Face Makeup with Lasting Power
On your face you should use pur Minerals Liquid Chisel Brush ($23, purminerals.com) to, as the brand says “Dip, Draw & Dust” on pur Minerals 4-in-1 pressed Mineral Makeup with SPF 15 ($26, purminerals.com). If you’ve never used a mineral foundation, then you’ve been living in blissful ignorance for way too long because 4-in1 is the shiznick. Not only does this beyond-smooth, full coverage mineral pigment cover unsightly blemishes, it conceals and protects. Contains shea butter and Vitamin E, comes in 11 shades and is good for all skin types.
Add Color to Your Cheeks
Just a touch of color will do on your cheeks and it Cosmetics Vitality Flush Anti-Aging Color Reviver Stain ($29, qvc.com) is exactly what you should use to make that happen. Vitality is a hydrating, anti-aging, balm-like, long-wear, sheer flush stain that can be worn on your lips and cheeks that won’t dry them out.

Plump and Nourish Your Pout
Since you’ll need a bolder lip than what Vitality can provide, try Urban Decay F-Bomb ($22, urbandecay.com) – a seriously intense, creamy red which plumps and nourishes your pout.
