If you’ve been looking to go foundation-free, you should definitely try the Duchess’ favorite alternative
Meghan Markle may currently have that pregnancy glow, but really, she’s always had radiant, flawless skin. The Duchess of Sussex loves to go sans foundation, and probably always will thanks to one beauty product. The secret to her amazing skin? Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturizer, which she once said gives her that dewy glow.
“I don’t wear foundation unless I’m filming so this is what I put on everyday after moisturizer to give my skin a dewy glow,” Meghan said in an interview in 2016 with Beauty Banter back when she was still on the TV show, Suits. The lightweight moisturizer has a subtle pigment to even out your complexion and enhance the skin without hiding its natural beauty.
Like Meghan, you can wear the tinted moisturizer in place of your foundation for a healthy, no-makeup look that will give you a fresh, dewy finish. Plus, it’s formulated with tons of advanced skincare benefits, including SPF 20 sunscreen and a rich blend of vitamins C and E, which help protect the skin from the harmful effects of the environment.
The fact that it’s one of Meghan’s beauty faves is enough to make us want to add it to our own skincare routines. But what’s more is that thousands of customers think it’s one of the best tinted moisturizers too, leaving it near-perfect reviews on Nordstrom’s website.
“[This is the] perfect lightweight tinted moisturizer! Just enough coverage to smooth out my skin tone…so it’s the best version of my skin shining through,” one reviewer wrote.
“This has been a vital step of my five minute face for years. The feel is so high quality, and the look is subtle and beautiful,” another customer raved. “I have sampled a few other tinted moisturizers, but I always come back to this one.” Shop the beloved tinted moisturizer, below.
