    Everything in this slideshow

    • Fortified Foundations

      Get an even, flawless complexion instantly, while fading dark spots and softening wrinkles over time. Foundations and tinted moisturizers (aka CC creams) packed with anti-aging ingredients and broad-spectrum sunscreen can help boost your efforts to look younger.  

      Try one: CoverGirl + Olay Tone Rehab 2-in-1 Foundation ($15; ulta.com) has pigment-fading niacinamide.

    • Shadow Sticks

      Line and shade your lids with the same product. Shadow sticks look like eyeliners -- only chubbier. Use the tip to give eyes a smoldering lined look. Or use it like a crayon to swipe color from lid to crease. Then blend well.

      Try one: Maybelline Eye Studio Master Smoky Longwearing Shadow-Pencil, shown in Black Smoke ($7; target.com).

    • CC Lip Glosses and Lipsticks

      You've heard of CC creams for skin and even hair; now lips are getting in on the act. A mix of color and care, these formulas hydrate dry lips as they deliver your desired hue.

      Try one: Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm, shown in Apple a Day ($6; almay.com) or Armani Rouge Ecstasy CC Lipsticks ($34; giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com).

    • Conditioning Mascaras

      Fake it until you make it? That's the idea behind mascaras that are packed with conditioners and peptides said to boost lash growth -- or at least help keep the lashes you have healthy.                       

      Try one: Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Lash Enhancing Mascara ($24; elizabetharden.com)

    • Multitone Bronzers

      Usually a mix of a few different shades that can be worn separately or swirled together for natural-looking radiance, the multitone bronzer is the ultimate glow-maker. To get even more out of your palette, use the pink or peach tones as blush and swipe the earthy brown shades on your lids.

      Try one: e.l.f. Studio Bronzer in Warm Bronzer ($3; eyeslipsface.com).

    • Skin-Care Oils

      They're billed as skin hydrators, but really, these natural oils have quite a few beauty benefits. Slick it on your face for a fresh glow, work a bit through your hair to smooth flyways, and use a few drops to moisturize ragged cuticles.

      Try one: Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil ($6; walgreens.com).

    • Cheek Stains

      Dab some on the apples of your cheeks for a sheer flush that will stay put all day. Then swipe some over your lips for a pretty, longwearing tint.

      Try one: Benefit Cosmetics Lollitint ($30; benefitcosmetics.com), an orchid-color liquid cheek and lip stain. 

    • Illuminated Primers

      Primers do a lot for your skin, smoothing over enlarged pores and fine lines, while making your makeup last longer. Choose an illuminating formula and it will also give skin a soft-focus glow that peeks through the foundation you layer on top.

      Try one: Stila Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD Illuminating Beauty Balm with SPF 30 ($38; stilacosmetics.com) can be worn under makeup or alone.

    • A Cone-Shaped Makeup Sponge

      This ergonomic sponge -- with a pointy tip and rounded base -- is primarily used to flawlessly apply foundation. But makeup artists have found some additional uses for the sponge: Using it to dab on cream blush, applying and blending eye shadow, and even smoothing on an even layer of sunscreen.

      Try one: Beautyblender ($20; beauty.com)

      Colorless, Loose Powder

      The traditional use for invisible or translucent powder is to set makeup and reduce shine, but we've heard of some pretty cool off-label uses. To make your lip color last longer, apply and blot your color. Then add a light layer of powder before topping with more lipstick. Another insider trick: Dust powder on lashes before applying mascara to give them a thicker appearance.

      Try one: Laura Mercier Invisible Loose Setting Powder ($35; sephora.com)
