Fekkai Salon Hair Color
The biggest name in hair salons brings you gorgeous at-home color plus a true salon-style experience: You mix the color components using the bowl and brush provided — just like the pros do — for thorough blending and even color application. (Cosmetology license not required.) ($30)

Your skin color changes throughout the year, from the self-tanned heights of summer to the pastiest depths of winter. This bottle of base has five settings, so you can adjust the color — making it a tad darker or lighter — to suit whichever skin you're in. (Starting at $11.79)
