Discover our round up of the best skincare-infused makeup to add to your beauty bag.

Erborian CC Cream

This award-winning CC Cream from Erborian combines the lightweight consistency of a moisturiser, with the sheer coverage of a foundation. Utilising colour-correcting pigments that adjust to your skin tone automatically, the formula is tailored to suit your unique complexion.

Plus, the cream is infused with anti-ageing actives including centella asiatica, adenosine and vitamin B3 to promote elasticity and strengthen the skin barrier. Topped off with broad spectrum SPF25 protection, this CC Cream really is a cocktail of goodness for your visage.

Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment 

This redness reliever went viral for a reason! A correcting treatment that offers natural, skin-like coverage, this colour-changing formula applies green to the skin and transforms to suit your unique skin tone, whilst cancelling out redness with tiger grass. The formula is topped off with resurrection plants, houttuynia cordata and yarrow, which help to fortify the skin barrier, leaving the skin calm, soft and cared for.

Melting seamlessly onto the skin to offer a flush of colour, this sheer tint is composed of 90% skincare ingredients, including hyaluronic acid, shea butter and orange blossom. Ideal to perk up a bare complexion, or to apply over your base, this lightweight balm can be built up to your desired colour payoff.

As someone with an affinity for all things beauty, discovering fantastic new products is my not-so-secret obsession. Over the years I've tried and tested a mountains worth of creams, serums and cleansers, finding some of my favourite 'holy-grail' products along the way. However, I'm always on the lookout for more ways to nourish my hair, perfect my dewy base, or enhance my skincare routine. Working as a beauty blogger for over 3 years, I've been lucky enough to collaborate personally with lots of amazing beauty brands including Christian Dior, The Body Shop and Dermalogica. I've used the Dermalogica special cleansing gel religiously since I first got it and their products are some of my ultimate skincare faves. When it comes to cosmetics, NARS Sheer Glow foundation is definitely my go-to - I live for a light, glowy base!
