6 Makeup Product Pairings We Think Were (Secretly) Made for Each Other

We'll admit that some of our best makeup-related epiphanies have been accidental discoveries. Though we wish we could say we're one part editor, one part alchemic genius, it's our job to test and compare virtually every product that comes across our desk.

Thus, more often than not, we can be found deskside at 7 p.m. swiping ourselves with odd concoctions of glosses, luminizers, balms, and the like. Typically, the results verge more mad scientist than alluring, lit-from-within fairy, but every so often we stumble upon a majestic makeup combination: two unrelated gems that share the same scintillating chemistry as Kate and Leo (not official, but we're still passionately optimistic.)

Yes, we realize our favorite brands carry complementary lines of product meant to be mixed and matched, but to be completely honest, our top-secret pairings yield rather incomparable results (if we do say so ourselves). Curious to see which beauty products we think were separated at birth? Keep reading for the unrelated pairings we never plan to quit.
