Ideal vs. Great Deal: Moisturizing Makeup
You'll love these hydrating products priced for every budget and picked by Health's Beauty Director Colleen Sullivan.
Ideal: Dewy cheeks
La Prairie Cellular Radiance Cream Blush in Rose Glow ($70; shoplaprairie.com)
blush that doubles as a skin treatment? Believe it. This luxe cheek color is loaded with soothing chamomile extract, vitamins A, C, and E to fight free radicals and silica to absorb oil.
Great deal: Dewy cheeks
Mark Just Pinched Instant Blush Tint in Nude
I’ve never had an easy time making
cream blush look natural (Bozo comes to mind), but this twist-up wand and wearable shade make application oh so simple.
Ideal: Amazing eyes
Stay-In-Place Shadowcreme in Smokey Plum
($18; esteelauder.com in late March)
mistake-proof shadow: One swipe over my lids (the color is deeply pigmented) is all I need for a pro finish. The moisturizing base sets in seconds without flaking.
Great deal: Amazing eyes
Maybelline New York Color Gleam Cream Eye Shadow in Blue Freeze
($6; mass retailers)
I find that most cream eye shadows wear off before lunch, but the blue and silvers in this
three-shade palette don’t crease or fade.
Ideal: Moist lips
Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Super Strawberry
I haven’t had this much fun with a balm since Lip Smackers! One swipe delivers a
super-hydrating formula with the sheerest hint of pink. Moisturizing shea and mango-seed butters make lips extra soft.
Great deal: Moist lips
Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipgloss SPF 15 in Pink Benefit
Jam-packed with hydrators like collagen and hyaluronic acid, this
gloss feels as rich as petroleum jelly but provides a great-looking hue. (I had a bunch of people ask me about my new pink lip color.) Love that it also contains sunscreen.
