“The Covergirl LashBlast Fusion Mascara ($8) is my favorite mascara. I have used it since high school and have yet to find anything I like more. I also absolutely love my Wet Brush ($9). It’s really soft on your hair and doesn’t cause any breakage. When I travel, I always have Aveeno Positively Radiant Makeup Removing Wipes ($8) with me—they’re by far the best makeup wipes I have ever used. I love that after I use them, my face doesn’t feel dry.”

“Two drugstore products I absolutely love are Maybelline New York Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation ($6) and L’Oréal Voluminous Volume Building Mascara ($9).  The foundation is great for flawless skin and I still never find myself using any mascara besides the L’Oréal one.”

“My favorite drugstore foundation is NYX Cosmetics Total Control Drop Foundation ($14).  I love it because it’s matte and very lightweight, and after it dries, it feels like you have nothing on your face. I also love an ombré lip, and the trick to create it is using NYX Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in Forbidden ($6).”

Rachel Parcell, Pink Peonies &@RachParcell

“I swear by Lansinoh HPA Lanolin ($10)! It might sound weird, but when I had my daughter my lips got so chapped so I started using it and I still use it every night. Also, my sisters and I grew up using the Dove Beauty Bar ($4) to wash our faces and it’s still a staple in my skincare routine. Another great product is the Sally Hansen Insta-Dry Nail Color ($5). Whenever I’m wanting a new color on my nails and am short on time, I always use this because it seriously dries so fast and doesn’t smudge. Finally, I like to have Crest 3D White Luxe Professional Effects Whitestrips Strips ($70) on hand to use every now and then. I love how my teeth are always visibly whiter after using them!”

NYX Prismatic Eyeshadow in Mermaid ($6) is so stunning on the inner corner of your eye, whether you are doing a colorful look or a neutral one. I also can’t go without the Pixi by Petra Glow Mist ($15). Not only does it hydrate the skin, but it also leaves this natural glow (sans shimmer!) on your face. Finally, I tell everyone to pick up the e.l.f. Illuminating Eye Cream ($10) because it’s such a good hydrating eye cream for the under-eye area.”

“One thing I MUST use on myself is Blistex Bliss Flip Lip Balm ($5). Everyone needs lip balm, and this product makes lips look instantly flake-free and hydrated. As a bonus, the top stays attached when you ‘flip’ so you’ll never lose the cap in the bottom of your purse. I also tried out Australian Gold Botanical Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50 ($15) while paddle-boarding in Florida and was crazy impressed with how it stayed on. It truly isn’t greasy at all and the lotion is like a physical, velvety barrier between your skin and the sun.”
