I've Found These 18 Beauty Essentials Weirdly Enhance My Outfit—Let Me Explain
It's 2019, and both beauty and fashion feel like a united front. If our beauty vibe feels off, so too does our outfit—and vice versa. Therefore, it's not all too surprising we're becoming increasingly aware of how our beauty and fashion M.O.s influence one another.
Or in my personal case, how certain random beauty products instantly make me feel way more put-together and on point for whatever the day has in store. On separate occasions, I've found both matte, brick red lipstick and glitter-gilded lids to play well with my collection of leather (be it booties, skirts, or jackets), and even my favorite pair of jeans have less pep in their step when I don't have shimmering, healthy strands cascading down toward them. Am I making sense?
After consulting with my roomie and fellow beauty editor here at Who What Wear, Amanda Montell, we came to the unanimous conclusion that there are certain beauty-enhancing staples in our overwhelming product hoard that have proven to be just as outfit-enhancing, so we thought we'd share all of our data. Ahead, see 18 products that instantly enhance our beauty and fashion game.
Statement Lips That Actually Feel Wearable
Oils That Make Your Strands Sparkle
Elixirs That Give You Barbie Skin
Stellar Cosmic Face Setting Powder in Glow 02 ($30)
And by "Barbie skin," we mean a radiant, airbrushed finish that would make even a trash bag look chic AF. (Seriously, great skin days are just as powerful as good hair days.) For the face, we swear by this other-worldly setting powder from under-the-radar brand Stellar which keeps makeup in place without a hint of matte or flatness. (Adjectives that usually accompany the majority of setting powders we try, FYI.) Whenever Amanda wears it, I can't stop obsessing over—and complimenting—her skin.
