These eight new skincare-powered foundation­s promise to do good things for your skin.


Chanel Sublimage L’Essence Teint, $228

The brand’s iconic vanilla planifolia water and oil help enhance skin health, while giving a soft longlastin­g glow. In six shades. Using it: Its serum-like texture gives a natural, second-skin finish. You can even skip makeup primer as your skin will still look flawless and fresh, even at the end of a long day.

Burberry Beauty Ultimate Glow Foundation, $89

The serum foundation contains hyaluronic acid to protect skin and give it a youthful glow. In 10 shades. Using it: One pump covers the entire face. The finish is very dewy and can get a little too shiny by midday – a light dusting of translucen­t powder will keep the shine more radiant than greasy. Skip the glow-enhancing primer.

Fenty Beauty Eaze Drop Blurring Skin Tint, $45

The light-to-medium coverage keeps skin smooth and hydrated all day. In 25 shades.

Using it: Its water-light texture gives a flawless, second-skin finish that stays fresh for hours. It’s also transfer-resistant under a mask. Use a “liquidy” sunscreen as thicker textures may make the product pill.

Givenchy Beauty Prisme Libre Skin-caring Glow, $80

The 90 per cent skincare base helps boost radiance and hydration. In 16 shades.

Using it: Very fluid, with a light but buildable finish, so apply more to cover blemishes, dark spots and dark circles. Skin looks dewy and healthy, and the hydrating formula keeps skin looking smooth even after a day of errands.

Cle de Peau Beaute Radiant Fluid Foundation Natural, $190

The formula helps skin retain moisture, and keeps it nourished and looking flawless. In 12 shades. Using it: Its fluid texture, like a watery tint, goes on easily. It feels hydrating and goes on beautifull­y, covering small blemishes. Skin looks more awake and has a soft glow. The foundation transfers only minimally onto your mask.

Sephora Collection Best Skin Ever Perfect Natural Finish Longwear Foundation, $29

Offers buildable coverage along with a formula that protects skin.

In 48 shades.

Using it: Despite its creamy texture, the coverage is pretty light, so concealer is still needed. It stayed on the whole day, even without a primer. I even got compliment­s.

Cle CCC Cream, $41

A BB+CC cream that’s a primer and foundation with a dewy finish, with SPF 50. In 10 shades. Using it: It hydrates and nourishes skin, and coverage is decent, concealing blemishes and moderate dark circles. But the glow is intense, so give it a few minutes before heading out. For oilier skin, dust on translucen­t powder first.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Extra Shot Caffeine Concealer and Foundation, $58

It covers imperfecti­ons, and leaves skin looking fresh while staying hydrated.

In 30 shades.

Using it: As a foundation, it gives decent light to medium coverage. It’s also pigmented enough to conceal dark circles and blemishes. It’s perfect for busy mornings – just swipe, blend, set with loose powder, and go.
