Share

From the face cleanser we can’t live without to a universally-flattering red lipstick and flawless foundation, browse Team Zoe’s top beauty picks from 2013!

Flawless Foundation

"I received a sample of this powder foundation and have been hooked ever since. It leaves your skin with a matte, airbrushed look that lasts all day." - Jennifer Ash, Editorial Assistant

Effective Eye Cream

"I love this eye cream - it leaves my skin feeling hydrated and refreshed." - Lindsay Pogemiller, Styling Associate

Major Mascara

"Best mascara on the market! It is long-lasting and doesn't smudge. I love that it gives me length and volume with just a sweep or two so that I don't have to worry about clumps or spider eyes." - Lauren Blakely, Product Development Manager

Standout Sunscreen

"I'm super diligent about wearing sunscreen on my face every day, and this one goes on so smoothly that it's perfect to wear underneath your makeup. It literally disappears into your skin." - Marisa Runyon, Director of Brand Partnerships

Lustworthy Liner

"My fave new beauty product is NYX The Curve liquid liner; it is SO easy to use and maneuver, goes on perfectly smooth and doesn't rub off or smudge at all! It is so affordable and compact too!" - Pamela Glassman, Director of Business Development

Game-Changing Cleansing Oil

"This face oil actually gets me excited to wash my face at night. Since the first time I used it, I have never looked back." - Jessica Amento

Reddest Lipstick

"The prettiest red out there. I discovered it on accident when it was sent to the office and I haven't worn another red since. It complements basically every skin tone." - Christian David, Graphic Designer

Miraculous Moisturizer

"I had my first facial a couple of weeks ago after Rodger told us about Skin Laundry, and I loved it. 15 minutes in and out and my skin felt so clean and healthy and glowed. Since then, I've been using their daily moisturizer and am completely obsessed - a little bit goes a long way and it's super hydrating without being heavy." - Kendall Cohan, Product Development Associate

Praiseworthy Pencil Liner

"I don't think I could ever live without this eyeliner - it stays on forever! Charlotte is a true genius." - Mandana Dayani, Vice President

Powerful Peel

"I'm obsessed with this at-home Alpha Beta Peel by Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare. I purchased it at a spa after having a facial and it has transformed my skin. I use it every 3 or 4 days before moisturizing in the evening and it leaves my skin so soft and smooth!" - Andrea Sexton, Digital Sales Director

Luscious Lipstick

"One of my favorite finds this year is BeautyCounter's Lip Sheer in Petal. The lipstick glides on like lip balm while adding the perfect amount of color for an everyday look. I'm trying be more conscious about the ingredients in my cosmetics, so I was drawn to the BeautyCounter mission. I appreciate their transparency and mission to create better, healthier products." - Nicole Cottral, Account Manager

Hero Honey Mask

"My facialist talked me into whipping up an egg and honey mask to use every night at home, and it seriously changed my skin in a week. I usually sleep in it, and wake up to ridiculously smooth skin and a more even complexion. When I'm away from the kitchen, I use Bee Yummy Face Lift or Fresh's Crème Ancienne Ultimate Nourishing Honey Mask to get a similar effect." - Jaclyn Decell, Community Manager
