Face Time

Create an even, clear complexion with a high-tech foundation that does more than just cover. The new formulations perfectly match skin tone, and include age-defying extras like antioxidants.

Long-wear formulas started with lipsticks—which are better than ever thanks to new non-drying options—but have branched out. Look for eyeliners, lipglosses and even semi-permanent lash tints that stay put for up to 16 hours, and sometimes beyond.

All-in-one is another new makeup motto: gorgeous cream-based colors that look great on eyes, lips and cheeks, and mascaras that curl, volumize and lengthen with just one swipe.
