The Photographer's Muse: Top Beauty Products for Posing + Lanvin on Sale at Barneys

If you have places to go and people to see, surely an army of cell phone cameras follows you wherever you go. How doth one shine brighter than one's companions in a photograph? Here's a few tips.

Highlighters and Illuminators

Highlighters and illuminators create a subtle, healthy-looking sheen on your skin, perfect for one-upwomanship. You can apply Nars Illuminator in Laguna across your cheekbones, nose and forehead.  Also, Benefit Cosmetics Girl Meets Pearl Luminizer is another great pick for lookin' amazin'. When the camera clicks, you will be sure to sparkle.

The Perfect Red Lipstick

It's impossible to go unnoticed in a photo when you wear red lipstick. If you're feeling bold, Ellis Faas Creamy Lips L103 is a brilliant, true red. Or heat up the night with Tarte LipSurgence Lip Tint in Fiery

Facebook-Friendly Foundation

Before you put on any makeup at all, prep your face with Nuxe Floral Toning Lotion. Then, to look like a total doll, apply Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover foundation. Blend thoroughly across your face and along your jawline. This rock 'n roll foundation covers up unevenness and blemishes like nobody's business. Who needs Photoshop?

Ready for Your Close-up

Once I read a movie star claim it's impossible to look intensely into a camera with both eyes at the same time. Try using one eye more than the other, and you might notice a difference.

Vanity Is Your Religion

If you followed all of Eyeshadow Government's advice and still don't love your photos, you can fix 'em right away. Aviary is a free web-based Photoshop tool for a little after-the-fact manipulation. Banish red eye, spots and perhaps last week's boyfriend with a click of the mouse. If only real life was that easy!


BARNEYS: There are 123 Lanvin women's items on sale on today and each piece is more divine than the next. My heart skips a beat just looking at 'em.
