Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer-
I never used primer until I went on tour with Madonna. She would perform a high-energy show for over two hours, and I was searching for a product that would ensure that her makeup would stay on throughout the entire performance. I finally stumbled across Veil Mineral Primer. It preps skin beautifully and renders your makeup completely water-resistant. It also hydrates skin, fills in wrinkles and minimizes pores. It even eliminates the redness, which is a huge benefit to many women. It’s my number one secret weapon for flawless makeup.

Editor's note: The following post is written by our new guest writer, celebrity makeup artist Gina Brooke.

Beauty products have a shelf life, so begin by taking stock of your makeup and eliminate anything that was purchased more than two years ago (especially foundations with SPF). Next inspect your mascara wands, and toss away any older than three months. Finally, have a good hard look at your makeup brushes. If they have not been washed regularly, they are most likely bacteria receptacles. Out they go, too. Now that's done, here are five game-changing products that will enhance the way you look and feel.
