An LA Makeup Artists FAVORITES!

Some of my tryed and true favorite products! I am a working makeup artist in LA who covets products that actually work~~Saving me time & massive frustration. Everything I pin here I use: Either personally on myself or on set. I don't buy into any brand hype or just use something because of the name. I'm brutally honest. I seek out the things that make my own life easier, personally and more importantly, professionally. I'm on a tight time schedule and I HATE having to redo a face or worse getting bitched out due to product failure: Two things I avoid like the plague!

Lipstick

Those of you asking me about the lipstick colors of "The Real Housewives of Orange County?" "Cruising" and "Sexual Healing" by Nars. Line your lips with a darker lipliner. I suggest "Morocco" by Nars.

Sephora: NARS : Lipstick : lipstick

I had mentioned before I had two favorite concealers and this is the other one. It's packed full of good stuff, completely camouflages skin imperfections (even zits!) and it lasts all day. As you can tell from my previous pins I don't buy to much into makeup name brands or "hype" and gravitate to the products that actually work because it is time saving and makes my life so much easier. It is a rockin' concealer and I love it so. *big grin*

This product is a cult favorite in the industry and gets alot of hype. The reason? It freaking works! Your eyeshadow (no matter how expensive or cheap) wears like iron. Even if you have crepe-y eyelids (like me) and thought you could never wear eyeshadow again? Now you can so there you go!

Beautyblender. Yes, it lives up to it's hype. Wet it, wring it and dab away any texture from foundation or concealer for a seamless finish.

A matte, natural bronzing powder. Great for contouring too! Sweep across your forehead at your hairline, down the center of your nose, on your cheek bones and a dab on your chin for a great sun kissed look.

I am OBSESSED with these new glossy lip stains by YSL! It's a two-fer: A long wearing lip stain and an in intense glossy stain. It takes a little time to apply correctly but it is sooo worth it because you don't have to reapply and the formula won't dry your lips out.

Laura Mercier Lip Stain in "Shy Pink" It's a stain, it's a balm, it's a gloss, it's PERFECT! Beautiful satin finish and the color is natural and beautiful.

Beauty Balms or "BB Creams" are all the buzz & rage these days in LA. Primer, moisturizer, SPF, pore minimizer & foundation all in one. Saves time, more coverage then a tinted moisturizer~~And this is a good one! My tip? Apply with your fingers instead of a brush. The warmth of your fingers creates a flawless finish.

SPARITUAL "Through the Looking Glass" Summers coming~~Instead of the the traditional pinks, corals or brown on your toes? Why not think about a metallic silver mani/pedi? It's totally neutral and totally upscale looking! A definite summer trend of mine.

Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in CRUELLA. The PERFECT matte red color out there in my humble opinion. I've used this color on all skin tones and it looks Ahhhhmazing on everyone.
