Retail has changed drastically in response to COVID-19, but one change we hope sticks around is curbside pickup. Instead of dealing with the hassle of finding parking or trying to steer a rickety cart while wearing a face mask, we can get makeup, hair tools, and even furniture delivered right to our cars — or if you don't drive, brought right outside to you. 

At most stores, the process is relatively simple: Place an order online for curbside pickup, wait for a text or email notification saying that your order is ready, head over to the designated area, let the store know that you've arrived, and pop the trunk. It's really simple, but to keep both you and store employees safe, the rules may vary by retailer. We've put together a guide to navigating curbside at 12 retailers, along with a few recommendations on products you may want to add to your cart while you shop from the comfort of your couch.

Now, you can add products from some of our favorite beauty brands such as EltaMD, E.L.F., and COSRX alongside your weekly food shop. 

Unlike some of the other retailers on this list, Walmart gives customers a window of time to choose from so that you can plan your curbside pickup around your other errands. Once you arrive, follow the orange pickup signs and park in one of the numbered spots. You can enter the parking spot and the color of your car in the app to help the associate help find you. Oh, and FYI: Curbside pickup is free, but there is a minimum checkout of $35.
