Mac Matte Lipstick in Red Rock, $18.50

NYX Wonder Pencil, $4.50

Mineral Fusion Luster Bronzer Duo, $33
“This bronzer, made by Denver-based Mineral Fusion, works great on any skin tone and comes with both a highlighter and a contouring color. It’s a true bronze color, so it won’t leave you looking orange.” —Miriam Dondrae Andolini
L’Oréal Lash Paradise, $10
“You should replace your mascara about every six weeks. I am not one to overspend, so I always buy mine at a drugstore. Lash Paradise is my current favorite. It leaves your lashes looking feathered and not flaky or clumpy.” —Danica Severance
Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation SPF 15, $39
“This foundation is a staple in my kit. It looks great on all ages, delivers medium to full coverage, feels lightweight and stays on for 12 hours. It also goes on smooth on the driest complexion.” —Danica Severance
