Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place High Cover Concealer SPF 35 

This is not really a new concealer, but for some reason people don’t really use it much. It is lightweight, but very concentrated. It covers your toughest flaws. I apply this either with my finger or a concealer blush.” $24, esteelauder.com

Tom Ford Cream Cheek Cover

“It’s a beautiful pinky peach color that is suitable for almost all skin tones. On lighter skin, it gives you a beautiful glow, almost like coming from your natural skin. On darker skin, it can work as a warm highlighter. I like to apply cream blush with my fingers. I find that the natural warmth from your fingers helps to blend the blush beautifully.” $65, tomford.com

Chanel Le Volume Waterproof 

“We all love the nonwaterproof version, so finally they came out with waterproof! It gives you tons of volume and thickness to your lashes. Once applied, it lasts all day with no smudging. Because it is waterproof, it does dry very quickly, so you need to apply it fast.” $32, chanel.com

Lancôme Miracle Cushion

“This is a beautiful liquid makeup in a cushion. You can build the coverage without looking heavy. It is subtle, dewy and has a natural glow finish. I use the sponge that comes with the compact. If you like a heavier coverage, I would recommend using a foundation brush and pressing down the cushion, then applying. I love the natural finish of the foundation most of the time and I don’t use powder to set it.” $47, lancome-usa.com

NARS Wet/Dry Brush 

“It’s a really soft brush. It’s perfect for applying and blending, and the best part is that you can use it either wet or dry. I love using this as a foundation brush.” $28, narscosmetics.com

Ck One Color Shine Lipstick 

“It is a perfect combination of lipstick and lipgloss. Those who love a sheer lipstick with great pigment and some gloss that is not sticky will love this lipstick. I use it straight from the tube or lip brush, or with my finger to achieve a sheer stain. I also use it on top of lipstick to add a natural sheen. I even use it as a highlighter and eye gloss.” $16, Ulta.com
