Vogue reveals its top beauty products for 2020.

Vogue Magazine is one of the longest-running fashion and beauty publications. It's a trusted source for everything on fashion, beauty, lifestyle, and celebrities. Under Vogue Editor-in-Chief Dame Anna Wintour's discerning eye and with the help of celebrity makeup artist Fara Homidi, top hairstylist James Pecis, facialist Elaine Huntzinger, colorist Lena Ott, manicurist Emi Kudo and holistic nutritionist Daphne Javitch, the Vogue beauty editors have whittled down their top choices from the staggering number of new product launches of 2020.

(M)anasi 7 All Over Colour in Fuchsine

This multipurpose makeup product can be applied on the eyelids, cheeks, and lips for a bright pop of color. It's creamy and goes on sheer but is very pigmented and can be mixed with other shades from the All Over Colour line. Homidi adds that it's great for any skin tone. It's also formulated with nourishing ingredients like organic sweet almond oil, beeswax, shea butter and castor seed oil. If you want a bold alternative color to red, this is it.

Alleven Colour Shield Glow Luminizing Body Enhancer

For a sheer and sun-kissed glow, Homidi likes applying this illuminating and lightweight mousse on the face. Her pro-tip: skip the foundation and using a brush, buff it lightly on the face for a warm and even glow.

Chanel Le Blanc Rosy Light Drops

This liquid highlighter can be used alone or mixed with foundation. Homidi shares that she prefers this rose tint instead of the more common gold or champagne hue to bring light and energy to the skin. Highlight your brow bones, chin, and cheeks to liven up the face, especially in the winter.

Victoria Beckham Beauty Posh Lipstick: The VB Edit

Homidi thinks that every color in Victoria Beckham's Posh Lipstick line is perfect and very comfortable to wear. While the Posh Lipstick collection comes in nine shades, the VB Edit set features three of the collection's universally flattering shades: Spice (ginger nude), Pose (mauve) and Pout (coral pink).

Oribe Gold Lust All Over Oil

Rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants, Pecis shares that this multipurpose oil can be used on the hair, face, and body for a rich boost of moisture. Some of its key ingredients are grape seed oil, olive fruit oil, argan oil, avocado oil, jojoba oil and sweet almond oil.

Drunk Elephant F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial Mask

For dry and sensitive skin, Huntzinger recommends using this mask as a moisturizer. Formulated with niacinamide, ceramides, coconut water and both linolenic and linoleic acids, it's meant to support the skin's natural barrier, calm redness and improve visible signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles.

Bioeffect Imprinting Hydrogel Mask Set of Six

Anytime your skin needs extra moisture, Huntzinger suggests leaving this mask on for 30 minutes. Huntzinger praises its deeply hydrating serum and likes that it has no added fragrance. She also says that it leaves the skin plump for at least 24 hours.

Augustinus Bader The Body Cream

This luxurious body cream is perfect for dry and eczema-prone skin. While it's deeply moisturizing and as Huntzinger observes, takes time to rub in and absorb, it is non-greasy and odorless.

Christophe Robin Color Shield Shampoo and Color Shield Hair Mask

For color-treated hair, Ott loves this Color Shield Duo for aftercare. The shampoo is already formulated with conditioner and the hair mask locks in and preserves your dye job.

Essie Expressie Quick-Dry Nail Polish

Essie's quick- drying and vegan formula is formulated without the following toxic ingredients: formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene, xylene, camphor, ethyl tosylamide, dibutylphthalate and triphenyl phosphate. It comes in 40 unconventional colors and Kudo singles out Seize the Minute as the perfect shade of winter red.

Plant Paper 16 Rolls

Javitch says that if people will continue to hoard toilet paper, it might as well be this non-toxic and eco-friendly Plant Paper. It's made from bamboo, easier and more ecological to produce than conventional toilet paper and it's also affordable.
