Jennifer Garner's glowing skin at the premiere of The Last Thing He Told Me was thanks to a drugstore skin tint.

She wore Neutrogena's Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint Foundation for natural, hydrating coverage.

The reviewer-loved foundation is currently on sale for under $10.

Simple, yet glamorous is an aesthetic that Jennifer Garner's red carpet looks have nailed time and time again. (See: Her classic black jumpsuit worn at the recent Party Time premiere, or even her 2022 Oscars gown.) And her latest look is no exception. In attending the premiere of her new TV show, The Last Thing He Told Me, Garner wore a strapless white gown, short waves, and glowing makeup, the latter of which, per a press release, was thanks to Neutrogena's Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint Foundation, an effortless drugstore foundation that is currently on sale for just $10 right now.

Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint


The unfussy formula is called a tint for its lightweight feel and skincare-forward ingredients. It contains hyaluronic acid to moisturize and plump skin, and the gel texture is oil-free so as not to clog pores or cause irritation during wear. Available in 10 shades, easily apply the product using its convenient doe-foot applicator and blend in with fingertips for a luminous no-makeup-makeup look just like Garner's.

"For enhancing a glowing, hydrated complexion, I blended the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint Foundation in Natural Beige onto my hands and smoothed it onto Jennifer's face, neck, and décolletage in an upward and outward motion," Kara Yoshimoto Bua, Garner's makeup artist, said in a press release.

The everyday complexion perfecter is beloved by Amazon shoppers, who give it a 4.4-star rating overall. And plenty of reviewers call it a must-have in their makeup bags. "I am so impressed with the quality of this product and the way it looks and feels on my skin," one reviewer wrote. "This is the only foundation I’ve found that doesn't clog my pores and makes my skin look smooth and flawless," another added. "Love how light this feels on my skin," another raved.

This tint is just one of many Neutrogena products that Garner, a brand ambassador, loves and wore to The Last Thing He Told Me premiere. Her skin was also prepped with her favorite moisturizer, the Hydro Boost Water Gel Face Cream, and her face was finished with the Hydro Boost Hydrating Setting Spray. In the past, Garner has raved about the gel cream in particular, calling it her "baby."

"It's a fan favorite for a reason," she told InStyle last year, adding that it immediately plumps fine lines upon application. "It's just so satisfying, you instantly see the difference," she said. "There are all these little micro-lines that once I put this on, they go away. This is 48 hours of moisture that you’re locking in with one thing, and then I don't have to worry about it."

As someone who has worked with Neutrogena for 15 years (and recreated her iconic face splash to honor the anniversary), she certainly stands by the brand and its products. Shop the rest of her favorites for glowing skin below.
