Ever love a product so much it makes you feel whole? You’re not alone, which is why we’re having our favorite tastemakers spill the items they can’t live without.

Who: Chase Polan, @kyprisbeauty
Where: Scottsdale, AZ
By Day: Founder and CEO of KYPRIS Beauty, which really means lead alchemist, researcher, lab rat, student, educator, farm hopper, design editor, copy writer, number cruncher, follow-upper and 'Thank You' sayer.
By Night: Fortunately, both my husband and I have creatively engaging and fulfilling professional roles. So, for the most part we are complete homebodies. We like cooking at home—well, really I like going to farmers' markets and the grocery store, and then cooking something elaborate at home. Luckily, my husband likes to clean. Personally, I love art, so gallery openings and trips to the museum are great. Decadent brunch or dinner out. Browsing shoes, makeup and outfits. Shopping at my favorite secondhand and vintage stores. Being outdoors in beautiful weather, which generally involves rain. Traveling—especially to beaches and other large bodies of water or lush greenery. Reading history books on the personal-care industry, feminism, psychology, technical manuals and memoirs. And last but certainly not least, watching romantic comedies. I am a total sucker for dripping-in-cheese, high-requirement-of-suspended-disbelief rom coms.
Style: I am the classic glam extremist. I either have on my work uniform of skinny jeans and my favorite Zadig & Voltaire sweater with Dansko clogs—gotta be OSHA compliant!—or I am wearing an outfit that I completely orchestrated, usually of the designer ilk that is likely a tad overdressed for Arizona.

You Complete Me: Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler, $20

This eyelash curler serves two purposes: the traditional intention of beautifully lifting lashes with a fabulously femme curl. And second, a discovery from my college cramming days, it helps me feel more awake. Next time your eyelids feel heavy, try it! Curl your lashes—Shu Uemura eyelash curler required. It just doesn't work as well with other curlers."
