This Thanksgiving we’re thankful for our families, our friends, warm sweaters and hot cocoa on chilly nights. We’re thankful for you, our readers, and the opportunity to cover the best in style and beauty as a job. Of course, we can’t help but be thankful for the products we use everyday. After all, they keep our makeup in place, give our skin the hydration it needs and accentuate our most positive features. These are the products we’re most thankful for this year (and every day of the year).
