    First, let's lay down the *foundation* of our kits: you really can't go wrong with these options that all have cult followings of their own. No matter what, your complexion is about to g-l-o-w!

And you can be sure it'll never crease or fade — it's a cult favorite for a reason! Available in 25 shades.

    * Shape Tape Matte Foundation: This bb sits at the popular table for a reason: It's a MUST for oily, acne-prone skin — almost 1,061 positive reviews swear by this as a full-coverage solution to breakouts. It absorbs oil and shine, refines pores, and nourishes irritated skin with vitamin E. AND it won't ever flake or cake, because you deserve nothing but its ~airbrushed finish~. Don't worry: it's also oil-free — and vegan. Available in 25 shades.

    * Water Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15: Your skin is about to love H20 on a whole new level. This hypoallergenic, vegan formula provides medium coverage and a natural finish — all while nourishing your complexion with powerful antioxidants and pollution defense (courtesy of marine plant extracts). It's 20% water-based, making it gentle yet EFFECTIVE. Available in 30 shades.

    * Clay Stick Foundation: If you're looking for makeup that'll melt into your skin, feel as natural as possible, yet still provide good coverage, this is your new best friend. It neutralizes redness, evens skin tone and hyperpigmentation, minimizes pores, and miraculously hydrates AND mattifies your skin at the same time. How? Its vegan formula of antioxidants and vitamins V and E help *balance* your skin and actually improve it over time. Did I mention you can comfortably wear it for 12 hours? We are truly blessed. Available in 12 shades.

    * Amazonian Clay Airbrush Foundation: Powered by the wildly popular Amazonian clay and light-reflecting gemstones (goodbye, shine), this'll keep your makeup perfectly matte for a wonderful 12 hours. It'll tackle redness, control excess oil, and minimize pores so you don't have to face reapplying makeup. It's weightless, full-coverage, and flake-free. Available in 15 shades.

    I went right for my constant favorite: Shape Tape Matte Foundation, because I'm done wondering if my T-zone can be spotted from space. This'll keep my complexion even, my pores under control, and my whole darn day shine-free. I'm not crying, my eyes are just sweating.


    Plus! If you're a skincare obsessive like me, you can't resist this formula's nourishing vitamin E. Who agrees with me? Oh, only almost 2,075 happy reviewers!

    Promising review: "I am OBSESSED with the Tarte Shape Tape foundation. It is lightweight and VERY full coverage. It covers up all my blemishes with little to no sheerness." —Melody

    Need proof? Just 👏look👏 at👏 that👏 coverage!


    Now it's time for the ~highlight~ of everyone's day — literally! You've got your choice of blushes, highlighters, and even a combination of the both in case you can't choose (because the clock is ticking, my friends).


    * Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush: If you rarely think about blush be prepared to be blown away — especially when you see that this has almost 3,275 positive reviews! Its powder formula lasts allllll day, courtesy of Amazonian clay. It feels super soft, because it's packed with mineral pigments that go on smooth and will make you do nothing but glow. AND it helps control oil and moisturizes your complexion. Color. Me. Impressed. Available in 13 shades.

    * Hamptons Weekender Contour Palette: You no longer need to splurge on a beach vacay to get an ~effortless glow~, thanks to this radiant palette. Its three shades each have a purpose: contour, blush, and highlight. They're long-lasting, buildable, streak-free, and DEFINITELY give you a sun-kissed finish.

    * Amazonian Clay Waterproof 12-Hour Concealer: This shows blemishes, redness, and dark circles the door in just a twist and a swipe thanks to its velvet-matte combo of Amazonian clay and vitamins V and E. It's creamy, blendable, waterproof, and I'll just say it: straight dreamy. And in case you didn't already guess: it lasts for 12 hours. Available in 10 shades.

    * Rainforest of the Sea Radiance Drops: Good news! Becoming a mermaid no longer requires growing a tail — at least when it comes to your ~makeup looks~. This non-greasy, brightening formula of micro-glistening pearls and an antioxidant complex (jojoba oil, coconut, and vitamin E) deliver a natural-looking glow wherever you'd like: cheeks, brow, arms, you name it! It may be a face oil, but you can highlight wherever the heck suits you — reviewers love this for boosting their lipstick! AND it's suitable on oily skin. Bless.

    * Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Highlighter: The glow this gives may be instant, but it'll last a whole 12 hours. It combines Amazonian clay to control shine and micro-pearlescent flecks to brighten your complexion. The only thing this doesn't do is flake or fade. Available in three shades.

    * Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Pressed Finishing Powder: Already a best-seller, this easy-to-apply pressed powder compact swoops in to save the day when you want to fight excess oil and freshen your complexion. It effortlessly blends into any skin tone for a breathable matte finish — don't worry, dry patches and chalky residue aren't invited. It's even oil-free and can be used to help improve skin clarity and texture!

    * Filtered Light Setting Powder: Wake and bake — at least when it comes to your makeup. This weightless (talc-free) formula uses tiny, light-reflecting particles to blur pores and fine lines and brighten dark circles before you've even had your coffee. Its *vanilla-tinted* powder also absorbs shine and sets makeup to a matte finish *and* diffuses light to give your a more ~luminous dimension~, aka you won't shine in photos.

    * Twinkle Stick Highlighter: Multitask in just a swipe, courtesy of this creamy highlighting and strobing stick. It's powered by coconut, vitamin E, and apple and marine extracts to produce a long-wearing glow. Its micropearl flecks even activate with your body heat so all you need is your fingertips to swipe and blend. Color me IMPRESSED. Available in two shades.

    I chose the Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush so I'm rewarded the whole day for waking up in time to put on makeup. Considering it's pigmented enough to be done in a swipe, I'm confident I can handle its one-step requirements.


    AND I think we can all agree that we're intrigued by all these (nearly 3,647) positive reviews about how *soft* this blush is! I want to feel cuddled by my makeup!

    Promising review: "These are the most long-lasting pigmented blushes I’ve ever tried! They’re very buildable which I love and they blend out like a dream!" —Megan

    Next, we pick something for a little ~extra perk~ to our look. We've got a bit of everything: shadows, eyeliner, brow gel...does anyone know a coder so I can hack my way to getting all of these?!

    Time for mascara and don't worry about choosing — they're all formulated with specific purposes in mind so it'll be clear which is about to be your soulmate. Further proof makeup is better than humans IMO.

Its 360° lash works to curl and separate every individual lash for a *fluttering* effect. And dare I say it's good for you? At least when it comes to its rice bran, olive esters, and provitamin B5 formula that soften and nourish those precious lashes. If you want look-at-me lashes, but also feel able to claim that they're natural this is your new best friend.

All in just the *blink of an eye*.

    * Lights, Camera, Flashes Statement Mascara: If you like your mascara blacker than black, you've found The One. This gives you luxuriously long, thick, practically false-looking lashes in no time at all thanks to its secret weapon: its brush. Its brush has two looks in one: one side is shorter and denser to plump every lashes, while the other is longer to lengthen and define. Clumps are NOT welcome with this mascara, but thick AF lashes are.

    * Lights, Camera, Splashes Waterproof Mascara: Score the ever-popular original Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara (above) in waterproof!

    I went for the Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 mascara — I mean, this just seems to have it all. A vegan formula, cult following, and beneficial ingredients like rice bran, olive esters, and provitamin B5 to not only boost your lashes but improve them? SIGN ME UP.
