How Much Makeup Do You Need? Only The Essentials

What: Artistry Essentials Makeup Kit, $59

Why: Let me tell you a story: It starts with a 24-hour stomach virus and ends with a sleep-deprived girl trying to save her Saturday night. (I'll spare you the details in between.) This happened to me last weekend, but with killer dinner reservations and reliable baby sitter already scheduled, I wasn't about to let a little exhaustion get in the way of my night on the town.

But no matter how much caffeine I chugged, my face still told the story of my sleepless night. The bags under my eyes looked especially viscious. So I whipped out the Artistry Essentials kit I'd received the day before and decided to put the products to the ultimate test.

Now the brains behind this mineral brand say their aim is to help a woman pare down her makeup to a limited amount of well-made products. This kit (the items will be sold separately starting in January) includes concealer, powder foundation, eyeshadow, blush, mascara, and lip gloss. So I followed their step-by-step instructions included in a booklet, and, with ten mintues to go, tried to do something to improve my situation.

Amazingly, it worked. I was shocked, but I actually looked well-rested and ready to go. And, despite the concealer being heavy enough to really camouflage the Birkin bags hanging under my eyes, my skin still looked fresh. So you can now count me amongst the converted. This handy kit now serves as my travel essentials thanks to its compact size, and the concealer especially hasn't left my side since. Now if only these geniuses could figure out a way to make me feel as good as I look…any ideas?
