    1. Covergirl + Olay 3-in-1 Foundation hydrates and evens skin tone with a single pump. Swap your go-to foundation with this dewy delight.

    Promising review: "I was so pleased when I saw what your Simply Ageless foundation did for my face! I have been using it and the primer for about a year but never took a picture. I will be 73 in June. Never had any type of facelift, never used Botox. I use your primer and Simply Ageless and get flawless coverage. These results make me feel like a much younger woman. And it's fun to still care what I look like when I dress to go out." —Foxy Senior

    Price: $12.57+ (available in nine shades)

    2. L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Original Satin Lipstick goes on rich and stays looking creamy from day to night. The best-selling formula is made with nourishing argan oil, vitamin E, and omega 3, ensuring lips look plump and dewy during and after each and every wear.

    Promising review: "'Saucy Mauve' is a beautiful mauve shade with rich pigment and color pay off. IT IS STUNNING. I had to reapply after eating but that was it. It's super long-lasting and stayed on all day. I received so many compliments when I wore this lipstick. It felt very comfortable and smooth on. I just love it!" –Darian Jeanneret

    $5.97 (available in 42 colors)

    3. Coty Airspun Translucent Loose Face Powder sets makeup for a flawless finish every time. Let's be real, you shouldn't settle for anything less.


    Promising review: "This is by far the best setting powder I have ever used. It really makes all the difference. I love how my makeup looks when I use this to set it. I was scared that the color would be too light for my medium tone, like most 'translucent' shades are, but this is pretty good. It sets my makeup and does not change the shade or leave a white cast to my skin. I use a fluffy powder brush to pat and gently buff this in. I also like the puff that comes with it and use it for a touch ups which I hardly ever need to do when I use this." –ShopsAlot505

    Price: $5.97 (available in six shades)

    4. L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara creates the darkest, lushest lashes in a single swipe. Plus, it never clumps.

    Promising review: "I love this mascara! I have naturally long eyelashes and I struggle to find a mascara that doesn't clump my eyelashes up but still gives me volume! This applies smooth and is easy to remove at the end of the day. I've used many expensive mascara brands but nothing compares to the L'Oréal mascara." –Sammie1995

    Price: $9.97 (available in four colors)

    5. NYX Professional Makeup Makeup Setting Spray seals whatever makeup you apply so that it lasts for hours on end without a single smudge in sight. Just be sure to spritz it from a distance so as to not soak your freshly-applied #MOTN.


    Promising review: "I always buy the matte spray to seal in my makeup. Paired with the Can't Stop Won't Stop foundation and primer, my face stays snatchedddd!" –dmbdolls

    Price: $8.47

    6. Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Liquid Foundation creates medium shine-free coverage that never cakes. Best of all, it's sold in dozens of shades to ensure you'll find your perfect match.

    Promising review: "I've been using this foundation for years and NOTHING compares. I've tried other, more prestigious brands but none of them top this product. My skin looks flawless." –jamy20

    Price: $5.94 (available in 40 shades)

    7. Milani Pure Passion Eyeshadow Palette is the affordable dupe you've been looking for. The shadow quality is unbeatable for the price, making it a must for all makeup bags.

    Promising review: "I love this palette. Finding a lot of matte shades like this is not easy, especially at such a great price. They blend so well, together and with other products. The colors make beautiful, professional looks. Also a lot of great transition shades." –Mary

    Price: $14.97 (available in four shades)

    8. Rimmel Stay Glossy Lip Gloss promises up to six hours of color and shine. The sculpting wand makes applying the non-sticky product easier than ever, so you never have to worry about messy edges.

    Promising review: "This is the lip gloss I keep coming back to month after month. The colors suit me and the amount of gloss is perfect. I don't like a rich color or very high gloss for everyday wear and this Rimmel is just the perfect balance." –DonnaR

    Price: $3.97 (available in 12 shades)

    9. Maybelline Color Sensational Made For All Lipstick compliments all skin tones, making it a must for y-o-u (and your bestie, too). The brand tested all of the pigments on 50 diverse skin tones to ensure color payoff that always looks stunning, never drab or washed out.

    Promising review: "I love this lipstick. It's great like the rest of Maybelline's lipstick lines. It's lightweight. It fades nicely and its not drying. I have light medium skin with olive undertones; the colour suits me well as they claimed to be. I would recommend this to others." –sunchild

    Price: $5.64 (available in seven colors)

    10. NYX Professional Makeup Total Control Drop Foundation offers buildable, sheer-to-full coverage so that you can tailor your application to your personal preference. This velvety, cruelty-free vegan formula is a fan-fave.


    Promising review: "This foundation goes on smooth and really gives you an airbrush finish. I also brought the special brush that can be purchased along with it and I was very happy! I would purchase this again and I would definitely recommend this product to my clients. A little goes a long way so I am confident that it will last for a long time to come!" –tcmaas

    Price: $3.59 (available in 30 shades)

    11. Real Techniques Makeup Setting Brush helps create an airbrushed finish thanks to its feather-soft synthetic bristles. Use it with your favorite finishing powder or highlighter for an ethereal end look.


    Promising review: "I have had mine for quite a while and it's still going strong! It has not had any shedding problems or fallen apart yet. I love this brush for highlighting and for setting underneath the eye! I think I'm going to need to buy a few more just so I always have a clean one on hand." –Natcat29

    Price: $3.99

    12. Covergirl LashBlast Volume Mascara makes natural lashes look like falsies thanks to its 10x magnifying brush. Set your old mascara aside and make room for this staple.

    Promising review: "I like this mascara because I can do a quick swoop for day or layer it on for the evening. The brush is a little large and the bristles seem short but it works really well so I guess the design helps. It doesn't clump or flake and washes off easily with my face wash." –mmf31289

    Price: $6.22 (available in four colors)

    13. Maybelline Dream Radiant Liquid Medium Coverage Hydrating Foundation works especially well for people with dry skin. The noncomedogenic formula is made with hyaluronic acid and collagen, so it's pretty much a skincare dream in makeup form.

    Promising review: "I am absolutely thrilled with this product. Normally I'm a premium foundation kind of girl, and I have been for decades. But after using this I'm sold and I'm switching. This shade matches my skin tone really well and hides all my sunspots, of which I have plenty. It also has hyaluronic acid and collagen as ingredients and that makes me feel good about the quality. And by the end of the day its all still in place. 10/10 here!" —amandage237

    Price: $10.98 (available in 10 shades)

    14. Burt's Bees 100% Natural Moisturizing Lip Shimmer layers on hydrating ingredients and a subtle kiss of color that hundreds of reviewers swoon over. It's the perfect option for anyone hoping to add a pop of color to their pout without full coverage.

    Promising review: "This lip shimmer adds such an amazing color to my lips but feels lightweight. It's the perfect balance between a chapstick and lipstick. The color lasts a long time, even after drinking my morning coffee. It has the classic flavor you would expect from Burt's Bees but with that perfect shimmer. This color is gorgeous and very neutral. Great for any skin tone!" —Kiwinator

    Price: $4.74 (available in eight colors)

    15. NYX Professional Makeup Micro Brow Pencil delivers life-like brow strokes that you have to see to believe. Tip: Use soft, short strokes to create the dreamiest, most realistic arches ever.

    Price: $4.31 (available in eight shades)

    Promising review: "I have been using this for over six months. It works great for hiding dark circles under my eyes. I can see the difference immediately. I bought this in the color of Honey. I recommend this if you have tired-looking eyes—it even helps with wrinkles. It's very light and easy to apply and blend with the sponge applicator on top." —MomFromBG

    Price: $7.97 (available in 11 shades)

    17. L'Oréal Paris Makeup Summer Belle Makeup Collection Blush Please! helps create a rosy accent that looks fresh off the beach. And thanks to the formula's ultra-fine shimmer, one swipe of the peachy hue delivers a summer glow any time of year.


    Promising review: "I am so impressed with this blush! It gives me the most beautiful healthy glow. It doesn't accentuate my skin pores/texture. It's just beautiful! I've been using it every day since I got it and absolutely loving it." –Elbiana

    Price: $9.99 (available in two shades)

    18. Laura Geller New York Bronze-N-Brighten Bronzer contours and illuminates fair to light and medium to dark skin tones in the most heavenly way. The marbled powder features a blend of warm cocoa and cream shades in varying depths to deliver a glow that's every bit sun-kissed and never orange.


    Promising review: "Love this bronzer. I have very fair skin and it blends beautifully. I wear it all year long everyday. I add a bit of blush on top with a bit of highlighter. I've been wearing it for years. The two things I can't live without. This bronzer and my concealer." —Larakg206

    Price: $31.95 (available in two shades)

    19. Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer creates medium-to-full coverage without weighing skin down. Depending on the occasion, you can apply layers of this dual-purpose product for your perfect #MOTD.


    Promising review: "This foundation is the only one I ever find myself reaching for. I've tried all different types of foundations from Becca Cosmetics, Urban Decay All Nighter, Maybelline Fit Me — you name it and I've probably tried it. But I only ever use this one. I've emptied two bottles already and just bought another one this morning. This foundation always looks flawless and gives me the dewy look I'm searching for. It has WONDERFUL coverage. I have minimal skin issues besides the occasional pimple and some acne scars, though. So I can't speak for people with dark spots, major acne, etc. But again, I love it and I would buy this product a thousand times over." –Kenzie

    Price: $5.34+ (available in 40 shades)

    20. NYX Professional Makeup Suede Matte Lip Liner defines lips and can even be used as a lip plumper. Pair it with a matching lipstick or stick to your favorite gloss to embrace the back-and-better-than-ever '90s lip trend.


    Promising review: "I bought this online a couple of months ago and I have fallen in love with it. It is so true to color and so smooth and non-drying!! The matte finish stays for hours and I never cease to get lots of compliments, no matter what shade I wear! I am a Liquid Suede addict!!" –Lalalarori

    Price: $2.12 (available in 18 colors)

    21. L'Oréal Paris Infallible 24 Hour Fresh Wear Foundation offers all-day coverage that won't budge in humidity, crowded trains, or any other sweaty situations. It's oil-free ~and~ formulated with SPF, making it a major win in our book.

    Promising review: "This foundation is long-lasting. Now, I didn't wear it for 24 hours (I don't know anyone who really does), but for the morning 'til night that I wore it, it didn't need any touch up at all. My skin is combination so my dry areas felt moisturized and my oily areas were controlled. The foundation went on very easily and covered all of my large pores. My skin felt smooth and the foundation did not streak. I love that it comes in a pump form which makes it very easy to control the amount that I need." –Felita1

    Price: $11.48 (available in 30 shades)

    22. NYX Professional Makeup Matte Lipstick creates the perfect matte lip. Unlike some brands, NYX creates a shine-free lip look without drying out your pout.

    Price: $2.55 (available in 12 colors)

    23. Wet n Wild MegaGlo Highlighting Powder adds an angelic glow wherever it's applied. And if you opt for one of the peachy hues, it can even double as a blush.

    Promising review: "This highlighter was perfect for a natural or more extreme glow. With one layer it is more subtle especially if you use blush over it but for a more intense look, apply a layer and spray a finishing spray, reapply and spray again if desired. It is great for an everyday look:) I'd stack up on these! My skin is dry and oily with acne, often sensitive but this did not cause me to break out! I love it. Also, it is very hard to hit pan with this product. I go ham on it and it looks brand new even after daily use for about two months!" –Jennizippy

    Price: $4.68+ (available in seven colors)

    24. Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder keeps skin looking even and shine-free for up to five hours. Made with natural minerals, the lightweight formula is designed to shrink the appearance of pores and blur complexion imperfections.

    Promising review: "I love this powder. It lasts a long time and doesn't cake in the lines on my face. The price is wonderful, especially compared to the Lancome powder I used to buy. The container does open a little too easily. It can be used with a brush or a puff. I plan to order again." —JstJayne

    Price: $3.97 (available in nine colors)

    25. Covergirl Perfect Point PLUS Eyeliner accentuates eyes and promises to never smear in the process — unless, of course, you purposefully try to with the included smudger tip. In other words, get ready to say hello to your new favorite smoky eye essential.

    Promising review: "These pencils last a long time, easy to hold and handle, they are adjusted manually by just simply turning and clicking into place. Easy breezy, no sharpeners or anything to worry with and nice plastic caps on each end to protect and keep clean. My make-up must have. I will highly recommend to anyone." —Sherber523

    Price: $4.94 (available in five colors)

    26. Revlon Colorstay Skinny Liquid Eyeliner helps create the perfect wingtip with its ultra-fine tip and silky-smooth formula. Just be sure to keep eye makeup remover nearby for touch-ups, as the budge-proof formula is built to last.


    Promising review: "I have been searching for this liner my whole life!! I love the long, super flexible felt tip. It's the perfect eyeliner for a crisp, pointy cat eye. The ink is super opaque and will not budge or crack all day. I work two jobs and can wear this eyeliner all day and trust that it will hold up." –Sam42

    Price: $5.97 (available in four colors)

    27. e.l.f. Powder Blush Palette lets you chisel your cheeks to perfection with a foursome of blushes. Choose one or layer all four for your very own custom blend.


    Promising review: "I love this palette! It has four beautiful shades. Two cooler tone wintery shades and two warmer tone summery shades. One thing that I really love about this pallet is the pans pop out of the pallet, so if you have multiple e.l.f. palettes (the contour pallet, the bronzing palette, the illuminating palette, etc.) you can make your own palette. This makes it perfect for travel!" –Pale

    Price: $7

    28. Maybelline SuperStay 24hr 2-Step Lipcolor delivers all the color with none of the feathery smudges. The pearlescent formula is hydrating as heck, so it not only makes your lips look fab during wear but after too.

    Promising review: "I have tried several brands that never last as long as this product. I have been wearing the 24-hour in different shades for over a year now. A little goes a long way. I get compliments on this lipstick all of the time. Most people are amazed when I'm eating because you don't see a stain on the glass or straw and it's not rubbed off by the time I'm done eating" —Dani1126

    Price: $7.98 (available in 24 colors)

    29. e.l.f. Baked Highlighter makes cheekbones glisten to the high heavens. The pearlescent finish blends easily into skin and stays equally bright well into the night.

    Promising review: "Great job e.l.f.! These are beautiful, affordable highlighters to add a gorgeous glow. Not too pearly, shimmery, shiny or too glittery, these blend well to create a soft, natural-looking sheen. With a brush, they apply sheer, but I prefer to use my clean, dry fingertips, swiping right over the dome to apply the pigment right where I want. On my oily skin, the glow lasted for several hours before needing a light touch up." –ASH

    Price: $4 (available in three colors)

    30. L'Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer bottles the most natural-looking, sun-kissed complexion in a pretty nude tube. Blend a dollop on the high points of your face as a highlighter, or divvy it up across your entire complexion for a fresh-faced glow.

    Promising review: "The new LumiGlow Glotion is so beautiful! It gives your face an all over radiant illumizing glow that looks gorgeous! You can use it alone, mixed with a foundation, or on top of your skin as a highlight. It's super creamy and pigmented and actually lasts all day long! This is my favorite product out of the LumiGlow collection and I will definitely be purchasing it once I run out." –JacquieH25

    Price: $11.44 (available in four shades)

    31. And Black Radiance True Complexion Soft Focus Finishing Powder sets makeup without washing out medium-to-dark complexions or causing flashback. If you've never been able to find the perfect finishing powder, this is it.


    Promising review: "I brought this on a whim while restocking on my BR primer (another must have) and I'm so happy that I did. My face looked airbrushed. And I didn't have an ashy look to my face. True to color and happy my 'face' matches my neck. You don't need much, only con is fallout so gently swirl your brush into it. Other than that it's a new staple in my collection." –Keke33

    Price: $4.16 (available in three colors)
