THE FOUR MAIN DIFFERENCES BETWEEN FOUNDATION AND TINTED MOISTURISER
- Foundation uses significant amounts of an ingredient called titanium dioxide. This compound acts as a pigment on your skin for and provides a thick level of coverage.
- Tinted moisturiser usually contains low levels of titanium dioxide. Instead it’s filled with hydrating ingredients that work to enhance your natural skin tone.
2. Level of coverage:
- Foundation provides an opaque layer on top of your skin which hides blemishes and helps to even out your complexion.
- Tinted moisturiser achieves a similar effect as foundation but provides a lower level of coverage. Tinted moisturiser also improves your skin rather than just covering it.
3. Skin care benefits:
- Foundation doesn’t usually contain skin-nourishing ingredients. Their sole purpose is to provide coverage and to smooth out your complexion
- Layer your foundation over a nourishing moisturiser for long-lasting hydration.
- Tinted moisturiser helps to moisturise and brighten your skin while adding a little bit of colour.

4. Range of choice:

- Tinted moisturiser is usually only available in one to four shades: light, medium, dark or natural.
