My motto is usually In Topshop We Trust, but in this instance ignore the fact that they call this a set for eyes, because really you can use these cream-based formulas anywhere. That pink? Perfect for lips. That bronze? Dab along your cheekbones. Top it all off with the white used as a highlighter (plus across lids, as originally intended) and you’ve got a 30-second beauty look.Too Faced The Secret To No Makeup Makeup - $39
The name kind of says it all. This palette includes a bronzing “veil,” both cream and powder blush (use the former on your lips for an enhanced-pink look), concealer, brightener, and a luminizer (which, if you dab along your lid, will make your eyes pop like whoa).Urban Decay Anarchy Face Case - $44
OK, so some people like the idea of traveling with just four products. But some people don’t...and if that’s you, then this kit is your travel go-to. It’s a little more bulked up (it’s two-tiered and filled with a few different shadows and blushes, plus a highlighter, eyeliner, and lip gloss. To pull off a look like Waterhouse’s you’d only need a quick brush of shadow, some blush, and some well-placed highlighter, but then you’d be all set if you decided to splurge on getting tickets to that XX show in Mexico for New Year’s Eve.
