You probably recall us singing the praises of Benetint rose-tinted lip & cheek stain ($30) before. This product is versatile -- perfect for cheeks and lips, either alone or to help your blush and lip color pack an extra punch. It is kiss proof, works on all skin tones, and gives you a natural glow either alone or under your makeup. Benetint rose-tinted lip & cheek stain wears for hours, giving your makeup extra long wear so that you look fabulously flush all day and night.

In keeping with the sage advice of a faved makeup artist to “always at least do your eyebrows…your eyebrows frame the face,” we were excited to hear such great results from those of you that use Benefit Cosmetics Brow Zings ($30) . Take the three easy steps to fabulous eyebrows: 1) Apply pigmented wax to shape and define brows. 2) Use blending brush to apply setting powder, filling in and locking brows into place. 3) Pluck as necessary with the discreet tweezers included. Perfect!

Crest 3D toothpaste & mouthwash ($5 each) will keep your breath smelling fresh and your teeth pearly white. A great smile and fresh breath are important to making a good impression, so don’t forget your oral hygiene in your beauty routine. We recommend also carrying travel sized versions for a quick refresher on the run.

Lipsticks that nurture, moisturize and protect are crucial for every makeup lover. Dr. Hauschka ($24) lipsticks are perfect because of their Rosa Candina fruit extract, which is rich in vitamins A and C for toning, soothing, and calming effects. Certified by NATRUE, this meets the strongest criteria for natural and organic ingredients. Since these lipsticks come in a spectrum of beautiful neutrals, you are sure to find two or three that suit your fancy. What’s your favorite Dr. Hauschka Lipstick?

You will love Maybelline Line Stiletto Ultimate Precision Liquid Eyeliner ($7) for its precise application, bold and unapologetic shades, and long-wear that lasts up to eight hours. The wand is a comfortable size and length with a brush that glides smoothly.

Mac Powder Blush in Raizin ($30) is always a winning choice. This color makes us go gaga, working well as a blush or a shadow.

Mario Badescu Complex Moisturizer with Vitamin E ($20) is fantastic because it contains vitamins A and E, which are great for soothing and toning the skin. This moisturizer is water-based, so it is light and not oily. And since it has a higher than average SPF of 20, you have extra protection from sun-damage – a real plus!

This unassuming and simple product is an absolute must for lip moisture – especially in the dry winter months. Blistex Lip Medex ($1) is a classic lip moisturizer that works well under your favorite lip tint, and has long lasting and soothing properties that are great for moisture maintenance or lip repair.
