To wrap up Art Week for Best Bets, try this fancy Japanese cleansing oil by Shu Uemura, now in a new edition designed by Parisian kitsch artist (and former Ottoman princess) Yazbukey. A cult classic and rumored favorite of Madonna, it takes off layers of makeup in a single swipe — as long as you massage it into dry skin. If you prefer a wash to an oil, just add water to transform it into a milky cleanser that never makes your face feel tight or stripped. A simple splash of this can transform even the most made-up Lady Gaga back into Stefani Germanotta in under five minutes.
