    24 Products For People Who Love Makeup, But Suck At Putting It On

    There are LOTS of us out there, OK?!

    1. A sheer lip color that'll be super easy to control (and even layer!!!) but look like a just-blotted lipstick.

    2. A winged eyeliner stamp in case you've spent what feels like an eternity working on your flick to no avail.

    3. Hands-free eyeshadows shields I saw a MUA use on Theresa from The Real Housewives of New Jersey on an ep when she was giving her a seriously smokey eye that had ZERO fallout. So plz sign me up.

    4. A six-pack of makeup sponges that — when damp — can help blend your foundation into a filter-like finish.

    5. A holographic stick that'll serve as both blush and highlighter because you deserve both in one simple step that'll make you look like the most glamorous alien super villain ever. (A look worth vying for every day, tbh.)

    6. A bronzing moisturizer if you can't quite seem to find the right balance between pallid and orange when applying bronzer.

    7. A holy grail concealer that makeup obsessives have been raving about since it launched because it's so easy to use and ACTUALLY stays put. I too have jumped on the bandwagon. Won't you join us?!

    8. A Play by Sephora subscription as a chance to try out new beauty products without dealing with returns if you're not into them.

    9. A simple eyebrow plumper with a teeny brush so you can shape and fill your brows (*just* the hairs!) without feeling cartoonish.

    10. Or a holy grail clear brow shaper if your brows are already lush, but those lil' hairs never seem to stay put.

    11. A magnifying lighted mirror to help ensure that your brow-filling product is going exactly where you intend.

    12. And a folding, lighted compact so you won't have to feel like you're making out with the office bathroom mirror when you're touching up your eyeliner before happy hour.

    13. An SPF 35 CC cream for when you want coverage but don't wanna bother with the arduous task of blending a full face of foundation.

    14. A super simple cream-to-powder eyeshadow stick in case you watch mesmerizing Insta makeup videos over and over again but are unsure about dropping $125 on an eyeshadow palette rn.

    15. A waterproof eyeshadow primer that'll keep that perfectly blended eyeshadow (LOOK AT YOU!) in place.

    16. A universal lip liner that can combat feathering and fading without having to match up liners with lippies. It's 2019. Let's not waste our time on that, k?

    17. Or a lip liner that's soft but saturated enough to fill in your lips and eliminate the need for lipstick!

    18. A blurring primer for helping smooth out pores and fine lines for a smooth foundation application.

    19. A translucent setting powder people of color swear by thanks to the way it'll blend in perfectly with zero flashback and keep your foundation set for life. Jk. Just the day. But still!

    20. And a matte setting spray to make it look like you're not sweating it, EVEN IN FLORIDA HUMIDITY.

    21. A lip sleeping mask to moisturize and smooth your lips the night before you wear a bold lip. Or the night after you wear a bold lip. Or just for some chapped lips relief!

    22. A makeup-erasing pen for keeping tiny flecks of eyeliner from ruining your perfectly concealed under eyes and having to start all over again.

    23. A makeup-erasing cloth that'll take off a whole face at the end of the day (or just in case you want to start fresh) with *just* water. So it's environmentally friendly AND super soft on your skin.

    24. And a cinch-able cosmetic bag you can use as a handy surface anywhere to catch spills.

    When someone (correctly) tells you that your makeup looks amazing.
