    1. A tube of Fenty Gloss Bomb Lip Luminizer to leave your pout looking fuller, smoother, and with a ~delicious~ shine. Plus, it's formulated with shea butter to condition your lips while you work 👏🏽 your 👏🏽 look. 👏🏽

    Six Fenty Gloss Bomb swatches on the arms of people with light, medium, tan, and deep skin tones
    Sephora

    It has over 8,000 five-star reviews!

    I have this lip gloss in the shade "Fenty Glow" and it's my favorite everyday lippie! It's light and subtle enough to make me feel like I'm barely wearing anything, but it has just enough shine and pigment to bring any natural makeup look together. Plus, it smells delicious!

    Promising review: "Love this gloss so much. It has a big applicator and the packaging is so cute. I really love the smell of this and I don’t have to put a lot on when I use it. This shade leaves a pink sheen and isn’t sticky. Honestly, it’s a really good gloss." —Brookevball

    Price: $19 (available in six shades)

    2. This Anastasia Brow Wiz pencil so you can create a natural-looking eyebrow look without worry about smudging or touching up throughout the day.

    Sephora, Anastasia Beverly Hills

    It has over 10,000 five-star reviews!

    Promising review: "This is one of my favorite brow products ever. It is so natural looking and very blendable but not too blendable to the point where it smears on your face. I like my brow products to be a little more solid and not as creamy because I don't want the product to move around when I comb through it I get the best results when I line the under part of my brow first and blend up using the brush on the other side — it looks SUPER NATURAL. Overall, I am in love with this product and have been using it for years. It is a must-have." —megancox

    Price: $23 (available in 10 shades)

    3. A bottle of Armani Luminous Silk Foundation that'll leave you with a look that's almost as ~luxurious~ as the product sounds. The buildable coverage and smooth finish might make it look like you have a second skin.

    Sephora

    It has over 2,000 five-star reviews!

    Promising review: "I have repurchased this product too many times to count. It is exactly as described. It’s like silk on the skin. It feels great and not cakey at all! It has light to medium coverage and is buildable. They’ve recently expanded their color range to include additional shades. I’ve tried other foundations — some cheaper — but I ALWAYS come back to this. It never disappoints." —karajay

    Price: $64 (available in 40 shades and in a mini version with 11 shades)

    4. This bottle of Urban Decay All-Nighter Makeup Setting Spray because it'll keep makeup looking fresh as heck for up to 16 wonderful hours. Plus, the mist feels practically weightless on your skin.

    It has over 7,000 five-star reviews!

    Promising review: "This is, and will always be, my favorite setting spray. I use it all the time and on all of my clients for special occasions. The bottle lasts me a while and it keeps my makeup on all day. I’ve been using it for years and probably have six bottles (I stay stocked with multiple at a time). I highly recommend it." —malloryweast

    Price: $33+ (available in three sizes and in the Lunar New Year edition)

    5. A set of 10 cruelty-free makeup brushes to help you apply your products beautifully — and, the faux leather roll-up case gives you a nice, convenient place to store your brushes (especially if you're like me and lose 'em sometimes. Oops).

    Four fluffy brushes, five smaller brushes, and one fanned brush tucked into individual pockets in the carrying case
    Sephora

    It has over 300 5-star reviews and includes a powder brush, a complexion brush, an angled blush brush, a highlight and contour brush, fan brush, an eyeshadow brush, a smudge brush, a blending crease brush, a concealer brush, an angled liner and spoolie brush, and a faux leather brush roll.

    Promising review: "The price is great for the quality and amount of brushes you get here! The brushes are soft and apply product the way you’d desire. They don’t shed, even after several washes. The powder brush is my absolute favorite, but I definitely grab for them all before my other brushes." —sarohar

    Price: $70

    6. This tube of Grande Cosmetics Lash Enhancing Serum because it contains vitamins and amino acids to help promote the length and health of natural lashes.

    Sephora

    It has over 1,500 five-star reviews!

    Promising review: "I have been using this lash serum since January 2020. I had eyelash extensions and my lashes were short and not full. I noticed a slight difference in about a month. And now (May), they are long, full, and have a nice curl to them! I love this stuff. It's well worth the money. It's also very easy to apply. I have friends who pay over $100 for a different lash serum and this one works well and is on the cheaper side." —jeceju

    Price: $65 (also available as a mini version)

    7. This jar of Farmacy Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm to help the day's makeup, dirt, and grime literally ~melt~ off your face without any deep scrubbing (tysm, sunflower and ginger root oils). Even that gunky sunscreen residue is no match for this product's turmeric and Moringa extract.

    Four jars of the cleansing balm arranged around each other. Two opened jars show the soft green color balm inside the jar
    Sephora

    It has over 2,000 5-star reviews!

    Promising review: "This product is truly a pleasure to use! I enjoy it as the first step in my evening double cleanse, and it really does an amazing job just melting away any makeup or sunscreen. It's gentle enough to use around the eye area, and it feels so nice to massage into my face. It cleans off easily in water, making it a great first step in the cleansing process. Also, this product smells GREAT — so fresh and clean. I normally don't prefer fragrance in my skin care products, but since this is a wash-off product, it's not a deal-breaker. I highly recommend it, and I will be re-purchasing!" —TheWittyKnit

    Price: $34 (also available as a mini version)

    8. An Urban Decay Naked Cherry Eyeshadow Palette because it includes a mix of pigmented mattes, metallics, and shimmers to help you create a variety of looks for sooooo many occasions — you might not want any other palette, TBH.

    An image of an eyeshadow palette with 12 shades, including light neutrals, subtle reds and pinks, and reddish-brown tones. The palette also includes a double-sided eyeshadow brush
    instagram.com

    It has over 300 5-star reviews!

    Promising review: "This is my favorite out of the NAKED palettes. I received it for my birthday from my sister and it's perfect. I'm not looking for harsh and super-bright pinks, so this was a winner. All the shades blended together well, and nothing looked obnoxious once applied. I use the Urban Decay eyeshadow primer in the anti-aging original formula and it works like a charm with these colors. I love that this palette has pretty, soft-focus shades that are perfect for any season, and it's better than boring brown and grey shades!" —AshUnabashed

    Price: $24.50 (originally $49)

    9. A Drunk Elephant Antioxidant Face Oil formulated with Marula seed oil to give your skin the moisture boost it's been craving after weeks of abandoning your skincare routine altogether.

    Sephora

    It has over 1,000 5-star reviews!

    Promising review: "This oil is sooooo good. I use it at night over my serum and moisturizer. It’s super lightweight and just locks in the moisture! I wake up with a glow and I usually never wake up with a moisturized glow despite my use of an ultra hydrating moisturizer!! I like to gently pat this product in and only use a small amount. It stays on all night and only a slight residue is left in the morning. It does not feel sticky or thick at all, which is great. I have combo, acne-prone skin that is on the sensitive side and this does not make me break out!" —kar100

    Price: $72 (also available in a mini version)

    10. This jar of Olehenriksen Banana Bright Eye Crème to help you achieve a brighter-looking eye area after regular use thanks to the added Vitamin C. With all the hydration it'll give you, you might be so surprised by how lightweight it is.

    It has over 1,600 5-star reviews!

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this eye creme. I've been using it for probably about four to five months now and it has helped with the brightness and fine lines. I only use it in the morning before makeup. It hydrates my eyes and wakes them up. It doesn't cake up under my concealer either. It's a great product and lasts a long time! I've been using the same jar for months and I'm finally about to run out. It doesn't cause any irritation to me either, which is unusual because many eye creams cause me irritation." —rosie22

    Price: $39

    11. These Peace Out Acne Healing Dots for when you have a pimple with a whitehead you're just itching to pop. Just place a dot over the affected spot, get some beauty sleep, and peel it off for a satisfying look at the gunk it sucked out of your skin.

    Sephora

    It has over 1,400 five-star reviews!

    Promising review: "I don't usually get pimples but these things are a life-saver when I get one. I know you're not supposed to squeeze, but I find it best to kind of open the zit before putting a healing dot on. Then, I sleep with it and in the morning, it's actually fun and so satisfying to see all the junk it pulled out while I slept — the pimple is like flat when I take it off. I've bought these multiple times and I'll keep buying them." —Andielianne

    Price: $19 for a pack of 20 (also available as a pack of 40)

    12. This tube of Fresh Soy Makeup Removing Face Wash to help ward off dry, dull skin and uneven texture. The soy proteins, cucumber extract, and rosewater, which help to calm, soothe, and restore suppleness, are kind of like a pick-me-up for your skin.

    It has over 5,000 five-star reviews!

    Promising review: "I have been using this product for several years and I will not use anything else. I have very sensitive skin and this face wash is super gentle but also takes off ALL of my makeup always." —Theleenewtonluv

    Price: $38+ (available in three sizes)

    13. Or a bottle of Youth To The People Superfood Cleanser that might feel like a glass of green juice for your face — especially since it's formulated with kale for glowing skin, spinach for conditioning skin, and green tea for clearing skin with its anti-inflammatory properties.

    Three bottles filled with the light green cleanser — the bottles have a pump top

    It has over 1,500 five-star reviews!

    Promising review: "This is one of my all-time favorite cleansers! It smells amazing and leaves my skin bright and totally clean without stripping it. I don’t have that tight skin feeling after I use it, which I love!" —tess592

    Price: $36 (also available in a mini version)

    14. A can of Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo that's sure to save the day when you reallyyyyy aren't ready to give your hair another wash even though your oily roots are trying to coax you otherwise.

    Small, medium, and large sized spray cans
    instagram.com

    It has over 2,100 five-star reviews!

    Promising review: "So far amazing!! I have hair that gets oily after two days but I try to extend time between washes bc my hair is thin. This smells amazing and I instantly saw change in my hair. No more ponytails to hide my greasy hair!" —Catcam2323

    Price: $14+ (available in three sizes)

    15. This bottle of Moroccanoil treatment you can apply to damp hair to boost its shine and tame some unruly flyaways. Plus, the argan oil and flax seed extract work to strengthen your strands.

    A bottle with an un-screwable top
    Sephora

    It has over 800 five-star reviews!

    Promising review: "I don't normally write reviews, but I have to say this product is truly amazing! My hair is really dry and have a lot of split ends because I always blow-dry it with the hottest setting on my blow-dryer. But from using this product, my hair got so much softer! I only used it three times and the change is already visible." —Junnaz

    Price: $15

    16. A Beautyblender Pro makeup sponge to help you achieve a smooth finish as you apply makeup. Plus, reviewers say it's long-lasting and doesn't look super gross and caked up even after you've washed product out of it over and over again.

    It has over 1,500 five-star reviews!

    Promising review: "This was my first time trying a Beauty Blender and all I can say is, IT WORKS. It blends my foundation and concealer perfectly. It works better than any off-brand dupes of this product. It’s worth buying the real deal. I'm super impressed with this product!" —haydenpointer

    Price: $20

    17. And this Sephora Collection Daily Brush Cleaner that'll help give your makeup brushes the cleaning of their lives. It's fast-drying so you can clean your brushes in a pinch, and it doesn't irritate sensitive skin.

    Sephora

    It has over 400 five-star reviews!

    Promising review: "I actually LOVE the smell of this! If they made a room spray in this, I would totally buy it!! And, it cleans make up brushes really well, too! It’s so easy and quick to spray, and you can brush it on a paper towel and watch all the makeup come off. Great price, too!" —Jinnyc

    Price: $15 (also available as a mini version)

    18. A Kat Von D Vegan Beauty Tattoo Liner pen with a super precise tip so you can take your pick between a dramatic, swooping cat-eye and a subtle trail of pigment.

    Sephora

    I've used this eyeliner myself and the raving reviews are true — the tip really does make it easy for you to obtain a precise eye look! I've worn this eyeliner from 7:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. and it would STILL look totally un-smudged and as perfect as it looked when I first applied it. BTW, it has over 11,000 5-star reviews!

    Promising review: "I couldn’t ask for anything more in this eyeliner. I love how black it is and the tip is so precise! You get perfect control of the wing you would like to create. It makes the cat eye look so effortless. I especially recommend it for beginners." —coronaa4

    Price: $21 (available in two colors)

    19. This tube of Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara that'll leave your lashes with a fanned-out flair you won't be able to stop looking at. In two coats, it adds volume, length, and curl for a dramatic eye look.

    Side-by-side close-ups of a person's eye. The eye on the left has short, thin lashes and the eye on the right, which has the mascara on, has lashes that look longer, darker and a little thicker
    Sephora

    It has over 7,000 5-star reviews!

    Promising review: "This is my favorite mascara! I’ve been using it for years. I just love how versatile and buildable it is so it’s easy for you to create an understated look, a bold look, or anything in between!" —AlexisNicoles

    Price: $25 (also available as a mini version)

    20. A tube of Fenty Stunna Lip Paint to add a light-weight, long-wearing pop of color to your pout. It stays put and stays matte so you don't have to worry about reapplying after you've had your cup of coffee.

    Eight lipstick swatches in colors including red, pinks, and even black and violet across arms with light, medium, tan, and deep skin tones
    Sephora

    It has over 2,800 five-star reviews!

    Promising review: "This formula (across all its colors) is unmatched by my other long-lasting lip colors. I rarely, if ever, have to reapply it — even after drinking. It’s a Fenty staple and general makeup staple for me. It's well worth the price for the quality. I own this in a few colors and can’t wait to buy more." —mtaryn

    Price: $25 (available in eight shades)

    21. Or a tube of Milk Makeup Lip + Cheek Tint to deliver versatile and buildable color to your lips and face so you can have the most pinchable cheeks and kissable colors you can imagine.

    Five small tubes of the tint lined up next to each other with swatches above them. The shades include a light plum, deep cranberry, a pink peach, a brownish mauve, and a brighter pink color
    Sephora

    It has over 400 five-star reviews!

    Promising review: "This blush is top-charts amazing. It's not even sticky or greasy on the skin. It's so easy to apply and use!! You can use it however you want, too, which is awesome." —ml0429

    Price: $28 (also available in a mini size, and in five shades for the standard size and six for the mini)

    22. This tube of IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream because it'll give you the coverage of a concealer with the feel of a moisturizer all in just one product. It's even formulated with hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture.

    A hand holding a tube of the CC cream
    Sephora

    I usually wear full-coverage foundation, but if I need to run an errand on the weekend, I might want some coverage but not heavy, full-face coverage. That's where this CC cream comes in. Though it says full coverage, I'd say it's on the lighter side and is more buildable. One quick layer applied with my fingers is enough to leave me feeling glowing! When you remove the cap on the tube, the top is actually a pump so you can easily dispense the product. And, to top it all off, it's formulated with SPF 50 — no wonder it has over 1,900 5-star reviews!

    Promising review: "I don't like wearing a lot of makeup, so this is the perfect amount of coverage for my daily routine. It leaves a natural finish so that my skin actually looks like my skin but better. It sounds cliche but this is the only product I've found that truly delivers on that promise. A minor downside is that my skin is a little on the oily side, so it does get a bit greasy throughout the day, but it's perfect during the winter. The formula is flexible so that you can apply it with a brush or your fingers." —kcdiaz

    Price: $39.50 (available in 12 shades)

    23. A jar of Amika Soulfood Hair Mask to nourish and help restore dry, damaged hair, leaving it touchably smoother.

    A shot of the opened product jar held in one hand and a dollop of the thick cream in the other hand
    Sephora

    It has over 700 5-star reviews!

    Promising review: "I thought I'd treat myself and so glad I did. I left this mask in for about an hour with a shower cap and the results were amazing. I have very thick, kinky, curly and unruly hair. While this did not eliminate frizz, my hair was substantially smoother and soft after blow drying and straightening it. I love the light, perfume-y smell it left as well." —ceejay28

    Price: $28 (also available in a mini version)

    24. And this bottle of Ouai Wave Spray for when you want to switch up your 'do and give yourself a just-came-from-the-ocean hair look. A few spritzes of this rice protein formula is all you need for beachy waves.

    A spray bottle of the product styled on a surface
    Sephora

    It has over 600 5-star reviews!

    Promising review: "This made my hair look like I just came from the beach. I naturally have long, thick and wavy hair, which is cut into layers which helps but this honestly just takes it to another level. My husband always notices a difference in my hair if I use it so that says something. I use it after I wash my hair and it lasts until the next time I wash it (usually twice a week). I personally don't notice the fragrance lingering after the spray and I'm sensitive to certain perfumes." —shteino

    Price: $26 (also available as a mini version)
