Beauty products that are absolutely essential to surviving a season of The Bachelor

EYE DROPS

It’s how you save face when you’ve cried, laughed until you’ve cried, or not slept more than a collective 10 hours since you started this ~journey~.

PRESS-ON NAILS

Horror story: showing up to your first oneon-one with chipped polish *shudders*. Cue press-ons, which take literally five mins and last up to a full week (yep, even during group mud wrestling).

BODY SERUM

Slather one all over before you step out of the limo. The subtle sheen and lingering scent will probably get you the first impression rose.

BROW GEL

Sry, but you’re just not going to beat out the 24-year-old nurse from Ohio if your brows are looking scraggly as hell. Groom them with a few swipes of gel.

TINTED BALM

Tap it on your cheekbones for a woke-up-like-this effect (even though we all know that’s pretty much impossible when you live in a house with 20+ other people).

LIP OIL

Wearing matte lipstick during a make-out sesh = total amateur move. A lip oil is the only way to go for a hint of mess-free, kissfriend­ly color.

SETTING SPRAY

Um, do you know how long these cocktail parties last? How steamy those hot-tub moments are? How un-cute foundation melting down your face on national TV is?

PRIMER

Slap it on your face, neck, and chest before you buff on foundation to create a smooth, glowy base. It’ll fool all of America into believing you weren’t that girl who went HAM on the unlimited champagne.
