Make-up that’s good for your skin

Give your skincare routine a makeover with makeup that’s good for your skin.

For many of us, putting on make-up in the morning is part of our daily routine. It wakes us up, makes us feel good and puts us in the right frame of mind to start the day. However, there’s a common notion that wearing make-up is really bad for your skin. While this can potentially be the case, it really depends on which products you use, so, to help you out, we’ve put together five of our favourite beauty products that are good for your skin.

Flawless coverage

Bare Minerals aims to create a positive impact in the world of beauty by creating products with minerals that nourish your skin. Its Original Foundation is a must-have product for anyone who’s after flawless coverage that doesn’t cake your face or clog your pores. With SPF 15 to protect your skin from the sun’s rays, this foundation has a soft, creamy texture, despite looking like a powder. You may find this pretty unbelievable, but the Bare Minerals Original Foundation has actually been proven to improve your skin’s appearance over time. Talk about a skin makeover!

Breakout saviour

There’s nothing worse than getting ready in the morning, only to notice an annoying breakout that’s crept up on you overnight. EVE LOM’s Dynaspot is here to help you combat any unwanted spots by getting rid of them quickly without drying out your skin. It has a skin tone tint, making it ideal for use both under and over makeup. It acts fast to reduce inflammation and redness, so you can go about your day without feeling self-conscious about your skin.

Golden glow

The English Mineral Makeup Company believes that your skin deserves the very best treatment possible, so all its products are made from natural, high-quality ingredients. For a golden glow, to rival even the sunniest of days, try the Warmth & Bronze bronzer. This bronzer comes in six shades, including Golden bronze and Satin deep, so it’s up to you whether you’d like to go for a naturally bronzed look and or something a little bit more dramatic. Nothing will dull your shine this summer!

Ready, set, go!

There’s nothing worse than applying your make-up with precision, only to smudge it afterwards. All of that artistic skill for nothing! Vichy’s Dermablend Setting Powder helps keep make-up firmly in place by forming a protective layer on the surface of the skin when applied. The powder is lightweight and translucent, so it will neither look nor feel like you’re applying too much product on top of your usual make-up routine. This product has been recommended by dermatologists and is used by make-up artists – definitely an endorsement we respect.

Luscious lashes

For the finishing touch, add some glam to your look with Odylique’s Mineral Mascara. This mascara is the first to be certified by the Soil Association standards, as it’s 100 per cent natural and free from synthetic chemicals. Made from nourishing plant extracts including aloe vera, calendula and sea buckthorn fruit, this mascara will both beautifully define your lashes and provide them with some TLC. You don’t have to worry about your lashes clumping together either, as this mascara’s full-volume brush will separate each lash from its base as you use it. So flutter those eye lashes proudly!
