Most women have a beauty bag (or three) filled with a variety of makeup and skincare potions, but have you covered your bases with the essentials? With so many products circulating the market, we decided to take a tip from 7 stylish women who know a thing or two about beauty products to find out which ones they can’t live without. Here, their must-have picks.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Sunless Tanner
"I’m a big fan of self-tanning because I’m often shooting lingerie, and I always feel great with a little bit of color. Spray tanning is tricky but if you get a good product and spend 20 minutes concentrating on it, you can do it yourself.
Miranda Kerr, Face Mask
“Twice a week I take an extra few minutes to exfoliate and apply a mask."
Cassandra Huysentruyt Grey, Highlighter
"Every woman should own a great highlighter. Life is better with cheekbones."
Monique Lhuillier, Red Lipstick
"I actually think a bright red lip is an instant mood-changer and I always feel extra glamorous when I have it on.”
Jessica Alba, Chemical-Free Nail Polish
“When buying nail polish I avoid brands that contain the “toxic trio”—formaldehyde, toluene, and dibutyl phthalate or DBP."
Amber Valletta, Mascara & Eyebrow Gel
“I can't live without mascara and eyebrow gel.”
Aerin Lauder, Sunscreen
"To quote something my grandmother used to say, 'You only have one face, take care of it'. Skincare is so important. I always wear sunscreen and I invest in high-quality products that help protect and repair my skin.”
