Easy makeup hacks
Rodulfo says this is a favorite of hers for days where she doesn't feel like wearing a lot of makeup. It doubles as a moisturizer that gives your skin some glow and also acts as a sunscreen thanks to SPF 35.
The name is fitting for this product — you can truly use it all over your face. Rodulfo calls it "fool-proof" and loves that it looks good on your lips, eyes and cheeks. The super-pigmented colors can be applied with the built-in brush, making it a smart product for anyone on the go, too.
Regardless of your plans for the day, this gel will keep your brows in tact. Rodulfo loves that the skinny wand gives your brows some shape and also fills in sparse spots in your brows, helping to define your face.
If you're looking for voluminous lashes, this mascara won't disappoint. Aside from giving your lashes some lift, it also helps strengthen them, since it's formulated with castor oil.
Mango People is a South Asian–founded brand that is inspired by South Asian heritage. Their product lineup includes this bronzer and a multi-stick that are both compact. You can use them on your eyes as eyeshadow or as a bronzer, Rodulfo says.
