I'm a Beauty-Obsessed Fashion Editor—Tour My Current Holy-Grail Product Routine

I've always been the type of person who loves playing with makeup. Since childhood, I'd do my makeup for my dance competitions. I loved testing and trying new products and coming up with different looks. I often watched YouTube tutorials on my phone in high school instead of paying attention in class. (Oops. Well, now I write about makeup for a living, so maybe that paid off?)

This year, I've been trying new brands and products to shake things up and see what I've been missing. After all, with so many viral products and beauty content creators filling my feed, I figured it was time to take a look at my makeup bag and see what needed to be upgraded. After trying a few new beauty products and, of course, remaining faithful to a few of my OG products, I decided to share my updated list of holy-grail products with you. I'm giving you all my makeup secrets—from the gel-based moisturizer I swear by to the foundation I've been wearing for years to the best blushes and highlighters on the market.
