Sunscreens that spread easily and don’t ruin makeup. Sign us up please!
ést.lab Estetica Sunshield Aqua SPF50, $86 (50 ml), has a lightweight, watery formula that hydrates while protecting skin against harmful UV rays. Powerful antioxidants defend against free radical damage to delay visible signs of ageing.
Using a two-prong approach to whitening, Shiseido White Lucent All Day Brightener N SPF50+ PA++++, $85 (50 ml), increases the skin’s resistance against melanin production and diminishes existing pigmentation.
When you’re a city dweller, pollution plays a huge part in skin ageing. The Sisley Phyto-Blanc Brightening Daily Defense Fluid SPF 50 PA++++, $370 (50 ml), treats pigmentation and protects against environmental aggressors and sun damage.
Foundation primers are the unsung heroes of base makeup – often forgotten or skipped in lieu of long-lasting foundation. A good primer can make or break a foundation and you can even out the skin tone, smooth pores, add glow or hydrate skin depending on your skin’s needs.
Formulated with red pearl pigments, the Kanebo Glow Primer, $58 (30 ml), creates a healthy, luminous glow and allows foundation to adhere seamlessly.
Larger pores are instantly filled with the BECCA EverMatte Poreless Priming Perfector, $56 (40 ml). Skin remains shinefree for much longer, even if you have an oily complexion.
Containing argan and rosehip oil, the Urban Decay Optical Illusion Complexion Primer, $55 (28 ml), leaves a surprisingly matte finish, while keeping skin moisturised.
Nix signs of fatigue with the Hourglass Ambient Light Correcting Primer in Mood Light, $69 (30 ml). Its light pink tone corrects blue and green hues, brightening dark eye circles to help you look more awake.
