Woman applies natural makeup

To achieve a natural and glowy makeup, the key is choosing hydrating products which include active ingredients that provide luminosity and moisture. You should get the tone right, but the composition of its formula is the most important. Select a hydrating foundation, lip balm, and blush to apply on top of your healthy skin after the morning skincare routine.

If you have oily skin, choose products without extra oils so the makeup doesn’t intensify the natural shine of your skin. In case your skin is normal or dry, apply a rich moisturizing cream and allow it to be partially absorbed. Then, apply an hydrating foundation that contains active ingredients with extra hydration, such as hyaluronic acid. You will get a ‘glow’ effect and your skin will feel smooth and elastic.


Give your skin enough hydration during your skincare routine and also with your makeup. This is fundamental to achieve radiant skin and prevent your skin from wrinkling and aging prematurely. Therefore, it is very important that you give it the care it deserves.

1. Foundation

Hyaluronic acid foundations are one of the most chosen options for faces looking to go one step further. This type of foundation provides extra moisture that penetrates the deepest layers, giving the skin a soft and hydrated appearance all day. In addition, they are oil regulatory and non-comedogenic. Therefore, they are suitable for all skin types: from the driest to the most oily and sensitive.

2. Lip balm
