There are a lot of things I have to be thankful for in life—particularly my fabulous friends and amazing family. But I'd be remiss if I didn't also give thanks for mascara. YES, mascara. Where I would be without the miracle makeup? Who knows. Probably lying in bed all day wearing pajamas and blubbering on about how I wish my lashes were longer and fuller and curlier. I'm not the only one who is as appreciative of the loot in their cosmetics case, their dermatologist, waxer, or stylist. Read on for all of the beauty stuff the Makeup.com bloggers are most thankful for.
Lancome Teint Miracle I constantly get compliments on how glowy and pretty my skin is, but in reality it so isn't. This foundation has been keeping that a secret." —Kristen Oldham Giordani Chanel Le Crayon Kohl Black Eyeliner
"I'm really fair and you wouldn't think jet black eyeliner would be an everyday staple, but it is. It's so creamy and glides on smoothly everytime—I'm instantly awake and prettier in just a few swipes." —Elizabeth Keefe Ed (colorist at Devachan Salon in New York City)
"I am so thankful for Ed who does the BEST color ever in NYC. His highlights are so natural looking and my hair looks healthy not dried out. Plus and VERY important, he uses a special technique for highlighting curly hair (called Pintura) so my curls have brightness and dimension." —Michele Bender Josie Maran Argan Face Illuminator
"Three words: faux glow fabulosity." —Lauren Cosenza Holly (brow expert at Besu Salon in New York City)
"I'm most thankful for my brow guru, Holly at Besu Salon in NYC. She's an extremely talented brow threader and my arches have never looked so full and defined. I refuse to let anyone else touch my brows now." —Jeannine Morris John Frieda Full Repair Touch-Up Flyaway Tamer
"Being low maintenance with my hair routine and always running late, this product is a godsend; it's literally a mascara wand meant to stroke each unruly hair strand with, and can easily be whipped out of my purse and delicately applied while waiting on the subway platform." —Julia DiNardo CONCEALER!
"I'm most thankful for concealer. Is there a product that works greater miracles? The stuff deserves a Nobel." —Grace Gold CONCEALER!
"I am thankful for concealer! It instantly makes me look like I got enough sleep and never get pimples. It's the closest thing to a magic beauty product there is." —Baze Mpinja CONCEALER!!!
"I'm thankful for my Dermablend Concealer. Now that I'm a mom, it's the one concealer that's heavy duty enough to hide my dark circles while still blending in beautifully."
OWN Hydration Lip Therapy
"This is saving my lips this winter—the treatments heal cracked lips, prime lips for lip gloss and lip stain and are cute and portable too." —Charu Suri
Ada (eyelash expert at Townhouse Spa in New York City)
"I'm most thankful for Ada, who does Uptown Girl eyelash extensions at Townhouse Spa. That way I look glam and don't have to spend any time doing eye makeup." —Veronica Jones Elta MD Sunscreen
"Yes, I know we beauty editors preach the gospel of SPF, but my skin truly wouldn't look the same without it. I have a slave-like devotion to wearing sunscreen and I'll often tell my husband he should consider himself lucky--when I'm 40 I'll look like I'm 30!" —Mandy Hendrix Now it's your turn to tell us the beauty product/person/place you are most thankful for.
