Some people just have that “it” factor to them. Fact. And, while being extremely lucky winners of the genetic lottery may have a little something to do with it, their favorite beauty products definitely help. Knowing how to craft the perfectly arched brow and a faux-glow that radiates anytime—anywhere—is an art form, and these girls own it.
From the New York obsessive who uses fragrance as a form of self-expression, to the beauty-obsessed chemist that slathers on sunscreen religiously, these ladies have a few beauty staples up their sleeves that we’re all ready to stock up on. We talk to some of Instagram’s coolest women on the beauty products they wouldn’t dare to part with, below.
“I wouldn’t want to live without Glossier’s Milky Jelly cleanser. I use it morning and night, it removes dirt and makeup easily without stripping my skin. It’s totally gentle yet effective and I pretty much panic if I ever run out of it. It’s so hard to find good cleansers and I feel like this one is exactly what my skin wants and needs—simple and easy.”

“Skin cancer runs in my family, so I’ve been trying to be extra diligent about applying SPF. I love the Supergoop Superscreen because it makes remembering my SPF as easy as putting on my moisturizer. In addition to protecting my skin, it keeps it moisturized all day long while still feeling lightweight and wearing well under makeup.”
“I would have to say the Caudalie Beauty Elixir is my go-to. It makes everything better no matter the time of day or situation (makeup or no makeup, bad skin day or good). It’s like a mini facial and is super soothing.. it smells bomb, too!”
“I have at least two NUDESTIX Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil shades with me at all times. I’m a big lipstick girl and love any product that is versatile or functions as a multi-stick. The formula is creamy and non drying, and gives you a really beautiful blotted lip look. Retro and Purity are my go-to’s!”
“One of my must-have beauty products would be Byredo’s perfumes. Trying to pick one scent is really difficult because I love collecting all their products. I’ve come to really use scent as a form of self-expression and I’m at the point where I can’t leave the house until I’ve chosen a perfume that matches how I feel that day. If I MUST choose a favorite it would be Reine de Nuit from their Night Veils collection”
“I practically bathe in Weleda Skin Food multiple times a day. I slather this stuff anywhere I can. It’s a hand balm, eye cream, highlighter, moisturizer, overnight mask and skin protector, all in one. And yes, I love how thick it is! But if you use a little and let it melt in your hands, you can get it to thin out.”
“I love having that super dewy look to my skin, so I’ve been addicted to Tatcha’s Luminous Dewy Skin Night Concentrate because you literally wake up glowing with the most supple skin. It’s super lightweight but so moisturizing and wakes up your skin. You can use all the highlighter in the world (which I’m also addicted to) but my skin has looked that much better since I’ve added this to my nightly routine.”
