8 Makeup Products with Actual Skincare Benefits
If you’re looking to save time in the morning when you’re getting ready, a great way to do it is using makeup that doubles as skincare—the makeup-skincare hybrids that not only cut your morning routine in half but also maximize the benefits you’re getting out of them in the long run. It’s a wonder why all makeup isn’t packed with skincare benefits. For now, we’ve compiled a list of the double-duty products we love.
By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra Powder
Infused with skincare benefits of hyaluronic acid, By Terry’s Hydra Powder creates the perfect makeup finish. It’s the best setting powder to blur imperfections, minimize pores and mattify the skin without drying it out.
It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream SPF 50
This CC cream from It Cosmetics is a cult-favourite for a reason; the best-selling product comes with the benefits of a primer, serum, moisturizer and colour corrector all rolled into one makeup step. Plus, it has SPF and boasts skin-loving ingredients like collagen, peptides, niacinamide and hyaluronic acid.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer
A primer that controls sebum and keeps your skin hydrated? This one from Marc Jacobs Beauty is infused with coconut water, delivering nutrients to your skin while prepping it for makeup that will last all day.
Nudestix Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balm
Nudestix’s gel-based balm works for both your lips and your cheeks by giving them a glowy sheen, without the stickiness of a gloss. It’s infused with hydrating plant oils derived from rapeseed, sunflower, cottonseed, and soybean.
Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Liquid Makeup
Westman Atelier Lit Up Highlight Stick
This lit-from-within, translucent highlighter is infused with Vitis Vita grape extract, a powerful skincare ingredient that helps to detoxify and encourage the skin to produce hyaluronic acid and collagen.
RMS Beauty Eye Polish
This creamy eyelid glaze is comparable to eye cream; it’s chock full of nourishing ingredients. Thanks to the coconut and jojoba oil, and cocoa seed butter in the formula, it’s designed to be “worked into the skin” like a moisturizer.
RMS Beauty Eye Polish, SGD45
This product from Glossier is the epitome of makeup-skincare hybrids. Is it a serum? Is it a primer? The hybrid is a nourishing cocktail of oils like jojoba, grapeseed and rosehip, squalane, and light-reflecting minerals. You’ll fall in love with the glass skin effect it leaves on your skin.
