For the Perfect Smoky Eye (and More)
You will notice the Starlight Eyeshadow Palette was inspired by the night sky. It includes the shade Constellation, which is perfect just pressed onto your eyelids for some holiday sparkle. It also has neutral shades for every day.
When using the shade Constellation, I like to apply it with my finger—just gently press with your ring finger (because it’s the weakest) to the center of the eye. It’s great worn alone or layered over Satellite or Eclipse to help soften a smoky eye. Aurora and Lunar are great in the inner corners of the eye.
If Eclipse scares you, use it as a liner. I like to get my liner brushes (make sure they are synthetic) from the paint store because they have very precise bristles. Dip your brush in a little water and go along the outside edge of the pan, then apply it as a liner to your lash line.

For Ultimate Lips, Day or Night
The Transforming Duo was inspired by my childhood mood ring. It works on everyone from teenagers to grandmothers. It’s the perfect gift to get someone if you aren’t sure what lip shade they might like. The Transforming Duo adds a touch of pink and enhances your own natural lip color.

For All-Purpose Hydration
Lotus Glow Cleansing Balm is a multitasker and great for travel because it’s TSA approved. It is extremely hydrating and can be used as a cleanser, overnight mask, a moisturizer, or even on your cuticles. Don’t use it sparingly—it’s really perfect for the winter months.

For At-Home Facials
Restore dull tired skin after all the holiday parties. The Overnight Resurfacing Peel is like an instant facial. Use it 2-3 times a week and don’t worry if you miss your facial appointment between all of your holiday travels.

For a Quickie Age Reversal on the Go
To me, makeup looks best when it melts into the skin. Skin tends to be a bit drier in the winter months, so I like to spray the face with Counter+ Brightening Facial Mist before and after makeup to keep your skin hydrated and looking fresh.
