    3. Benefit Gimme Brow adds volume and tint to brows that require no other filling in. Brush this on your brows and it'll add additional fibers and keep them in place ~effortlessly~.

    One reviewer says this helps minimize fine lines around their eyes, plus it moisturizes their skin without feeling too oily.

    Price: $37

    5. Bobbi Brown Highlighter supplies high shine that'll give you the most radiant of glows. Pop this on the high parts of the cheekbone, on your brown bone, cupid's bow, and on the inner corner of your eyes for some sparkle.


    A reviewer was super impressed by this highlighter's pigmentation, saying it gave a natural, sun-kissed glow, and that there was very little fallout from the brush.

    Price: $30+ (available in two sizes and five colours)

    6. Too Faced The Natural Nudes eyeshadow palette offers 16 stunning neutral shades for creating your dream eye look. A balance of matte and shimmer shades are formulated with coconut water to maintain skin moisture levels (yes — even on your eyelids).

    Too Faced Born This Way The Natural Nudes palette

    A reviewer loved how easily the palette blends, and that the different shades complement each other perfectly, so they don't have to overthink which ones to use.

    Price: $57

    7. Tower 28 Bronzino Illuminating Bronzer applies like a creamy dream to contour and warm up the parts of the face where you want to look bronzey. Of all the cream bronzers I've tried, this takes the cake.


    In my mid-twenties, I started experimenting more with cream products since I felt like powder products were latching on to parts of my skin where I tended to have dry patches. I was intimidated at first by the slight shimmer sheen in this product but after application I couldn't have been more wrong. This product is my holy grail of cream contours. It looks natural and I mean that. I apply this after my foundation and under my setting powder and then add a bit of powder bronzer on top of it and my skin has never looked smoother, healthier, and more airbrushed in my whole life.

    Price: $26 (available in two shades)

    8. Ilia mascara not only makes your lashes look suuuuper long, but it also conditions your lashes to feel incredibly soft.

    Brittany Barber/BuzzFeed

    "This mascara feels like it actually conditions my lashes when I have it on, and never feels crispy or clunky (like some do). Like, have you ever put on mascara and thought, frig, this is why my eyelashes are stunted? Yeah, that does NOT happen with this one, whatsoever. The fact that it's made with beeswax and shea butter makes me feel like I'm giving my lashes a little TLC, even though I'm wearing makeup. It also comes off super easily at night, which is great when I'm feeling lazy and don't want to deal with a full-on scrub down. And the results? The length it gives is no joke! I'm obsessed." —Brittany Barber

    Price: $18+ (available in two sizes)

    9. A tube of Caudalie hand cream, which will bring moisture and softness back to your hands after all the hand washing you've been doing (right?).

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "I've been washing my hands a lot recently (AS WE ALL SHOULD BE) and it was starting to take a toll on my skin. My hands were so dry and the skin felt really tight immediately after washing. So I started using some Caudalie hand cream, and it's become the second step in my hand-washing routine. The texture is light and it absorbs really quickly, without leaving behind a sticky or greasy feeling. And it has a warm citrus scent that I find very subtle and soothing. My hands look and feel moisturized and soft, and I'll definitely be restocking once I finish the tube." —Kaysey Davis

    Price: $22.

    10. Glow Recipe Watermelon Lip Balm delivers a combination of essential vitamins, coconut, and flower extracts like hibiscus and wild pansy for a hydrating handbag must-have. (Honestly, Harry Styles probs loves this lip balm too...*winks*)

    Glow Recipe Watermelon glow lip balm

    One reviewer loves this lip balm so much, they've bought it four times already — they say its colour and smell are delicious, and that it makes their lips incredibly soft.

    Price: $26.10

    11. An essential oil roll-on that's basically a PMS-fighting, fresh-smelling, migraine-busting, cramp-eliminating miracle. It's an awesome all-natural remedy for those days when everything sucks, and you just need a little pick-me-up.

    Victoria Kuglin/BuzzFeed

    "Is it possible to love an inanimate object? If so, I am definitely in love with this lil' rollerball. It sounds cliché, but when I first heard of it, I was kind of like, 'Sure, Jan.' But honestly — THIS. WORKS.

    I know it's ~technically~ supposed to be targeted at PMS symptoms, but in truth, it can be anything you want it to be. I've used it to ease cramps, relieve muscle tension from sleeping on my neck wrong (because apparently that's my life now), and as a drug-free solution to headaches. The blend of relaxing clary sage, zippy peppermint, floral geranium, and zesty lemon oil is a genius combination that not only feels great, but smells fantastic, too. I love that it comes in a glass bottle, which preserves the integrity of the high-quality essential oils a LOT better than plastic. If you're looking for a new ally in the fight against fatigue, irritation, mood swings, cramping, and nausea, this is it." —Victoria Kuglin

    Price: $21

    12. A bottle of Verb Ghost Oil that's infused with bamboo extract, moringa seed oil, and argan oil to strengthen your locks and minimize frizz. It's thicker than most hair serums, and delivers some serious hydrating results with just a few pumps.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    "When I bleached my hair, it was completely busted. It broke every time I brushed it and basically looked like one of those tumbleweeds you see in an old western movie every time I blowdried it — until I found this. It's thicker than most oils (a bit lighter than the consistency of gel) and combs through hair like a dream. It packs in moisture like nobody's business and also smells freaking amazing." —Alice Prendergast

    Price: $20

    13. Farmacy Deep Sweep Toner exfoliates dead skin and leftover makeup that may have not fully come off during your cleansing sesh. Take a cotton pad and some of this toner to tighten your pores and reveal rejuvenated-looking skin.

    Farmacy Toner

    Soon after they began using this, a reviewer saw a significant reduction in acne and the appearance of their pores; plus, it didn't dry out or irritate their skin.

    Price: $37

    14. A Tower 28 lip jelly, if you're tired of the matte lip trend and prefer the look of a plumper, juicier pout. The formula is oil based, meaning you won't have to deal with the dreaded stickiness of a traditional gloss.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    "Until recently, I was not a gloss gal. In fact, I was not a lip product gal at all (besides balm). But let me tell you, things have changed! I am obsessed with these lip jellies. They keep my cracked, chapped lips soothed and the colours are great. I am not lying when I say I am going to purchase every single one because they are so dang pretty." —Alice Prendergast

    Price: $18 (available in ten colours)

    15. Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Primer helps prep your skin whether you decide to put makeup on or not. It has ingredients like blue agave extract and aloe water to hydrate skin, and will also help makeup stay on longer throughout the day.

    17. Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray absorbs excess oil and ensures your makeup stays put the entire day. Temperature control technology assists if it gets too hot so your makeup is less likely to slide down your face.

    Model uses Urban Decay All-Night Setting Spray

    One reviewer said this made her makeup stay put during a 12-hour shift as a restaurant manager in the Florida heat.

    Price: $20+ (available in three sizes)

    18. Ouai Leave In Conditioner helps replenish damaged hair after you hop out of the shower to make brushing way less knotty. It also smells bomb.

    Ouai Leave in conditioner spray

    A reviewer said that the spray makes their hair feel soft and healthy after they've finished heat styling — and it even makes their hair look so good after a blow-dry that they don't need to curl or straighten!

    Price: $16+ (available in two sizes)

    19. Rare Beauty Weightless Foundation provides medium coverage to skin that's as light as a feather. This moisturizing foundation has a botanical blend of ingredients like lotus, gardenia, and water lily that'll also help calm skin while simultaneously supplying the perfect base for your makeup look.


    A reviewer loves that the foundation doesn't look cakey, and that it straddles the line between matte and dewy perfectly — plus, they love that there are olive tones for both light and dark skin.

    Price: $38 (available in 48 shades)

    20. Pat McGrath Lust Lip Gloss sparkles and shines on lips for a truly glistening pout. For days you want a more hydrating lippie option other than matte liquid lipstick, this shimmering gloss will be your go-to.

    Youth To The People Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream

    One reviewer said this is perfect for combination skin, because it absorbs quickly, doesn't feel greasy, but still leaves their face feeling hydrated — plus, it doesn't make them break out.

    Price: $63

    22. Makeup By Mario Pigment Pro Eyeliner smokes out the lower lashline with a simple swipe of this super opaque liner and a quick buff from the attached brush. If you prefer more volume on the upper lashline (but aren't a fan of winged liner) you can smudge some of this right on the lashes at the base for a fuller look.

    Pro eyeliner in matte black

    A reviewer praised this eyeliner for how smooth and pigmented it is, and loved that it didn't affect their sensitive eyes.

    Price: $29 (available in five shades)

    Price: $12.50
