    If you're anything like us, YouTube videos take up about 90% of your free time. So we asked some of the coolest beauty influencers on the Internet — who just happen to be badass Asian-American women — what their favorite ride-or-die product is:

    1. Weylie Hoang's favorite falsies are her namesake, of course — Weylie X e.l.f. Luxe Lash Kit 2.0 provides just the right amount of volume to enhance your natural lashes and feels super feathery, so you can wear them all day long with zero discomfort.

    2. Deepica Mutyala loves Fenty Gloss Bomb for a plethora of reasons: its subtlety works for both day and night, it complements her skin tone beautifully, and it even smells/tastes amazing!

    3. Jen Chae lifts and holds her expertly curled lashes (à la normal curler *and* heated curler) with Urban Decay Cannonball Ultra Waterproof Mascara — it's perfect for bringing lashes out from their monolid hiding places, and it's been her holy grail for years!

    4. Sharifa Easmin-Kabir relies on Ardell Brow Kit to sculpt full and scrumptious brows that simply enhance her natural brows (because no one's got time for overly harsh and overdrawn formulas, amirite?).

    5. Karen Yeung stands behind the ~skin first~ philosophy and uses Tatcha Rice Enzyme Powder to gently buff away dead skin for a baby-soft canvas that will make her makeup look even more fresh, dewy, and overall BOMB.

    6. Puneet B. makes sure she always has a tube of Kat Von D's Lolita Liquid Lipstick (or multiple) on hand because it's incredibly flattering on medium skin tones and it's equally gorgeous for casual errands or fancy affairs — so basically the definition of ~my lips but better~!

    7. Stephanie Villa outfits her lips with Fenty Stunna Lip Paint whenever she wants to feel *extra* powerful and bold because a matte cool red never, ever fails ya.

    8. Charlotte Cho stans Acwell Licorice pH Balancing Toner for its intensely purifying formula (aka the best line of defense against Seoul's infamous yellow dust) while still being gentle on the skin (hello, 5.5 pH!) and its star ingredient, licorice (which has crazy brightening properties) — when your job is testing and curating K-beauty products, finding a HG is 👏 a 👏 big 👏 deal 👏.

    9. Erica Choi always reaches for Dior Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer Powder (in 001 Nude Glow) for densely-packed, light-reflecting radiance that, on top of having a thorough skincare routine, gives you that coveted ~glow from within~ every day.

    Glow upppp, beauties! ✨🌟💖
