Looking for the best makeup each season can be hard. However, health.com made it easy with their 2017 Beauty Awards. They asked a panel of experts to test more than 1,000 different formulas and share their honest opinions on which ones really live up to their claims. The experts included Suzy Gerstein, makeup artist; Amber Katz, blogger; Heather Muir Maffei, Health’s beauty director; Rachel Jo Silver, entrepreneur. I picked my favorites from their list and outlined them below.
- Best Highlighter: Stila Cosmetics Heaven’s Hue Highlighter.

Says Maffei, “It lends a sheen that won’t settle into lines.”
- Best Eyeliner: IT Cosmetics Superhero Liner.

“Its tapered tip makes it foolproof,” says Amber Katz, founder of Rouge18.
- Best Lip Balm: EOS Active Protection Balm SPF 30.
