First there were BB creams, then CCs, even DDs. But all those pale in comparison to the new crop of skin-care hybrids because this time around, the complexion-perfecting extras aren’t limited just to foundations. So while they’re adding a pop of color or lovely glow, they’re also imparting antiaging ingredients powerful enough to let you skip your usual array of potions.
1. Eve Lom
This ultrafine bronzing powder adds a dewy glow without ever looking cakey or heavy. Meanwhile, the makeup line’s proprietary raspberry stem-cell mixture stimulates skin’s own hyaluronic acid and locks in moisture.
Unlike glosses that suck the moisture from lips, a big helping of vitamin E and hefty moisturizers provides major hydration for even the worst flaking. Better yet: The formula is shiny but never sticky, and actually protects lips from the elements.
“Double Agent” Concealer ($32)
The two-in-one design includes both a cream and a powder for instant camouflage and highlighting. And the super-blendable formula features a rich mix of oils, butters, antioxidant vitamins, and pigments that not only smooth and conceal dark circles but also prevent under-eye darkness.
