This year, we’re moving on from both glass skin and matte looks – something in between will be the “it” thing instead. Instead of focusing on dew or a flawless coverage, having an even skin tone, reduced appearance of redness, blemishes, and imperfections and a natural-looking finish will be go-to look in 2024, and it’s far more achievable anyway. Enter: the Always On Skin Balancing Foundation and the Halo Healthy Glow 4-In-1 Perfecting Pen – vegan, cruelty-free, and amazing for all skin types and textures.

Smashbox has released nothing but showstopper after showstopper, and their brand-new foundation and concealer products are nothing short of incredible. Having just been released in Southeast Asia, these products are long-wearing, dermatologist-tested, and non-comedogenic.

Smashbox Always On Skin Balancing Foundation

Always On Skin-Balancing Foundation, RM210

18 shades of the Always On Skin Balancing Foundation are currently available in online and in-stores at Sephora, with a lightweight feel that’ll leave your skin looking flawlessly balanced. What’s more, this foundation is infused with skin-loving ingredients like Smashbox’s Balance Boost Complex, a powerful blend of ingredients features Hyaluronic Acid for instant and 24-hour hydration, antioxidants to protect the skin from environmental stressors, in addition to adaptogens, including Licorice Root and Sea Asparagus, to help the skin balance oil and hydration levels.

The result? A buildable yet breathable medium-to-full coverage formula that improves the skin balance instantly and over time. It visibly evens skin tone, reducing the appearance of redness, blemishes, and imperfections, and leaves a freshly applied, natural-looking finish. As it’s also primer-infused, this lightweight liquid foundation will last for up to 16 hours, leaves a color-true wear, and won’t cake, flake, or streak. Water, sweat, humidity, crease, settle and transfer-resistant? Absolutely. That’s not all; it’s also dermatologist-tested, non-acnegenic, amazing on all skin types, vegan, and cruelty-free. Be sure to shake the bottle before applying, and build as needed. Apply with your fingers to warm up the foundation, and blend with a brush or beauty sponge if you’re going for a no-makeup makeup look.
