Who doesn’t love a multipurpose product? They can help you save time and money without skimping on benefits and efficacy. One of our favorite ways to multitask is to use moisturizers or sunscreens that double as a makeup primer. From a luxe cream with an innovative velvet texture to a tinted sunscreen that does it all, discover six skin-care products that will make your foundation, blush and more look better and last longer.
Lancôme Absolue Velvet Face Cream SPF 15
The newest member of the brand’s Absolue range features SPF coverage and a velvety, lightweight texture that melts into skin and has been tested to be worn under makeup. Expect a hydration boost and a revitalized appearance after application and a firmer, more youthful-looking complexion over time.
CeraVe Tinted Sunscreen With SPF
With SPF 30 broad-spectrum protection, a universal skin-perfecting tint and gentle, moisturizing ingredients, this sunscreen has a lot going for it. The fact that makeup goes on smooth over top of it is just icing on the cake.
L’Oréal Age Perfect Rosy Tone Moisturizer with SPF
This formula contains rosy pigments that help brighten and color correct skin, giving you an even canvas for your foundation.
NYX Professional Makeup Bare With Me Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil SPF 30 Daily Moisturizing PrimerThis formula doesn’t just pass for a primer, it is a primer. And a moisturizer and a sunscreen. Add in the fact that the formula contains hemp-derived cannabis sativa seed oil to calm skin and you’ve got yourself the perfect makeup base.
If a moisturizer is fast-absorbing, texture-refining, pore- and fine line-blurring and delivers long-lasting moisture, it’ll make an excellent primer. The Glow Gelée checks every one of those boxes.
IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Gel Lotion Moisturizer
This weightless yet hydrating gel moisturizer is perfect for oily and combination skin types. An added benefit is that it’ll leave your skin prepped for makeup. Just don’t forget to apply sunscreen in between.
