Let’s hear it for 2013. I love a clean slate (as a makeup artist is that any surprise?) and this time of year always inspires me to make a fresh start. After the excitement of the past few months, it’s the perfect time to take stock and refocus. That feeling was the inspiration behind the new Brighten, Sparkle & Glow Collection. Designed to give you an instant lift—both inside and out—it’ll put you on the right track to having your best year yet.
You know how a gorgeous piece of jewelry takes an outfit to another level? That’s the idea behind Brighten, Sparkle & Glow. Worn on their own or together (it’s hard to stop at just one), these products give you a radiance that adds sparkle to special occasions and is the perfect pick-me-up for everyday too.
Of course, getting the perfect glow also starts from within. Staying hydrated is essential for fresh, glowing skin, so try to drink at least eight glasses of water a day. Try adding fresh lemon juice and a pinch of sea salt to each glass (this is a great tip I learned from one of my favorite health gurus). And, what’s good for your body is good for your skin. Choose dark leafy greens, fruits, whole grains and lean proteins. Last but not least, exercise doesn’t just build muscle and help you stay fit— it lifts your mood, helps you sleep better, reduces stress and improves your circulation. And all of that makes for a healthier-looking complexion.
Let’s start the year right by starting off Bright.

Dab this do-it-all balm on lips, cheeks and lids to seal makeup with a healthy, dewy glow. The ultimate antidote to wintertime dryness, its luxurious formula delivers rich moisture and intense hydration.
Our favorite fix for under-eye darkness, a touch or two provides lovely light coverage and a luminous finish. And now, thanks to a new built-in brush, it’s easier than ever to apply. Find your perfect match with one of 10 shades, including the brand new Porcelain Bisque.
This creamy-luxe powder gives eyes a pretty pearlescent finish. In a glittery assortment of shades including Ballet Pink, Black Chocolate, Cement, Silver Moon and the new Gold Star, each one is designed to maximize luminescence and highlight eyes with the perfect amount of pop.
Beautifully defined brows frame your face and give you instant polish. New shade Brunette is the perfect rich brown hue to add structure that’s soft, not severe.
More than just a pretty face, this powder palette is formulated with skin-brightening plant extracts to give you a healthy glow from the inside out. In Brightening Nudes and new shade Porcelain Pearl, it’s our pick for instant illumination for any skin tone.
As the name suggests, this lush gloss packs plenty of shimmery goodness into a sleek little package. In Bare, it complements every skin tone and layers beautifully over a bold lip or a more natural one.
