Rose-Colored Palette

Freshen sallow cheeks and lids with Chantecaille L’Ombre et La Rose Trio Palette. The peach blush gets you glowing, and the rosy shadows make your eye color pop.


Blue Eyeliner

Whiten tired eyes with a vibrant blue eyeliner such as CoverGirl Perfect Blend Eye Pencil in Colbalt Blue. $5; Click to purchase

Sheer Gloss

Add sparkle to your smile with lip gloss in shimmery peach or pink. We like Le Metier de Beaute Sheer Brilliance Gloss in (from top) Ibiza or Cannes.


Color Boosting Primer

Wake up lackluster skin with a color-boosting primer like Makeup Forever HD Microperfecting Primer in (from top) #5 in Blue (for fair skin); #6 in Yellow (for medium toned skin); and #4 in Caramel (for dark skin).


Hydrating Toner

Murad Resurgence Hydrating Toner contains lecithin, an emollient that instantly soothes tight, dry skin. Tip: Store in the fridge, and spritz on during a hot flash.


Retinol Serum

Clarins Renew-Plus Body Serum is formulated with retinol to help soften the appearance of below-the-neck sun damage.


Facial Scrub

Natura Bisse C+C Vitamin Scrub sloughs off dead skin so moisturizer can be absorbed more effectively.
