There’s nothing better than finding the beauty product that changes your life. So imagine how amazing it is to find multiple brands that you can’t live without. That’s what happened with us after discovering Westman Atelier, Ilia, and Jones Road. We’ve picked the best of the best: the 10 beauty products that make our mornings easier, keep our skin glowing, and that we just can’t live without.
In a trend we can definitely get behind, the beauty industry finally seems to be embracing the “less is more” motto. Ilia’s Super Skin Tint Serum is a cult-favorite, thanks to the ‘your skin but better’ low-key look it gives you. It’s more like tinted skincare than makeup, because the formula is packed with SPF 40 and active levels of niacinimide. Maybe it’s date night and you need a little more coverage: go for Westman Atelier’s Vital Skin Foundation Stick. It’s never cake-y or heavy, and the stick is perfect for on-the-go moments too.
To round out your perfectly glowing, even skin, we’ve moved away from concealer and towards low lighter. This Rodial Lowlighter is perfect for concealing dark circles, and you only need a little dab of product. It reflects light away from the circles, giving you the perfectly rested look every morning. Westman Atelier’s Lit Up Highlighter stick is a subtle, shimmery dream for the high points of your face.
One of the reasons we’re so obsessed with this edit is that the products are multi-use. Westman Atelier’s Baby Cheeks Blush Stick and the Jones Road Miracle Balm are two perfect examples. All you need to do is dab on your cheeks, your eyes, or your lips for a healthy flush of color.
Finally, your eyes! Most mornings, even if don’t do anything else, I’ll brush out my brows and slick on some mascara. After all, your eyebrows can change the shape of your face! Kevyn Aucoin’s Precision Pencil makes it easy to fill out the brows, and Ilia’s Fullest Volumizing Mascara will make it look like you have falsies.
Some finishing touches, if you’re feeling fancy: Charlotte Tilbury’s Airbrush Setting Spray to keep your face looking picture-perfect for hours. And a spritz of my favorite fragrance right now from clean beauty brand Heretic, Dirty Rose.
