Whether you’re stocking up on your holy grail beauty products or nabbing that big-ticket item that has been sitting in your cart for ages, we know narrowing down your shopping list isn’t easy. Ahead, we tapped some of the biggest names in beauty to get the lowdown on the skin, hair, and makeup products you won’t want to miss.
Stephanie Valentine (AKA Glamzilla)
Hollywood Flawless Filter, Charlotte Tilbury
“If I don’t feel like wearing foundation for the day, I love to use the CT Flawless Filter on the high points of my face and to brighten up my complexion. It gives my skin a “lit from within” texture which is something I always try to achieve!”
Soy Makeup Removing Face Wash, Fresh
“This cleanser has been my skincare staple for years. It’s perfect for my sensitive skin and is best-in-class for removing makeup at the end of the day (yes, even mascara)! As a beauty content creator, I have tried more face washes than you can imagine, and nothing lives up to this gentle but high-performing cleanser.”
BADgal BANG! Volumizing Mascara, Benefit Cosmetics
“I’ve always found mascara hard to navigate. For years, I had lash extensions which made my mascara choices even more limited. But since last year (and my lack of ability to get lash extensions), I was desperate to find a mascara that lifted, separated, and curled well with my natural lashes. I have seen all of that and more with Bad Gal Bang Mascara. My lashes now look even better than when they were fake!”
Tinted Cover Foundation, Nudestix
“Tinted Cover is like a gorgeous natural filter for your skin. Your freckles and flaws will still shine through, but your completion will be brighter, more even, and glowing. You can layer this up for full coverage, but I love using it as a light foundation while reaping the skincare benefits that have been built into the product.”
Phantom Hydrating Dry Shampoo Foam, Amika
“I love these hybrid foam dry shampoos so much! Because they are applied wet and then begin to dry and dissipate any natural oils, they never leave a residue on the hair like some powdered sprays can. The wet application is particularly friendly for tight curls or wavy hair because you can easily work it in without causing your curl to frizz.”
Marjan Rhinestone Bobby Pin, Kitsch X Justine
“A cardinal fashion rule: the best way to elevate an outfit is…accessorize! If you’re a person who is still taking a lot of Zoom calls, then what better way to spice up your meeting looks? For a fun statement look and perfect placement, add the pin into your hair at a slight diagonal, directly over the arch of your eyebrow.”
Muroto Volume Hydro-Texturizing Mist, shu uemura
“Dreaming of beautiful beach waves? Look no further. This luxury formula has pure minerals and deep sea water that shapes natural looking waves, boosts your volume and also helps to hydrate. Mist throughout damp hair, twist and let air dry for perfectly tousled tresses.”
