Covergirl Bombshell Volume by LashBlast Mascara
Why: Volume and intensity come together in this mascara. Side one allows you to volumize, while side two intensifies and seals for an all-day finish. ($8.99) at Target.


Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream
Why: This lightweight moisturizer is formulated with Fresh’s Super 7 Complex; it defends against wrinkles, improves elasticity, and seals in moisture for that 24/7 glow. ($65) at Sephora.


Cynthia Rowley Beauty Creamy Lip Stain in Heartthrob
Why: Perfect for everyday wear, this stain from Cynthia Rowley, offered exclusively through Birchbox, is the perfect amount of hue without being sticky. It combines moisture with the ultra-long wear of a stain. ($20) at Birchbox.


Anastasia Dipbrow
Why: Brows take a lot of maintenance, so that’s why we love this all-in-one product from Anastasia Beverly Hills. This waterproof pomade provides pigment, sculpture, and shading magic all day long. ($18) at Ulta.


Tresemmé Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo
Why: Second-day hair has never looked better than with the help of this dry shampoo. Made with mineral clay and citrus, it revives limp hair by removing excess oil and adding volume and texture. ($4.99) at Target.


LuRu Home Snow Cone Pouch. ($22) In Watermelon Sugar.
