7 Makeup Products That Have Skin-Loving BenefitsSeptember 21, 2021
We love multitasking products which is why we hope the trend of makeup products formulated with skincare benefits is here to stay. From blemish-fighting concealers to foundation with SPF, there’s no shortage of options to choose from. Ahead, we’re sharing some of our favorite, must-try makeup items that are good for your skin.
The Giorgio Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Hydrating Primer boasts multiple benefits: it simultaneously hydrates the skin while blurring imperfections to prep for flawless makeup application. Plus, it’s Infused with good-for-your-skin ingredients shea butter, rice bran and glycerin.
We don’t know about you, but a rich, opaque concealer that camouflages imperfections and can provide some skin nourishment is a winner. Do your skin a favor and toss the Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear Camouflage Concealer into your shopping cart. The non-comedogenic formula leaves skin with a natural matte finish and a little goes a long way.
Nothing screams skincare-inspired makeup more than BB cream — especially when the BB cream in question is the Maybelline New York Dream Pure BB. It’s formulated with salicylic acid so it helps clear and cover breakouts. We also love the affordable $9 price point.
ICYMI: CC creams can help to temporarily conceal various skin imperfections and are formulated to correct discoloration like redness or dullness. We can’t get enough of the Dermablend CC Cream SPF 50+. Its breathable, full-coverage formula doesn't clog pores and protects skin with broad-spectrum sunscreen while delivering a blend of antioxidants to skin.
Want slightly more coverage than a lightweight BB cream can provide? The IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better Foundation + Skincare is a fan favorite — and for good reason. Coming in your choice of 40 tones, this lightweight foundation is suitable for all skin types and infused with hyaluronic acid, aloe vera extract, plus vitamins E and B5.
Want a blush that can promote a healthy-looking glow and leave the skin looking fresh? Look no further than the NYX Professional Makeup Bare With Me Luminous Cheek Serum. Cheeks are left with a dewy bronze tint thanks to the tremella mushroom-infused formula.
Lipstick lovers, listen up! When it comes to our pouts, we want a lipstick that can provide a pop of color and hydration which is why we turn to Urban Decay’s Vice Lipstick. Ingredients like aloe vera and avocado oil are the key to this ultra-hydrating vegan formula. From matte to creamy, there’s a finish for everyone — not to mention an assortment of shades. We really like this Acai color for fall.
