Hide Wrinkles
If you aren't careful, your makeup might enhance your wrinkles. "Avoid powders, which can sink into lines and make you look older," says makeup artist Jemma Kidd. Smooth Good Skin Labs Tri-Aktiline Instant Deep Wrinkle Filler ($39.50) over lines to immediately plump them. Let it absorb and then apply a liquid foundation. We like M.A.C. Studio Sculpt Foundation ($28).

"Prevention is key when it comes to eyes," notes Kidd. Her Firming I-Crème Duo shadows in Silk ($40) are filled with antiaging ingredients like Dermaxyl. And don't forget to treat as you conceal. Chanel Lift Lumière Concealer ($45) reduces the appearance of dark circles with a tetrapepide.

Conceal Breakouts

Maximize Moisture
"Powder can look cakey on dry skin," says Johnson. Instead, use layers of moisture like Stila Hydrating Primer ($34) and Clé de Peau Beauté Cream Foundation ($118), which contains hyaluronic acid.

    • Emily Ratajkowski Cheers on the L.A. Dodgers in a Midriff-Baring Crop Top, Smooches Her Boyfriend in the Stands

      Who says you have to rock a billowing jersey to show your sportsmanship? Not Emily Ratajkowski, who showcased her toned physique as she cheered on the Los Angeles Dodgers at a baseball game in L.A. on Thursday. The model and actress took a minimalist approach to dressing for the sidelines and rocked a black pair of high-waist jeans with a long-sleeve white crop top that showcased her abs. She proudly put forth her support of the hometown team with a black cap that simply read "LA"

    • Saturday Night Live: Tom Hanks Exposes a Surprising Truth About Trump Supporters

      The final debate sketch wasn’t the only time Tom Hanks and Saturday Night Live decided to roast Donald Trump. S.N.L. hasn’t exactly been gentle on Trump supporters this election season. Or did you miss that fake ad last year where the show unflinchingly compared them to Nazis? So, knowing some biting political commentary is coming, it’s surprising to see Tom Hanks—who, earlier in the night, leaned into his gentle, “America’s Dad” persona—put on that red “Make America Great Again” cap for a “Black Jeopardy!” sketch. But, either way, it was good to see Hanks behind the old Jeopardy! podium where he made such a splash playing a dumbed down version of himself opposite Will Ferrell’s Alex Trebek back

    • Women Are Boycotting Ivanka Trump’s Fashion Line — and the Stores That Sell It

      Despite her father’s uncanny ability to offend and alienate women more with each passing day, Ivanka Trump has managed to maintain a relatively high level of respect throughout Donald Trump’s turbulent presidential campaign. Some would say Ivanka has even been the one saving grace for a candidate who is increasingly being viewed as little more than a misogynistic narcissist by many Americans — particularly women.

    • Ariel Winter finally explains why she wore that swimsuit on the red carpet

That’s why we love this explanation of why she wore a swimsuit, shorts, and heels on the red carpet over the summer.

    • Eleanor Roosevelt’s ‘mistress’ died heartbroken and alone

      They called each other “darling,” “dear one” and “heart.” They told each other “je t’aime” and “j’adore,” and wrote more than 3,000 letters to one another. “All day I’ve thought of you . . . Oh! I want to put my arms around you, I ache to hold you close,” the normally reserved Eleanor Roosevelt wrote in March of 1933 to her beloved. No, not her husband, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, but a brilliant, bourbon-drinking, cigarette-smoking Associated Press reporter named Lorena Hickok, or Hick. Their romance is at the center of Susan Quinn’s engrossing double biography, “Eleanor and Hick: The Love Affair That Shaped a First Lady.” While Quinn is not the first to tell the tale of Eleanor and

    • Professor with Remarkable Track Record Predicts a Trump Election Win

      Saturday on Fox & Friends, Tucker Carlson sat down with a college professor with a remarkable record of predicting election outcomes. Professor Helmut Norpoth, from Stony Brook University in New York State, has correctly predicted the outcomes of the last five presidential elections. This year, he steadfastly believes Donald Trump will win the election. Norpoth said he uses two "models" to make his prediction: One is the "primary" model, where he compares a candidate's strength in their respective primaries. "The candidate who does better in his party's primary beats the other guy who does less well," Norpoth said. Looking at New Hampshire and South Carolina's primaries, Norpoth projected that
