Imagine a typical morning. You’re barely awake (pre-coffee) and trying to find the best look to suit your mood for the day, so you revert to your comfort zone and grab the simplest things in your beauty bin. For a stress-free routine, opt for everyday makeup and skin care that you can maintain and feel good in. We’ve gathered some essentials below—like sheer primer, flawless concealer and natural-looking lipstick—to help get you started.
A TRUSTY CLEANSER
Formulated with milky rice water enriched with vitamins and minerals, this foaming cleanser will remove makeup residue with ease. Its lightweight texture will clean and moisturize skin for a smooth finish. For an even cleaner slate, out the rest of our cleansers.

A TINTED MOISTURIZER
Nix those cakey foundations and opt for a tinted moisturizer, which will work with your natural coloring to give you a gorgeous, even skin tone. Formulated with vitamins and natural ingredients, it will illuminate skin while blurring imperfections for a better-than-bare appearance.
AN ON-THE-GO PERFECTER
Made with a blend of shea butter and vitamin E, this nourishing foundation stick doubles as a concealer. Use it atop your tinted moisturizer to cover remaining problem areas, or add a swipe below each eye to appear more awake. Throw it in your purse for on-the-go touchups.
A SUBTLE FLUSH
This liquid blush features a unique cushion applicator and a luxe formula that glides onto skin for a dewy flush. Not to mention, it’s made with rosehip oil, the buzzy ingredient that hydrates, brightens and soothes skin. Still blushing? View our full blush collection.
FINELY LINED EYES
Accentuate your eyes with some fine lines. This waterproof eye liner creates perfect precision and lasts for hours. It’s available in Cosmic Brown and Blackest Black, both of which will complement any eye color.
Follow up with a swipe of Love at 1st Lash Mascara, featuring a blend of vitamins and antioxidants that strengthens and conditions lashes. This smudge-free, clump-free formula will provide instant length and volume, giving you a naturally flawless flutter. For even more volume, check out our mascara collection.
A NEUTRAL LIP
No look is complete without a polished pout. Our signature True Color matte lipstick will coat your lips with moisturizing ingredients like shea butter and sunflower seed oil while providing long-lasting color. We recommend Blush Nude, a universally flattering rosy-nude shade that enhances lips with a natural look. Want a more vibrant pout? Discover our wide variety of lipsticks.
The beauty essentials listed above will help improve and streamline any regimen, preparing you for the day that lies ahead. A consistent everyday makeup routine will simplify your life while helping you feel confident and beautiful.
