The world of beauty is constantly reviving, reinventing and innovating products that make our everyday regime a little easier. Here’s a list of beauty hybrids that are worth the investment:
#1 Cushion Compact
Newest hybrid in the world of beauty, was created in Korea where beauty mavericks are constantly on the lookout for something innovative. This ingenious product is all set to beauty-industry domination. This liquid foundation in a cushion, that is portable and perfect for an afternoon touch up. The cushion releases just the perfect amount of makeup for effortless application, creating a dewy, fresh glow in just seconds. This lightweight and refreshing formula contains hydrating and brightening benefits.
I recommend Lancome Miracle Cushion
#2 BB or CC Cream
Short for Beauty Balm, BB Cream is an all-in-one serum, moisturizer, primer, SPF with a tint of foundation. Currently reinvented as CC (Colour Correcting Cream) meant to address issues like redness or sallowness. Although marketed as different products that tackle different issues, to me they’re marginally different. Perfect for a natural-looking coverage with skin-boosting benefits, BB and CC Creams brighten dark spots and improve overall skin tone. Great for all skin types including those with sensitive skin, these versatile formulas are designed to do it all: treat with high levels of active skincare ingredients; moisturise and smooth dehydrated skin; prime and perfect skin’s surface; and camouflage and colour correct the skin tone.

#3 Foundation with serum
Created with a mix of a nourishing serum and foundation, serum foundations are the current super-heroes in the beauty game. Created with nourishing ingredients similar to those found in your everyday skin routine, this new age foundation is an absolute must have if you’re on a lookout for an anti-aging product. This foundation is known to leave you with an airbrushed skin perfect for those #nofilter selfies.

#4 Radiance Pens
This portable product is a luminizing pen that brings light and radiance to the skin, immediately erases any signs of fatigue, and brightens the complexion. The magic pens are popular since they banish shadows and instantly brighten your eyes. Maximise its use and apply them between your eyebrows to widen your eyes, along the sides of the nose to remove shadow, and creates fuller looking lips with a dab of this on your cupid’s bow.
I love the classic Yves Saint Laurent’s Touche Éclat - Radiant Touch
#5 Lip and cheek stains
Imagine the perfectly just-bitten lips and just out-of-the-gym flush with one product. You lip and cheek stain will gift you with just that natural glow. The makeup industry has done its best to give us what nature should have through the ingenious invention of lip and cheek stains. Simply use your fingertips or a beauty blender and smile as you blend the color onto the apples of your cheeks and lips. If you're using a liquid stain, make sure to blend quickly.
