Hydration is key for keeping a healthy-looking canvas. This iconic moisturizer improves firmness, diminishes pores and lessens the appearance of lines in a short time.

Primer prepares your face for a flawless makeup application. This transparent option provides an airbrush-like finish—basically, an Instagram filter for your skin.

The Beautyblender has changed the makeup application process for good. Just three of its perks: It blends products easily without absorbing too much, is fairly easy to clean and has a solid lifetime.

Filling in sparse eyebrows may seem like a tricky task, but beauty junkies everywhere love this pomade. The creamy texture keeps even the most coarse hairs in place, and it can be easily brushed out for a more natural look.

A natural flush makes you instantly look a lot healthier. This universal blush from NARS is a fan favorite that works on every skin tone and adds just the right amount of pink.

A buildable mascara provides thicker, longer fringe with just a few swipes. This one has an extra-large brush to ensure that no clumps form on your lashes, and the end result could even pass for extensions.
