9 Product Hacks To Resuscitate Your Beauty Look

In a perfect world, the makeup we put on at 8 a.m., long-wear or otherwise, would be the makeup we take off before bed. Sadly, we do not live in that dream land — we live in a world where it seems like the entire universe is conspiring to sabotage our carefully applied and crafted cosmetics.

None of us wants to have to tote our entire makeup bag with us for midday touch-ups — our purses are already heavy enough. The good news is you don't have to: Whether your aesthetic assassin is sweat, oil, or even too many hours under your office’s fluorescent lights, there are some simple ways to resuscitate your look thanks to the latest makeup defibrillators.

These special items revive a wilting face and are perfectly portable, so you can refresh your face on the go. Next time you need to go from the boardroom to the bar like a Day-to-Night Barbie, you’re gonna want these in your arsenal.
