If you’re not a gal who needs full coverage, you’re going to love this light-weight foundation that illuminates, smooths, hydrates, minimizes pores and reduces wrinkles for perfect skin. A pool of youth-boosting actives help give you a gorgeous baby-skin effect, smoothing and evening out tone. Its formula lasts for up to 18 hours while stimulating epidermal renewal by kick-starting collagen production, delaying the onset of wrinkles and creating the perfect makeup base. It also includes SPF 15 to help protect your skin from damage. This is best applied with a foundation brush. Start by blending it into your skin from the middle outward, creating a daytime, tinted-moisturizer look. For evening, carry out the same application but pat onto areas where you need extra coverage. In the summer, you can extend the multiple uses of your foundation to your body to even out imperfections.

Charlotte’s Full Fat Lashes might just be the best glamorous mascara we’ve ever used. Applying this is like applying false lashes, with a minimal amount of work. The multitasker curls, separates, lengthens and dramatizes lashes in a single stroke thanks to a five-groove brush deposits the optimal amount of mascara along your lash line, pushing lashes up and out with each stroke. Fine-tipped bristles catch every lash no matter how small or fine, while the glossy formula creates voluptuous, three-dimensional flutter. Haute tip: starting from the inner corner and working across, zigzag the brush upward from root to tip to curl and separate lashes. At the outer corner, pull the brush up and out to lengthen lashes. For added volume, nestle the tip of the brush into the roots and brush upward. Repeat with your bottom lashes for added drama.

The Retoucher is a conceal and treat stick inspired by a professional photographer’s magic retoucher pen, that will literally make dark circles and imperfections disappear with the click of the pen. Thanks to a hydrating complex, your skin is kept plumped and moisturized for a natural, luminous finish while a black tea derivative rich in vitamins fills in hollowed-out skin grooves, creating a smooth, seamless surface. Use by twisting up the end of The Retoucher and applying a small amount of concealer directly onto your imperfection. Pat the concealer into the targeted area with your ring finger as it has the lightest touch.
