HERA UV MIST CUSHION ($45) "Cushion" makeup is all the rage right now, and for good reason. The sponge-like texture allows for buildable, soft coverage. This tinted foundation/powder contains quinoa seed extract; dab on a little for moisturizing sun protection.

R+CO TWISTER CURL PRIMER ($25) Curly girls should think of this as a building block for styling springy strands. Add softness without crunch, courtesy of ingredients like quinoa protein and aloe leaf extract.

BAREMINERALS LASH DOMINATION INK LINER ($19) Get great definition from this bold, quinoa-infused eyeliner: The felt tip allows for easy variations in line thickness.

HONEST BEAUTY REFRESHINGLY CLEAN GEL CLEANSER ($18) A good cleanser that removes dirt and oil without stripping skin of valuable moisture is hard to find, but this one does the job with assistance from quinoa extract and chamomile.
