ColourPop Pretty Fresh Hyaluronic Creamy Concealer

Dark circles? Nix them with this concealer:
Magic Makeup to Look Younger

Buy at Ulta, $9

Those pesky dark shadows are thanks to blood pooling beneath the thin transparent skin under the eyes. The triple-duty fix: a concealer packed with hyaluronic acid, like ColourPop Pretty Fresh Hyaluronic Creamy Concealer. The color masks circles instantly, and the naturally occurring acid improves blood flow, thwarting pooling while hydrating and firming skin so eyes look refreshed long-term.

Promising review: “I love this! Gives nice coverage without being too much. I can actually use this under my eyes and it makes them look smooth and not dry and crepey! Little goes a long way and blends so effortlessly. I love this!”

Pür Fully Charged Magnetic Mascara

Thin lashes? Volumize them with this mascara:

Buy at Ulta, $22

A magnet-infused mascara like Pür Fully Charged Magnetic Mascara contains positively charged ions that cling to the body’s negatively charged hairs, wrapping a tube-like coat around each one so they appear thicker. Plus, it‘s made with panthenol, which moisturizes so lashes grow in thicker and stronger!

Promising review: “This is, hands down, my favorite mascara I have ever used. It lasts all day, comes clean with my makeup remover wipes, and give my lashes incredible volume without clumping them together. I’ve been using this mascara for about three years now after receiving a sample and I love it!”

Pixi Beauty Sheer Cheek Gel

Dull complexion? Enliven it with this blush:

Buy at Pixi Beauty, $ 14

As we age, our skin sheds dry, dead cells at a slower rate, leaving skin looking lackluster. Gel-based blush to the rescue! “The color gives skin a dewy flush that not only wakes up the complexion in seconds, but it won’t settle in and magnify pores or fine lines like powders can,” says makeup artist Amy Zdunowski-Roeder. And one formulated with aloe, like Pixi Beauty Sheer Cheek Gel, moisturizes skin so it remains luminous moving forward.

Promising review: “I’ve been using this blush for TEN YEARS now! It’s incredibly natural; it blends into my skin and looks like a natural bloom of color rather than paint on my face. I have really sensitive skin and this has never made me break out. I plan to wear it for the next ten years.”

e.l.f. Cosmetics Lip Plumping Gloss

Deflated lips? Plump them with this gloss:
Magic Makeup to Look Younger

Buy at Ulta, $6

With each passing year, our lips lose more of their pillowy fullness-but a gloss made with coconut oil and menthol (like e.l.f. Cosmetics Lip Plumping Gloss) can re-plump them! Coconut oil’s lauric acid hydrates and menthol increases blood flow, swelling lips temporarily while boosting collagen production for longer-lasting volume. Plus, a gloss reflects light for the illusion of an even fuller-looking pout.

Promising review: “I bought the mocha twist and it’s a great natural lip color. I definitely noticed the lines in my lips smoothed away which is always the worst part when I apply lip color. It definitely boosted my pout as well! I will definitely buy more! Don’t worry about wasting extra money on expensive brands.”

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness Neutralizing Correcting Cream

Rashy skin? Calm it with this cream:

Buy at Ulta, $34

Green and yellow pigments in a foundation like IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness Neutralizing Correcting Cream counteract any skin redness in a flash. And it’s packed with colloidal oatmeal, which soothes skin and reduces future irritation!

Promising Review: “I have had a red nose all my life, and nothing would cover it for long, as most products would melt off after an hour or so. Bye-Bye Red stays all day, and looks natural. You can use alone or with foundation. It’s an answer to my prayers!”
