CULT-BEAUTY DETAILS: CONCEALER + GLOW WAND DUO (SHADE 22N) | CONCEALER BRUSH | LIP RESCUE DUO | FAKE AWAKE EYE HIGHLIGHT | EYESHADOW SET | MASCARA | CHEEK PALETTE | EYELINER DUO SET |

The cult-beauty products you should be buying in pairs and why… Spoiler alert – they are all under $25.

TWO-FOR-YOU

Shape Tape Concealer: Does anyone still only use one shade of concealer? Once you find your favorite (the majority of beauty gurus agree that it’s this one), don’t buy just 1! Get 1 in your ‘winter’ concealer shade and a 2nd in your ‘tan’ tone. There’s nothing worse that a too dark or too light concealer. I’ve been using the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer for years – it’s amazing coverage and lasts all day, so you’re not worrying about touching up. It has more of a matte finish and a full coverage look. Another excuse to buy 2 – they are selling the travel-size concealer in a duo with the glow wand so it’s just $15 ($20 value). I used the glow wand ‘Aglow’ this look with the concealer light medium sand. Also their concealer brush is worth the hype. It’s 100% the best one I’ve had to date.

STOCK UP FOR STOCKING STUFFERS

Quench Lip Rescue Duo: The holidays are the perfect time to stock up on cult-beauty favorites. A lot of brands put together little combo/value sets for the holidays with some of their best-sellers for gifting. This Lip Rescue duo is one of them – it’s a $38 value on sale for $19 so you’re basically getting two lip shades for the price of one. It’s a great lip balm that comes in both a really pretty rosy pink and warm pink. It’s also super easy to reapply throughout the day since it’s more of a balm consistency (no mirror needed) and leaves your lips feeling super soft. It has a slight mint flavor to it and leaves your lips super hydrated. They are both full size so you can also split them up so your stocking stuffers go even further – your friends will love!

Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara: Another sure-fire stocking stuffer – this mascara. It gets amazing reviews and the packaging alone feels like a present wrapped within another present. So cute!

 + 1 FOR YOUR BEAUTY-OBSESSED BFF

Fake-Awake Eye Highlight: The eye highlighter is one of the best moves in every MUA’s handbook and best way to fake a good night’s sleep. This is a great gift if you aren’t sure what shade your BFF or sister in law is but want to share a favorite with her. This is also a great gift just to keep on hand for birthdays and holidays.

Cheek Palette: While we are on the subject of highlights, I used this cheek palette set and was blown away, especially by the highlighter. It’s technically over $25, but comes in three compact stacks with 3 colors each, so you can break it into 3 different sets to give out as gifts (under $15 each).  I used the gold compact with shades ‘Let it glow’ and ‘I’m smitten’. They are soooo pretty in real life and also show up really well in pictures 10/10.

Below are more of my recent cult-beauty buys that I swear by:
