One of the things the HG staff has in common (aside from a love for cheese, kittens, and Hopper from Stranger Things) is a true affection for beauty products. It was only natural, then, that we turned our expertise and fan-girling into our first-ever Beauty Crush Awards!

HG’s editors spent hours testing hundreds of makeup, skin care, and hair products to see which ones would become our ride-or-dies, and now we want to share them with you. Whether you’re looking for a new dry shampoo to be your boo, a new bronzer to call your own, or a lipstick you’d gladly wear while making out with a breakfast burrito, we’ve got the best of the best picked out for you.
