  • Airbrush Away Primer – An affordable version of expensive primers stars wear on the red carpet, this is an easy way to even out skin tone and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.  Especially nice for the selfie-obsessed, since you never know when you’ll be on-camera.  It comes in three different formulas (I wear the Pore Refining version every single day).  ($19.99)
