Primer - use after tinted moisturiser?

If I am correct, primer is supposed to be used after moisturiser but before foundation. But what do you do if you only used tinted moisturiser rather than a separate moisturiser and foundation?

Well, I moisturise before tinted moisturiser - I treat it as a lighter coverage foundation. So I moisturise, apply primer then tinted moisturiser.

Tinted moisturiser isn't usually actually terribly moisturising (unless it makes a separate claim to be extra-moisturising). It's a stupidly misleading name. It's generally more of a light coverage foundation, and should (IMO) be treated as part of your make up routine, not your skincare, iykwim. So I would always always put primer on before tinted moisturiser, then use either the tinted moisturiser or foundation, not both.

That is really useful, thank you. As you say, a misnomer.
