We created a makeup tutorial to help you enhance your already-beautiful self—and we’re keeping it simple. Watch this video and see how our beauty tips can enhance your style. You’ll be surprised at how good an uncomplicated look can look.


1. Foundation

bareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation

Why It’s Great: Imagine a foundation that was part makeup and part luxurious serum. This is it. All you need is two drops for impeccable coverage that not only doesn’t feel heavy, but also truly creates a “no makeup” look. It sets to a soft, natural finish and provides broad-spectrum SPF 20 sun protection. Plus, it comes in 20 shades.

2. Concealer

Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Liquid Treatment Concealer

Why It’s Great: It brightens as it conceals imperfections in a lightweight texture that’s ultra-hydrating. The reflective mineral-based pigments give a soft-focus effect to minimize the look of imperfections.

3. Bronzer

Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Bronzing Veil – Tropical Nights

Why It’s Great: The universally flattering shades of bronze, gold and silver luminate skin while imparting a subtle, sun-kissed glow. You can use the silver shade to highlight.

4. Eyeshadow

Laura Geller Beauty The Delectables Eye Shadow Palette – Delicious Shades of Nude

Why It’s Great: Create any look you want with this collection of neutral, earthy shadows. The nude shades are particularly beautiful, and the variety matte and metallic finishes makes this palette a must-have.

5. Lash Curler

Kevyn Aucoin Tool – The Eyelash Curler

Why It’s Great: There’s no better tool out there to curl your lashes than this one. ’Nuff said.

6. Mascara

Kevyn Aucoin The Essential Mascara – Rich Black

Why It’s Great: Add some drama with this volumizing, lengthening and curling mascara. The deep-black shade sets to a lacquered finish and doesn’t smudge.

7. Brow Powder

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo

Why It’s Great: Anastasia is the brow master of Hollywood, and the pressed brow powder lives up to her reputation. The two complementary shades offer flexibility to help create a fuller, natural-looking brow.

8. Angled Brow Brush

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brush Duo Brow-Eyeliner Angled Cut-Spooley-No. 12

Why It’s Great: Effortlessly groom and apply eyebrow makeup with this one tool.

9. Clear Brow Gel

Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel

Why It’s Great: A clear brow gel is essential for setting brows in place. This lightweight formula holds brows in place all day and never flakes.

10. Blush

glominerals Blush – Rosebud

Why It’s Great: The sheer peachy shade casts the perfect amount of pop to the complexion, and the antioxidant-rich formula nourishes skin. It’s a win-win.

11. Lipstick

Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Butter Lipstick – Park Ave Princess

Why It’s Great: This rosy nude-colored cream lipstick is universally flattering and glides on like a dream. The shiny finish adds a touch of glam to tie together any look.
