Like this because it’s all natural and really protects my skin against winter’s elements.  Get it from Amazon for $29.95


5. Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Face Mask (Mix With Raw Apple Cider Vinegar)

beauty products

This mask is so intense I only use it twice a month. It is extremely detoxifying and clarifying. I usually have to apply a heavy night cream after. Get it from Amazon for $10.50


6. Burt’s Bees Lipstick


No matter how much we love our luxury lip balms, there will always be a place in our hearts for the O.G. Burt’s—and now we’ve made some room for these boldly hued, majorly moisturizing lipsticks, too, in each of the 14 versatile shades. Get it from Amazon for $9


7. Essie Nail Polish In Jelly Apple

best makeup products

My other red essential? This slightly toned-down, cool crimson. Get it from Amazon for $8.50


8. Nutiva Organic Extra-virgin Coconut Oil

Organic and raw is the way to go. A big tub will last you a month at least, and it’s so good for your skin. You can also use it on your hair and as a makeup remover. Get it from Amazon for $11


9. Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream All-Over Miracle Oil

beauty products online

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it … but please do make an oil out of it. The forever cult-favorite Eight Hour Cream now comes in an oil incarnation that can be used for hair, face, and body—the fact that it smells so good is just a plus. Get it from Amazon for $28


10. Essie Virgin Snow

best skin care

Because the season isn’t complete without at least one suggestively named nail color, we’ll be wearing Virgin Snow all winter long. The pale, icy lavender shade is remarkably flattering on the very fair, the very deep, and all skin tones in between, which is not easy for a pastel polish to pull off.  Get it from Amazon for $8.50


11. Alterna Haircare Moisture Intense Oil Crème Pre-Shampoo Treatment

makeup online

Even the best-cared-for hair can start to tend toward dryness when the temperature drops, so it’s all but necessary to take extra precaution. For an extra hydrating boost, this pre-shampoo treatment infuses hair with rich lightweight oils and locks in color too. Get it from Amazon for $30


12. Tarte LipSurgence Skintuitive Lip Gloss in Energy Noir

cosmetics online

Regardless of whether you believe the claim that this silky, totally nonsticky lip gloss adjusts to a “custom shade,” its moisturizing, subtly glossy finish is flattering on everyone, and the soft plum shade is well-suited to winter.  Get it from Amazon for $19


13. Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Colour

best skin care line

Just slightly satiny and more dimensional than your standard matte lip color, this glorious new formula offers rich, vibrant color in each of its 12 gorgeous shades. Get it from Amazon for $28


14. Kevin Murphy DOO.OVER Dry Powder Finishing Hairspray

makeup products

We have about 10 favorite dry shampoos, but all of them are lacking one thing: hold. No matter how much we apply to absorb the oil around our roots, we still have to follow up with a styling product to give our locks a little oomph. Get it from Amazon for $27.50


15. Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Aging Perfector

natural skin care

A tinted anti-aging treatment that contains retinol, provides SPF 20 sunscreen, and costs under $15? Sign. Us. Up. In six sheer shades, this dewy-finish formula is basically everything we’ve ever wanted out of a skin care–meets-foundation product.  Get it from Amazon for $13.99


16. Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black Dry Shampoo

best skin care products for women

If you’re a fan of the sexy, luxurious Nirvana Black fragrance, which combines floral violet with rich sandalwood and vanilla, then you’ll love the new dry shampoo take—because what’s better than clean-looking hair that also smells incredible? Get it from Amazon for $28


17. Eucerin In-Shower Moisturizer Body Lotion

best facial products

Not the sexiest beauty product, sure, but hear us out: You slap this stuff on your just-washed skin before you get out of the shower, rinse, towel off as you usually would, and reap the nongreasy benefits of seriously smooth, touchable skin. Get it from Amazon for $10.19


18. Smashbox X-Rated Mascara

facial products

Get in on the preorder while you still can, because this innovative formula is selling out fast. It’s supremely buildable, which means it’s just as suitable for creating subtle natural looks as it is for over-the-top glamour, and true to the Smashbox mission, it photographs like a dream. Get it from Amazon for $22


19.Alba Botanica Good & Clean Pore Purifying Mini Peel

best skin products

Use once a week for an at-home peel situation. Get it from Amazon for $5
