In truth, makeup and skincare should go hand-in-hand when making your skin look better. If a concealer breaks you out, find another option so you can maximize the benefits of that salicylic acid spot corrector. If you tend to wear foundation the whole day, might as well pick something that has added moisture so it provides something extra.
Your skincare products should help your skin become a better canvas for makeup to stick on. A facial serum that minimizes pores and makes your skin smoother helps when you need to do full beat glam. You don’t need to overcompensate with makeup.
But it seems beauty brands are giving us a favor by merging skincare with makeup products to create hybrid formulas that will improve your skin over time. No need to choose one over the other or to worry if your makeup is making your skincare routine tedious. Take a look at these makeup items that act as double agents.
