meet our editors

I sometimes think I’ve tried out every lotion, potion, and lipstick under the sun—after all, I’ve been a beauty editor for more than 10 years, and it’s my job to see what’s trending and figure out what works best. But putting together our big Beauty School package was eye-opening in an unexpected way: I realized that no matter how advanced we get, going back to relearn the simple things we think we’ve mastered is, often counterintuitively, essential for a fresh perspective. One of the best parts of this job is that it’s like an education that never ends—just when you think you know it all, there’s always something new and exciting to uncover. And that’s what we get to share with you. One of my favorite discoveries you’ll see on…

DO! NOURISH AT NIGHT “Moisturize with rich creams and oils in the evening,” advises MAC Cosmetics senior makeup artist Nicole Thompson. “In the morning, use a lightweight lotion or hydrating primer, since too much moisture can cause makeup to slide off your skin.” A+ PRODUCT PICK MAYBELLINE NEW YORK Master Primer Hydrate + Smooth Primer, $10, drugstores DON’T!

Q HOW DO I FIND THE RIGHT SHADE? A: Let your jewelry be your cue. “Whatever color looks best on you—silver, rose gold, or gold—is your ideal highlighter shade,” explains makeup artist Ashlee Glazer, global artistic director for Laura Geller. As a guide, silver looks gorge on fair skin, rose gold flatters medium skin, and bronze or gold pops on darker skin tones. (Check out our recs here.) FOR MEDIUM SKIN TONES Q WHEN SHOULD I PUT IT ON? A: At the end of your makeup routine, as the finishing touch. Q WHAT KIND SHOULD I USE? A: It comes down to your skin type and personal preference, Glazer says. Liquids and creams are easiest to blend. They can be mixed with foundation (good if you’re just starting out), and their dewy texture works well on dry skin. Powders…

STEP 1 1 REMOVE MAKEUP Most makeup repels water and moisture (to withstand sweat and humidity), so you’ll need to precleanse with an oil-based remover to break down the long-wear pigments and polymers, explains Shari Marchbein, M.D., a dermatologist in New York City. A+ PRODUCT PICKS FOR FACE: NO7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Oil, $12, FOR EYES: DIOR Life Triple Impact Eye Makeup Remover, $34, STEP 2 2 WASH On damp skin, gently massage a nickel-size amount of cleanser in small circles from hairline down to neck, focusing on the T-zone, where you’re most likely to have clogged pores, Dr. Marchbein suggests.
