- Business Insider 16:42November 20, 201910 beauty trends that should disappear by 2020Steve Granitz / Contributor/Getty,Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic/Getty Some beauty trends that were popular throughout the 2010s haven't exactly aged well.
Although they were popular throughout the 2010s, tanning beds can be dangerous and increase one's risk of developing skin cancer.
Graphic, negative-space eyeliner should be left behind since it's not flattering for most eye shapes or for daily wear.
Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. The 2010s welcomed plenty of skin-care, makeup, and hair trends — but not all of them are worth carrying into the 2020s.
Here are 10 beauty trends from the past decade that should be left behind. Tanning beds were especially big in the 2010s, but they're still not a wise idea.
Tanning beds were a big deal in the early 2010s, especially since major TV shows like MTV's "Jersey Shore" featured a cast of stars who proudly used them on a regular basis.
But tanning beds can increase your risk of developing skin cancer and they can prematurely age your skin.
As Dr. Caren Campbell, a board-certified dermatologist based in California, told Insider, "Using a tanning bed leads to increased breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin, which causes signs of premature aging [like] wrinkles, sun spots, and broken blood vessels."
There's a reason thick eyeliner isn't as popular as it once was.
Steve Granitz / Contributor/Getty
Throughout the early 2010s, many beloved celebrities and TV characters coated their lids with eyeliner, but celebrity makeup artist Gita Bass said this trend is better left in the past.
"To nail the extreme eyeliner you need both a specific eye shape and precise application or it can look harsh, raccoon-like, and really unflattering," she told Insider.
Glitter is still trendy, but putting stuff from the craft store on your eyes isn't a great idea.
In the 2010s, sparkly eyelids were a popular trend — and some used craft-store glitter to achieve the look.
But as Bass told Insider, craft-store glitter has no place in one's vanity, especially since there are so many sparkly, eye-safe products out there.
"Our skin is our biggest organ and it's super absorbent, so we have to be extra mindful of the products we put on it," she said. "Craft glitter is not designed with the delicate eye area in mind, and it can be really damaging — especially if you have sensitive eyes."

- Business Insider 01:05November 19, 2019I've been using this foundation every day for more than 4 years now — here’s why I won't use anything elseInstagram/YSL Beauty I used to view foundation as the first of many, many layers of makeup I needed every day.
But since using YSL Touche Éclat Foundation ($54) more than four years ago, I've been able to reduce the amount of makeup products I use and the time it takes to do my beauty routine in half.
It has medium coverage and a slew of skin-care ingredients too that give my skin a natural radiance and glow.

Despite being a beauty writer for more than five years, I never gave much thought to my foundation. My original philosophy was that if I was going to use concealer, contour, and add some blush, there's no real point in overthinking what went underneath.

- Business Insider 19:13November 17, 2019The surprising real names of 14 popular beauty influencersPresley Ann/Getty Images Jeffree Star, James Charles, and NikkieTutorials are some of the biggest names in beauty.
However, the three YouTubers are among many internet stars who don't actually use their real names online.
NikkieTutorials, for example, is actually named Nikkie de Jager.
Patrick Starrr also uses a fake last name — his real one is Simondac. Just about everyone on internet uses a screen name of some sort — and beauty influencers are no exception.
From Jeffree Star to James Charles, many of the biggest names in beauty go by different names online. NikkieTutorials and Patrick Starrr, for example, both use pseudonyms and screen names to better suit their online personas. So do Zoella and Tati Westbrook.
Here's are 14 influencers who have done the same.NikkieTutorials — Nikkie de Jager
Eugene Gologursky/Stringer/Getty Images
Though NikkieTutorials is one of the most popular YouTubers in the beauty space — she has more than 12.3 million subscribers — few people reference her by her full name: Nikkie de Jager.
While speaking to Teen Vogue in 2011, de Jager said she once had a YouTube channel called "something like GlamourGirlx3," but knew she wanted a name that sounded "more professional."
"I had to change the name," de Jager told Teen Vogue. "Since I knew beauty videos were called tutorials, I thought, 'Why not just take my name and put 'tutorials' after it?' That's how 'NikkieTutorials' was born."
James Charles — James Charles Dickinson

After starting his YouTube channel in 2016, James Charles grew a fan base of more than 16 million subscribers relatively quickly. Still, many of his fans only know his shortened moniker.
According to a 2014 tweet from the YouTuber, Charles stopped using his last name, Dickinson, to avoid jokes being made regarding his sexuality.
Manny MUA — Manny Gutierrez

Though the YouTuber hasn't kept his last name, Gutierrez, a secret, he doesn't often use it on social media. Instead, his YouTube channel, Twitter account, and Instagram page all feature the name Manny MUA, short for Manny Makeup Artist.
He discussed the pseudonym in one of his first videos back in 2014, saying: "The meaning behind my YouTube name? Well, my name's Manny, and I'm a makeup artist. Manny MUA."

Over the past few years, some of the internet's biggest stars have shared their glamorous beauty transformations online. Jeffree Star, for example, has had his makeup done by other artists on camera, while Jaclyn Hill has shared tutorials that show her natural appearance.
Here's a look at what 14 beauty influencers look like when they're not wearing makeup.Nikkie de Jager — who's known as NikkieTutorials — shared a side-by-side look at her face with and without makeup.
In a 2015 video titled "The Power of MAKEUP!," de Jager said she was inspired by an episode of "RuPaul's Drag Race" to show show her followers just how drastically you can change your appearance with makeup.
On the left side of her face, she used 10 beauty products, including the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer, and the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette. On the right side, however, she used none.
She's also shared complete makeup transformations online.
In June, de Jager uploaded a video called "FULL FACE OF FLAWLESS: In-Depth Makeup Tutorial." She attempted to give herself a "soft beat" makeover after a Twitter user said she wasn't capable of creating the look.
Throughout the video, she used products from brands like Marc Jacobs and Fenty Beauty to creat rosy cheeks, matte eyes, long eye lashes, and glossy lips.
In many of his videos, James Charles wears "soft glam" beauty looks.
Charles reviewed the Anastasia Beverly Hills Luminous Foundation for a video posted in August to his YouTube channel.
Whereas his natural look includes wispy eye brows and a freckled complexion, Charles used makeup during the video to create Instagram-style browns, longer eye lashes, and a full-coverage foundation base.

The Ordinary serums
Cult brand The Ordinary is a clear favourite among Insider employees, and the serums appear to be the biggest hit.
24-year-old Corina from Queens, New York City said: "I know in beauty circles it's well known but I was surprised to see that most people haven't heard about it (at least within my friend group).
"Makeup is fun but I've been trying to curate a skincare beauty regime and a brand like The Ordinary has an array of products (serums, sunscreens, vitamins, etc.) that are affordable and effective."
Talking about the brand's Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% serum, $5.90, Rosie, 29 from London, said: "I had comedonal acne for years and nothing could shift it (from hormones to antibiotics). Finally read about this product, and within 10 days it had made a very noticeable difference. I've been using it for about a year now and my skin is almost perfectly clear."
When it comes to mascara, Benefit can't be beat, with Benefit BADgal BANG! Volumizing Mascara ($25) and They're Real! Lengthening Mascara (also $25) being nominated as favourites across the board.
22-year-old New Yorker Shivani is a fan of the "super volumizing" BADgal BANG!, which "stays on for a super long time, and makes my eyelashes look great!"
Shana, 30 of New York, added: "It makes my lashes look (naturally) longer and thicker."
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
Insider employees agree with Khloe Kardashian — NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is truly the best, and its name came up in our survey a number of times.

- Business Insider 18:42November 8, 2019How contact lenses are made for movies and TV showsActors wear contacts to change their color pigment, to look older, create imperfections, or even transform into another species.
The art of designing and manufacturing movie contact lenses has long been a closely-guarded secret.
We spoke to Sinead Sweeney, one of the directors of Eyeworks for Film, about how they manufacture contact lenses for the movie industry.
Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Beverly Hills optometrist Reuben Greenspoon is credited with first using lenses to augment a character's appearance. Greenspoon was tasked with changing an actor's eyes from natural brown to blue in 1939's "Miracles for Sale." He created a blue ceramic material, which was glazed. The lens was attached and run through a kiln to fuse the glass and ceramic together, leaving a round aperture of 4 millimeters through which actor Henry Hull could see.
Since hydrogel soft contact lenses went into mass production in 1971, lenses with simple color pigments have become pretty accessible. But designing and painting bespoke lenses is still an art form.

- Business Insider 02:57November 6, 2019I tried Jeffree Star and Shane Dawson's new makeup that sold out almost immediately after it was launched, but it doesn't live up to the hypeCrystal Cox/Business Insider When Jeffree Star and Shane Dawson launched their highly-anticipated makeup collaboration on Friday, it almost instantly sold out.
As diehard fans crashed the Jeffree Star Cosmetics website, critics questioned why people were buying makeup from a YouTuber with little experience in the beauty industry.
I purchased the entire line — except for the Diet Shane lip balm, which was unavailable — at a very busy New Jersey Morphe store that same day.
Though I initially had high hopes, I was a bit disappointed. Many of the eye shadows felt chalky to me and I found most of the liquid-lipstick shades unwearable, though I did appreciate the unique packaging.
Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.
Eye-shadow palettes are the focal point of the Jeffree Star Cosmetics x Shane Dawson collaboration.
The $52 Conspiracy palette features 18 shades, while the $28 Mini-Controversy palette has nine.
In my opinion, the outer packaging of these palettes is enough to impress most shoppers. The larger palette is packaged in a black-and-white spiral-print box, while the smaller product is contained in a black box with a 3D static print.
Dawson and Star detailed the creative process behind creating these packages in their recent YouTube series.
The Conspiracy palette is arguably the most-anticipated beauty product created this year.
When Star and Dawson first revealed this palette in their YouTube series, I thought it looked really unique. My feelings stayed the same once I held it in my hands just days later. Its geometric box stands out from any palette I already own, and it's leather-like material feels high quality.
I was a little concerned that it would be too heavy to actually work with, but its weight hasn't been a problem since I've started using it.
I couldn't wait to dip my makeup brushes into the colorful shadows.
When I first opened the palette, I thought the shadows looked less vibrant than they do online. However, this actually made the product seem more appealing to me, as I initially thought it looked both colorful and wearable.
I particularly loved the stamps embedded into each eye shadow, and appreciate that they really represent Dawson's work on the palette.

As fans eagerly await a restock of the makeup, some people are reselling products from the collection for more than double the original retail prices.
Eye-shadow palettes are listed on eBay for prices between $130 and $400, while lipsticks are available for $10 to $550.

That same day, Dawson's mom, Teresa Yaw, visited a Morphe store in Burbank, California, to pick up the collection.
Because the shop was so crowded, Yaw couldn't find a parking space. To help her out, fans banded together to make sure she got a spot.

- Business Insider 00:54November 2, 2019I bought Jeffree Star and Shane Dawson's new makeup the day it was released at a Morphe store, and the scene was close to chaosAmanda Krause/Insider On Friday, I visited the Morphe store at the Westfield Garden State Plaza mall in Paramus, New Jersey, to try and purchase the Jeffree Star Cosmetics x Shane Dawson collaboration.
I arrived at the mall around 8:45 a.m., and was greeted by a line of approximately 100 people. The earliest shoppers arrived around 4 a.m.
I made it inside the store approximately 45 minutes after it opened, and was able to purchase every product aside from the Diet Shane lip balm, which the store didn't receive.
While everything went smoothly, I couldn't believe the mass amount of people who traveled from far away solely to purchase beauty products.
Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. On Friday, YouTubers Jeffree Star and Shane Dawson launched their highly-anticipated makeup collaboration.
Products became available online starting at 1 p.m. EST, though Morphe stores across the country also had the collection in stock. I decided to visit my local shop on Friday to try my hand at purchasing the entire collection.
Though the situation could have quickly turned to chaos, I ultimately had a pretty smooth shopping experience. Here's what it was like.I arrived at the Westfield Garden State Plaza Mall in Paramus, New Jersey, around 8:45 a.m.
When I first arrived, I assumed the mall was empty. Only a few cars were in the parking lot, and almost every light inside was turned off.
The only people inside the building seemed to be employees and "mall walkers," people who exercise by walking around empty shops.
As I approached the Morphe store, I immediately saw a giant line of people.
Upon first glance, I assumed there were maybe 60 people waiting to enter the store. Once I joined the line myself nearly 15 minutes later, I learned there were about 100 shoppers there.
At this point, we had approximately one hour to go until the Morphe store opened.
The first people in line arrived around 4 a.m. after attending a Halloween party.
Cassandra Runyon from Chester, New Jersey, visited the Morphe store wearing Jeffree Star Cosmetics makeup. As a huge fan of Shane Dawson, who she describes as a "fantastic YouTuber," Runyon wanted to make sure she wouldn't miss out on buying any of his products.
"No one's ever done anything like this — it's going to sell out," Runyon told Insider. "I was like, 'Okay I'm getting everything, my sister's getting everything, and I need to make sure I get it as fast as possible.'"
She also said that mall security didn't seem prepared for the large crowd.
"The mall security haven't been super friendly, but I also understand they weren't given a heads up as to how big this is," she said. "I'm sure if they were given a heads up, there'd be queues and stuff like that."

Here are the 21 best beauty products to buy during the Sephora Beauty Insider event. I've enjoyed Rouge status as a Sephora Beauty Insider for the past four years but I've yet to take advantage of its many benefits besides free shipping and early access to its big holiday sale. It's a great time to buy gifts for my family and friends, but mostly just for myself — it's the least I can do to keep up my Rouge status.
Starting November 1 through November 11, 2019, Sephora Rouge members can take up to 20% off online and in-stores. If you're shopping in-store, Rouge members can bring a friend who will also receive 20% off their purchase. Sephora VIB and Insider members can save 15% and 10% respectively starting November 7 through November 11.
Whether you're a Rouge, VIB, or Insider member, just use the code HOLIDAYSAVE during checkout and be on your merry way. Best of all, there's no limit to how many times the code can be used — none.
We've rounded up 21 great buys, but there are also tons of exclusive and limited-edition gift sets or even its monthly beauty box subscription to check out before the sale ends on November 11.
Here are the 21 best beauty, skin-care, and hair-care products to buy at Sephora's Beauty Insider sale: Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, $64, available at Sephora
This foundation has a huge following even just in my immediate circle of friends and here at Insider Picks. This weightless formula makes your skin look so smooth and silky without suffocating you. Everyone who's used it complains about the price, which is why this holiday is the perfect time to buy it.
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask, $20, available at Sephora
My lips are somehow always pretty dry and cracked, but this cult-favorite lip mask from Korean brand Laneige has helped make them so much softer. While the mask comes in a few different variations, nothing beats the scent (and flavor) of the original.
Hourglass Veil Translucent Setting Powder
Hourglass Veil Translucent Setting Powder, $46, available at Sephora
This translucent setting powder buffs out to an undetectable finish, so it's great for many skin tones. It's talc-free, which is a major bonus and leaves your face looking natural and airbrushed at the same time.

- Business Insider 22:32November 1, 2019A YouTuber with little-to-no makeup experience is about to rake in millions with his new beauty collection, showing the power of viral fameTwitter/@shanedawson YouTubers Shane Dawson and Jeffree Star are poised to make "millions" off their Conspiracy collection makeup launch on Friday, which is already inciting long lines at malls across the country.
Star commands a major makeup line, but Dawson is the other face of the project, driving its popularity with his mega-popular YouTube series – and Dawson isn't even a beauty guru. He self-admittedly doesn't really know how to do eyeshadow yet.
The makeup industry has evolved into a viral fame-driven moneymaker for influencers, and the Conspiracy collection is the prime example of what drives young audiences to buy expensive makeup products.
Dawson is capitalizing off his YouTube strategy that he's developed in the wake of major scandals involving the platform's biggest stars this past year.
Ultimately, it doesn't really make sense that consumers would shell out $52 to buy an unconventional eyeshadow palette spearheaded by someone who couldn't even use it himself. But on 2019 YouTube, it makes perfect sense.
Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. YouTubers Shane Dawson and Jeffree Star are poised to sell out of their makeup collaboration on Friday. There's no doubt that the launch will be record-breaking. Already, in malls across the US, long lines are creeping from Morphe storefronts.
The physical turnout for the sale – on a Friday morning, no less – will surely be outweighed by the sheer volume on online sales that will come pouring in. Dawson and Star were shooting to make "millions" off the Conspiracy collection, which includes a $52 eyeshadow palette, six $18 liquid lipstick shades, and $30 pig-shaped hand mirrors.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Behind the scenes with Shepard Smith — the Fox News star who just announced his resignation from the networkSee Also:An unauthorized video of Jeffrey Epstein's private island gave us the best look yet at its mysterious 'temple' and creepy statuesAustralian border agents seized almost 900 pounds of meth hidden in Sriracha hot sauce bottlesA Louisiana woman has been arrested for selling $20 fake doctor's notes to students trying to skip class

- Business Insider 00:02October 30, 2019The best concealerLaura Mercier Finding your ideal concealer shade is tricky, so we tested a bunch to find the best concealer you can buy. Laura Mercier's Secret Camouflage is our top pick because each compact comes with two colors you can mix and match to suit your skin tone and use all over your face if you want to. Finding the ideal concealer is a challenge, in part because everyone's definition of "the ideal concealer" is different. Some want full-coverage, others want something natural and undetectable. Or, maybe you want both in your collection to use for different occasions. To make matters worse, it's also really difficult to tell what a concealer is going to be like before you actually try it out in your routine. Even if you apply it in the store, you won't know how it plays with your other products or wears throughout the day until you take it home. Some concealers work beautifully applied with the fingers, while some don't blend properly unless you use a damp makeup sponge. Even a great concealer is going to take some trial and error. And that's not even getting into the issue of choosing the right shade for your skin tone.
I'm extremely picky about complexion products because I can't stand when you can see them sitting on my face. It's one reason why I hardly ever wear foundation. Concealer, on the other hand, is a daily staple of my routine. The best formulas can make you look airbrushed with very little product required. I put a bunch of highly rated concealers to the test over several weeks. This list features my top five favorites. Here are the best concealers to buy in 2019: Best concealer overall: Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage
Best dewy concealer: Glossier Stretch Concealer
Best drugstore brand concealer: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Concealer
Best full coverage concealer: Milk Makeup Flex Concealer
Best concealer for blurring: Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Concealer Updated 10/29/19 by Jada Wong: Updated prices, formatting, and links.The best concealer overall
Each shade of the popular Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage concealer comes with two colors to ensure you find your own perfect match.
Color matching your concealer to your skin tone is always a challenge. Who hasn't accidentally stepped out wearing a shade too dark or too light? Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage eliminates this issue in the most genius way. Each compact comes with two colors that can be mixed to create your perfect shade. The color-correcting element makes this a great pick for spot concealing blemishes and covering up dark circles. I find the formula a touch dry for under my eyes, but oilier skin types will love it. It works like a dream on pimples and sun spots due to the high coverage and long-lasting formula. The thicker consistency also ensures the concealer stays put all day, even on tricky spots like raised blemishes. Apply this with a smaller, flat brush to get the best targeted coverage. Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage appears on just about every list of concealer recommendations and is a popular choice for makeup artists. Recently, it's been featured on Harper's Bazaar, Vogue, Refinery29, and Best Products.
I hope the company expands the shade selection, especially on the darker end of the spectrum, but the mix-and-match feature makes it a good pick for a wide range of complexions. Pros: Two colors per shade for easy customization, non-comedogenic, oil-free, contains aloe & chamomile for soothing
Cons: Not a ton of dark shades
Buy Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage at Sephora for $35
The best dewy concealer
Glossier Stretch Concealer provides dewy, fresh, natural-looking coverage thanks to the micro-waxes and oils in the formula.
Glossier Stretch Concealer is my favorite beauty product of all time, the one I'd bring with me if I were stranded on a desert island but still needed to look awake for some reason. I use it almost every day, and for occasions as varied as grocery stores runs and weddings (including my own). I didn't list it as my top pick only because this product is not quite as versatile as the Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage. This is a very specific formula — dewy, emollient, and natural-looking, with medium coverage. If you're super oily or looking for full-coverage, this might not be the pick for you.
Glossier Stretch Concealer owes its lightweight, hydrating texture to several ingredients: beeswax and microcrystalline wax, avocado and jojoba oils, cocoa butter, and adaptable mineral pigments. There are currently five shades — Light, Medium, Dark, Deep, and Rich — but I find the product sheer and blendable enough that you should be able to find a close enough color match.
To apply, I warm it up in the pot with my ring finger and tap it onto the skin. I find the warmth of my fingertips helps the concealer sink in. Then I set with a tiny bit of powder to prevent creasing. This concealer is so lightweight that you can put it all over your face without it feeling heavy — I've heard quite a few people say they basically use this as foundation. The first time I put it on I was amazed at how quickly the product disappeared into my skin, becoming undetectable. It's especially amazing under the eyes for brightening and covering dark circles, and on areas of redness or discoloration. I'm far from the only person to sing Stretch Concealer's praises on the internet. It's recently been featured by Allure and British Vogue.
Pros: Weightless, medium coverage, dewy finish, hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, cruelty-free
Cons: Pills up when used over some thicker foundations, jar packaging
Buy Stretch Concealer at Glossier for $18
The best drugstore brand concealer
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Concealer has a unique hydrating core that provides creaseless coverage without the cakiness.
Concealer is often susceptible to caking up and looking awkwardly visible on the skin. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Concealer is infused with a hyaluronic acid core that prevents this phenomenon by moisturizing the skin while providing medium coverage.
This is another concealer that looks nearly undetectable once you blend it out. It's a touch more matte than Glossier Stretch Concealer, so if you want natural coverage without the shine, you'll probably love this stuff. I apply it straight from the tube onto my skin, then tap it in with my fingertips, going back in with a small brush for any tough-to-blend spots. Despite the unique hydrating core, this product is oil-free and non-comedogenic. It creases under the eyes so minimally that you probably don't need to set it with powder, though I usually do just for the extra sealing-in step. The packaging is very sleek — about the size of a slim lipstick bullet — so you can bring it on the go for touch-ups.
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Concealer is a popular drugstore recommendation, with recent mentions in Allure and Cosmopolitan. Pros: Hydrating, lightweight, oil-free, easily portable
Cons: Only comes in 5 shades

Our overall best lipstick is Urban Decay Cosmetics Vice Lipstick ($9.50) because of its extensive range of finishes and shades. Whether you want a matte, cream, or sheer finish in classic red, bright fuschia, or even deep plum, you'll find your new favorite (or five) with Urban Decay.
We also love lipstick from Revlon, Tom Ford, Charlotte Tilbury, and Marc Jacobs.

Now, colors literally span the rainbow from deep plum to classic red and even pastel yellow. Various finishes and formulas are available too — matte, sheer, hydrating, longwear, and more.

Urban Decay's Vice Lipstick collection spans 135 colors in your usual reds, pinks, purples, and neutrals, but also browns, greens, and blues, and six different finishes – mega matte, comfort matte, cream, metallized, sheer, and sheer shimmer.
Name me a more extensive lipstick collection. I'll wait.
With the exception of the sheer and sheer shimmer lipsticks, the colors are bold and pigmented, and even the matte and comfort mattes feel soft and creamy thanks to fruit oils, aloe, and vitamins C and E.
At $20, they aren't cheap by any definition, but they're reasonably priced given the quality of the lipsticks and packaging.
I don't know if I have a favorite shade as I switch every day, and sometimes, the same day, but I've really liked every one — as do more than 2,800 Ulta and Sephora shoppers, and more than 20,000 Influenster reviewers. — Jada Wong
Pros: Extensive range of colors and finishes, reasonably priced for the high quality, cruelty-free formula
Cons: Not every shade is available online or in stores
The best drugstore lipstick
For less than $10, Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipstick offers great color payoff and a moisturizing, almost balm-like finish that's comfortable to wear.
Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipstick has been holding it down in drugstores for decades, and it's easy to see why it's so iconic.
Not only is it easy to find if you've got a beauty emergency, but the formulas include avocado oil and vitamin E so they're soft, smooth, and creamy, and never cakey. Depending on the color and formula you choose, you might not even need lip balm.
With 82 colors in crème, pearl, sheer, and matte finishes, there are a lot of lipsticks to choose from. Similar to UD's Vice Collection, there are shades like navy blue and pastel purple, but most of the colors are really wearable.
More than 15,000 Influenster reviewers love this lipstick, with some saying they've been buying Revlon lipstick for years while others wonder why they waited so long to try it out. The overwhelming consensus is that the lipstick is super hydrating, has great wear, and is a solid drugstore buy for less than $10. — Jada Wong
Pros: Affordable, incredible selection of colors, moisturizing for lipstick, applies smoothly, easy to find in stores
The best luxury lipstick
The rich formula and chic packaging of Tom Ford Lip Color makes putting on lipstick in your car during rush hour feel like a dreamy escape.
Tom Ford has been designing clothes for decades and he's transferred that same design aesthetic to his lipstick collection.
At $55, these are not cheap and it'd be hard to stock up on them without resorting to microwavable meals for a month, but they're worth every dollar.
Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomilla flower oil make the lipsticks feel like, well, butter, and the color lasts for hours. The finish is more satin-y and creamy than matte and has a bit of shine that makes your face look more alive. All the colors are firmly in the red, pink, plum, and neutral families.
The packaging is lux and smart too — the bullet is embossed with "TF," the cap is magnetic and clasps tightly so you won't ruin your lipstick if it bursts open in your bag, and the square tube visually sets it apart from all the other lipsticks hanging out at the bottom of your purse. — Jada Wong
Pros: Good selection of wearable colors, feels creamy, good staying power

- Business Insider 18:32October 29, 2019The best foundation you can buyPicking the right foundation for your skin type, tone, and budget can be a real hassle, and there are a lot of factors that go into finding The One.
But after researching and testing a ton of highly-rated foundations, we found our top picks across several categories.
Our best overall foundation is the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation because its lightweight texture feels more like a serum than a thick cream, and the oil-free formula offers buildable coverage.
It's pricey at $42, but we've also chosen a great drugstore buy from Maybelline that costs less than $12.
See more: The best mascara Foundation in the right color and formula can help make your skin look like you slept 18 hours and drank 10 gallons of water. But the paradox is finding that perfect foundation.
No one needs foundation, but anyone who's ever even thought about it knows there's a bewildering array of formulas, shades, claims, prices, and more.
That's why we researched a ton of highly-rated foundations, tested them ourselves, and confirmed with shopper reviews to find the best foundations to help narrow down the endless options.
Here are the best foundations you can buy: Best foundation overall: Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation
Best drugstore foundation: Maybelline Urban Cover Foundation
Best luxury foundation: Dior BACKSTAGE Face & Body Foundation
Best longwear foundation: Fenty Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation
Best mineral foundation: Mineral Fusion Pressed Powder Foundation

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation is more like a fluid texture that goes on like, well, silk. It dries to a natural, almost satin-y finish, and looks incredibly realistic.
Unlike other foundation formulas that are creamy like moisturizers, Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation is thin and fluid, almost like a serum. It feels weightless, goes on incredibly smooth, and dries down to a satin-y finish that looks and feels like your skin.
That doesn't mean you're not getting coverage though — it's actually really buildable from sheer to medium, and you can easily mix it with moisturizer, sunscreen, or even a facial oil to customize your base.
Because the texture spreads so easily, I only need half a pump for full-face coverage — which is great for my wallet because at $42 for a 1-ounce bottle, Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation is definitely a splurge. Considering you'll only need a little for coverage, it'll last a seriously long time.
The formula includes what Armani calls "Micro-fil Technology" which helps blur the appearance of pores and lines for an airbrushed look. It sounds a little high-tech for a foundation, but I think it does help make my face look smoother.
Ever since the foundation launched in 2001, it's topped all the best-of lists. It was an Allure Best of Beauty winner back in 2008, Meghan Markle is a fan, and thousands of shoppers have written love letters. In fact, it holds a 4.5-star rating with more than 1,600 shopper reviews on Nordstrom, a 4.6-star rating with more than 2,500 reviews on Influenster, and a 4.3-star rating with nearly 3,000 Sephora reviews. All this is to say that it's an overwhelming crowd favorite.
There are 30 shades, which isn't an overwhelming amount compared to some of our other top picks which have 40, but it's not too limited either. The range was extended to 31 in 2018, but it looks like it's back to 30 as of publication time.
Pros: Thin fluid texture, buildable coverage, oil-free formula, 30 shades
Cons: Expensive, might not be moisturizing for those with dry skin, shade range isn't as extensive, doesn't have SPF
The best drugstore foundation
For less than $12, Maybelline Urban Cover Foundation offers a full-coverage base with SPF 50 and protective antioxidants.
In my quest to debunk all the myths you've heard about drugstore makeup, one of my recent go-to foundations is Maybelline Urban Cover Foundation. In fact, it's sitting right on my desk as I write this review.
The squeeze tube is easier to use (and far safer to commute with) than a glass pump bottle, and the formula features SPF 50, antioxidants to protect against environmental stressors like pollution (hence the name "Urban Cover"), and niacinamide to strengthen your skin. Texture-wise, it feels like a traditional foundation so it's slightly creamy, and dries down to a natural finish. Even though it offers full coverage, it doesn't look cakey or make me look like a mannequin.
One of the biggest problems with shopping for drugstore foundation (or foundation, for that matter) is trying to find the right shade for your skin. Maybelline has a helpful foundation finder tool on its site where you'd answer a few questions about coverage and formula, upload a selfie, and get a match. There's still a bit of trial and error this way, but at least you'll have a more narrow focus when you're shopping for your shade.
It holds a 4.3-star rating on Target with more than 300 reviews, and a 4.2 with more than 370 reviews on Influenster. The foundation has only been around for a few months so the low amount of reviews is understandable; shoppers are generally impressed with the quality, coverage, and protection that the drugstore find offers.
Pros: Affordable, lightweight, antioxidants help prevent free radical damage, SPF 50, 16 shades
Cons: Limited shade range, hard to find ideal shade in drugstores
The best luxury foundation
Dior BACKSTAGE Face & Body Foundation is basically luxury in a bottle — but it does come with a price tag to match.
While Dior BACKSTAGE Face & Body Foundation is technically cheaper than Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, it earns our top luxury pick because it was inspired by fashion shows and offers coverage for your face and body. If you have concerns about matching your foundation to your neck and shoulders (especially in the summer), this can be a great solution.
The 1.6-ounce bottle offers more product than most other formulas since you can use it on your body, and the squeeze bottle has a small tip that dispenses just a little bit of product so you won't go overboard.
Since this foundation can be used all over your body, it's formulated to be waterproof and sweat-resistant. The foundation comes in 40 shades with medium to buildable coverage and a natural matte finish — so basically, it'll look like skin.
It holds a 4.3-star rating on Sephora with more than 1,700 reviews and 86% of them saying they'd recommend it to a friend. It also has an impressive 4.4-star rating with more than 1,500 Influenster reviews, and many say that the price is justified by the amount of product you get as well as the natural finish and airbrushed effect.
Pros: Buildable coverage, can be used on face and body, natural matte finish, waterproof and sweat-resistant, squeeze bottle prevents excess product

- Business Insider 23:02October 22, 2019The best makeup mirrors you can buyShutterstock You don't have to do your makeup in bad lighting.
The Conair Double-Sided Lighted Makeup Mirror is our top makeup mirror pick for its sleek, attractive design and simple functionality. It does what you need it to do, without any complicated extras. Getting a dedicated makeup mirror has to be one of the top five decisions I've ever made. Or, rather, that my mom made for me, since she bought me one, presumably after getting sick of hearing me endlessly complain that my bedroom was too dark for effectively drawing on eyeliner. Thanks, mom!
Now that I've gone over to the light (up mirror) side, I will not be turning back, and I suggest you follow my lead. It's a real getting ready game-changer, especially if your living quarters leave much to be desired as far as lighting goes. Makeup mirrors exist on a spectrum from very basic to rather high-tech, but most of the best ones have lighting and magnification options that make creating the perfect smokey eye or chiseled contour a total breeze.
If you don't care about zooming in close enough to see every single pore on the surface of your face, you can probably opt for a simpler design, while people who love elaborate makeup looks might want a model with a few additional features.
We've done the research to find the best makeup mirrors that beauty experts and shoppers agree are the best money can buy.
Here are the best makeup mirrors you can buy: Best makeup mirror overall: Conair Double-Sided Lighted Makeup Mirror
Best tri-fold makeup mirror: Jerdon Tri-Fold Two-Sided Makeup Mirror
Best on-the-go makeup mirror: HotLife LED Lighted Makeup Mirror
Best makeup mirror for techies: iHome Reflect iCVBT2 Adjustable Vanity Mirror
Best makeup mirror for true makeup aficionados: Simplehuman Sensor Mirror Pro Updated on 10/22/2019 by Remi Rosmarin: Updated formatting, links, and prices.
The best makeup mirror overall
The Conair Double-Sided Lighted Makeup Mirror is perfect for your everyday makeup needs, with its two-sided mirror encircled by a bright light.
Conair's Double-Sided Lighted Makeup Mirror is ideal for a fan of the Classics. It's like the peanut butter and jelly of makeup mirrors — nothing over-the-top, but perfectly functional and satisfying. It does the job, and it does the job well, but without all the bells and whistles some of the more tech-savvy versions offer.
As the name suggests, this mirror is double-sided, with one side featuring a 7x magnification that allows you get to real intimate with your epidermis. I personally find the magnification on these kinds of mirrors most helpful for tweezing my eyebrows and reminding me of my own mortality by pointing out fine lines I didn't know I had. Best Products named the Conair mirror their number one pick for best lighted mirror. It's also a fan-favorite, with more than 2,000 five-star reviews on Amazon. One reviewer writes, "Awesome mirror! It's just the right size, and the lighting is perfect. Having lighting on both sides is great." The mirror comes in several finishes, including "oiled bronze" and "polished chrome," and the oval shape gives it a vintage vibe that makes it a little prettier than some of the other options in our guide. Buyers' main complaint seems to be about the longevity of the light itself, which is powered by a bulb rather than a battery. Pros: Nice vintage design, lights on both sides, 7x magnification, comes in several finishes
Cons: Requires a bulb, only has one light intensity
Buy the Conair Double-Sided Lighted Makeup Mirror on Amazon for $37 to $134
The best tri-fold makeup mirror
The Jerdon Tri-Fold Two-Sided Makeup Mirror shows your makeup in different lighting so you can avoid any awkward foundation-blending mishaps.
In my past life as an office worker, I often left the house feeling pretty good about my face situation, only to be greeted on my first trip to the office bathroom by a raccoon-eyed swamp creature in the mirror. If you found yourself nodding along in recognition as you read that last sentence, the Jerdon Tri-Fold Two-Sided Makeup Mirror might be for you.
With four adjustable settings — daytime, nighttime, home, and office — you can see your makeup in all sorts of lighting, it's perfect for the woman who is always bouncing from the work to spin class to drinks with friends. The tri-fold mirror design allows you to look at your face from every angle, so you can avoid that moment when you look in the mirror and realize you've been walking around with unblended bronzer for five hours. But just don't take my word for it. New York Magazine's The Strategist named the Jerdon Tri-Fold Two-Sided Makeup Mirror one of the best vanity mirrors on Amazon, where it currently boasts a 4.2-star rating based on 2,500 reviews. Other notable features of the mirror include an electrical outlet for plugging in devices and an adjustable base that lets you find the perfect height.
Pros: Four different light settings for various environments, panoramic tri-fold mirror, highly customizable Cons: Clunky design, not as attractive as other options Buy the Jerdon Tri-Fold Two-Sided Makeup Mirror on Amazon for $34
The best on-the-go makeup mirror
The HotLife LED Lighted Makeup Mirror is perfect for late sleepers who commute first and get ready later.
Do you hit snooze until the last possible second in the morning? The HotLife LED Lighted Makeup Mirror is a great pick for anyone who applies their makeup after they get to work. After all, you don't want to rely on fluorescent office lights alone to help you blend your eye shadow.
This mirror comes recommended by The Cut's Ashley Weatherford, who describes its 5 x 3.3 x 0.4-inch size as "thinner than a CD case and barely the size of your hand." This mirror is perfect for tossing in your purse, briefcase, filing cabinet, or glove compartment. It also folds in half for easy portability. The HotLife LED Lighted Makeup Mirror is clearly designed to go places.
Features-wise, it's pretty bare bones. You get eight LED lights that you can dim and two mirrors, one with 2x magnification. The compact also comes with four batteries, so you can get to using it immediately. If that's all you need, this is a solid and affordable choice, but if you want something a bit more in-depth, it probably won't be the right fit. Pros: Perfect for travel or carrying on-the-go, regular and magnified mirror options, affordable, comes with batteries (plus an extra set)
Cons: Doesn't have many additional features

- Business Insider 20:20October 22, 2019The best natural makeupWhen it comes to natural makeup, it's hard to know which brands you can actually trust.
Many products claim to be natural but contain potentially harmful or irritating synthetic ingredients.
For a high-performance makeup range that's formulated from natural, organic, and non-toxic ingredients, Jane Iredale is our top pick. Natural beauty has exploded in the past few years. Everyone is talking about "clean beauty" as people have become more aware of the potentially adverse effects of certain synthetic chemicals that are often found in makeup. The more careful people become about what they put on their skin, the more popular natural makeup has become.
The biggest difference between "natural" and "synthetic" (or traditional) makeup is the ingredients. Most synthetic makeup products contain chemicals like parabens, phthalates, and sulfates, which can irritate skin. But unfortunately, due to lack of regulation in the US beauty industry, many products labeled "natural" actually still contain these chemicals. Even when doing our research, we found it wasn't always easy to get definitive answers on exactly what ingredients were used by some brands. The one thing that is more defined is that products cannot be labeled "organic" unless they're USDA Organic-certified, which means formulated with at least 95% organic ingredients that were grown and produced without synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, hormones, or antibiotics, and formulated without GMOs, toxic chemicals, parabens, synthetic fragrances, or nanoparticles. However, in California products can be labeled "organic" if they are made with just 70% organic ingredients. The ingredients list of makeup products can be overwhelming, and it's often in very small print. An easy way to check product safety is to visit the EWG Skin Deep Cosmetics Database and verify the safety ratings of more than 73,000 beauty products.
One of the biggest concerns with natural makeup has been poor quality and effectiveness. However, thanks to the increase in shopper demand, there's a new generation of makeup brands with bigger and better ranges, and highly effective products formulated with safe and natural ingredients. I was initially very skeptical about how good natural makeup could be, but after reading about irritating ingredients found in regular makeup and testing a wide range of natural products myself, I've converted. With our opinions backed up by beauty experts and buyers, we've come up with the best natural makeup brands you can trust.
Here are the best natural makeup you can buy: Best natural makeup brand overall: Jane Iredale
Best non-toxic makeup brand: RMS Beauty
Best cruelty-free makeup brand: Mineral Fusion
Best organic makeup brand: Ilia Beauty
Best affordable natural makeup brand: Burt's Bees Updated on 10/22/2019 by Mara Leighton: Updated prices and formatting. We are currently testing new products, so we'll update this guide soon.The best natural makeup brand overall
Jane Iredale's makeup is packed with natural, organic, and non-toxic ingredients, and the products deliver exceptional results.
Jane Iredale is a line of mineral makeup formulated with high quality, natural ingredients designed to nourish the skin and enhance its natural beauty. The company is known for its multitasking products and wearable shades. The products are free of perfume, alcohol, synthetic chemicals, and artificial dyes. The makeup is also cruelty-free.
We tested the entire makeup line to see if it lived up to the hype, and the Amazing Base Loose Mineral Powder ($46) is now one of my favorite foundations. This multitasking product comes in 14 shades and works as a foundation, concealer, and sunscreen with SPF 20, plus it soothes your skin and is water-resistant. I loved the coverage and it didn't irritate my sensitive skin.
The Longest Lash Mascara ($35) comes in a squeezable tube and adds volume and length. The Eyeliner Pencil ($17) comes in seven wearable colors and glides on smoothly.
The Pure Moist Lipstick ($25) is also amazing and has a subtle fruit scent. Available in 27 colors, it combines powerful pigments with nourishing natural oils like avocado and jojoba and fruit extracts like pomegranate. I love the PurePressed Blush ($30), a mineral blush that comes in 13 gorgeous colors and has great staying power.
It's not just us who think Jane Iredale products are amazing. The makeup line gets great praise on The Good Trade, The Trendspotter, and Natural Living Ideas. The makeup is hugely popular with Amazon shoppers and Nordstrom buyers too based on the high number of reviews on many products.
Pros: Free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates, oil-free, certified cruelty-free, vegan, suitable for sensitive skin, wide range of products and makeup shades
The best non-toxic makeup brand
For non-toxic, food-grade makeup that delivers great results, RMS Beauty is a great pick.
RMS Beauty is a clean beauty brand that prides itself on the simplicity of its makeup products. The makeup is formulated with unrefined raw, food-grade, and organic ingredients, and it's free of toxic chemicals and artificial preservatives. It also bears the "Clean at Sephora" seal which means products are made without certain ingredients. You can see the full list of Clean products here.
The award-winning "Un" Cover-Up Concealer/Foundation ($36) can be used — you guessed it — as a light foundation or concealer, and it comes in 16 shades. It evened out my skin tone well. Makeup artists and celebrities swear by the Living Luminizer ($38), and I agree that it's a must-have for your makeup bag.
The Volumizing Mascara ($28) is good for sensitive eyes. Some shoppers said that it doesn't give much volume, but I added a couple more coats and it built up nicely.
The Wild With Desire Lipstick ($28) is also great and comes in 10 beautiful shades. I was impressed with the high color from the rich pigments. For lips and cheeks, the Lip2Cheek ($36), which is available in nine shades ranging from Blush Nude to Deep Berry, is also very popular. I love the natural effect it produces.
In addition to be being highly rated by She Knows, Refinery29, and Allure, Sephora shoppers give the brand glowing reviews across the board.
Pros: Non-toxic, cruelty-free, gluten-free, no artificial preservatives, GMO, "Clean at Sephora" seal
Cons: Pricey, mascara might not be as voluminous as expected
The best cruelty-free makeup brand
For a fabulous, mid-priced makeup line that is certified cruelty-free and non-toxic, Mineral Fusion is hard to beat.
Mineral Fusion combines pharmaceutical grade minerals, antioxidants, natural ingredients, and the latest technologies to provide makeup that is safe, protective, and effective. All the products are Leaping Bunny-certified, which means they're cruelty-free. They are also free from parabens, gluten, artificial colors, phthalates, and other harsh ingredients.
The highly-rated Pressed Powder Foundation ($22.21) comes in 15 shades and is amazing. You can build it up where you want more coverage, and it has a matte finish. I love the Concealer ($23.71), a creamy duo that comes in four color options and is great for blemishes and dark under-eye circles. The Lengthening Mascara ($15.48) is a rich, gentle formula that made my lashes look longer and fuller. The Eye Liner ($13.84) was soft and easy to apply. The Mineral Fusion Lip Stick ($13.53) is now my new favorite lipstick. It comes in 15 colors and contains vitamin E and fruit oils to moisturize. There is also a fabulous 3-in-1 Color Stick ($15.51) for cheeks, eyes, and lips that comes in four shades. My favorite shade is Terra Cotta.
Mineral Fusion is rated the top mineral makeup brand on Best Reviews and is featured on Project Grace as a great cruelty-free brand, though it does point out the brand's limited range of colors. Shades are wearable and pretty, but not the most exciting as there aren't any bold blues or bright purples to play with.
Pros: Certified cruelty-free, vegan, gluten-free, made with non-toxic ingredients, great for all skin types
Cons: Can be hard to find in stores

- Business Insider 20:01October 22, 2019The best anti-aging foundationThere's no way to stop the skin from aging, but the right foundation can help address the unique concerns associated with aging skin like fine lines, dark spots, dullness, and less elasticity.
Our favorite anti-aging foundation is IT Cosmetic's Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream With SPF 50+, but there are more options to consider before you buy.
You should also check out our guide to the best anti-aging serums you can buy. There's no product that will keep us from aging (or let us travel back in time to convince ourselves to wear more sunscreen), but there are products made specifically for slowing down the process and mitigating the related skin concerns. In addition to anti-aging serums and moisturizers, you can get some great foundations that target the signs of aging and help skin feel and appear tighter and more luminous.
As you get older and your skin changes, some foundations may make fine lines and wrinkles look more obvious than they are. If you're trying to avoid that, the rule of thumb is to search for lightweight formulas that don't dry out the skin, and to avoid powders that have a tendency to settle into lines and make them appear more defined.
Like most products that claim to be anti-aging, there are plenty of anti-aging foundations on the market, but they vary in effectiveness. A good one will ideally smooth skin texture, hide imperfections, disguise fine lines and wrinkles, and give you a glowing complexion. Anti-aging foundations use ingredients such as antioxidants, hydrators, peptides, and collagen boosters. Most professional makeup artists also agree that foundations with a luminous finish are best for aging skin. I've tested many different anti-aging foundations and researched hundreds of buyer and expert reviews to come up with the best ones you can buy. Whether you are starting to see fine lines that you'd like to hide or have more mature skin that needs extra TLC, there's something here for everyone.
Here is the best anti-aging foundation you can buy: Best overall: IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ Best luxury: Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation
Best budget: CoverGirl Advanced Radiance Age-Defying Foundation
Best natural option: Ilia True Skin Serum Foundation
Best for acne-prone skin: Chantecaille Future Skin Updated on 10/21/2019 by Mara Leighton: Updated prices, formatting, and copy. Added a few related links. The best anti-aging foundation overall
The IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ is an all-in-one CC cream that provides full coverage like a foundation and is packed with powerful anti-aging ingredients.
IT Cosmetics' award-winning CC+ cream acts as an anti-aging serum, moisturizer, color corrector, primer, and concealer. It contains a potent mix of anti-aging ingredients, including hydrolyzed collagen, peptides, niacin, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants. It has an SPF of 50, so the cream also provides superb sun protection. The CC cream comes in twelve shades ranging from Fair to Deep.
In testing, the creamy formula felt lightweight and my skin looked amazing after applying it, plus it smelled good, too. It provided more coverage than your usual CC cream and easily covered up any imperfections and fine lines. I was impressed that my sensitive skin didn't react at all. I also love that it has a high SPF thanks to the Titanium Oxide and Zinc Oxide, so although it's a great product to use year-round, it's perfect for the summer. You only need to use a really small amount to get full coverage.
It's not just me that loves the IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream. Beauty junkies, editors, and experts rave about it. It's an Allure Readers' Choice winner, is highly rated on Byrdie, and gets an amazing 4.3 out of 5 based on over 13,900 Ulta reviews. One delighted customer said, "It's so light weight but still covers everything. Literally amazing!"
I also recommend the IT Bye Under Eye Anti-Aging Concealer, which works wonders for dark circles and fine lines, and is often called "sleep in a bottle."
We also have a full review of the IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream in case you need some additional perspective.
Pros: Great multi-tasker, suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin, great for all ages, provides medium to full coverage, SPF 50, formulated without parabens, phthalates and sulfates, cruelty-free
Cons: Fewer shades than some other brands, the coverage could be too heavy for some
The best luxury anti-aging foundation
The Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation smoothes fine lines and wrinkles, evens skin tone, and makes your skin glow.
Bobbi Brown's anti-aging foundation has all the benefits of a serum combined with the correcting coverage of a foundation. It also has an SPF of 40, so you can even skip the sunscreen.
It is formulated with active botanical ingredients such as lychee, bamboo grass, and cordyceps fungi, all designed to deliver a smoother, firmer, and brighter look, while ultra-fine pigments cover imperfections without settling into fine lines. The foundation comes in 16 shades with warm, neutral, and cool undertones.
Firstly the black glass bottle is gorgeous. It smells fresh and clean and is easy to apply. I have fair to medium skin coloring and used Cool Beige. When I first put it on my face, I immediately saw a difference. My skin really glowed thanks to the luminous formula. My wrinkles and fine lines were much less visible, too. I think it makes me look much younger when I wear it. Okay, so it is expensive, but it is worth splashing out on. You only need a small amount so it will last and last.
Don't just take my word for it, the Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation is highly rated by Vogue and Stylecaster. One happy Blue Mercury shopper said, "This foundation is perfect for my skin and makes my face feel like I am 20." However, some buyers have said that the dropper is messy.
Pros: Instant results, suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin, has an SPF of 40
Cons: Expensive but a little goes a long way, the dropper can be messy
The best budget anti-aging foundation
If you're looking for an effective anti-aging foundation that's affordable, the CoverGirl Advanced Radiance Age-Defying Foundation is a winner.
CoverGirl Advanced Radiance Age-Defying Foundation is a lightweight liquid formula that contains Olay's amino-peptide complex and is designed to restore your skin's youthful appearance. It provides up to eight hours of continuous moisture and limited sun protection with an SPF of 10. The foundation is available in six colors ranging from light to deep.
If you skimp on price, you often don't get less effective products, but in testing, this foundation blended easily, provided medium coverage, and my fine lines seemed less visible. My skin also looked healthier, although the foundation wore off more quickly than some of the other brands I tested. I was still impressed with the results given that it is so much cheaper than the others I tried.
Covergirl's foundation is one of Total Beauty's best drugstore foundations and Walmart reviewers give it an average of 4.3 of 5, with one happy customer saying, "The texture of this makeup makes it almost "float," covering pores and wrinkles under my eyes instead of sinking into them and making them more obvious."
Pros: SPF 10, great price, good coverage, disguised fine lines
Cons: Fewer shades than some other brands, may not be suitable if you have sensitive, oily or blemish-prone skin

- Business Insider 18:54October 22, 2019The best eye makeup remover you can buyEye makeup is notoriously stubborn and difficult to remove, so you need a good, safe makeup remover in your arsenal.
The Garnier SkinActive Waterproof Micellar Cleansing Water is our top pick because it is a gentle but powerful one-step eye makeup remover that removes even the heaviest eye makeup easily. Look, we get it. Sometimes you're totally exhausted and the thought of washing your eye makeup off before hitting the sheets is a lot. But it's probably the most important step in your daily skincare routine, both for the sake of the delicate skin around your eyes and the longevity of your pillowcases.
That's why we researched and tested some of the most popular ophthalmologist-approved eye makeup removers on the market, and narrowed them down to the best of the best. Some important criteria: the products had to be gentle, yet powerful enough to remove eye makeup without tugging the skin (a major cause of fine lines and wrinkles); they couldn't include simple alcohols, referred to as isopropyl and ethanol, which are notoriously drying; and added fragrance was a no-go.
And while finding the best eye makeup remover for your skin type and beauty routine is 75% of the battle, the application technique is also super important. Pro tip: soak a cotton pad with liquid eye makeup remover and hold it against each eye for a few seconds before gently wiping it across your skin. This gives the formula time to loosen your makeup. With all this in mind, it's time to find your new go-to eye makeup remover.
Here are the best eye makeup removers you can buy: Best remover overall: Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water
Best remover pads: Burt's Bees Eye Makeup Remover Pads
Best remover for dramatic makeup: Chanel Démaquillant Yeux Intense Eye Makeup Remover
Best remover for sensitive eyes: Klorane Soothing Makeup Remover
Best remover for eyelash extensions: Neutrogena Oil Free Gentle Eye Makeup Remover

Garnier SkinActive Waterproof Micellar Cleansing Water is quick, effective, and even works on waterproof mascara.
Our top pick, an all-in-one, no-rinse makeup remover that can be used on the face and lips too, is actually found in drugstores. It performs as well as — if not better than — more expensive brands and makes removing eye makeup including waterproof mascara a breeze.
Garnier SkinActive Waterproof Micellar Cleansing Water is formulated with micelles. Although it has been around for a while, micellar water is the latest trend in makeup removers. It is made up of tiny balls of cleansing oil molecules known as micelles that act like magnets, lifting away dirt, oil, and makeup without harsh rubbing, leaving skin clean and refreshed without over-drying.
The multi-purpose product can also be used as a facial wash, makeup remover, and moisturizer. This makes it the ideal addition to your beauty arsenal when you're on the go or on vacation. It comes in a handy travel size, too. In testing, all my eye makeup, including my waterproof mascara, came off in just three swipes of a cotton pad. There was no need to rinse and no greasy residue. If like me, you have zero patience for products that don't provide instant results you'll love this one-step eye makeup remover. It's not just me who loves Garnier SkinActive Waterproof Micellar Cleansing Water as an eye makeup remover, beauty junkies, editors and experts swear by it. It is highly rated on Rank and Style and Byrdie, plus Amazon reviewers give it a big thumbs up.
Although I prefer the waterproof version for removing my eye makeup, it comes in a non-waterproof version, too. Pros: No-rinse formula, suitable for eyes, lips, and face, free from sulfates, parabens, and phthalates, fragrance-free, no greasy residue, suitable for all skin types even sensitive skin, effective on heavy makeup and waterproof mascara
The best eye makeup remover pads
For an easy way to remove your eye makeup at home or on the go, try Burt's Bees Eye Makeup Remover Pads.
These travel-friendly eye makeup remover pads are gentle but effective. They're also very affordable. Burt's Bees Eye Makeup Remover Pads are designed specifically for eyes and are shaped to reach every corner. The moisturizing, no-rinse formula contains 99.5% natural ingredients including kiwi extract to hydrate and nourish the skin around the eyes without leaving an oily residue. There are no harsh chemicals that might irritate your eyes and the pads are fragrance-free. This makes the pads ideal for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
In testing, I found that my eye makeup came off easily. The pads were fairly thick, well saturated, and the liquid absorbed into my skin without leaving a greasy residue. However, they didn't work as well on waterproof mascara. Still, these pads are a great beauty accessory when you're traveling or on the go.
I'm not the only one who thinks Burt's Bees Eye Makeup Remover Pads are wonderful. They are recommended by sites such as Byrdie and Total Beauty, and get great reviews on Walmart, with one happy customer saying, "I've had a hard time finding an eye makeup remover that doesn't irritate my highly sensitive eyes AND removes all the makeup easily...this stuff does it all!"
Pros: Suitable for sensitive eyes, safe for contact lens wearers, no need to rinse, No added fragrance, free of parabens, phthalates, and SLS, great for travel
Cons: Not as effective on waterproof mascara
The best for dramatic makeup
If you're looking for a superior eye makeup remover that erases every trace of eyeliner, eye shadow, and even waterproof mascara, Chanel Démaquillant Yeux Intense Gentle Bi-phase Eye Makeup Remover is the crème-de-la-crème.
Chanel's luxury eye makeup remover is a favorite with celebrities and makeup artists alike. The dual-phase formula is activated by shaking the bottle. Whereas many bi-phase eye makeup removers are silicon-based, this one is oil-based.
The light blue lower phase contains cornflower extract and rose extract to soothe and soften the vulnerable eye area. Oils in the transparent upper layer erase all types of makeup. As it's so gentle, Chanel Démaquillant Yeux Bi-Phase Eye Makeup Remover is suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. In testing, after soaking a cotton pad with the liquid, it quickly erased all my heavy eye makeup and even my waterproof mascara, and it felt nice and refreshing on my skin. I used one side to remove my eye makeup and the other to remove the oily residue and any last traces of makeup. You do need to rinse it off with warm water. A little goes a long way and this remover is definitely worth the money.
Chanel Demaquillant Yeux Bi-Phase Eye Makeup Remover is highly recommended by sites such as Harpers Bazaar and Rank and Style. NYC-based makeup artist Andrew Sotomayor told Instyle he loves this product because it removes waterproof mascara without leaving a greasy residue behind.
Pros: Suitable for all skin types, good for sensitive eyes, fragrance-free, great for heavy makeup and waterproof mascara
Cons: Expensive, but you only need to use a small amount, need to rinse
