THE BEST DESIGNER FOUNDATION
“This foundation is the closest I’ve come to achieving the elusive ‘no-makeup makeup’ vibe. The shade Fairly Light blends in with my super-pale skin, without leaving lines or washing me out. Best of all, it stays put: When I wear it, I don’t have to do any midday touch-ups on my acne or oil-prone areas.” —Halie LeSavage, fashion features assistant

THE BEST DRUGSTORE FOUNDATION
What first drew me in was the range of shades: There are 40 total! The product itself is super lightweight, but that doesn’t seem to affect the mattifying effect at all. You don’t have to pile too much on to get full coverage. You will forget you’re wearing it.”

THE BEST DESIGNER MASCARA
It honestly doesn’t get more classic than Diorshow. It’s a consistent award-winner and hands down the best thing if you want lashes so dense they look fake. The formula is thick but never clumpy, and the brush hold tons of product.

THE BEST DRUGSTORE MASCARA
CoverGirl’s LashBlast is at the top of my list. The fluffy spooly catches each and every lash, and it gives that Twiggy-level volume. And best thing, it never leave you looking like a raccoon at the end of the day.
