There are many days when I wake up and feel how much I want to shorten my make up and skincare routine so I can snooze for another 5-10 mins. One of the easiest ways to do that is to use hybrid skincare-make up products.
Here are some of my suggestions below:
Perricone MD – No Makeup Blush
Love. Love. Love! Finally a natural looking blush that lasts all day long. Worth the money, a little goes a long way. It’s vegan, cruelty free and even gluten free. Some ingredients that make it a hybrid is that it has vitamin c ester and ginger extract. It visibly evens and brightens skin over time. Vitamin C ester provides supercharged brightening and smoothing while Chinese ginger plant extract naturally brightens and perfects.
Perricone MD No Makeup Blush tints cheeks with a natural-looking flush of color as it visibly evens & brightens skin tone over time.
If you’re using The Ordinary – Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% do not use them together. Sadly the No Makeup Blush contains mineral oil and this isn’t good for oily types since it can cause your pores to become blocked.
HOURGLASS – Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15
Mentioned this in another review before. Great primer and non-comedogenic with SPF 15. A great underlying base and some sun protection to add on before your tinted moisturizer. And you want to get the jumbo size as it’s a much better deal.
laura mercier – Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Oil Free
This is an oldie but goodie product that’s also non-comedogenic because it’s oil free. It’s only SPF 20, for $46.00 for a 1.7 oz. whereas, NARS tinted moisturizer is SPF 30, costs $45.00 for 1.9 oz. I find the laura mercier tinted moisturizer to have too thick a base. Because of that it’s more difficult to wear on humid days.
They also make a different version that I haven’t tried because it’s not oil free. laura mercier – Tinted Moisturizer Natural Skin Perfector Broad Spectrum SPF30
NARS – Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer
This tinted moisturizer kills 2 birds with 1 stone. Amazing light coverage and SPF 30! It’s great to even out skin tone and protect the skin. Bonus: it’s non-comedogenic perfect for combination/oily/dry skin types. It’s very thin so it needs to be shaken before application but when you apply it, it feels like second skin.
it Cosmetics – Bye Bye Under Eye Anti-Aging Concealer
This is a wonderful hybrid concealer. It has anti-aging properties that fight under eye wrinkles due to yum ingredients like peptides, vitamins, antioxidants, hyaluronic acid and collagen.
PHYSICIANS FORMULA – Organic Wear Sculpting Bronzer
it’s a matte bronzer that’s buildable and only $12 (or less) on Amazon. It only comes in 2 shades but they both work for my light/medium golden undertones. They look and feel more like contour sticks though. The drugstore powerhouse brand loaded the product with antioxidants and contains: jojoba oil, indian senna seed, and aloe vera. Just warm with your hands to apply and blend with fingertips.
Hope this helps you save time, catch more z’s and free up your busy day. Enjoy 🧖♀️
