9 Women Share The Exact Products That Give Them Their Signature Looks
"My lipstick matters as much as my clothes—I feel naked without it. I never used to wear makeup at all until two years ago. Now I need lipstick to get out the door. My favorite colors are deep plum or a soft, matte red.
"Lipstick can change my whole mood: It makes me feel more powerful, friendly, and confident when I approach people. And a bold lip color never fails to bring edge to whatever I wear. Strangers will even stop me in the grocery store to tell me they like my lipstick. It gives me life!"—Brandi Kinard, 21, student

"When my mom finally gave me the green light to wear makeup in high school—despite her encouragement to stick to a natural look—I was like, 'Give me the funkiest colors!'
"Now I wear them mostly when I'm going out, or when I see a color I really like, such as this orange-red shadow. I'll also experiment with pinks, greens, purples, and yellows whenever the mood strikes. I usually use my fingers to blend it onto the lids—and I keep the rest of my makeup spare so there's not too much going on at once."—Daniela Medina, 31, book designer

"I have such a baby face, and contouring is the only thing that gives it definition. I never used to wear makeup besides mascara. But a few years ago, when the whole world of beauty opened up on social media, I started watching videos and learning. It became my hobby.
"I usually keep it pretty natural. First, I add bronzer to contour under my cheekbones and around the perimeter of my face. Then I lightly dust coral blush onto the tops of my cheekbones—I don't like to pack it on. I also keep my highlight subtle, since I don't want it to be super noticeable when I'm walking down the street. I use my finger to dab it down my nose, onto my cheekbones, and around my eyes.
"I contour every day. It's like making my coffee: The ritual helps me feel prepared to take on the day."—Leila Chee, 23, advertising exec
"People comment on my skin all the time—they say it looks really fresh. More than any makeup, I'm all about having a really good skin-care routine to get that dewy look. I will admit I have a pretty decent complexion to begin with, but I also spend about 15 minutes morning and night on my regimen.
"Aside from SPF, the keys are an antioxidant serum and a rosewater mist. I mist for extra hydration—and I carry the bottle in my purse at all times, just in case my face starts to look dry at any point during the day. I love that this look brings out my natural glow."—Madison Smith, 21, student

"My lashes are naturally long, but I support them with mascara. There's rarely a day when I don't wear it. I think it opens up my eyes, and while I generally don't wear a lot of makeup, I feel like I can't go without mascara. It just makes me feel done.
"When I'm going out at night, I use the curler and primer to really amp it up. I pump the curler gently so I don't break the lashes. Then I use the primer and mascara on the top lashes only—otherwise, it tends to smudge under my eyes no matter what I wear."—Eva Hansli, 29, fashion buyer
"I've experimented with black eyeliner in the past, but I learned it didn't do much for me. Eyeshadow really accentuates my green eyes, and I think it makes my everyday look more interesting.
"I first line my eyes with a shimmery peach shadow stick. Next, with my palette, I blend Foxy, a linen hue, onto my lids and up to the brows. Then I brush the pearlescent Bootycall under my brows and apply Chopper, a copper, to the lids. I brush the chocolate-colored SnakeBite into the crease and blend it all with the bigger brush. Finally, with a damp liner brush, I smudge sooty Blackout along the upper lash line.
"Applying makeup, especially shadow, is a lot like painting—it's fun! And it adds creativity to the daily hustle and bustle."—Kathryn Millington, 27, sales manager

"I work in such a chill atmosphere—I'm a software engineer—that my no-makeup makeup is a part of my lifestyle. The look is very simple and takes me three minutes to do, and that's exactly what I need in my life.
"I just swipe on concealer where I need it, add mascara—lightly brushing it onto my brows too—and use a sheer lip gloss. In the summer, I'll usually toss in some lipstick for fun, but that's it."—Laticia Chance, 27, software developer and DJ
"I was performing in a show in Nashville and had to do my own makeup for it. I kept doing the same look every night and eventually wanted to change things up. So I started watching makeup tutorials on YouTube. That's when I began wearing dramatic eyeliner. I love the way it can change the shape of my eyes.
"First, I line the waterline of my upper lashes with a black eyeliner pencil, and then I use a black liquid liner to line the upper lash line and do the wing. I draw the first wing in a single swipe, which sets the tone for what the one on the other eye is going to look like.
"It's the hardest step in my makeup routine. But that makes it especially rewarding when the wings are even on both sides!"—Lindsay Ross, 32, actress
"If I wear makeup, I wear blush. I've always loved it. I used to play with my mom's makeup when I was a kid and put her rouge on my cheeks, so I've been wearing it since I was 8!
"Still, I'm a natural redhead, so it's taken me up until my mid-twenties to figure out what blush looks good with my hair color. For me, that's a rosy, shimmery shade. It's especially important in the winter, because my freckles disappear and I get so pale without them. The blush gives me some contrast. If I don't have any blush with me, I'll even pinch my cheeks to fake it.
"I usually swirl a brush around a pink blush—with some shimmer—and dust it onto the apples of the cheeks, sweep it up the cheekbones, and dab a little onto my nose and chin.
