1. Babba Rivera

Age: 31

Location: New York

Job Title: Founder and CEO of Ceremonia 

Favorite beauty product: Ceremonia Scalp Remedy Oil, Aceite de Moska

Three words to describe this product: Nourishing, balancing, shine-boosting

"This product has single-handedly played the greatest role in regrowing my hair after decades of damaging hair rituals, followed by postpartum hair loss. While the product has only been in the market for less than two years, I started using it during the formulation process when I was pregnant. I’ve been using it religiously once a week as part of my weekend wash day routine, applying it before going to bed and letting it soak in during the night before washing it off in the morning. It's worked miracles to balance my scalp, so I no longer have dryness, itchiness or greasy roots."

2. Olivia Dubyak

Age: 26

Location: Colorado

Job Title: Commerce Editor at PureWow

Favorite beauty product: Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment

Three words to describe this product: Effective, protective, easy to use

"I struggle with a lot of redness and inflammation in my fair/sensitive skin. I love a hybrid product, so the Tiger Grass color corrector is phenomenal at helping to neutralize bright red tones and give me sun protection with its SPF 30. It's also a great base for makeup in place of a primer. Ever since it went viral on TikTok, it's been a staple in my beauty routine. My husband has a touch of rosacea on his cheeks and it does wonders for toning down his redness, too."

3. Sarah Lee

Age: 40

Location: Florida

Job Title: CEO and Co-Founder of Glow Recipe

Favorite beauty product: Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow AHA Night Treatment 

Three words to describe this product: Resurfacing, brightening, firming

"Watermelon Glow AHA Night Treatment is such a special product as it’s the reimagined, revamped formula of Glow Recipe’s very first fruit baby: the Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask. I have been using the OG sleeping mask since we started formulating it back in 2015. Not only does it provide gentle exfoliation, but it also has firming benefits from the peptides, brightening effects from the niacinamide, and it delivers deep hydration from the hyaluronic acid and watermelon extract."

4. Sherley Garcia

Age: 29

Location: New York

Job Title: Senior Influencer Marketing Manager at Gallery Media Group

Favorite beauty product: Charlotte Tilbury Magic Vanish Color Corrector

Three words to describe this product: Smooth texture, easy to apply, travel-friendly

"My whole life I’ve been super self-conscious about my genetic dark circles.  It's very hard for me to find products that have great coverage and don’t cake up under my eyes. When I discovered the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Vanish, everything changed. The shade “Fair” has the perfect amount of pink that I need to fully cover my undereye area and the texture makes it very easy for me to wear on its own or under makeup. I haven’t let it go since I picked it up the first time!"

5. Donni Davy

Age: 34

Location: California

Job Title: Euphoria Head Makeup Artist and Co-Founder of Half Magic

Favorite beauty product: Half Magic Face Gems

Three words to describe this product: Sparkly, fun, easy for anyone

"I’ve been using rhinestones on myself for years. Rhinestones and face gems are a quick and easy way to amplify your look and add some fun and flare—whether it’s ultra-minimal or something completely extravagant. When I put them on I feel magical and extraordinary; it’s unapologetically self-celebratory. On Euphoria, they have a very cinematic quality to them as they dip in and out of shadows and light, so they twinkle and sparkle in the cinematography of the show."

6. Sara Baksh

Age: 27

Location: New York

Job Title: Business Operations Manager at Gallery Media Group

Favorite beauty product: Bare Minerals Original Loose Powder Foundation SPF 15

Three words to describe this product: Breathable, easy to apply, lightweight

"This was the first piece of makeup my mom bought for me when I was like 14. By my late teens and college years, I tossed it aside opting for heavier foundations. But now that I'm getting older, and caking up my face less, I'm using this one more often. It's natural looking with the perfect amount of coverage, stays on for a long time, and doesn't transfer as much as liquid formulas do. My face looks and feels like it can breathe and it's super comfy on my skin. It also works perfectly as a finishing powder when I'm going for a heavier makeup look."

7. Deepica Mutyala

Age: 33

Location: Texas

Job Title: Founder and CEO of Live Tinted

Favorite beauty product: Live Tinted Huegloss

Three words to describe this product: Inclusive shade range, creamy texture, packed with skincare ingredients

"It’s my new go-to gloss that I take with me everywhere. I love it so much because it’s the perfect universal neutral shade that looks flattering on all skin tones. We wanted to make sure there are neutral options for everyone, so we launched the gloss in two shades: Proud and Brave. It was thoughtfully created with the BIPOC community in mind and formulated to be like skincare for your lips (containing ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil and hyaluronic acid), so your lips stay smooth and glossy without feeling sticky or tacky."

8. Nicole Briese

Age: 37

Location: Michigan

Job Title: Commerce Director at PureWow

Favorite beauty product: Charlotte Tilbury Beautiful Skin Foundation

Three words to describe this product: Great shade range, coverage, affordable

"I have very pink skin and a lot of foundation tends to be too yellow for me. This covers it better than anything I've tried without giving me that weird tint or washing me out. It also gives the perfect amount of coverage—not too light, like a BB cream, but not heavy or cakey either. It also doesn't settle into creases."

9. Christine Chang

Age: 40

Location: New York

Job Title: CEO and Co-Founder of Glow Recipe

Favorite beauty product: Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops

Three words to describe this product: Glowing, illuminating, dewy skin

"Dew Drops was inspired by what we were seeing on trips to Korea. Top makeup artists were creating stunning glowy, editorial skin looks, but often with products like heavy oils or petroleum jelly. We wanted to challenge ourselves to create a product that could have long-term skincare benefits and illuminate your face without relying on artificial brighteners like mica, glitter or pearl. I reach for the Dew Drops in my daily day and nighttime skincare routine but also after long flights to bring my skin back to life. Or I use it right before a Zoom meeting for that instant skin pick-me-up."

10. Kate Kesselman

Age: 25

Location: New York

Job Title: Creative Strategist and Content Creator at Gallery Media Group

Favorite beauty product: Farmhouse Fresh One Fine Day Flawless Face Polish

Three words to describe this product: Refreshing, cleansing, luxurious

"It's the best exfoliator I have ever gotten! I rarely rebuy products, but this is a must. I have repurchased this every time I run out. It's such a gentle yet effective exfoliator. It also smells great as well and makes my skin feel so smooth and rejuvenated."

11. Steve Kassajikan

Age: 35

Location: California

Job Title: Celebrity Makeup Artist and Global Artist for Urban Decay

Favorite beauty product: Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil

Three words to describe this product: Creamy, great coverage and long-lasting

"I’ve been using this product for almost 15 years! I love it because it glides on like a gel and blends so easily. It's infused with hydrating ingredients (like vitamin E, jojoba oil and cottonseed oil) to go on smoothly and prevent any tugging on the eyelids. It’s also waterproof, so once it sets it won’t budge. You can use it as a classic liner, smudged all over as a shadow base or in the waterline. Plus, it's a great product to use when mapping out a more graphic eye look."

12. Mary Kate McGrath

Age: 43

Location: New York

Job Title: Chief Brand Officer at Gallery Media Group

Favorite beauty product: Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment

ThreThree words to describe this product: Chic, dependable, easy to apply

"It's one swipe and you get a quick hit of color. I also love the packaging. Plus, you can toss it in your bag and it never gets dirty."

13. Sofia Schwarzkopf-Tilbury

Age: 29

Location: London

Job Title: Celebrity Makeup Artist

Favorite beauty product: Charlotte Tilbury Beautiful Skin Radiant Concealer

Three words to describe this product: Conceals, brightens and lifts the look of your face.

"I've been using this in secret for months and my celebrity clients are already in love. We’ve used this on Salma Hayek, Jourdan Dunn, Twiggy, Lily James and even Britney Spears on her wedding day! Charlotte and I had the lab samples behind the scenes with us whilst we were prepping everyone for the Met Gala and Kate Moss couldn’t wait to get her hands on it! It’s a real game-changer for me because it makes it so easy to achieve that flawless, glowing celebrity red carpet skin and feel like the most beautiful version of yourself every day."

14. Candace Davison

Age: 35

Location: Florida

Job Title: Executive Editor at PureWow

Favorite beauty product: Isle of Paradise Day Dew Face Mist

Three words to describe this product: Streak-free, easy to apply, subtle dewiness

"It provides a subtle, buildable glow. I'm not a big makeup wearer, but I tend to have very fair skin and perpetually dark circles under my eyes. A few spritzes of this mist—which smells lightly floral without a hint of self-tanning chemicals—and my skin looks like I just got back from vacation. I've been using it for ten months which doesn't seem long, but it's changed the way I get ready in the morning."

15. Brian O'Connor

Age: 36

Location: Tennessee

Job Title: CCO and Co-Founder of Good Dye Young

Favorite beauty product: Good Dye Young DYEposit

Three words to describe this product: Simple application, innovative, effective

"This is both mine and Hayley [Williams]'s favorite product of all time! It's a 4-in-1 color depositing mask that cleanses, tones, hydrates and bonds your hair. There are over 12 key ingredients in this formula (like broccoli seed oil for shine and coconut oil for hydration) that work really beautifully together to repair and hydrate your hair. There are also over 10 colors to choose from—ranging from natural tones to vivid, so there is a color for everyone. It's also SO easy to use. Just use it in the shower once a week in place of conditioner and you'll have a gorgeous new hair color without the mess of dyeing your hair."

16. Abby Hepworth

Age: 31

Location: New York

Job Title: Fashion Editor at PureWow

Favorite beauty product: Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare DRx Blemish Solutions Acne Eliminating Gel

Three words to describe this product: Fast results, long-lasting, great for all skin types

"I've struggled with acne since I was 10 years old. That's 20 years of pimples wreaking havoc on my face, chest and back. I've used a bunch of different things over the years to manage it, but none have ever worked as well as this Dr. Dennis Gross gel. It has seriously been a complete game changer. My face has been almost entirely free of acne (minus the occasional stress pimple) since I started using this miracle product a little over 2 years ago. Seriously, if 15-year-old me could see my skin now she'd cry tears of joy. Fingers crossed this continues to work just as well as my skin changes over the next decade."

17. Dakota Alexandra

Age: 25

Location: New York

Job Title: Content Creator, Makeup Artist and Tattoo Model

Favorite beauty product: Boldface Makeup B-13 Gray Better Brows

Three words to describe this product: Easy to use, pigmented, budget-friendly

"I love this product because it’s a true gray brow pencil, which I feel is the best shade for me because I don’t like to add any warm tones to my brows. It's super budget-friendly, yet very high quality. There’s a good amount of product in it and it goes on easily. The pencil also isn’t drying and it's super pigmented."

18. Karen Lasley

Age: 40s

Location: New York

Job Title: Executive Admin at VaynerMedia

Favorite beauty product: Palmer's, Skin Success With Vitamin E, Anti-Dark Spot Face Cream

Three words to describe this product: Effective, guaranteed results, consistent

"I've been using this product for over 15 years and it really does what it says. It fades dark spots and minimizes stretch marks. It also gives your complexion a nice healthy glow. It's not sticky or greasy. It does not last in my house because as soon as I buy a jar, my daughters are snatching it up and claiming it as theirs. It really works!"

19. Alexa Persico

Age: 30

Location: New York

Job Title: Founder of Alexa Persico Cosmetics

Favorite beauty product: Alexa Persico Cosmetics “Brighten Me Baby” Setting Mist

Three words to describe this product: Glowy, hydrating, invigorating

"It's the only setting spray I have ever used that gives me the perfect amount of glow. This formula will literally make your skin look like it is glistening. It contains light-reflecting properties, and it's infused with rose water, hyaluronic acid and niacinamide, that will leave the skin feeling so refreshed. It truly is a must-have and completes my makeup routine every morning!"

20. Clancy Fink

Age: 30s

Location: New York

Job Title: Associate Creative Director at VaynerMedia

Favorite beauty product: Aveeno Positively Smooth Shave Gel

Three words to describe this product: Effective, hydrating, reliable

"It actually works to slow hair growth. I swear my leg hair regrowth is way faster when I don't use it! It's also very gentle on my skin and an overall reliable product with great value. Other shave gels just dry my skin out but this one doesn't at all, which why I've been using it for over 15 years."

21. Judi Gabbay

Age: 33

Location: New York

Job Title: Celebrity Makeup Artist

Favorite beauty product: Charlotte Tilbury’s Hollywood Flawless Filter

Three words to describe this product: Sheer coverage, lightweight, glowy

"I’ve been using this product for about two years and I'm totally obsessed. It looks like a filter, keeps skin hydrated, as well as brightens and smoothes skin. I love wearing it during the day under a fuller coverage foundation for a glow that peeks through, or over my full coverage foundation to bring luminosity back to the skin."

22. Aliya Saiyed

Age: 22

Location: New York

Job Title: Creative at VaynerMedia

Favorite beauty product: Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush

Three words to describe this product: Pigmented, blendable, long-lasting

"I love the Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush because it adds the perfect amount of color to my face and the smallest amount goes a long way! I feel like I'm getting my money's worth because the product is going to last a long time. I love that it's blendable and can be built up to one's desire. I also love the range of shades they have because there's a shade for everyone."

23. Jennifer Korab

Age: 45

Location: New Jersey

Job Title: Hairstylist and Salon Owner of Renaissance Salon & Spa

Favorite beauty product: Pureology Color Fanatic Leave-In Hair Treatment Spray

Three words to describe this product: Sulfate-free, vegan formula, moisturizing

"I have been using this product for over 12 years. This product is my absolute favorite. It has 21 benefits that prime, protect and perfect your hair. It also moisturizes, strengthens and repairs—leaving your hair full of shine."

24. Khadisha Ahmed

Age: 24

Location: New York

Job Title: Analytics Associate at VaynerMedia

Favorite beauty product: Dior Forever Clean Matte Foundation

Three words to describe this product: Clean, long-lasting, sweat-proof

"The Dior Forever Clean Matte Foundation is a clean product which means no parabens or harsh chemicals on your face. I have sensitive skin and eczema and I haven’t seen anything get triggered by this product. It has light to medium coverage, so it can be used as a light-tinted base for your makeup, or you can build it up to your liking for more coverage. Overall, it has such a flawless matte finish, which has my makeup looking photoshopped and soft. It’s also super long-lasting for up to 24 hours."

25. Andrea Lisbona Vives

Age: 36

Location: Florida

Job Title: Founder and CEO of Touchland

Favorite beauty product: Caudalie Vinoclean Gentle Foam Cleanser

Three words to describe this product: Airy foamy texture, hydrating, pleasant scent

"I have tested soooo many cleansers, so I can confidently say this is my all-time favorite. It’s the perfect way to relax and kick off my skincare ritual every night. My skincare ritual gives me an opportunity to clear my mind and ground myself in the moment, and this cleanser is the perfect way to trigger that moment of calm. For me, starting with a pleasing cleansing experience allows me to feel clean and prepare my skin for the following steps of my routine, including my favorite serum and night cream."

26. Rianna Rabinowitz

Age: 23

Location: New York

Job Title: Senior Media Analyst at Gallery Media Group

Favorite beauty product: Ilia Limitless Lash Mascara

Three words to describe this product: Natural, refreshing, consistent

"This is the best mascara brush I have ever used. My pet peeve is when my eyelashes clump together, and this brush has a longer, bristled comb that separates them so well. It lengthens and gives volume to my lashes, while still looking natural. Plus, this product is made of organic materials which makes Ilia a great clean brand. I also think the mascara lasts longer (doesn't go bad) as quickly as other brands."

27. Renée Loiz

Age: 45

Location: California

Job Title: Celebrity Makeup Artist

Favorite beauty product: Saint Jane Luxury Sun Ritual Pore Smoothing Sunscreen

Three words to describe this product: Pore minimizing, hydrating, luminizing

"This is my must-have kit staple! First of all, the smell of jasmine and desert rose you get when you apply it to your face is absolutely amazing! Such a clean and comforting smell, not at all cloying. And let’s not forget all the other important factors of this sunscreen. You can wear it without makeup as it minimizes pores and leaves skin glowing. There is no white cast after application so it works on every skin tone. If you’re wearing makeup, the sunscreen doesn’t alter the color of your foundation and because of the pore smoothing qualities, it gives your makeup and skin a flawless finish. This sunscreen is just an all-around game changer."

28. Macy Brandon

Age: 22

Location: New York

Job Title: SOC Creator Resident at The Sasha Group

Favorite beauty product: Saie Glowy Super Gel Lightweight Dewy Highlighter

Three words to describe this product: Natural, dewy, lightweight

"I hate to wear foundation because of how it feels on my skin but I love to look natural and glowy year-round, so this is easily a favorite of mine. It adds a little bit of tint to even my skin tone but has a super natural finish. It's also extremely lightweight and melts nicely into the skin."

29. Gisaura Laporte

Age: 35

Location: Georgia

Job Title: Hairstylist, Makeup Artist and Owner of Hair and Makeup by Gisaura in Sola Salons

Favorite beauty product: Temptu Airbrush

Three words to describe this product: A 3-1 (contour, blush and highlight), lightweight, comfortable wear

"I have been using the Temptu Airbrush for five years. I also use the airbrush on all of my bridal clients. Some of them would even say “It doesn’t feel like I am wearing anything at all.” I love the tool because it delivers a thinner application and it doesn’t sit on the face like a regular foundation. It gives such buildable coverage that lasts all day or night (for up to 16 hours). Overall, it leaves such a natural, flawless look."

30. Courtney Springer

Age: 28

Location: New York

Job Title: Care Manager at Rehabilitation Support Services Inc.

Favorite beauty product: Elf Matte Putty Primer

Three words to describe this product: Mattifying, smooth, affordable

"Since I have oily skin, it does a great job at keeping my face matte and smooth throughout the day. It’s also great to use when you don’t feel like wearing makeup."

31. Priyanka Ganjoo

Age: 36

Location: New York

Job Title: CEO and Founder of Kulfi Beauty

Favorite beauty product: Kulfi Beauty Main Match Concealer

Three words to describe this product: Lightweight, hydrating, buildable

"I love this product not only because of its quality but also because of the narrative it serves to my community. Being a South Asian woman, I struggled with finding a makeup brand that would focus on and fit the needs of my skin tone and concerns. When creating the Main Match concealer, I designed the shade 'Pome Pome' to match me perfectly. The peach undertones help color correct my dark under-eye circles, which is common for my ethnicity. The formula is so buildable and skin-like that it doesn't crease throughout the day."

32. Ariana Schrier

Age: 27

Location: New York

Job Title: Social Media Strategist at Gallery Media Group

Favorite beauty product: bareMinerals Gen Nude Blonzer

Three words to describe this product: Pigmented, 2-in-1, sunkissed finish

"The bareMinerals Blonzer in shade 'Kiss of Copper' is my holy grail product. It doubles as a bronzer and a blush and instantly levels up my makeup look. After application, I'm left with the prettiest sun-kissed glow."

33. Lilly Rojas

Age: 47

Location: New York

Job Title: Co-Founder of Lili and Cata Nail Salon

Favorite beauty product: Apres Gel-X Nail Extension Kit

Three words to describe this product: Natural, lightweight, strong

"I love these gel extensions because they instantly transform the way I feel with them on. I feel put together even if I’m wearing sweats and no makeup. They're also so versatile and can be shaped, painted and designed to fit my mood. Plus, I get compliments on them all the time!"

34. Carrie Zettler

Age: 28

Location: New York

Job Title: Copywriter at VaynerMedia

Favorite beauty product: CeraVe Hydrating Facial Cleanser

Three words to describe this product: Hydrating, affordable, refreshing

"My derm recommended it and I was shocked to like something so much because I haven’t had a lot of success with other recommended products. Part of it was that it took me a long time to realize I had dry skin. You don’t need to apply much of it and it takes off my makeup so well. It leaves my skin feeling super moisturized, especially compared to a foaming cleanser. Plus, the product is super affordable and easy to find at almost any drugstore."

35. Erinn Courtney

Age: 35

Location: California

Job Title: Celebrity and StyleSeat Hairstylist

Favorite beauty product: The Roots Virgin Lacquer Edge Control

Three words to describe this product: Trustworthy, integral, capable

"I've been using this product since it was introduced to me in 2014. I use this product for everything—from loc maintenance to creating a stunning sleek ponytail. This edge control has an incredible hold, especially for curly hair. It also works on all hair types to create neatness and tame flyaways in protective styling. Plus, this one doesn't leave a white filmy residue after it dries like other edge control products."

36. Kara Buzzeo

Age: 28

Location: New York

Job Title: Sr. Marketing Operations Associate at Nomad Marketing

Favorite beauty product: Kinfield Sunglow Luminizing Sunscreen

Three words to describe this product: Luminizing, moisturizing, lightweight

"It gives your skin a natural glow and protects against sun damage. It also works for all skin tones and it's perfect for a no-makeup makeup look or as a base for the day (FYI: no flashback in photos!). Plus, it just smells great."

37. Jonathan Van Ness

Age: 35

Location: California

Job Title: Hairstylist, Founder of JVN and Grooming Expert on Queer Eye

Favorite beauty product: JVN Complete Blowout Styling Milk

Three words to describe this product: Anti-humidity, heat protectant, smoothing

"I love all JVN products—they are all my babies. But I'm currently obsessing over my brand's most recent launch, Complete Blowout Milk. It's a clean, lightweight heat-activated styling milk that protects against heat and humidity. It also gives a long-lasting style and adds smoothness to your hair. I have been using it for the last two years; it's been my secret weapon!"

38. Emma Walsh

Age: 22

Location: New York

Job Title: Influencer Marketing Coordinator at Gallery Media Group

Favorite beauty product: CeraVe Hydrating Facial Cleanser

Three words to describe this product: Simple, gentle, effective

"Skincare influencer Hyram put the humble CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser on the map, and for good reason! It checks all the boxes for me: it’s gentle, effective and affordable. I use it as the second step of my double cleanse routine. I love that it has a creamy consistency and it cleanses my skin without leaving it dry. This is the only cleanser I will buy"

39. Charity LeBlanc

Age: 33

Location: Florida

Job Title: Content Creator and DIY Vivid Hair Color Expert for Sally Beauty

Favorite beauty product: Strawberry Leopard Hair Color

Three words to describe this product: Nourishing, vibrant, DIY friendly

"I’ve been using Strawberry Leopard since they first came out and it’s been my go-to ever since. I love this hair color line because it is so easy to use, has a great variety of shades and it's nourishing for my hair."

40. Delia Curtis

Age: 25

Location: New York

Job Title: Editorial Assistant at PureWow

Favorite beauty product: CeraVe Renewing SA Cleanser

Three words to describe this product: Gentle, soothing, strong

"This is my ride-or-die face wash. As someone who struggled with acne for years (and I'm talking like 10+ years), this product truly changed my life. It's a gentle liquid-to-foam face wash filled with ceramides and salicylic acid that help to keep the little red monsters from sprouting up at inconvenient times. It strengthens my skin while also shedding off the extra layers and it calms redness and swelling."

41. Bianca Renee

Age: 33

Location: California

Job Title: Content Creator and DIY Curly Hair Expert for Sally Beauty

Favorite beauty product: Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie

Three words to describe this product: Moisturizing, strengthening, frizz tamer

"The Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie was actually the first hair product made specifically for curly hair that I had tried and it's the reason I started my natural hair channel. After finding this product I was excited to share it with the world and it ultimately started my YouTube career. Although I have tried many new curly hair products over the last nine years, this product still does wonders for my curls and will always have a special place in my heart."

42. Kate Green

Age: 20

Location: California

Job Title: Student at UCLA

Favorite beauty product: Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara

Three words to describe this product: Affordable, lengthening, dramatic finish

"This has been my go-to mascara for years now and it's usually the only eye makeup I wear. It's a true black shade, and it's lengthening, voluminizing and holds a curl. I can wear it on my top and bottom lashes for a full school day and avoid smudgy raccoon eyes. People ask me all the time if I'm wearing falsies, but all I do is pop on two to three layers of this stuff! The one caveat is that I don't mind my lashes looking a bit spidery. I'm all about dramatic lashes, but if you want a more subtler look, this product might not be for you."

43. Gregory Patterson

Age: 40s

Location: New York

Job Title: Celebrity Hairstylist and DIY Color & Styling Expert for Sally Beauty

Favorite beauty product: Ion Luxe Supercharged HairDryer

Three words to describe this product: Technology, great results, budget-friendly

"Seriously, I love this blow dryer because it delivers the latest and greatest technology at a more attainable price point. The drying time is reduced in such a major way, thanks to its ceramic ionic technology, which utilizes the hair's moisture to keep it hydrated. It also helps to plump the hair, reduce frizz and minimize flyaways. Plus, the styling tool is lightweight and did I mention the air flow velocity!?!"

44. Chelsea Candelario

Age: 28

Location: New York

Job Title: Associate Editor at PureWow

Favorite beauty product: Mielle Avocado Moisturizing Hair Milk

Three words to describe this product: Moisturizing, curl-defining, lightweight

"When am I not talking about this hair milk? Since the beginning of my natural hair journey, I've returned to this product over and over again. Whenever my hair feels super dry, I can count on its ingredients (aka avocado oil, aloe juice and jojoba oil) to bring back moisture. I always include this in my wash routine and my curls look so much more defined because of it."

45. Dr. Anne Beal

Age: 60

Location: Washington D.C

Job Title: CEO and Founder of AbsoluteJOI Skincare

Favorite beauty product: Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick

Three words to describe this product: Pigmented, comfortable, extensive shade range

"I love a bold lip and this line of lipsticks is deeply pigmented with a good range of colors that never fail to pop. It has a satin finish so it doesn't dry out or irritate my lips. It really does give you the best of both worlds. The lipstick offers the coverage and staying power of a matte, with the lip-loving satiny feel of a gloss or tint. When it does need to be reapplied after a meal, I'm OK with that since I love pulling out the little gold lipstick tube from my bag"

46. Emily Boulin

Age: 34

Location: Maryland

Job Title: Hairstylist and DIY Vivid Hair Color Expert for Sally Beauty

Favorite beauty product: Good Dye Young Hair Color 

Three words to describe this product: Vibrant, long lasting, conditioning

"As an artist, I often find myself buying more than one color to customize the perfect shades for myself and my clients. I’ve never been more in love with a color line straight from the tube than these shades. This brand is also inclusive, cruelty-free and eco-friendly, which is something I feel can totally get behind."

Age: 33

Location: Maine

Job Title: Hairstylist and DIY Vivid Color Expert for Sally Beauty

Favorite beauty product: EVA NYC Mane Magic 10-1 Primer

Three words to describe this product: Affordable, tangle-free, moisturizing

"I love this product because it's the perfect one-stop shop. It strengthens hair, while providing heat protection, UV protection and frizz reduction. Plus, it cuts down your drying time. It’s also free of any harsh parabens and is 100 percent vegan."

48. Andrew Fitzsimons

Age: 35

Location: California

Job Title: Celebrity Hairstylist and Founder of Andrew Fitzsimons Hair

Favorite beauty product: Andrew Fitzsimons Apres Sexe Texture Spray

Three words to describe this product: Texturizing, voluminous, strong hold

"In my line of work as a hairstylist, texture spray is one of the most-used products in my kit. Although it's such an essential product, it's one that is really hard to get right. I always want a certain ratio of buildable hold that's touchable, texturizing and smells great, so I created my favorite version of this product. Yes, I am certainly biased, but we spent years developing and testing formulas to achieve this one!"

49. Antoinette Bullock

Age: 30

Location: Florida

Job Title: Content Creator and DIY Natural Hair Expert for Sally Beauty

Favorite beauty product: The Doux Mousse Def Texture Foam

Three words to describe this product: Reliable, super lightweight, tames frizz

"I love that this product provides shine, volume and definition to all curl types. You can enjoy a crunch-free, long-lasting style without any flaking. It's perfect for my twist-outs, wash and gos and roller sets. Overall, The Doux Mousse Def Texture Foam is reliable. I know it will work perfectly by itself and I can achieve any style I desire whenever I use it. It tames any frizz or flyaways and gives me the ultimate definition. It's also super lightweight because it's a foam, so it doesn't weigh down my hair at all."

Three words to describe this product: Soothing, hydrating, rich in antioxidants

"I love how the five oils (jojoba, argan, olive, neroli and rosehips) work together to hold hydration in the skin through the day. The olive oil reduces the feeling of inflammation in the skin, while the argan oil protects my skin against the sun damage I’m constantly battling from my tanning days in the ’80s. Also, the smell (the neroli and rosehips combo) is inspired by a memory I have of being a little girl, standing in front of some honeysuckle bushes with my grandma at my childhood home. She was showing me how you can taste a drop of honey inside the flowers. It was a magical moment with her and I captured that loving moment in the bottle. Clients constantly compliment me on the smell and how the product makes them feel. For me, that is the ultimate compliment."

Favorite beauty product: Charlotte Tilbury Magic Serum

Three words to describe this product: Glowy, hydrating, smoothing

"This is one of my all-time favorites. It makes my skin look plump, smooth and glowy! It contains glycerin, lactic acid, hyaluronic acid and polyglutamic acid—all humectants that help create an immediate plumping effect that makes the skin look younger and smoother.  It also contains shea oil, which helps to lock in moisture and niacinamide, which is great for tone and texture. And it has a very subtle iridescence to it—not enough to look shiny or glittery, but enough to make the skin look luminous."
