Foundations are designed to cover up redness and imperfections, but the harsh chemicals and ingredients used in many formulas often inflame these conditions and make skin worse.
So to heal and prevent damage, beauty companies are now launching makeup designed to help skin use natural ingredients, hydrating hyaluronic acid and antioxidant-filled serums.
Beauty center Mecca Australia recently shared five basic products that are ‘good’ for the skin, including a $ 46 all-natural oat milk product and a no-makeup serum designed to ‘perfect’ the complexion.

BY TERRY HYALURONIC ACID FOUNDATION, $ 96
This $ 96 formula is recommended by experts thanks to its ‘long-lasting, ultra-hydrating and vegan formula’ that makes skin glow.
The hyaluronic acid in this makeup ‘holds a thousand times its own weight in water to help fill and tackle dry patches’, as well as glycerin and niacinamide ‘that target acne, hyperpigmentation and redness.’
It also has SPF30 and UV filters to protect the skin from environmental damage and is free from parabens and odor.
‘I have dry / dehydrated skin and the hyaluronic acid in this product is great. The foundation doesn’t set or dry out and it smells great, ‘wrote one reviewer.
“My skin loves this. I have quite oily skin and wear makeup every day and hate the look and feel of the cakes. This stuff doesn’t do that and by the end of the week my skin without makeup looked great, ‘added another.

‘This really light coverage is perfect on days when I want a bit of a shade. The formula is great and feels hydrating on my skin and not heavy at all, ‘wrote one woman.
“For someone who suffers from eczema and also has a very oily T-zone, it was always difficult to find a foundation that lasts all day and doesn’t overly accentuate my dry patches on my skin,” added another .
‘I’ve only tested this foundation a few times so far, but on the days when I only powdered once (right after applying the foundation) my T zone was the least oily it was with all my foundations that I currently have even after an 8 hour day. ‘

“I love that it has older skin and a lot of redness and this makes my complexion look so much better yet so natural that it fits around the nose and mouth where other formulas are,” wrote a 41-year-old reviewer.
“I don’t spend much [money] on the base, but thought I’d give this a try and oh I was satisfied, ‘added another.
The silky smooth serum-like texture glides on your skin and blends so beautifully that you look dewy and natural without being over the top. I highly recommend this foundation serum. ‘

“I got this over a month ago and have been using it every day since! This foundation is so thin and weightless, but it gives me the coverage I want in a foundation, it feels like I’m not wearing anything, ‘wrote one woman.
“It doesn’t stick to dry patches for me and doesn’t melt from my T-zone where I get greasy. I feel I would go through this very slowly as you hardly need one to achieve full coverage. ‘
“The best foundation I’ve ever had, I no longer feel greasy, it’s going to have incredible results and high quality all day long that I can continue to recommend to one of my friends,” added another.
