Ah, the power couple—that rare celebrity species that combines the astronomical talents of two ridiculously good-looking, outrageously famous celebrities. Likewise, the beauty world boasts plenty of dynamic duos. Alone, these product stars shine plenty bright but when paired together, they’re guaranteed to take your look to the next level.
Why This Duo Shines: Cream shadows like Jouer’s impart dreamy hues, are easy to apply, and even easier to stash in your travel bag. But after several hours of wear, they tend to leave your lids looking more creased than a crane origami. Smashbox’s herculean primer combats sweat, heat, and humidity to prevent cream-based colors from creasing, smearing, or disappearing.
Why This Duo Shines: Getting a natural finish from our foundation and guarding our skin against damaging UV rays has always been an elusive quest. That is, until these products teamed up (they're available in this exclusive kit). Supergoop!®’s next-generation CC cream glosses over blemishes and corrects uneven skin, while offering protection against UVA, UVB and infrared-A rays. For a flawless complexion, saturate your blender with water and squeeze out the excess. Squeeze a dab of the CC cream onto it and apply to your face with a tapping motion to distribute and blend. Unlike other imitators, the sponge’s soft texture and elliptical shape makes the CC melt into your skin.
Why This Duo Shines: Together, this dryness-fighting team leaves skin silky-to-the-touch and imparts a super subtle bronzed tint. Caudalie’s Divine Legs is originally intended for—you guessed it—your legs, but when combined with derma e®’s therapeutic moisturizer, it can give your entire body an instant (faux) head-to-toe glow. The derma e® formula is fragrance-free, letting Caudalie’s signature blend of sweet-smelling exotic oils take center stage.
Why This Duo Shines: Miss Jessie's lightweight styling lotion defines unruly curls and can even transform stick-straight strands into beautiful spirals. By applying it to your hair before styling it with the clamp-free curling wand, you can create long-lasting, frizz-free waves without kinks. Now that you and your mane are Hollywood-ready, all you need is to score a double date with a fellow power couple like Posh n’ Becks.
Why This Duo Shines: Much like Brooke Shields and Andre Agassi (remember them together?!) these two scents might seem like unlikely pair—but they make it work. Inspired by New Orleans, Smoke Perfume’s vetiver grass leaves behind a rich, spicy finish. Apply a small amount to each wrist using the roll-on applicator, then spritz on Harvey Prince’s single-blossom fragrance. Together they create a smoky-yet-sweet aroma that rich, oaky, and feminine.
Why This Duo Shines: For the uninitiated (and those who do not keep track of Oprah's favorite things), Clarisonic devices use patented technology to cleanse skin, shrink pores and remove blemish-inducing impurities. The brand’s sensitive brush head is gentle, but works with all skin types. When paired with Marcelle’s mild (gluten free) foaming cleanser, the duo creates a rich lather that effortlessly whisks away dirt, makeup, and oil without irritating your skin.
