You might have read stories about how some people went on a “makeup fast” for a few weeks and subsequently saw their complexion improve.
Makeup may have a bad name as far as good skin is concerned; conventional wisdom tells us that wearing too much makeup can increase the chance of clogged pores and dull complexion.
But what if we tell you that there’s “nourishing makeup” out there that can make your complexion better?
Yes, you’ve read this right.
Skincare-infused makeup is a trend in beauty, and we’re fully on board with it.
Blending skincare and makeup perfectly, makeup-skincare hybrids don’t just conceal or blur away imperfections using tints and light-reflecting particles, they also contain solid skincare ingredients that are intended to care for your skin throughout the day – until you cleanse your makeup off.
This means that you’ll be able to achieve a great-looking complexion, with or without makeup. And if you ask us, that’s a win-win situation!
5 skincare-infused makeup we’re adding to our makeup stash
When it comes to skincare-infused makeup, we currently have our eyes on the new Y.O.U Beauty Noutriwear+ range.
A premium complexion series, this has an impressive ingredient list.
First, it is made with the Litestay™️ Tech, for seamless and long-lasting coverage.
The Litestay™️ Tech consists of two innovations:
- Filmexel®, a natural biopolymer that lets the product feel like a second skin, protects it from harmful external aggressors, and makes the makeup last longer
- Soft Lift-diffusing Powder, which comes with an “auto-correcting” ability, delivering the appearance of flawless skin by covering fine lines, redness, imperfections, and controlling excess sebum
The skincare technology that it is infused with is Immortelle C-Lock Essence and Centella Asiatica.
The Immortelle C-Lock Essence includes the Immortelle flower extracts as its key ingredient.
For the uninitiated, the Immortelle flower is also known as the “everlasting flower” because of how they would never fade or wilt even when they’ve been picked, retaining their colour and aroma.
As a skincare ingredient, it is rich in antioxidants and can significantly stimulate collagen production.
Centella Asiatica, also known as “Cica”, is a well-loved ingredient seen in many Korean skincare products that is known for its ability to hydrate and soothe skin, as well as calm inflammation and repair skin.
Y.O.U Beauty Noutriwear+ Velvet Liquid Foundation
For a breathable and lightweight foundation that lasts, the Noutriwear+ Velvet Liquid Foundation is the product to go for.
Proven in labs to last for up to 24 hours, this also controls excess sebum without drying out your skin.
The formulation is slightly different from conventional foundations as it is creamier yet not heavy nor tacky on the skin.
One pump is all you need to apply it onto the entire face, while perfectly covering up imperfections, leaving your skin looking flawless yet natural.
Thanks to the infusion of LiteStay Tech with light-diffusing elements, the foundation delivers a second-skin result as it blurs imperfections.
Containing the Immortelle C-Lock Essence, this foundation enhances skin elasticity and maintains skin moisture. It is also enriched with Centella Asiatica (or Cica), making it suitable for sensitive and acne-prone skin.
If you’re not sure which product to go for in the Noutriwear+ series, we’d say you should consider this amazing foundation!
Pro tip: Mix a few drops of serum into the foundation for a Korean “dewy skin” look.
Available in four shades, retailing on Shopee.
Y.O.U Beauty Noutriwear+ Silky Pressed Foundation
We’ve always had the impression that pressed powder can be thick, heavy, cakey, and drying – that’s until we’ve come across the Noutriwear+ Silky Pressed Powder, which doesn’t dry out the skin.
This is thanks to its infusion of the Immortelle C-Lock Essence and Centella Asiatica extract; it’s able to offer a flawless zero-powder makeup effect, while still effectively locking in the skin’s moisture and maintaining its elasticity.
Perfect for touch-ups, this nourishing smooth powder foundation glides on smoothly onto the skin and has powerful oil-absorbing ingredients that help you stay shine-free for 24 hours, without leaving your skin looking dry and dull.
Available in three shades, retailing on Shopee.
Y.O.U Beauty Noutriwear+ Complete Cover Concealer
Those who have acne often find the concealer a friend and a foe at the same time – you’d want to use it to hide blemishes yet are worried about it aggravating the spots.
Thankfully, this concealer is infused with Centella Asiatica, which is a soothing and anti-inflammatory ingredient often found in acne-busting skincare products. This means that this concealer can help calm acne as it covers it up.
At the same time, you’ll love that it comes with a 30° precise-angled brush tip that ensures easy and accurate coverage of contoured and small areas on the face like the nose and lips area.
Available in two shades, retailing on Shopee.
Y.O.U Beauty Noutriwear+ Airy Fit Loose Powder
Looking for a weightless loose powder that can set makeup and control sebum for 24 hours? This doesn’t just do these but also nourishes your skin as it holds your makeup in place.
An air-light, ultra-fine powder that gives you a makeup look that doesn’t flake nor crack, this contains Immortelle flower extracts to offer antioxidants, so your makeup acts as a perfect shield against free radicals and other pollutants.
Psst, users who have tried the product even compares it to premium loose powders in the market, saying that they deliver similar results!
Available in one shade, retailing on Shopee.
Y.O.U Beauty Noutriwear+ Makeup Stay Lock Mist
Skincare on the go? This setting spray is it.
Containing the film-forming Filmexel and skin-loving Sodium Hyaluronate and Immortelle C-Lock Essence to effectively lock in makeup for up to 12 hours, this nourishes your skin with every spritz.
You’ll love how its intelligently designed pump dispenses tiny mist particles of just 30μm diameter (that’s just 0.03mm!) with a nearly 90-degree fan-shaped spray, so you’ll get an even and ultra-fine mist that dries quickly on the skin without affecting your makeup.
As a bonus, it has a fresh fragrance that uplifts your spirit!
Pro tip: If you’re prone to irritation and redness, arm yourself with this mist so you can calm your skin down on the go, thanks to the infusion of Centella Asiatica in the formula.
Retailing on Shopee.
