The greatest skincare-infused foundations

Your foundation needs to last all day, at least, but what if it could improve your skin over time? From the skincare special in the Volume 1 issue of IMAGE Magazine, Holly O’Neill lines up the skincare-packed formulas that promise just that


Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation, €40 at Brown Thomas and Arnotts

With a natural matte finish, you might think this would leave skin dry, but it boosts hydration by 216 per cent, protects against pollutants, wrinkles appear reduced, and it feels light.

Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation, €50 at Brown Thomas

A blend of apple, lychee and cordyceps makes skin brighter, hydrated and healthier over time, while SPF 40 protects skin from environmental damage and UV filters.

bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Hydrating Foundation Stick, €33 at Boots, Brown Thomas and Arnotts

This water-based, vegan, liquid foundation gives radiant, medium coverage with SPF 25, blue light and pollution protection, 12-hour wear, plus skin-plumping benefits.

Vichy MinéralBlend Fluid Foundation, €18.95 at pharmacies nationwide

This 70 per cent mineralising water-based lightweight foundation leaves skin fresh and glowing with hydration, while concealing all blemishes.

Shiseido Synchro Skin Self-Refreshing Foundation, €48 at Arnotts

Infused with antioxidant wild thyme extract, this lightweight foundation has buildable coverage that lasts 24 hours and SPF 30, plus it protects against air pollution.

Glossier Stretch Concealer, €18 at glossier.com

This buildable concealer covers while keeping skin glowy, goes on smoothly while brightening the skin, and nourishes it with hydrating avocado and jojoba oil and cocoa butter.

Nudestix Tinted Cover, €26.50 at The Loop at Dublin Airport

New and exclusive to Dublin Airport, this Nudestix foundation ticks all your boxes: natural finish, improves skin’s texture, protects from environmental ageing, plus it’s anti-pollution and anti-bacterial.

Clarins Everlasting Youth Fluid, €40 at pharmacies nationwide

Extracts of chicory and red jania infused in this foundation give the skin luminosity and radiance while over time, skin is firmer and smoothed.

IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Illumination Cream, €39 at Boots, Brown Thomas and Arnotts

This all-in-one beauty miracle does it all: it has SPF 50+, it’s colour correcting with full coverage, it’s hydrating, plus it’s infused with a powerhouse of ingredients including hydrolysed collagen, peptides, niacin, hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and vitamins.
