Everyone—male or female—needs a great base layer. Kiehl’s Eye Alert is the ideal pick-me-up for early morning fitness classes or the long day ahead. The formula includes cooling extracts that ultimately hydrate the thinner skin of the eye area and caffeine to fight fatigue.  

Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer $54

Hourglass’ primer feels so buttery smooth on your skin. This oil-free formula leaves a silky and airy texture, providing the perfect canvas for makeup. We love that it creates a literal veil over the skin, reducing the overall appearance of redness, pores, and wrinkles.

Rodial GLAMOLASH Mascara XXL $28

NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer $30

The perfect buildable medium- to full-coverage concealer, this is the staff favorite for covering dark under-eye circles and reducing fine lines. This amazing concealer is free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates and is comprised of a multi-active botanical blend that includes magnolia bark extract, grape seed extract, and vitamin E to help retain hydration and reduce redness. The best part? It lasts all day!

The perfect lip color from day to night—just add a little gloss to make it pop for a night out on the town! 

Urban Decay Naked Palette–Original $54

There are multiple Urban Decay Naked palettes, but we love the original palette best! It has 12 beautiful pigments for creating a neutral, smoky, or glitzy eye. Super versatile and great for everyday wear, the Naked Palettes are a makeup bag must. 

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner $20

This one changes the game as the first liquid eyeliner we’ve found with an effortless application thanks to the fine and supple brush tip. Create a variety of waterproof looks with ease! 

Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil $34

Full brows are IN! The Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil comes highly recommended by this month’s featured Arch Over Iris lash artist, McKenzy Windham. This pencil is great for filling in bald spots as well as creating dimension and fullness.
