bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream

“For my everyday makeup look, I opt for the simplest products that do the most amount of work, and this Complexion Rescue by bareMinerals has been my go-to tinted moisturizer for years. I will apply it before putting on my foundation as a primer of sorts, and it pairs really nicely with their other foundation products so it makes your face look radiant—even before adding your contouring and highlighting magic. For lighter makeup days, I’ll use this tinted moisturizer all by itself for an incredibly lightweight coverage that gives me that no-makeup look with the even skintone I want. Oh, and it has a broad spectrum SPF 30 making it the perfect on-the-go makeup product for a day at the beach or if you’re heading out for a run.” —Alexis Puebla, Editor

To buy: bareMinerals Complexion Rescue, Sephora, $30

“An oldie, but a goodie. I like a very natural makeup look, and this mascara does the trick. The flexible brush makes it easy to fully coat every single lash without making them feel stiff or clumpy!” —Hannah Marsh, Editor

“I only recently purchased this lash curler but I’m already in love. I’m that girl that was blessed with extra-long lashes that don’t like to curl whatsoever. But this curler gives my stick-straight lashes a serious va-va-voom curl—I’m obsessed. Plus, it’s actually a gorgeous rose gold curler that I love showing off.” —Lindsay Goedert, E-Commerce Coordinating Editor

To buy: LashCraft Curler, Sephora, $15

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Seoul

“I’m flat-out obsessed with Nyx’s Soft Matte Lip Creams—I think I have them in two dozen colors, and at about $10 a pop, they’re so affordable. They never dry out my pout, have such vibrant pigmentation, go on super easy with the wand, and are so fun to blend (so I have unlimited colors!). Seoul is my No. 1 favorite color, hands down. The violet hue is so fun for day and night, and if you mix in a little of Vancouver, you get a vampy look for those all-out evenings.”—Caitlin White, Senior Editor

To buy: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream, Target, $7

Lucas’ Papaw Ointment

“This miracle ointment is an all-in-one lifesaver for dry lips to dull skin and everything in between. I use Lucas’ Papaw Ointment predominantly as my go-to lip balm, but it’s also great to apply to my skin whenever I have blemishes, dry patches, or just want to add a little glow. I’m a minimalist when it comes to my everyday makeup look, and right now I’m really into subtle eyes with a dewy look, and this papaw ointment is my favorite trick for creating that misty looking eye that is sultry but sweet. This ointment is originally made and distributed in Australia but because of the cult following by fans of beauty moguls like Kate Moss and Naomi Watts who swear by it, Lucas’ Papaw Ointment has become a basic American girl’s favorite weapon—a.k.a. me. This product truly is the answer to effortless beauty” —Alexis Puebla, Editor

To buy: Lucas’ Papaw Ointment, Amazon, $9

“Quality beauty on a budget tends to be my go-to. This e.l.f. studio brow kit helps me define and shape my eyebrows with a small, easy-to-control brush, and the complementing setting powder gives me bold, natural-looking brows all day long.”—Hannah Marsh, Editor

“If you’re even thinking about picking up a new body lotion, run to Sephora and snag a sample of this Bum Bum Cream. This product is magic and helps to tighten and moisturize your skin without leaving it feeling greasy or heavy. If I’m being totally honest, I initially purchased this because it smells so damn good and now I’m really in love with the benefits.” —Lindsay Goedert, E-Commerce Coordinating Editor

“Summer is officially over, but don’t even try to take my Urban Decay Naked Heat palette away from my grabby hands. Even my fair skin tone gets a beachy glow with the coppers and bronzes, and I love the mix of matte and shimmer shadows. I’m going to be wearing down this palette by winter.” —Caitlin White, Senior Editor

To buy: Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette, Belk, $54

“I love adding a last-minute spritz of this rose water hydrating face mist by Pearlessence before walking out the door every morning. The soft and feminine scent has me feeling all flowery and serene as I’m sipping my morning coffee, while the botanical extracts are soft on the skin providing an all-natural way to wake up sleepy-looking skin. You can give yourself a spritz before moisturizing your skin for a quick quench or spray atop your finished makeup for a hydrating mask of aromatic heaven.” —Alexis Puebla, Editor

To buy: Pearlessence Rose Water Hydrating Mist, Amazon, $20

“While Urban Decay's Naked2 and Naked Heat palettes are both gorgeous, I will always be partial to the OG Naked eyeshadow palette. Of course the perfectly pigmented formula is oh-so-popular for a reason, but there's something about the range of pinks and browns that lets me mix my look up depending on my mood and really makes my eyes pop when I have them on.” —Hannah Marsh, Editor

To buy: Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palette, Macy’s, $54

“After purchasing this beauty sponge, I’ve actually retired my OG BeautyBlender. This awesome pair is only $4.99 right now and has the same bounce and texture that the BeautyBlender does. This sponge applies liquid foundation and blends cream products like a dream—so I’ll be keeping this one around for a while.” —Lindsay Goedert, E-Commerce Coordinating Editor

To buy: EcoTools Perfecting Blender Duo, Ulta Beauty, $5

“I have tried a lot of mascaras—ranging from the mega-splurge to the cheapest one in the drugstore—and I’ll say it: CoverGirl Lashblash The Super Sizer is my favorite right now. I have such trouble with clumping and those black dots under my eyes immediately after I blink the first time, but The Super Sizer’s plastic wand has ensured none of that happens. It separates and enhances my lashes softly enough for a daytime look, but if I load on a couple coats, it gives me the nighttime look I love, without smudging everywhere. Color me hooked.” —Caitlin White, Senior Editor

To buy: Covergirl Super Sizer Mascara, Amazon, $5
