"The ideal entry-level self-tanner: It's not too dark, not too thick, not too smelly, and you can even be a little sloppy with it - the formula is easy to remove, even on dry patches."

-Anne-Marie Guarnieri, deputy editor, fashion and beauty

Kiehl's Sun-Free Self-Tanning Formula, $22.50, available at Kiehl's


"On those days when I'm too tired, lazy, or hungover (maybe all three) to really put the effort into wearing a lot of makeup, a swipe of this red lipstick is my go-to trick. It may seem a little fancy for this state of mind, but it instantly makes me feel glamorous, adds life to my face, and takes the attention away from my droopy eyes."

-Megan Cahn, senior beauty editor

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Red Carpet Red, $32, available at Charlotte Tilbury
