Makeup

Maybelline The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette $11

Maybelline's nude-themed palette houses colors that you'll keep wearing throughout the year. The shades are casual and super wearable, with a few bold pops of drama for the days when you feel like seeing the world through rose-colored lids.

Lasting finish lipstick
Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick $7

An incredible balance of pigmented color, moisture, and all-day staying power makes this lipstick from Rimmel difficult to beat. It keeps your lips soft and hydrated for hours, but doesn't slip off when you take a drink of your cocktail.

Milani Rose Powder Blush Palette
Milani Rose Powder Blush Palette $11

This rosy blush trio includes three highly-pigmented powders that can be layered together or worn on their own to define and sculpt your cheekbones. 

L'Oréal Paris Lash Paradise
L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara $11
Shop

One of L'Oréal's best-selling mascaras, Lash Paradise is worth purchasing in bulk. According to our editorial director, Faith, "The dense brush coated my thin lashes and lifted them like little angels to the heavens. The problem I run into with most volumizing mascaras is that they'll weigh down my lashes and get rid of any curl, but this one seemed to magically multiply my lashes before my eyes and keep them curled and perky."

Nyx Color Correcting Concealer Pallete
Nyx Color Correcting Concealer Pallete $9
Shop

The ultimate concealer palette, Nyx's makeup-artist favorite offers six color-correcting shades to conceal any discoloration, trouble spots, or evidence of a late night. The formula is super lightweight, leaves a smooth finish, and is entirely customizable to your needs.

Skincare

Differin Adapalene Gel 0.1% Acne Treatment
Differin Gel $30
Shop

"If your acne is stubborn and it requires something more, that's when you can turn to the over-the-counter treatment adapalene, which most people are most familiar with when referred to by the brand name: Differin," says Byrdie writer Kaitlyn. "Take it from me—it works. I apply a bit of the milky gel on clean skin and go to bed. In the morning, any blemishes are visibly smaller and much, much easier to disguise with a dab of concealer."

Pixi Glow Glycolic Boost
Pixi Glow Glycolic Boost $10
Shop

Pixi's glycolic-infused sheet mask lends an instant brightening and hydrating effect to those who apply it. One package includes three masks, so you can make it a once-weeky routine. The glycolic acid resurfaces your skin cells, revealing, smoother, brighter, clearer skin in its wake.

Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Face Cream Moisturizer
Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Face Cream Moisturizer $32
Shop

Touted as one of the highest-rated drugstore anti-aging moisturizers, this hyaluronic acid–enriched formula helps hydrate, plump, and firm your skin. Then, the amino peptides and vitamin B3 come in to lift, tone, and diminish any fine lines or sagging.

Hydro boost water gel
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel $8

Every dermatologist I've spoken to has recommended this gel-cream hybrid from Neutrogena (seriously). For less than $10, you get a skin-quenching, hydrating shot of hyaluronic acid that leaves your skin plump and impossibly soft.

Another dermatologist favorite, Vanicream's super-gentle facial cleanser is noncomedogenic, soap-free, oil-free, and sulfate-free. Basically, it'll keep even the most irritated of skin protected and happy. It removes dirt, oil, and pollution from your skin without stripping any of the good, natural stuff from your face.

Haircare
