  • Dismiss all preconceived notions of cakey, pore-clogging makeup and try this cheeky brand's first liquid foundation, infused with SPF 25 and vitamins C and E. It's lightweight enough to let your skin breathe, yet provides plenty of coverage. Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow brightening makeup, $34, at Benefit, 454 West Broadway between W Houston and Prince Sts (212-769-1111, benefitcosmetics.com)

  • Some exfoliators can feel too harsh on sensitive skin, but this cleanser is packed with moisturizing honey, olive oil and green tea, leaving your skin soft, smooth and not at all irritated. Apivita Queen Bee Mild Exfoliating and Rejuvenating Cream, $120, at Patricia Field, 302 Bowery between Bleecker and E Houston Sts (212-966-4066)

  • The sight of faux nails might bring back super-glue-filled memories of your experimental middle-school days, but these press-ons are a major upgrade. It takes just a few minutes to swipe your digits with the enclosed alcohol prep pad, peel off the sticky tabs and place them on your nail beds. File or cut them down for an even more natural look. When they start to feel loose in about a week, simply strip them off. Broadway Nails imPRESS press-on manicure sets, $6--$8 each, at Duane Reade, locations throughout the city; visit duanereade.com

    Get in on the coral trend for spring without looking reflective orange. Since it's made with cupuau butter, derived from Brazilian trees, the product is moisturizing and doesn't dry up like other lipsticks. Make Up for Ever Rouge Artist Natural lipstick in Folk, $19, at sephora.com

  • Skip a hair-washing day---or two---thanks to the first dry shampoo from this all-natural brand. Just squeeze some powder into your hands and rub it across your scalp. Corn flour and talc absorbs oil, while citrus fragrances leave a fresh scent. We recommend using it before you get dressed, since the powder can get messy. Lush No Drought dry shampoo, $13, at Lush, locations throughout the city; visit lush.com

  • Whether you have aging skin or are just getting a head start on preventing wrinkles, anyone can benefit from this botanical-rich serum. Rub four to six drops all over your face before bed, and you'll wake up to a softer visage. Dermalogica Overnight Repair serum, $60, at Dermalogica, 110 Grand St between Broadway and Mercer St (212-219-9800, dermalogica.com)

    Perfect for on-the-go beauty touch-ups, this blush-and-highlighter duo makes getting a rosy glow a cinch. Pop off the top for a pearly blush and unscrew the cap for a perfect brow-bone highlighter. Plus, it's packed with skin-brightening maracuj oil, which comes from passion-fruit seeds, and vitamin-E, which acts as a natural anti-inflammatory. Tarte Maracuja Blush and Glow brightening luminizer and cheek tint, $32, at Sephora, locations throughout the city; visit sephora.com

  • No-frills Japanese chain Muji---known for its well-priced housewares and office supplies---has launched two natural skin-care lines (one that's organic and another for sensitive skin). Our top pick is the former's moisturizer that contains hydrating aloe vera and calming essential oils, such as lavender and peppermint. We especially love that it's free of mineral oils and artificial colors. Muji organic moisturizing lotion, $32, at Muji, locations throughout the city; visit muji.com

  • Fake eight hours of sleep with this bargain drugstore find. The under-eye concealer lightens dark circles and calms the skin with chamomile extract. L'Oral Paris Magic Lumi Highlighter, $14, at Duane Reade, locations throughout the city; visit duanereade.com

  • Get super-straight locks or Gisele-caliber waves with this fancy flatiron. The ceramic plates move with your hair, protecting your strands against heat damage and dreaded creases. The punchy floral pattern---borrowed from a Cynthia Rowley spring 2012 runway print---also looks chic on a bathroom shelf. Amika x Cynthia Rowley ceramic styler, $115, at Sephora, locations throughout the city; visit sephora.com
