Fast Beauty Fixes
To Stay Fresh
When your antiperspirant fails you (or the day turns way more muggy than you had anticipated), run a DermaDoctor Med e Tate wipe across your underarms. The single-serve packets contain aluminum zirconium tetrachlorohydrex glycine, a superstrong―but safe―sweat inhibitor. You can even use them on the bottoms of your feet.

To Wake Up Tired Eyes
Smashbox’s dual-purpose Eye Beam Double-Ended Brightener lets you shade the “inner rims” (the corners and bottom lash lines) of your eyes with one tip, then highlight the brow bones with the other. Just a light application will have you looking well rested, even when you’re not.
To buy: $22, smashbox.com.
To Polish Up Nails Without Polish
When there just isn’t enough time to get a manicure, swipe Essie’s Disappearing Trick on your dried cuticles. The conditioning treatment removes excess cuticles and is hydrating, too, so you can skip cuticle cream.
To buy: $8, essie.com.
To Keep Blemishes Under Cover
When a morning application isn’t enough to get you through the day, carry Tarte’s At Ease Calming Concealer for touch-ups on the go. The formula is infused with an anti-redness peptide that not only camouflages blemishes but also helps reduce inflammation.

To Make Lip Color Stay Put
After applying Too Faced’s Lip Insurance Lip Primer, you’ll never see your favorite shade on the rim of a glass again. Bonus: The vitamin E–enriched formula keeps lips moisturized.
To buy: $19, sephora.com.
To Diffuse Fine Lines
To quickly diminish wrinkles, apply Olay Regenerist Filling + Sealing Wrinkle Treatment. This silicone-based salve moisturizes and plumps skin to help it appear lineless. Dab it around your eyes, along the sides of your mouth, or across your forehead.
To buy: $22, drugstore.com.
