- The latest complexion enhancers
will take you seamlessly from summer to fall with a model-perfect finish. By SUZANNE SCOTT
The compact foundation
With the return of the classic powder compact, there is no excuse for your skin to look anything but immaculate. Our favorite new foundation is mattifying, enhancing and the perfect warm beige to enliven a paler complexion. It will keep shine at bay in hot weather and add a pretty flush to your cheeks when that summer glow has gone, too.
Try: Givenchy Teint Couture Long-Wearing Compact Foundation.
If you only do one thing, buy Le Métier de Beauté's duo palette. With two classic shades (bronze and pink), it's the perfect balance between a tan-enhancing bronzer and complexion-warming blush. To contour, use Kevyn Aucoin's Large Blush/Powder Brush to sweep the bronzer over the hollows of your cheeks and the blush on the apples.
Try: Le Métier de Beauté Blushing Bronzed Duet.
