1. Cover Girl Bombshell Volume by LashBlast Mascara (8.99, walgreens.com)
This new CoverGirl launch is our new favorite mascara, hands down. It’s dual-sided, so one brush gives you volume while the other delivers length. My lashes have never been this full without the aide of lash extensions.
2. ULTA Resolve Purifying Cleansing Wash ($9, ulta.com)

This is one of Pantene celebrity stylist Danilo’s favorite products. He uses it at all stages of styling and on all of his clients, regardless of hair type. Danilo refers to the product as the “iconic cream” because it truly does everything. “I use this product in so many different ways,” says Danilo. “It is a great foundation for any hairstyle and it keeps hair touchable, shiny and frizz-free all day long. The Finishing Crème is perfect for all stages of styling: on wet hair before blow-drying, as a heat protector before styling, to smooth frizz on dry hair, and for an extra boost of moisture throughout the day.”
