The Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner is a three-time Best of Beauty winner that launched in 2001 and remains a classic in the category (and a favorite of basically any makeup artist we’ve talked to, ever). Credit the vast range of shades (13m to be exact) as well as the rich consistency of the formula, which goes on slightly more pigmented than other gels, making this a great alternative for those who are fans of liquid liner.
For medium-to-full coverage that has a glowy finish, consider trying out the Estée Lauder Futurist Hydra Rescue Moisturizing Foundation. It comes in 28 shades and is formulated with an ion-charged water complex for extra hydration, as well as SPF 45, so those UV rays are never damaging your skin.

Stila’s Smudge Sticks are available in an array of shades that stay on for hours and, as its name suggests, are waterproof. The color payoff is also really unmatched and just glides onto eyelids like butter.
Stivectin’s Super-C SPF 30 Moisturizer is a skin-brightening moisturizer that is all about utilizing vitamin C to revive dull skin and SPF 30 for sun protection. But wait — there’s more, there’s also Tahitian noni leaf in the formula to give skin moisture and smoothness.

The Urban Decay Eye Primer Potion has been everyone’s go-to for forever because it’s a nearly perfect product. The primer is lightweight with an almost serum-like consistency that spreads and applies beautifully without any buildup or patchiness. It’s not over-the-top sticky, but it will cling on to whatever shadow you put on top and won’t be letting go anytime soon.
It’s no secret that Shiseido knows a thing or two about skin care, and it really did its homework for its Benefiance Day Cream. The brand identified an enzyme that triggers wrinkle production; next, it studied more than 20,000 ingredients to find the best ones to fight that enzyme. Chlorella and gambir extracts — which suppress wrinkle formation — both made the cut, as did hydrating hyaluronic acid.

Lancôme’s Rénergie Lift Multi-Action Night is like a hug for your face, but instead of leaving you with a warm, fuzzy feeling, it imparts firmness. Moisturizing must-haves like shea butter and hyaluronic acid keep skin quenched throughout the night, while peptides ensure a boost in elasticity. If your dry skin loves to soak up a rich cream before going to bed, this is the night cream for you.
