Beauty essentials no girl can live without

Seeing as we’re not really the blushing type, it’s natural that we’d turn to Stila’s Convertible Color ($25) to imbue our cheeks with a coquettish flush. Available in a bevy of flattering shades, the compact also does double-duty as a dewy lip stain. We suggest applying it with fingers to keep coverage even and well-blended.
