Silver Bullet

Makeup can work wonders, but it can only do so much to mask what’s happening under the surface. Smooth out your skin with the help of this treatment mask from Budapest-based skincare brand Omorovicza. It’s powered by antiseptic (read: acne fighting) colloidal silver, along with glycolic acid, salicylic acid and vitamin B3 to reduce congestion and prevent future breakouts.

Black Out

Removing blackheads can be a real pain (literally and figuratively). Thankfully, Clinique has introduced a two-step system for keeping your pores in the clear. First, apply a layer of the self-heating solution onto your nose and T-zone, then wet the ridged applicator tip and massage in circular motions to scrub away any dirt and oil — no painful squeezing required.

Damage Control

Drink less. Sleep more. We all know that even with good intentions, sometimes life can get in the way. Hide the effects of your hectic, temptation-filled life with Avène’s latest — a lightweight cream packed with moisture-boosting ingredients and a mother-of-pearl finish for a (seemingly) well-rested glow.

Shine On

Speaking of a radiant complexion, Dr. Hauschka’s new illuminating fluid will work wonders to improve the look of your skin with a shimmering texture that suits every skin tone. Featuring a nourishing combination of mineral pigments, as well as witch hazel extra, apricot kernel oil and jojoba oil, it even works to benefit your skin from within.

Second Skin

Beauty brand Becca has long been known for its skin-perfecting products. Its latest collection, Skin Love, includes a long-lasting, medium-coverage foundation that conceals imperfections and delivers a mix of soothing ginger, quenching avocado oil, moisture-balancing melon extract and brightening vitamin C.

Eye Opener

If you can’t stand cakey-looking concealer under your eyes, then you’ll love Rodial’s new Diamond Liquid Concealer. Made with hydrating vitamin E, it comes in five shades, blends seamlessly on the skin and contains a super-fine reflective powder for a filter-like effect.

Simply dust some powder onto the high points of your face (cheekbones, brow bones and the bridge of your nose) to make your features pop.
