Charlotte Tilbury Tinted Love Lip & Cheek tints
Still trying to find your “I-just-woke-up-like-this” (but not really) Zoom lewk? These limited-edition lip and cheek tints will give you that no-makeup makeup kiss of colour in five shades, all enriched with hyaluronic acid and Vitamin E. These babies are transfer proof (your mask thanks you) which means they dry down quickly so if you’re using the easy doe-foot applicator on your cheeks make sure you blend right away.

Biossance Squalane + BHA Pore-Minimizing Toner
This alcohol-free toner tightens pores, clarifies, purifies, and hydrates all at once. The secret sauce is raw white willow bark, a great source of BHAs, which calms, dissolves dead skin and smooths skin texture, while hydrating squalene gives your thirsty face a drink. The formula is designed to balance the oiliest skin types without dehydrating the driest—everybody wins!

Bareminerals Gen Nude Blonzer
It’s not quite a blush, it’s not quite a bronzer—it’s a blonzer. The newest hybrid product from this clean makeup brand combines the rosiness of a blush, the warmth of a bronzer and some pore-smoothing goodness to give you those I-was-at-the-beach-all-day vibes in three light-reflecting shades.

Kora Organics Turmeric Glow Moisturizer
This refillable pot of gold from supermodel Miranda Kerr’s certified organic line is a do-it-all face cream that brightens, hydrates and firms. Turmeric, licorice and noni fruit nourish, fermented probiotics tighten and a nutritious trio of desert date, rosehip and marajuca oil make your skin glow.

Olay Regenerist Mineral SPF
You know that feeling when you can’t even with the multi-step morning beauty routine? Olay sees you, and has come out with this light, whipped moisturizer that’s also their first 100 percent mineral-based SPF. The sheer, fragrance-free formula comes in SPF15 and SPF30 strengths (go for the 30!) and unlike a lot of zinc-based sunscreens doesn’t leave a ghostly white cast on your skin.

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Glow Fusion Powder
Now, this baby isn’t cheap as far as compacts go, but you don’t need much of the oil-free, lightweight powder foundation to give you a super luminous finish. You can wear it alone or on top of liquid foundation for more coverage. Comes in 10 shimmery shades.

Goopglow Glow Lotion
Ok, we know Gwyneth Paltrow can be…a lot…but beauty afficianados still love her Goopglow skincare line—the 20 percent Vitamin C+ Hyaluronic Glow Serum is legendary—so it’s hard to ignore when a new product is added to the lineup. This time it’s a featherweight lotion infused with spirulina enzyme, vitamin C and Australian Kakadu plum, all wrapped up in a light citrus and vetiver oil-blend scent.
Now that you know about the best new beauty products, this is what you need to know about dry brushing.
