    "I am in love. Tarte’s Amazonian Clay is unlike any foundation I’ve tried. I often wake up with dark circles and slightly red cheeks — and sometimes a surprise pimple — but I typically find that foundations dry out my skin. OR, they’re too liquid-y and end up making my face feel oily all day. But not with this! It’s creamy, smooth, hydrating, and it adds a warmth to my face. Basically what I am saying is, this is worth EVERY penny!" — Kayla Suazo

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $51 (available in 40 shades).

    2. A pressed powder highlighter that'll give your cheekbones the prettiest glow. It has a velvety formula that'll glide onto your skin and have you looking like a shimmery mythical creature with just one swipe of product.

    Reviewers love that the pigmentation lasts all day and that you can really pack it on if you want a stunning glow. They also say it’s worth the somewhat steep price tag, since it takes forever to run out and can also double as an eyeshadow.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $50 (full size, available in 11 colours) or $29.50 (mini size, available in five colours).

    3. A Fenty Match Stix Matte Skinstick concealer that’ll hide your spots better than most other products you’ve tried. It’s super buildable, so you can apply more if your pimples are particularly vicious, and it’ll leave you with a soft matte finish that lasts all day.

    I usually wear a full face of makeup (primer, foundation, concealer, powder, etc.), but since I've started working from home I’ve really only been wearing this concealer. I use it almost every single day to cover the bags under my eyes and whatever hormonal acne is lurking on my skin. It honestly makes me feel way better on video calls and helps me feel a little more put together.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $23 (available in 22 shades).

    4. A powder blush that'll add a pop of colour to your cheeks. You can use your fingers to apply it, so if you can't be bothered to use a brush, this might be the ideal way to give yourself a rosy glow.

    Reviewers say it’s a game-changer if you don’t have a ton of time to put on a full face in the morning. People that prefer using a brush say you just tap it on the apples of your cheeks and that it barely needs blending.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $38 (available in four shades).

    5. A matte bronzer made with cocoa powder that'll give your skin a yummy sun-kissed glow. It'll last for about eight hours, and best of all, it actually smells like a bar of chocolate.

    Reviewers say it gives them a natural hit of colour without any of the orangey undertones that some bronzers have. Some people who have acne say that this doesn't break them out like other products and that it mattifies the oily parts of their face.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $42 (available in three shades).

    6. A mascara called Better Than Sex that'll give you some serious bedroom eyes. The wand has an hourglass shape that'll easily transfer the product to your lashes and give them a voluminous and defined look.

    Reviewers love that it gives you full lashes with just one swipe and that you can get some serious drama with a few extra swipes. It's also easy to remove, so you won't have to tug at your delicate eye area when you're washing your face.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $33 (full size) or $18 (mini size).

    7. A waterproof brow pencil that'll help you fill in the sparse patches of your brows, so your brow game is always on point. One side has a tip to draw tiny hairs and the other end has a spoolie to smooth everything out.

    Jennifer Tonti / BuzzFeed

    "It has a hard, sharp edge that really allows me to define my brows and create the best shape for my face. It also comes with a spoolie on one end to help tame those unruly hairs and clean up any mistakes I am bound to make. I highly recommend this product for anyone new to the brow game, or if you're a total goof like me!" — Jennifer Tonti

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $32 (full size, available in 12 colours) or $19 (mini size, available in three colours).

    8. A waterproof eyeliner with a smooth formula that's made with vitamin E, jojoba oil, and cottonseed oil. It'll give you dramatic coverage that'll last you for 24 hours without flaking or smudging.

    If you're scared of fussy liquid eyeliners, this might be the product for you. Reviewers say the creamy formula glides onto their lids and waterline like a dream and that it doesn't irritate their eyes while tightlining. One reviewer uses it on their beauty mark to really make it pop and others love that it rarely needs sharpening.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $29.50 (available in 27 colours).

    9. The cult-fave Urban Decay Naked3 palette with matte, pearl, and metallic options that'll help you create a multi-dimensional look. It ranges from light neutrals to shimmery dark colours that you can use to create a range of looks, like a barely-there pop of colour or a dramatic smokey eye.

    Reviewers say that the variety of colours and finishes make it a go-to product for everyday use. They also love the makeup brush that comes with the palette and say that it's great for seasoned makeup pros and newbies alike since the formula is so pigmented and blendable.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $68.

    10. A leave-in conditioning curl cream that'll give you the bounciest ringlets. It also helps to prevent frizzies and fly-aways, so your curls will be at the top of their game

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    "I scrunch a few pumps into my wet hair and diffuse right away (I use this beat-up Conair hairdryer with the diffuser attachment that comes with it). First day or two, it's nice and bouncy with tighter curls — all due to the magic combo of the cream and the diffuser, which help curls dry IN PLACE. But what I love about this curl cream is that it helps my hair look as fresh as possible until the next shampoo...four or five days later. I'm addicted. Good luck prying it from my hands." —Maitland Quitmeyer

    11. A lip mask that'll give you a soft and oh-so-kissable pout overnight. It's made with a delicious blend of berries and vitamin C that'll hydrate your lips and smell wonderful while doing so.

    Reviewers say it's fantastic for getting rid of flakey lips in the winter. They love that it thoroughly absorbs overnight and that the moisturizing effect lasts all day.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $26 (available in six scents).

    12. A dry shampoo that'll soak up the oil and grease on your scalp, so no one will be the wiser that you haven't washed your hair in three days. It has a jasmine, sandalwood, and vanilla scent that'll hide any funky smells your hair might've picked up throughout your day.

    Reviewers love that it doesn't leave any white residue behind and that it gives you some serious volume. They also say it's great for after a workout to soak up sweat.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $30.

    13. A 5-in-1 hair treatment that'll fortify your locks and protect them from heat products and pollution. It'll also give you some serious volume, so you can skip going to the hairdresser to get a blowout.

    Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

    "I've received lots of compliments on my hair since switching to this product, from random people asking if I paid for a blowout (NOPE!) to a friend's roommate exclaiming, 'Your hair is editorial straight!' (Thanks!) So yeah, it’s legit.

    It’s also extremely lightweight because it’s made without parabens or phthalates, which I’m told weigh down your hair! And it’s safe to use on straight, wavy, or curly hair. In short, if Living Proof stops making this stuff, I’m buying a damn case of it." —Elizabeth Lilly

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $38 (full size) or $21 (mini size).

    14. A pack of blotting papers that'll soak up excess oil on your face, if you're a greasy human being (I certainly am!). It has jojoba leaf and willowherb that'll help calm your skin and soothe red patches.

    Reviewers say these are a must for throwing in your bag on warmer days. They won't tear or ruin your makeup, and people also say you can see a noticeable reduction in the shine on your face in seconds.

    Get a pack of 100 sheets from Sephora Canada for $14.

    15. A pore treatment strip that helped to clear out all of the oil and sebum that had been lurking in my nose. My nose has always been my problem spot, but thanks to these strips, I no longer cringe at my blackheads and oiliness.

    Sarah Rohoman/BuzzFeed

    It needs to stay on for four to six hours (longer than other pore strips, I know), but since I'm working from home that isn't a problem. After four hours, I peeled the strip off and was SHOOK at the amount of oil and sebum that it pulled from the pores on my nose. Like, truly amazed at what I saw on the strip in front of me. If you have oily skin, I definitely recommend trying this product out!

    Get eight pore strips from Sephora Canada for $25.

    16. A setting spray that'll help keep your makeup from budging throughout the day. It's made with rosemary, mint, and rose oil that'll make feel like you're having a little spa moment every time you spritz it.

    Reviewers say it also helps to tone and tighten their skin and that it even helps with rosacea. They love how calming and cooling it is on their face as well as the luxurious smell.

    Get it from Sephora or $59 (full size) or $22 (mini size).

    17. An acne treatment gel that'll help get rid of your pimples once and for all. Just dab a little bit onto a spot and prepare to be amazed at how quickly it heals.

    Reviewers with hormonal acne say that it really helps to purge the gunk out of their face. People who are now struggling with acne from wearing face masks say that it stops stubborn pimples in their tracks and that a few drops go a long way.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $25.

    18. A clarifying face oil with salicylic acid that'll help treat your spots and prevent them from coming back. It also has milk thistle and cucumber seed to nourish your skin, without leaving behind a sticky feeling.

    JenniferTonti / Via Instagram: @, JenniferTonti / Via Instagram: @jennifertonti

    "This is absolutely a ride-or-die for me. Yes, it's pricey, but trust me — it's worth the investment. It lasts a very long time as you really only need one to two drops a day when you're having a breakout. For the best results, I use this after I cleanse my face and before I moisturize. Every time I've used this oil I've actually seen a visible clarifying effect on my skin!" — Jennifer Tonti

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $105.

    19. A peel-off face mask that's infused with minerals and activated charcoal. It'll help with the appearance of large pores, dull skin, and oiliness if that’s something that bothers you (which it totally might not, tbh!).

    Reviewers say that this really grabs all the gunk out of their skin, like blackheads and excess sebum. They also say that it's not painful to peel off and doesn't strip your skin of moisture like some other masks do.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $45.

    20. And lastly, a gentle face cleanser that'll help to get rid of toxins in your skin. It's made with glacial water from Iceland that's packed with minerals to help soothe your skin if it's been looking a little angry.

    JenniferTonti / Via Instagram: @jennifertonti

    "I use this foaming cleanser in the morning because its cooling effect really wakes up my skin. It has white willow bark, which is a natural form of salicylic acid that helps prevent skin congestion and acne. The oat and cylindrica seed oils also do a fantastic job of removing all the excess oils my face has so generously produced overnight, without making my skin feel dried out." — Jennifer Tonti
