When selecting beauty products, Allure readers are expert shoppers. It’s the reason why we dedicate our annual Readers’ Choice Awards to highlighting the skin care, hair products, and makeup items they love. Lucky for us, some of those readers double as our favorite dermatologists, hairstylists, and makeup artists. These experts are also well-versed in recommending the best beauty products in their respective fields.
Anytime an expert shares their beauty routine with us, we listen closely, take precise notes, and then share it with you. Now, imagine having a curated shopping list that combines the beauty products beloved by both readers and experts. See where we’re going with this?
This year, in addition to earning the seal of approval from readers, we’ve gathered up some of our Readers’ Choice Awards 2021 winners, which also happen to be favorites of some of the best experts in the beauty business.
There are, of course, the tried-and-true products like SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic, which almost every dermatologist we trust uses in their own skin-care routine, and the original Beautyblender, which changed the game for makeup artists, and even a perfume that helped one model get through the pandemic.
Ahead, you’ll find 14 products, that readers picked and experts recommend to help you better your beauty routine.
