We all know the dangers of applying harmful ingredients on our skin, and we also (unfortunately) know that many of these harsh ingredients can be found in the makeup products we use every day. But, what if we told you that you could buy your makeup from the very skin care brands you trust? Well, look no further. We’ve rounded up eight of the top skin care brands who also offer top-quality cosmetics to keep you breathing easy while you primp.

Equal parts anti-aging skin care and skin-perfecting makeup, Algenist’s new makeup line, REVEAL, utilizes a bevy of different ingredients like alguronic acid (the ingredient found within microalgae that initially put the brand on the map in 2011) and microalgae oil to both treat and correct skin simultaneously.
We’re loving the line’s Color Correcting Anti-Aging Serum Foundation SPF 15 ($48) that boasts lightweight yet buildable coverage and supercharged ingredients to smooth skin while also combatting dull complexions, and the Concentrated Color Correcting Drops ($38) that instantly color-correct skin based on your needs. Try the REVEAL Blue to neutralize the appearance of washed-out or sallow skin, and the green to reverse redness.
Known for their superior anti-aging and firming qualities, it’s no surprise Rodial’s extensive skin care line is known around the globe—or that their makeup products boast just as many good-for-your-skin capabilities as their popular counterparts. While the makeup line launched in May 2015, the brand added some brand new must-haves this year that we can’t get enough of.
The line’s Blushers ($35) feature jojoba seed oil and oil-absorbing properties to keep your skin matte with the most beautiful flush of color. Try it in the coral shade Copacabana (pictured) for a brighter look, or South Beach, a rose shade, for a lighter pop of color on your cheeks.
Coveted for its concentrated, botanical-infused formulas found within its broad skin care line, AmorePacific has been known as the first Korean brand to bring time-tested tradition and indigenous ingredients overseas—hello, Korean skin care craze. This luxe brand also cultivates their own ingredients and harvests each plant at peak times, ensuring you are delivered the best results possible.
Creators of the cushion compact, AmorePacific has perfected the formula with their new Age Correcting Foundation Cushion SPF 25 ($80). Try it if you’re looking for full coverage with natural lifting and firming benefits, too. Plus, it features an Even-Layer Technology that forms a coating over your skin to even skin tone and diminish pores. (Launches February 15)
Peter Thomas Roth
Peter Thomas Roth’s skin care approach is as simple as “breakthrough formulas, astonishing results” and this mantra has undeniably followed suit in the makeup arena as well. With a line filled with products that work wonders as you wear them (think mineral bronzers infused with SPF 30 and long-wear mascara that conditions lashes while you wear it), you’ll be hooked in no time.
Infused with the brand’s active peptide treatment, Lashes to Die For, The Liner ($28) is a dual-action eyelash treatment that doubles as a stay-put jet black liner as it dramatically enhances the appearance of your lashes in length, thickness and fullness.
Unlike many skin care brands, Juice Beauty prides itself on its organic solution—its chemists start with an organic botanical juice base (think malic acid from apples or resveratrol from grapes) and then add in powerful skin care ingredients and nutrients so each drop is feeding your skin.
This year, the brand launched its Phyto-Pigments Color line, and with Gwyneth Paltrow as the creative director, it’s got to be good. We’ve got our eyes on the Satin Lip Cream ($24), delivering full-coverage color and an infusion of age-defying serum that rejuvenates lips and reduces the appearance of pesky fine lines.
Developed by renowned facialist Eve Lom, this straightforward and luxe skin care line focuses on the importance of proper exfoliation and cleansing, which is what she believes is essential to create the perfect canvas for skin care products to thrive. In 2014, the brand expanded into makeup products with the launch of Eve Lom Complexion.
One of our favorites is the Light Illusion Concealer ($40), which works to hide imperfections, fine lines and any sign that you’ve lost sleep lately with just one swipe of the easy-to-use pen. With it, skin is naturally illuminated while fruit stem cell extracts deliver moisture and aid in skin elasticity.
La Mer’s celebrity clientele alone has proven it is the gold standard for moisturizing products. With formulas derived from highly active ingredients from the sea (think nutrient-rich algae, antioxidant extracts and semiprecious stones), La Mer not only delivers products to indulge in, but also those that make a serious difference in your skin.
Infused with SPF 15 and a silky finish, The Treatment Fluid Foundation ($85) boasts a lightweight, breathable texture and immediately boosts brightness and radiance while an exclusive Blue Algae Lift Ferment works to firm and lift skin.
Known for its organic sun care products that achive high levels of protection with fewer irritants, COOLA products go from “Farm to Face” and offer broad-spectrum SPF protection with up to 85 percent fewer actives.
Its Mineral Face SPF 30 ($36) is no different, featuring broad-spectrum protection and anti-aging benefits while leaving behind a flawless matte finish. Formulated with organic rose hip oil, vitamin C, flax seed oils and shea butter, even the most sensitive skin won’t be irritated with this good-for-your-skin formula.
