From NARS to Charlotte Tilbury, Skincare-Infused Foundations Are All the Rage

These makeup-skincare hybrids are taking over TikTok.

Over the last two years, social distancing and the use of face masks have had many wearing less makeup and gravitating towards taking better care of their skin. With nowhere to be and no one to see, people started wearing makeup less frequently, while skincare boomed on social media platforms. In the beauty space, there’s always been an emphasis on glowy, natural and radiant skin, yet until recently, not that many makeup brands had fully integrated skincare into their cosmetics products. As luxury beauty pioneers that propel innovation, NARS and Charlotte Tilbury are leading the way with new additions to their foundation rosters: the NARS Light Reflecting Foundation and the Charlotte’s Beautiful Skin Foundation.

Read on to learn more about the TikTok-viral products, and find out which one is for you.

Cult favorite NARS steps in

Dubbed as an “advanced makeup-skincare hybrid,” NARS’ Light Reflecting Advanced Skincare Foundation is a medium-coverage formula that claims to quickly blur the skin upon application, while improving the skin’s clarity over time. Popular and trusted TikTok beauty gurus such as @mikaylanogueira, @christxiee and @missdarcei have raved about this foundation. Notably, Mikayla has also added this foundation to her list of potential wedding foundations, stating that “[the NARS foundation] has been on the list since the beginning, this is just incredible on my skin. The lasting power this would have at a wedding would be perfect.” Christie has compared the foundation to the TikTok beauty filter, while Darcei is ecstatic about how perfect it looks on her skin while applying on-camera.

The luminosity of this foundation is powered by 70% of skincare ingredients such as biomimetic oat, Japanese lilyturf, cacao peptides and milk thistle, which claim to improve skin clarity over time and blur imperfections. The product is offered in a wide shade range of 36 shades, which allows many individuals to find the perfect match for their skin and feel represented within this new line.

The Light Reflecting Foundation retails at the NARS webiste for $49 USD.

Charlotte Tilbury enters the chat

Following the social media craze over her brand’s Hollywood Flawless Filter, British celebrity makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury has launched a new skincare-hybrid foundation called the Charlotte’s Beautiful Foundation.

Formulated with the superstar ingredient hyaluronic acid, known for quenching skin’s thirst as it retains moisture and provides maximum hydration, the medium coverage foundation gives the skin a natural glow. Alongside the hydrating hyaluronic acid properties, the skincare factor of this foundation is also attributed to the brightening rose complex and coconut extract, which Tilbury claims to “improve the look of skin with each wear.” Similar to the inclusive shade range of NARS, Charlotte Tilbury’s Beautiful Skin Foundation is available in 30 shades, allowing individuals across different skin tones, skin undertones and skin types to find their match.

With a multitude of raving reviews on TikTok, this product is a fan-favorite for a reason. Beauty creators such as @makeupbyalissiac, @christineabrahamm and @sophdoeslife cite that the formula is hydrating, and they are pleasantly surprised by how the foundation makes the skin look dewy so effortlessly. Soph asserts that the foundation “just [sort of] melts onto the skin,” and Alissia agrees: “I’m not even kidding, my skin literally looks perfect.” Through user testimonials, it is clear that Charlotte Tilbury’s Beautiful Skin Foundation has quickly arrived at top-tier status.

Shop the Beautiful Skin Foundation at the Charlotte Tilbury website for $44 USD.
