The sun is glaring down on you, temperatures are on an all-time high, and the humidity is so thick that it weighs down on you. Malaysian weather is no laughing matter — it can be blazing hot one minute and thundering the next. Basically, your skin could be going from dry to oily within minutes. If you have layers of makeup on, it’s not going to be a pretty sight.

There will be days when heavy makeup is unavoidable, and we completely understand. After all, who doesn’t want all-day lasting makeup from the moment we leave our home to our party at night? Setting sprays and baking your makeup may work, but one easy way to avoid your makeup from melting is by simply applying fewer layers. Multi-tasking products exist for a reason and they are indeed lifesavers. That’s why we’re recommending tinted sunscreens instead of full coverage foundation.

While we can’t stop stressing on the importance of sunscreen, coverage is equally as important too. Tinted sunscreens solve that both issues in one go — sun protection and coverage — and that’s already one layer down.

They even out the skin tone, protect the skin from the usual UV rays and impurities, and the best part of it all — lightweight, so reapplication doesn’t feel heavy on the skin. Here are five to choose from.
