La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel Cleanser for Oily Skin

Stila Eyes Are The Window Shadow Palette

Each Stila Eyes Are the Window Palette holds 12 highly pigmented shades that will flatter a wide range of skin tones and irises.

Colorescience Sunforgettable Mineral SPF 30 Sunscreen Brush

You're most likely not reapplying sunscreen as often as you should (for the record, it's every two hours) throughout the day. We know, we, know, you're not at the beach or sunbathing in the park. But if you have a window seat at the office, or took a stroll to get coffee today, then you most definitely need more. To make it easier, there's this powdered mineral sunscreen that can go right on top of your makeup, or previously applied skin care, without messing with your whole look. Even better, it's safe for the environment, so you don't have to feel guilty about adding to the mass epidemic of coral reef bleaching.
