  • L’eclisse Cosmetics Pressed Mineral Foundation, $57 – This silky-smooth foundation travels as elegantly on your skin as it does in your purse (seriously, the compact looks like a beautiful, sparkly, blinged out jewel). It has buildable coverage and is formulated without oil, talc, fragrances, or synthetic dyes.

  • Liliy Lolo BB Cream & Mascara $22; $20 –  I’m smitten as a kitten with this beauty brand. Their BB Cream is DIVINE! It’s silicone-free, has natural SPF 15, and is packed with nourishing and anti-ageing ingredients as well as mineral pigments to help blur imperfections and even skin tone. It can be used for light coverage or under your foundation for added coverage. Lily Lolo’s Mascara is super soft and creamy and doesn’t have any artificial gunk ingredients, just long lasting color with a smooth texture.
