Spring Cleaning for Your Makeup Bag: The Only 5 Products You Need

beautybagThere’s a universal theme of de-cluttering come spring, and it’s time it trickled down to your beauty stash. Say your goodbyes to those long-empty lotion bottles, prehistoric lip liner pencils, and glitter eyeshadows collecting dust — we’ve rounded up the five absolute essentials to streamline your makeup bag.

1. Caroline Chu Anti-Aging Eye Cream ($40)
A lucky few have yet to deal with the woes of fine lines, but for the rest of us, a hydrating eye cream is a must. Rich blends of meadowfoam and cucumber extracts and Vitamins E and B5 keep those pesky lines at bay, while decreasing irritation for the perpetually sensitive-skinned.

2. Tweezerman Full Bling Gold Slant Tweezer ($25)
With bold-browed beauties like Cara Delevingne and Lily Collins stealing the spotlight these days, we’re officially within the age of the statement brow. Keep yours in check with the precision tweezers you’ll find in any glam squad’s arsenal. Gold Swarovski crystals give this pair a playfully glamorous punch.

3. Jouer Instant Chic Collection Customizable, Portable Palette ($52)
Bronzer, cream blush, eyeshadow, and lipgloss in one easy place? Yes, please. This all-in-one wonder features the brand’s signature snap-and-slide packaging so you can tote along whatever palette combo you need for the day.

4. ESUM Face Brush Duo ($42)
These pro-grade favorites are the perfect companions to the Jouer palette, seamlessly applying and blending at once. Better yet? Each brush is handmade from the finest materials: Think natural fiber hair and cured birchwood handles.

5. La Roche Posay Substiane + Firming Moisturizer ($45)
Your complexion would be lost without a top quality moisturizer, and this daily treatment is just what the doctor ordered — literally. French dermatologists created the unique formula with healing thermal spring water to treat redness, wrinkles, and blemishes.

Now, don’t your latest additions deserve a stylish new home? Opt for Jouer’s pastel pink leather bag, which conveniently doubles as a luxe night-out clutch (genius). Get your hands on everything here — plus more of our best beauty steals up to 75% off — in our Skincare & Cosmetic Essentials sale today.

Fendi Selleria Collection: The Art of the Watch

Bespoke suits from Saville Row, haute couture gowns from Parisian ateliers — When it comes to next-level quality, it’s all about a custom craft. Leave it to Fendi, the near-90-year-old Italian luxury house famed for their furs, to inject that same standard of artistry into their fine jewelry. In 2010, creative director of accessories Silvia Venturini Fendi introduced the Selleria watch collection (debuting on Gilt today), which features interchangeable cases and straps for endless combinations to suit your style and mood. Swiss-powered and Italian-designed, the innovative watches are hand-stitched and crafted from the same Cuoio Romani leather used for the signature Selleria handbags, launched in the company’s first year. See the meticulous handiwork in the video above, and invest in a piece of history for yourself in our Fendi Watches sale.
