We sure are glad that makeup has a come a long way since “Pan Cake” makeup and powdered mascara. There are now a variety of textures, formulas, and colours to suit every woman and man’s beauty needs. And while all of that is every beauty lover’s dream, what’s even more amazing is how today more brands are coming out with products that are good for your skin as well.

If you thought your regular skincare routine was enough, think again. By adding skin-loving ingredients into makeup products, your foundations, primers, blushes, and whatnot can care for your skin while you wear them.
