We’ve rounded up our favorite and most effective ‘Redhead Friendly’ approved tinted moisturizers:

1. For Those Who Want Sheer Coverage: 

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB 8-in-1 Beauty Balm Skin Perfector SPF 30, $6

It is a very sheer coverage but nonetheless imparts a natural glow and brightness to the skin. It is also oil-free and very lightweight. It is good for anyone who suffers from acne-prone skin.

2. For Those Who Want a Natural Look:

This one contains 80% organic ingredients and contains no parabens or fragrance which is crucial for redheads with exceptionally sensitive skin. It also contains a whole host of oils that are very beneficial to the skin – like jojoba oil, sesame seed oil and avocado oil. Note: The lightest shade may still not be light enough for very, very fair-skinned redheads.

Physician’s Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15, $8

3. For Those Who Worry About Dry, Aging Skin: 

Boots No7 Dual Action Tinted Moisturiser SPF 15, $14

Contains a super-moisturizing formula that helps to conceal imperfections and even out skin texture. I would highly recommend this to someone who suffers from really dry or aging skin. Note: The fair shade in this product has a very pink undertone.

4. For Those Who Want a Long-Lasting Look: 

Aveeno Active Naturals Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30, $18

This has minimal coverage but it’s great for covering up the excessive redness on your skin. It has a high SPF and lasts all day – even after a long run in humid weather.

5. For Those Who Want To Try The Cult Favorite: 

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20, $45

It is an all-time favorite for many reasons. It’s sheer, lightweight and adds the perfect amount of coverage, without feeling too cakey or dry. Adds a little dewy glow to a redhead complexion.

6. For Those Who Want a Tinted Sunscreen Included: 

PCA SKIN Sheer Tint Broad Spectrum SPF 45, $50
