Traditionally, we tend to think about our beauty routines in distinct categories: skincare, make-up, haircare, bodycare, perfume…we could go on. But actually, of all the categories that might hit it off, skincare and make-up are excellent friends.
In fact, our ELEMIS favourites have become a necessary part of our daily make-up routine. So, here’s 5 ways to ensure that your skincare and cosmetics become the best of pals…
Without smooth skin, make-up tends to look uneven and patchy. Things settle in funny lines, wear off in some places – then go shiny in others. So to create that fresh, luminous look we all love, smoothing the skin’s surface is key. Our Dynamic Resurfacing Night Cream both removes dead skin cells and kick-starts skin’s natural renewal process. Which means you awake from your beauty sleep with smoother, clearer-looking skin that takes the strain off your make-up.
If like us, you find yourself needing to be out the door double-quick, your make-up will adore our new Pro-Collagen Marine Oil. Containing a trio of seaweeds, it instantly hydrates the skin and absorbs super fast. So you get plumped, dewy skin that’s ready for make-up – with no waiting time.
Summer make-up is like clothing: It tends to be lighter, more carefree and casual. So your foundation will love teaming up with our Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm when you mix the two together. Not only will it make your foundation feel slightly thinner and lighter, it also lends skin a lovely glow that’s perfect for an easy, breezy summer beauty look.

Poor old concealer – you have to feel sorry for it. What with dark circles, puffiness and lines, it carries the burden of making our eyes look younger, brighter and more beautiful. So why not let our Pro-Radiance Illuminating Eye Balm do some of the hard work? It smooths, hydrates, soothes and de-puffs with its lovely, cooling applicator – it even contains optical blurring powders to minimise shadows. It’ll be getting on famously with your concealer in no time.
When we talk about make-up, we usually focus on applying it. But if our nightly skincare is to do its job properly, then taking our make-up off is just as important. Not for nothing is our award-winning Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm considered a beauty icon by editors, customers, and team ELEMIS. Slather it on and it literally melts away all traces of make-up, leaving skin plumped, immaculate – ready to rest and repair. So easy, so quick – it ensures that your make-up’s job will be easier as your skin is flawlessly cleansed and nourished.
