Good for: buildable my-skin-but-better coverage
Wrong for: very dry or oily skin
If you love full coverage but are looking to transition to something cleaner, consider Kosas’ Tinted Oil. The liquid formula might seem like a skin tint, but its versatility is what makes it an instant classic.
One thin layer is enough to smooth out unevenness and breakouts, but not so much to stop your skin from shining through and looking like skin. (Supermodel Lily Aldridge likes it because it doesn’t cover her freckles.) Then, add more where you want more: a second layer provides fuller-coverage in problem areas. Instead of your skin being one even color, buildable color is key to keeping it natural. And even though it’s an oil, it dries down surprisingly matte.
