Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Winter Glow in Shade 0 ($68) lends the face the kind of enviable natural-looking radiance one might get only from a fairy godmother. “Many women have very pale skin, where even Maestro Fusion in Shade 2 is too visible, so I wanted to do something that was very, very pale,” says Linda Cantello, international makeup artist for Giorgio Armani. Maestro Fusion functions as a subtle illuminator and can also adjust or lighten the shade of another foundation or tinted moisturizer. “Existing whites on the market were always chalky and difficult to blend; you ended up looking like a clown,” says Cantello. “The new pearl formula is a luminous white matte instead of a shimmer.” And you don’t have to be Snow White to wear it well. No time for an eye “rejuvenation” before tonight’s rager? Neotensil ($500 for 49 applications) is an at-home firming gel duo (think Spanx for the eyes) that creates a smoothing polymer film under eyes to eradicate puffiness and darkness for up to 16 hours. Conceived by an MIT and Harvard brain trust and launched by Living Proof, it’s probably already a (secret) red-carpet staple. Start scrutinizing celebrity photos now. LIZA HERZ
