Refresh your face without starting from scratch. These tricks from beauty experts will help you look pretty and put-together in mere minutes.
THE PROBLEM: Lackluster skin.
THE BOOST: Use tinted moisturizer and cream blush — right over whatever makeup you're wearing — to make skin glow. Try Olay Definity Color Recapture ($25 at drug stores). Then blend a pink or peach cream blush onto cheeks. Consider Stila Convertible Color in Peony ($25, stilacosmetics.com).
THE PROBLEM: Tired eyes.
THE BOOST: Wake them up with an illuminating shadow and a mascara refresher. Use a concealer under the eyes if needed. Next, sweep a sheer, gold-flecked powder over lids and on the inner corners. Try Lancôme Color Design Eye Shadow in Filigree ($16.50, lancome-usa.com). Also brush on one of the new mascara emulsifiers to rewet and smoot0h the mascara you applied in the morning. Our pick: Tarte Rejuvelash Natural Declumping Lash Exhilarator, $16, sephora.com.
THE PROBLEM: Blah-looking lips.
THE BOOST: Apply a berry-colored stain. It requires less precision than dark lipstick (just use a finger), and it won't rub off. A rosy shade, like Becca Beach Tint in Watermelon ($25, beccacosmetics.com), flatters all complexions. Top with gloss for extra shine.
