Do you ever get overwhelmed when you walk into a makeup store? Because I do. With aisles and aisles packed floor to ceiling with different lipsticks, eyeshadows, hair products, and more, I rarely know where to start shopping. In that moment, I usually wish I had a beauty expert with me to lead the way. If you’re on the same boat, don’t worry: Bustle reached out to dozens of makeup artists and hair stylists with hopes that they would show us the products they swear by — and they didn’t disappoint.
Here on this list, you’ll find various beauty products that’ve been recommended by the pros. There are cleansing shampoos, long-lasting tubes of mascara, easy-to-apply eyeshadows, and even a nourishing jojoba oil-infused hair oil. In fact, celebrity hairstylist Jillian Halouska recommended that oil — and she says that it’s “incredibly nourishing.” And about that mascara? Meredith Boyd, a celebrity hair and makeup artist for TV, says that her pick is “one of the best.” Bonus? It’s available on Amazon for $5.
Yes, that $5 mascara can be yours — along with so many more makeup and hair products included in this roundup. They’re all stylist-approved and ready for your vanity.
