Why It's Great: For the Opening Ceremony show, models got a luxury skin-care treatment with a range of Dr.Jart+ products. But it's the face roller that sealed in their glow and reduced swelling around the face—because when you're doing multiple shows a day, you're bound to have under-eye puffiness.

How to Use It: After you wash your face and apply your skin-care potions (like a serum, perhaps), gently roll the Shaper over your skin. To maximize the benefits, you can roll it over a sheet mask as the formula penetrates your skin.

The Magically Mesmerizing Mascara

The Product: Dinoplatz Escalator Mascara

Why It's Great: With the turn of a dial, you can adjust the length of the brush: the long bristles stretch lashes for more volume, while the shorter ones thicken lashes. You'll probably spend a lot of time playing with the cool dial, too.

How to Use It: Twist the product to your preferred setting and slowly glide the wand along your lashes from the root to tip. Repeat and you're good to go!

The Healthy, Hassle-Free Not-Gel Gel Polish

The Product: Durilaq Gel Effect Lacquer

Durilaq Gel Effect Lacquer, $10, duri.com.

Why It's Great: The first of its kind, this gel-like polish is a "5-free" formula, which means it doesn't have harmful ingredients like toluene, camphor, or formaldehyde resin. Although it has gel in the name, you don't have to go through the trouble of putting your nails under a lamp.

How to Use It: Apply a base coat and let it dry. Then paint on your favorite Durilaq color. Once it dries, add a top coat for extra shine.

The Hair Spray to End All Hair Sprays

The Product: Strong Finish Hair Spray

Why It's Great: The new spray holds in texture and styles without causing hair to stiffen, so your hair can still blow in the wind post-spritz.

How to Use It: Style your hair as you wish and finish off with the hair spray.

The Most Coveted Lipstick of the Season

The Product: Lust 004 Lipstick in Blood 2

Lust 004 Lipstick in Blood 2 by Pat McGrath Labs, $25, sephora.com.

Why It's Great: Come on, we don't really need to tell you why a product created by makeup artist Pat McGrath is great. But if we must, the beautiful dark and golden lips (created with the lip kit) really pulled together the muted palette of Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne's streetwear collection at DKNY.

How to Use It: Apply the dark color onto hydrated and clean lips. Blot and clean up any color that strays outside the lip lines. Then mix a gloss and a golden glitter together and pat the mixture onto your lips to create a radiant sheen.

The Electric Eyeliner for the Ages

The Product: Chromaline in Marine Ultra

Chromaline in Marine Ultra, $21, maccosmetics.com.

Why It's Great: This little pot can do wonders: combined with a small eyeliner brush, you can create graphic designs, like the look from Chromat's spring 2017 show, draw shapes on your cheeks, or add a layer of color to your lids. It's a choose-your-own-adventure type of situation.

How to Use It: Dip a fine-tipped brush into the product and get to drawing. If you want to keep things simple, line the top lash line and finish off with a little wing at the outer corner of your eye.

Why It's Great: This split-end miracle-worker was used at Tibi, Tome, and Hellessy to help lock in moisture so the models' hair shined on the runway. Use it for runway-ready hair every day.

How to Use It: Apply the formula to the ends of dry hair and smooth in with your fingers. Style your hair as usual and then, for an extra boost, add more of the remedy post-styling to seal in the goodness.

The Automatic Chromatic Nail Polish

The Product: Chain Reaction

Chain Reaction by Morgan Taylor, $9, loxabeauty.com.

Why It's Great: There's a chrome nails trend going around, usually involving chrome powder over polish. But did you know you can get the same shining effect with one swipe (OK, maybe two coats) of polish? Well, you can, with this little bottle of liquid silver.

How to Use It: Apply a base coat to your nails and set them out to dry. Then paint on the Chain Reaction shade. Finish off with a top coat for some extra bling-bling.

The Oddest, Most Useful Lipstick Shade Ever

The Product: Lip Color Loaded Bolds in Wickedly White

Color Sensational Lip Color Loaded Bolds in Wickedly White by Maybelline, $8, ulta.com.

Why It's Great: White lipstick is about to become a staple in your makeup bag. Hear us out. When blended, it can highlight and create shimmery effects on your lips, eyes, cheeks, cupid's bow—really wherever.

How to Use It: To get the look from the Zimmerman show, apply a nude-colored lipstick to your lips, then dab the white lipstick in the middle of your top and bottom lip for a gleam that draws in the eye.
