Here at Byrdie, we test new beauty products like it's our jobs-because it actually is our jobs. Out of the combined hundreds of products we try each month, there are only a select few that we love, we use, and we end up writing about. Out of those formulas, there are even fewer we deem worthy enough to call our all-time favorites.
Stocksy My first impression of the "type of woman" whoВ would getВ Botox came from an episode of The Real Housewives of New York . In season one, we follow housewife Ramona Singer-who is portrayed as being superficial, high-society, and obsessed with youth-into the doctor's office to get a little prick here and there to zap the wrinkles on her forehead and on either side of her eyes.
Imaxtree Growing long, healthy nails can be one of the trickiest areas of beauty to master. Some people just seem to get lucky, boasting naturally strong, enviable nails with just the right nail beds and just the right shape-and all with next to no grooming.

Every morning starts out in pretty much the same way. I wake up, scroll through my phone (don't judge me), and get out of bed. I walk across the room to the mirror and inspect my face. Without fail, I have "pillow face" every single time, with creases and folds from the position in which I slept the night before.
Even though Kim owns her own namesake beauty brand, Kendall acts as an ambassador for Estee Lauder, and Khloe and Kourtney have each collaborated on various beauty products in the past, we still consider Kylie to be the reigning queen of makeup in the Kardashian-Jenner household. Why? It's simple. She was the first sister to step into the beauty space, launching Kylie Cosmetics all the way back in 2015, and she has since amassed a billion dollar businessвЂ¦That's why we don't think it's a stretch to say that she has the makeup market on lock.
As of last year, oil had becomeВ the ugly duckling-turned-beautiful swan of the beauty world. Formerly avoided like the plague (Clogged pores! Greasiness! Breakouts!), oil is now being slathered on by everyone and their mother (literally, though-it's great for aging skin) and used to cleanse, moisturize, brighten, and even fight acne.
