Summer Skin Survival

It’s almost summer, but you’re still hard at work with no plans of slowing down. You rarely lose your cool, but you can’t always say the same for your makeup. “Makeup for work can be tricky,” says eHow. “The goal should be to appear professional, capable and generally put together.”

Tinted moisturizers balance your complexion, with sheer formulas that help blend away imperfections while maximizing your skin’s natural glow. Many also contain SPF to protect your skin from the sun.

Some products we love:

Available in 10 shades from Porcelain to Mocha, Laura Mercier’s Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer is lightweight and gives your face a matte finish so others in the boardroom won’t see you sweat.

Smashbox Cosmetics’ Sheer Focus Tinted Moisturizer is packed with natural ingredients, like vitamins and citrus honey, to protect your skin’s elasticity and fend off free radicals.

Those with sensitive skin will appreciate Clinique’s Moisture Sheer Tint: It’s fragrance-free, hydrating and works with all skin types.

For a bit of color without the hassle, try Benefit’s Posietint on your lips and cheeks. Just a touch lasts all day.
