Make Your Makeup Routine Easier, Better And Faster

The good news it that some formulas are much better than others when it comes to fine lines! The trick is find out which ones without going through every product at the beauty store. For lips, I particularly like NARS Audacious lipstick. The formula contains new technology that allows the color to sit more on the surface of the lip as opposed to settling into lines. If you’re not bent on lipstick, then I think gloss is an excellent option. Chanel has an impressive range of glosses and they redid their entire range of gloss formulas about a year ago so the formulations are not sticky and quite grown up. YSL also has many hybrid gloss products that tend to create a more smooth surface rather than accentuating lines. I’m thinking of the glossy stain and tinted oils in particular.

For foundations, if your skin is on the drier side, then creamy formulations will help. I like a very pigmented concealer for this job. Cle de Peau makes a terrific one and you can simply rely on this for days you want a more natural look. Of course, blend, blend, blend. For full face coverage, you’ll want enough pigment so that you’re covering what you need, but again I would think creamy as opposed to some of the formulas billed as more lightweight. A formula that has radiance qualities is also a blessing. The Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer paired with the radiance primer is beautiful for this. For more coverage, the Armani Designer Lift has some built in radiance. Lastly, if you’re committed to powders, I would give It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better™ CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder Illumination™ With SPF 50+ a try. It’s my favorite powder out there right now -- zero cakiness -- and that’s saying a lot as I usually avoid powder.
