The scoop: Whether you’re blessed with a naturally voluminous set of lashes or not, a pair of Ardell falsies can add a ton of glamour to any makeup look. If you’re looking for something natural or super long, Ardell has a plethora of styles worth trying out. “Ardell has a great selection of inexpensive lashes, and they feel good on the eye. My favorite styles are Demi Wispies and the Baby Wispies.” —Vincent Oquendo told Allure, who works with Bella Hadid and Janelle Monáe
…FOR LONG LASTING LIP GLOSS

The scoop: Because nobody has time for touch-ups, right? Rimmel London Provocalips has an amazing rep for giving that long-lasting effect. “This product is amazing because it lasts an extremely long time,” makeup master Etienne Ortega told Brit + Co. “It’s great for weddings, red carpets or in my case, my performer clients since it doesn’t come off when they are near the mic! I use this lipstick on Christina Aguilera, the Kardashians (it’s great for long days of filming).”
