This is the era of products smart enough to think for themselves. Steady advances in science over the last two decades reached a crescendo last year with makeup and skin care formulas from companies like Estée Lauder, L’Oréal and Dior, to name a few, that can adjust themselves when encountering oily or dry patches of skin.
Other color products can shift intensity of hue, depending on lighting conditions—whether the wearer is indoors or out in bright sunlight.

These products don’t just sit on the face, they work there.
