Upgrade Your Everyday Beauty Routine with Red Aspen Skin Tint

When it comes to makeup, there’s something really special about finding something new. Whether it’s a trendy new tubing mascara, a beautiful blush set, or a fabulous collection of makeup brushes, it’s super fun to stumble on the latest must-have for your everyday routine. 

This is especially true once you start getting into coverage levels, as the sheer number of different liquid foundations, tinted moisturizers, and serums on the market is enough to make your head spin! Finding that perfect product is a total godsend, and it’s even better when you find something that checks all the right boxes for color options, quality ingredients, and flexibility for your favorite looks. 

As a buildable blend of makeup and skincare, skin tint has been all the rage lately, and with good reason! As a viable alternative to your favorite foundation, BB cream, or tinted moisturizer, it’s the ideal choice for multiple coverage levels, ranging from light and medium everyday looks to dramatic, date-night glam. Not only that, but it’s super easy to add to your everyday routine! In this blog, we’re diving into everything you need to know about Red Aspen Skin Tint, with a detailed look at all the reasons you’ll quickly fall in love with this amazing new formula. Let’s get to it! 

What is Skin Tint?

First things first, if you’ve never heard of or used a skin tint before, you’ve probably got a few questions. You likely wanna know what it is, but you’re probably more interested in what it can do for you. 

To answer the first question, Red Aspen Skin Tint is a buildable, liquid formula suitable for all skin types. As an alternative to your favorite liquid foundation, tinted moisturizer, or BB cream, it’s applied with a makeup sponge or makeup brush depending on your desired coverage level. It’s also packed with good-for-you ingredients like Niacinamide and antioxidants, so its formula can help to visibly brighten and smooth your skin’s texture, reducing the appearance of dark spots to give you that radiant, illuminated finish. If that weren’t enough, it’s clinically tested to be non-comedogenic, meaning it’s specially-formulated to not clog or block your pores! 

At this point, you’re probably wondering how it might work for your skin tone. We’re all different, after all, and we all have different needs. That’s taken care of too! In fact, Red Aspen Skin Tint is available in 11 gorgeous shades ranging from light to deep. It can be worn by itself for a natural finish, but you can also layer it with other makeup products for a full-on glam look. In other words, it’s your answer to approachable, flexible, and customizable coverage! 

Skin Tint vs. Tinted Moisturizer

Now, you might be wondering, “What’s the difference between this product and say, a tinted moisturizer or a traditional foundation?” The answer is simple! For starters, a tinted moisturizer is more moisturizer-focused, meaning that it often comes with a very sheer glow and a little bit of color. It might have some sunscreen or skin benefits built into the formula, but it’s not exactly color-focused. 

On the flip side, your favorite foundation will be color-focused, no matter what coverage level you’re looking for. When you use a foundation, you’re on a mission to make your skin look a certain color, and that’s what it’s going to do well.

Red Aspen’s Skin Tint is something more in the middle. It’s formulated with many of the same skin-healthy ingredients you’ve grown to love, and it highlights your skin as well. As a result, it offers much more flexible, buildable coverage, meaning it’ll give you a radiant finish that’ll quickly turn heads. It really is the perfect pairing of makeup and skincare! 

Reasons Red Aspen Skin Tint Should Be on Your Radar

OK, so we’ve given you a rundown of what Red Aspen’s Skin Tint is and what it’s designed to do. Now it’s time to dive into all the reasons it should be on your radar!

A Shade for Every Skin Tone

We’re all unique in a number of ways. From the shape of our faces to the curve of our smiles, the color of our eyes, and even the way we laugh, each of us has something that sets us apart from one another. One key factor is our skin tone, and whether you were born with lighter, more porcelain skin or you’ve been blessed with a deeper, darker shade, you want products that accentuate your unique beauty.

With a shade selection that extends from light to tan, all the way to deep bronze and ultra deep, Red Aspen Skin Tint is incredibly flexible, offering 11 gorgeous shades to choose from based on your needs. You can color match yourself from the comfort of your own home, without the need to book some time in your busy day for a trip to the beauty counter. That’s enough to celebrate on its own! 

A Flexible, Customizable Option for Any Coverage Level

It’s no secret that different looks require different approaches to coverage levels. We might apply a little blush or mascara for a trip to the grocery store, but things change once we start thinking about something for the office, an important interview, or a brunch date with the besties. Here, a little eyeshadow goes a long way, but we can always opt to add some lip gloss or do a bit of contouring if we’re feeling up to it. 

Things get even more fun for those special occasions. We’ll reach for the concealer and highlighter for our best friend’s wedding. At the same time, it’s not out of the question to break out the bronzer, eyeliner, or even a fabulous pair of fluttery false lashes for date night. 

Whatever you choose to do, one of the key benefits to Red Aspen Skin Tint is that it pairs so well with your everyday essentials, adding that extra oomph to your favorite looks with very little effort. Any kind of coverage level can be achieved easily, and your best light coverage, medium coverage, or medium-full coverage looks are only a few brush strokes away! 

A Healthy Dose of Skin-happy Ingredients

Whether you have sensitive skin, oily skin, or combination skin, chances are you're super careful about the products you apply to it, especially when it comes to things that go on your face. From hydrating face masks to eye masks and lip masks, there are a lot of products out there to consider. It’s easy to get wrapped up in the hype, and while they all have their benefits, it’s important to do your due diligence on all the ingredients you’re investing in. After all, you don't have to be a dermatologist to know what’s good or bad for you, at least from a general standpoint. 

That said, one of the greatest things about Red Aspen’s Skin Tint is how carefully curated its ingredients are. Its formula is infused with Niacinamide, a powerful super ingredient that helps to visibly brighten and smooth your skin’s texture while reducing the appearance of dark spots. On top of that, each application of Red Aspen Skin Tint contains beneficial antioxidants, aka tiny little molecules that help protect your skin from free radicals and ensure your skin remains firmer and more youthful-looking. 

Easy Application 

If there’s one thing everybody looks for in a new beauty product, it’s whether or not that product is easy to apply and easy to add to their existing routine. OK, so that’s two things, but let’s be real – no one wants to spend an eternity in front of the mirror every morning, so it’s a breath of fresh air when you find a new beauty product not only looks great, but saves you time in the process.

With its buildable and flexible formula, Red Aspen Skin Tint checks all the right boxes when it comes to application. It goes on quickly and, as mentioned before, you’ve got some options when it comes to overall coverage. 

Skin Tint for Light Coverage

Different coverage levels mean different application methods (we touched on that above), but it also means using different tools. For example, your best light coverage results will require a makeup sponge, with Red Aspen’s Makeup Sponge taking center stage. Your goal is to apply soft layers of product over the skin, as this will help give it a very skin-like texture due to the tiny little pores on the sponge. Here’s what using a makeup sponge looks like at a glance:

How to Apply Red Aspen Skin Tint with a Makeup Sponge (Light Coverage)

Step 1. Shake the Skin Tint formula well before using. 

Step 2. Fully saturate your makeup sponge with water, then squeeze out the excess water till the sponge is damp. This is also perfect for those with dry/mature skin, as it naturally pushes more moisture into the skin.

Step 3. Use the rounded end for larger areas of the face when applying liquid foundation, a bronzer, or a cream blush. Blot any excess product off as needed, leaving just the right amount of product on the skin.

Step 4. Use the tip of the makeup sponge to blend hard-to-reach spaces like the inner corner of the eyes, around your nose, and underneath your eyeliner to enhance sharpness. Additionally, you can use the tip of the makeup sponge for setting powder in the T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin).

Step 5. Add additional layers of product for buildable coverage.

Skin Tint for Medium Coverage

Like we mentioned above, things are a bit different if you opt for a medium coverage look. Here, you’re going to want to reach for a Buffing Brush, as the shorter bristles mean more concentration of product. 

Remember, while you can apply Red Aspen Skin Tint using your fingers (similar to a Tinted Moisturizer), it will look flawless on your skin when applied using a brush or makeup sponge, no matter what coverage level you’re seeking. Once you have your brush in hand, just follow these simple steps:

How to Apply Red Aspen Skin Tint with a Buffing Brush (Medium Coverage)

Step 1. Dip your Red Aspen Buffing Brush into the product and apply using circular, buffing motions. 

Step 2. Start from the center of the face and work outward to maintain even coverage. That’s all there is to it! 

Skin Tint for Medium-Full Coverage

Red Aspen’s Skin Tint formula can also help you achieve some truly stunning medium-full coverage results. Here you’ll reach for a Liquid Foundation Brush, as the densely-packed fibers mean more movement, aka more spread of the product. 

How to Apply Red Aspen Skin Tint with a Liquid Foundation Brush (Medium-Full Coverage)

Step 1. Put some Skin Tint on the back of your hand.

Step 2. Using the Liquid Foundation Brush, dab the Skin Tint formula all over your T-zone, aka your forehead, nose, and chin. 

Step 3. From there, dab the Skin Tint onto your cheeks. Note that you can also apply the product to other parts of your face that might need some extra coverage, such as under your eyes or around your lips. Add other products you need such as your preferred concealer, bronzer, or highlighter, and you’re good to go!
