1. Bioderma Micellar Cleansing Water
We know A French pharmacy staple, the original micellar water for super gentle cleansing and easy makeup removal.
I keep this in my kit for quick and gentle exfoliation before applying makeup - everyone loves it!
Absolutely indulgent but worth the price - they brighten, lift and hydrate tired complexions in record time. A must before an important event or during a plane ride if you can ignore the stares!
I love the entire NB line but this oil in particular gives skin the most incredible texture and diminishes lines immediately.
Like a magic eraser, it spot corrects and brightens tired under eyes like no other. A little goes a long way...which is good since it's a bit of an investment at $70.
The most beautiful, HD quality makeup. Skin appears flawless under even the most scrutinizing camera.
7. Kevyn Aucoin Lip-Liner in medium
Literally the most perfect nude on the planet!
Classic, inexpensive, volume building mascara that doesn't flake or dry out your lashes. A forever favorite.
FA dual Highlighter and Bronzer combo that sculpts gorgeous Hollywood-worthy cheekbones you didn't realize you had. It comes in two shades to flatter a variety of complexions. Don't forget to pick up the brush they sell to go with it!
Seriously, sex in a can. For the most gorgeous hair with mega volume, this favorite smells so divine everyone will literally ask you what fragrance you're wearing. That, is after complimenting you on your perfect hair. A definite must-have.
