All Beauty, All the Time—For Everyone.

Byrdie Readers Share Their Top 3 Beauty Products

Do you know your "top three"? The ultimate three products you cannot live without, whether you're stranded on a desert island or just going about your daily routine on a Wednesday. While we can instantly recall a few (or several) that are worthy enough to assume high ranks on our lists, we can't help but remain curious about which products top the lists of others.

So, we decided to enlist the help of a few of the beauty-savviest people we know—our readers. They gave us a glimpse into the holy-grail beauty products that line their #vanities and sounded off on which ones make up their top three.

Here are the products they cannot live without.
