1.Oil blotters you'll want to stash in your black crossbody right this second. These charcoal sheets remove excess oil without ruining your makeup in the process and..wait...what's that? It's your greasy t-zone running away in fear. Problem solved.
2.A Neutrogena clarifying shampoo because that ten pounds of dry shampoo you used two days ago is still trapped in your roots, but have no fear! This anti-residue wash deep cleans build-up that would otherwise lead to lack of body, excessive grease, and *gulp* stringiness.
3.A NYX setting spray to lock in your makeup, because it only took about three hours of blending to get it to look this way. So humidity, sweat, tears: it's all irrelevant when you've topped your foundation with this magic stuff, which works to mattify your makeup and prevent it from turning into a greasy mess (no small feat).
4.A cult-favorite Fanola purple shampoo that nips brassiness in the bud. The violent pigment in this formula works to wash away unwanted yellow in your 'do, meaning you can extend the time between salon visits meaning you can SAVE A TON OF MONEY. Easy + affordable? Someone pinch me.
5.A blending sponge to condense your many, many brushes into just one tool. This squishy BB can be used for everything from concealer to setting powder, all while providing a natural finish that is (*IMPORTANT*) not blotchy. It truly blends everything to perfection so that you don't have spots of cake-y, oompa loompa orange scatted across your cheekbones.
6.Bliss eye masks capable of convincing the world that you did, in fact, get a solid eight hours of sleep last night. These holographic patches use an impressive blend of acetyl hexapeptide-8, sodium hyaluronate, and xylitol to reduce puffiness, smooth fine lines, and hit cancel on all dark circles.
7.A Tweezerman folding comb designed with tiny metal teeth to glide through even the *clumpiest* of mascara. This works to separate and define each lash to get you the most coveted compliment of all time: Are those your real lashes?
8.OPI drying drops that layers your mani with jojoba and vitamin e, creating a barrier that both nourishes and protects your nails whilst they're still drying. Hasta la vista, pillow smudges! You'll no longer we be ruining my carefully applied polish.
9.A dual-ended eyeliner stamp because, IN SPITE OF YOUR BEST EFFORTS, achieving the perfect cat eye is hard and this easy-to-use tool makes it about 1000x easier. All you'll have to do is cover the stamp in eyeliner, apply to your lashline, and your wing will be done in mere seconds. You won't even have to use/waste 10 makeup wipes and several years of your life in order to achieve it.
10.Bioderma micellar water that tackles both makeup and excess oil in the laziest way possible: with just a few swipes of a cotton pad. Not only will this gentle formula leave your skin feeling refreshed, but it'll *also* prevent excess shine from creeping in mid-afternoon (at about the same time you're in desperate need of caffeine).
11.A makeup cleaner because YES, you need to deep clean your brushes. Not only are your makeup tools a breeding ground for bacteria (and a pimple apocalypse waiting to happen), but applying foundation with a brush covered in built-up foundation? Not ideal.
12.Solaroil to banish the bane of your existence — weak and brittle nails with cuticles that look like they were mauled by a wild animal. Just massage this oil into your nails and cuticles every night before going to bed. With daily use, your nails will begin to grow and strengthen (seriously, just read the overwhelmingly positive reviews) and your ripped-up cuticles will begin to heal/not look completely terrible.
13.A Charlotte Tilbury tinted moisturizer that provides a sun-kissed glow, hydration, *and* actively blurs pores and hides redness. This even takes away the headache of finding your perfect color match: the product comes out white and adjusts to perfectly suit your skin (especially awesome for someone who just went on a beach vacation and their go-to makeup is now just a teeny bit too light).
14.A no-frills O'Keeffe's lip balm for anyone who is ready to bid adieu to dry, chapped, crack-when-you-smile lips. Not only is this formula super moisturizing, but it also has a cooling effect here to give your sinuses a minty, awakening treat that can *only* be rivaled by a large glass of cold brew. Ironically something I'm in desperate need of right now.
15.A Schick dermaplaning razor sent from heaven for people who are done with the pains of plucking and the expense of waxing. This rids stray brow hairs and unwanted peach fuzz, all while ridding your complexion of dead skin to reveal a smoother and brighter complexion.
16.Precision tip cotton swabs to replace your manicured fingernail when it comes to sharpening cat eyes, cleaning shadow fallout, or erasing lipstick feathering. Coloring inside the lines of a picture? Easy. Coloring inside the lines of your lips? Genuinely one of the hardest things to do on planet earth.
17.A tube of Glossier Cloud Paint available in six gorgeous shades ranging from sunny corals to brownish nudes. Blush is tricky because just one swipe can result in an unnaturally Barbie pink cheek, which is where this gel-cream formula shines: it’s got a buildable formula that allows you to manipulate the color to be as subtle or as prominent as you want.
18.An ice roller to help nix puffiness and swelling (did someone say lymphatic drainage?), as well as redness and inflammation caused from things like, say, an eyebrow wax. In the wise words of a prophet: go ahead and ice ice baby.
19.Flexible curling rods that allow you to wake up with ready-to-go hair. These are pros at giving you the perfect waves without subjecting your 'do to any more heat damage, resulting in my burnt split-ends, tired eyes, and weak upper arms crying tears of relief. If you're constantly running late, please meet your new low-maintenance soulmate.
20.An Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy lipstick with a favorite nine-letter word: HYDRATION. This creamy, medium-to-full coverage formula will keep your pout moisturized for up to six hours — especially impressive given that most of my lip balms can't even do that.
21.A Kenra Professional finishing spray that contains murumuru butter to add hydration and shine to any styled mane. The best part? It'll also give your curled-to-perfection hair a dose of volume and hold *without* making it look like you put about five gallons of product in it.
22.A Maybelline concealer formulated with goji berry and Haloxyl because no one needs to know that you binged all of The Office yet again last night. Just a quick swipe of this and *poof* your dark circles are now a thing of the past.
23.An Aquis hair towel designed with a microfiber construction that is super-absorbent and cuts drying time by up to half — meaning you'll be able to spend less time on your hair and more time on things that matter. Like Instagram scrolling! Or watching yet another conspiracy theory doc on Youtube!
24.An Elizabeth Mott eye primer capable of keeping your shadow and liner in tact all 👏 day 👏 long 👏. That's right, folks! No creasing, smudging, fallout, or crying under the watch of this cruelty-free must-have.
25.A palm-sized Tangle Teezer perfect for anyone trying to detangle their 'do during a hectic morning commute! This brush comes with click-on cover that makes it the ideal tool to toss into your bag (knowing it won't collect any of the accumulated dirt residing on the bottom of your black work tote).
26.A Hair Dance powder dry shampoo especially great at vacuuming up grease and adding body sans any leftover chalky white residue. Pro tip: If you add some into your roots before bed, you'll wake up with a completely refreshed scalp that looks like it was shampooed five minutes ago (...as opposed to five days ago).
27.A L'Oréal two-step lipstick that guarantees no fading, no bleeding, no transfer, no need to reapply. How? One end contains color while the other contains a conditioning balm, designed to lock in color and prevent it from budging 👏 all 👏 day 👏 long 👏.
28.A hypoallergenic Maybelline conditioning mascara in *gasp* not black! Opting for clear is a lovely idea since it volumizes your lashes without adding more harshness. Black mascara + dark circles? That equals to even darker circles, and you are currently feeling way too lazy to add the step of concealer.
29.A Lipstick Queen lipstick packaged in deceivingly green form, but surprise! It has nothing in common with Kermit. This moisturizing formula will reveal a perfectly pink hue within seconds, one that's totally unique to *your* pH balance. If you've been on the hunt for the perfect every day color, this option is genuinely tailored to you.
30.A Handmade Heroes coconut sugar scrub that acts as pout prep for even the the most drying of matte lipsticks. Not only does this smell amazing, but it exfoliates away all dry, flaky skin that would prevent you from rocking that classic red lip you're finally going to try out tonight.
31.A SKINFOOD finishing powder formulated with peach extract and calamin powder. Swipe this onto the most oily patches of your face (*stares at t-zone*), and rest assured that you will remain shine-free all day long.
32.An Xtava diffuser to give you the most *chef kisses fingers* defined curls of your life. This tool is designed with 360 degree airflow, which is just a fancy way of saying that heat will evenly distribute to dry each strand to perfection without causing any unwanted frizz in the process.
33.A simplehuman compact mirror truly worth the price tag. This little item is designed with an LED light that mimics natural sunlight so you can blend concealer to perfection, plus the handheld size makes it ideal for both travel and everyday use (from your dim-lit home bathroom to your office cubicle best defined by too much AC and fluorescent lighting).
34.Tend solution because ingrown hairs and razor bumps are truly the pits. Just spread this lotion onto whichever body part you plan on waxing/shaving (and yes, it's safe to use on the bikini area...I know that's the question haunting your pretty little mind) and POOF! All skin irritation and bumps will vanish.
35.A Maybelline eyebrow definer pencil with a dual-ended design that allows for natural-looking brows; just use one end for shading, and the opposite spoolie brush end for blending. The result? Facial caterpillars that look like twins (not sisters) with minimal effort/artistic skill required.
36.A silicone massage brush that boosts the effectiveness of your daily cleanser by adding some gentle exfoliation à la BPA-free bristles, which ensure your pores have been stripped of all remaining makeup. This is especially great for warmer months, when sweat gets trapped on the surface of your skin!
37.Shadow shields to help you achieve a perfectly even smoky eye while avoiding the dreaded ~raccoon eye~ effect that comes from that grey shadow you love so much. These nifty little adhesives will collect all that fallout AKA you won't have subtle of smudges of shimmery brown sprinkled across your cheeks.
38.A Skintimate 2-In-1 moisturizer capable of making every lazy person in the 🌎 jump for joy. This shea butter-, soy protein-, and aloe-infused formula acts as both a shaving cream and a skin conditioner, meaning you can skip the whole "waiting for your lotion to dry before FINALLY putting on clothes" process. Your limbs will by hydrated the moment you step onto your bathroom tile.
