When you spend long hours wearing makeup on your skin, it makes sense for them to contain skin-loving ingredients that care for the skin while diffusing imperfections. The idea of a skincare-makeup hybrid isn’t new in Asia though—BB Creams (Blemish Balm Creams), originally developed by German dermatologist Dr. Christine Schrammek to protect her patients’ skin after facial peels and surgery in the 1960s, gained popularity amongst Koreans in the early 2000s where the trend eventually evolved into other product lines like CC Creams (Color Correction Creams) and BB Cushions.
In the West, the trend for incorporating skincare ingredients into makeup had just started to pick up, in part due to the pandemic where there is more emphasis for multi-tasking beauty products that helps individuals get ready in a jiffy. There is also the cost efficiency benefit of requiring fewer products to achieve maximum results. While lockdowns have eased up and the world is on its way to pandemic recovery, the trend of hybrid makeup would not, largely due to the desire to retain the fresh-faced, understated makeup look that has resonated with many during the pandemic.
