Plenty of makeup fans were disappointed to find out that Rihanna's Fenty Beauty blotting sheets, which were rumored to double as rolling papers, were actually pretty terrible for rolling a joint. Though the musician-turned-beauty mogul hasn't yet ventured into the world of 420-friendly makeup (despite the rumors), plenty of indie companies have stepped in to celebrate our affinity for the devil's lettuce.
You know what happens to a brain on marijuana, but what about a face? Marijuana makeup almost always utilizes hemp seed oil, which is ultra-hydrating and can heal dry, blotchy skin (say goodbye to those patchy red spots!). Some makeup for weed lovers even contains CBD oil, which has been proven to reduce anxiety and depression. Other weed makeup simply celebrates our love for glitter and cannabis leaves. Hey, not everything has to have a medicinal purpose, right?
These 420-friendly makeup products are pretty darn chill – almost as chill as lighting up your vape pen and watching some Netflix.

This creamy, non-sticky lip gloss by skincare brand CBD Care Garden is crafted from pure hemp cannabidiol (a.k.a. CBD cannabis oil). CBD oil is derived from the cannabis plant but devoid of THC, so it's totally legal (and maybe a little less fun). That doesn't stop it from being widely beneficial. According to some studies, CBD oil has anti-anxiety and antidepressant effects, making this lip gloss the perfect thing for socially anxious gals who have a habit of reapplying their lip gloss when they're nervous.
Currently, the $43 lip gloss is sold out online, but if you manage to get your hands on a tube, you'll be treated to fun scents like cotton candy and strawberry.

Crafted from organic hemp seed oil, this vegan eyeliner from NativeMinerals is the perfect swipe of color for those who can't get enough sticky icky. Not only is this product handcrafted, but it's ultra-wearable. The smooth, dark green formula brings out the green in hazel and blue eyes and makes brown eyes look richer. Get it from Etsy for $14.

Bitch Slap Cosmetics may have left the actual weed out of their Blue Berry Kush highlighters, but that doesn't mean they're not 420-friendly. These intricate highlighters will show off your passion for pot with a detailed, stamped-in blunt design, and they retail for $20.

You won't get high with Ardency Inn's Modster Big mascara, but you will get fabulous results. This eye-popping mascara is boosted with hemp protein to give you stronger, thicker lashes. The product retails for $25, but Allure swears it will "give you the best lashes ever." Kind of worth it, right?
