HONEST BEAUTY MAGIC BALM
Target

Honest Beauty Magic Balm

I carry Honest Magic Balm in every bag I own. It softens and soothes dry skin anywhere on the face and body. You can wear it alone or over makeup—and use it as a highlighter or a lip gloss. It’s truly magical.” – Daniel Martin, celebrity makeup artist 

Honest Beauty ($18)

CHAPSTICK TINT
Walgreens

ChapStick Total Hydration Moisture + Tint

“I’m pretty obsessed with ChapStick lip tints. I use them on all of my clients, no matter what look we’re doing. On their own, they leave a soft hint of color. They’re also great for touching up lipsticks because they keep your lips hydrated without being overly glossy.” – Matin Maulawizada, celebrity makeup artist 

ChapStick ($5)

LOREAL CONCEALER
Target

L’Oréal Visible Lift Serum Concealer

“L'Oréal’s Visible Lift Serum Concealer is super creamy with a satin finish. I love that it keeps the under-eye area looking hydrated and bright without accentuating fine lines. Plus, it has anti-aging skin-care properties built right in.” – Jenny Patinkin, pro makeup artist and author of Lazy Perfection: The Art of Looking Great Without Really Trying

OLAY REGENERIST CREAM
Walmart

Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream

“Olay makes great creams for women of all ages, but I especially like their Regenerist line. You are never too young to start moisturizing and these are perfect for the price.” – Lori Taylor Davis, global lead artist for Smashbox Cosmetics

NEUTROGENA FACE WIPES
CVS Pharmacy

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes

“I always find myself restocking the original, fragrance-free Neutrogena makeup wipes. They remove all traces of makeup (even waterproof), dirt and oil. I even use them to freshen up and prep skin before everything else.” – Neil Scibelli, celebrity makeup artist

Neutrogena ($8)

MILANI BLUSH
Walgreens

Milani Color Harmony Blush Palette

“Sometimes drugstore blushes are hard to work with because they’re too chalky, but the Milani Color Harmony Palette has a silky texture that blends well on all skin tones.” Ashley Rebecca, editorial and celebrity makeup artist

LOREAL MAKEUP SETTING SPRAY
Walmart

L’Oréal’s Infallible Pro-Spray & Makeup-Extender Setting Spray

L’Oréal Paris ($14)

ACURE ARGAN OIL

Acure Organics Moroccan Argan Oil
