Hybrid, multipurpose, fusion – whatever you call it, we are here for 2021’s love for all things multi purpose. The current trend for skincare makeup fusions, not only make our lives easier but benefit our skin in the process.
Maybe it’s the pandemic, or maybe we are just demanding more from our products, but more than ever, more of us are looking to streamline the amount of products we use and we want them to work harder then they have before; ultimately saving us time, space and coins.
Here are some of our favourite multitasking beauty products of the moment.
This much loved classic, the IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better Foundation + Skincare started off as a normal foundation (founder Jamie Kern Lima couldn’t find a full coverage foundation that neutralised redness for sensitive skin, and so It Cosmetics was born). but has had a fabulous revamp. It now includes hyaluronic acid, aloe vera extract and vitamins E and B5 to help improve your skin in as little as two weeks, whilst minimising pores, imperfections, redness and major glow.
Farsáli caused a social media furore when they launched and we can see why! Their primer-serum fusions have names like Unicorn Essence, Liquid Glass and Rose Gold Elixir and can be used as a moisturiser, serum or primer.
Full to the brim of fabulous ingredients (the Rose Gold Elixir contains pure 24 carat gold flakes, Vitamin C, Vitamin A and rosehip seed oil) you can also mix them with foundation for a beautifully glowy base.
Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen is completely invisible, with no scent, parabens or alcohol. Instead, it contains specially selected skincare ingredients – like blue light-neutralising red algae and hydrating meadowfoam seed - so your skin is protected and improved at the same time. With a silky smooth texture, it works as a great primer for makeup and is also sweat and water resistant.
Eye cream in a concealer? Mind officially blown. This incredible L'Oréal Paris True Match Eye Cream in a Concealer SPF20 contains hyaluronic acid to restore moisture to the delicate under eye area and includes SPF20 to help protect and give supple and smooth results. Available in ten different shades to suit a range of skin tones, we’re impressed with this brightening, hydrating hybrid.
Having developed Yves Saint Laurent’s Touche Eclat, Terry de Gunzburg is a woman you know you can trust. Her BY TERRY Hyaluronic Pressed Hydra Powder sets makeup, mattifies without looking dull and cakey, absorbs shine and blurs imperfections. How? Enter the master ingredient: hyaluronic acid. This magnificent skin superhero holds up to one thousand times its weight in water, and leaves the skin feeling plump, dewy and moisturised. This is one makeup bag staple we won’t be living without come summer.
