Makeup Artist: Suzy Gerstein
Clients: Leighton Meester, Camilla Belle, Sky Ferreira
A good mascara is often a beauty lover's must-have product, and the Yves Saint Laurent Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara is makeup artist Suzy Gerstein's favorite, according to Teen Vogue. Gerstein says it's the best mascara for getting glossy, thick, and luscious lashes that are still defined. The nylon fiber brush helps to coat lashes root-to-tip with nourishing jojoba oil and beeswax, building up tons of volume and softening lashes.
Makeup Artist: Alice Lane
Clients: Elle, Glamour, Vogue, and Teen Vogue
Alice Lane is an editorial makeup artist who's always on shoots, so she needs a highlighter that works on almost any skin tone. According to Forbes, her favorite highlighter is the RMS cream formula because it's versatile and subtle. She likes to apply it with her fingers on the cheekbones, in the corners of the eyes, and on the cupid's bow. It's made of all-natural ingredients like castor seed oil, coconut oil, beeswax, and rosemary extract, so it's a great organic choice.
Makeup Artist: Rachel Goodwin
Clients: Emma Stone, January Jones, and Diane Kruger
This hydrating moisturizer is a favorite of Chanel makeup artist Rachel Goodwin, according to Cosmopolitan. She uses it for everything from moisturizing her hands and feet, to moisturizing chapped lips, soothing sunburns, and giving hair ends a little hydration. She uses it on her clients, too, for adding a glowy sheen to their skin. It's packed with olive oil and beeswax for maximum moisture and healing wherever you apply it.
Makeup Artist: Nick Barose
Clients: Lupita Nyong'o, Emma Roberts, and Kate Mara
Foundation looks best when it looks like skin, and that's why Nick Barose told Self he uses the Koh Gen Do Maifanshi foundation on his clients. He said this formula truly looks like skin because of its luminosity, which mimics skin's natural finish. He uses it on all skin types, even oily skin. This liquid mineral foundation's formula minimizes pores, and it won't cause shininess, either.
Makeup Artist: Carola Gonzalez
Clients: Kerry Washington, Leona Lewis, Rashida Jones, and Jaime King
If you've had your makeup on all day but have plans later tonight, Carola Gonzalez told Refinery 29 she swears by the Clarins refreshing mist. It has grapefruit and vitamin C extract to refresh your makeup color and give you some extra radiance when your skin starts to look tired. It's an excellent solution for bringing makeup back to life, instead of continuing to layer products on top of each other.
Makeup Artist: Beau Nelson
Clients: Kristen Stewart, Nicole Richie, and Nina Dobrev
When you work with creamy face products like foundation and concealer, it's always important to set everything in place so nothing creases. That's why Beau Nelson told The Coveteur he uses Shu Uemura face powder. Its fine texture is able to set a beauty look without dulling its vibrance, he says. Other fans of the powder say applying the translucent shade over their foundation makes it lasts all day.
Makeup Artist: Fiona Stiles
Clients: Halle Berry and Jessica Chastain
When it comes to getting rid of those pesky stray eyebrow hairs you find while doing your makeup, makeup artist Fiona Stiles told Total Beauty that Tweezerman Tweezers are the "Cadillac of Tweezers." She loves them so much, she always has two pairs. That way, if she sends one out to get sharpened, she still has one in her bag. Pro tip: The brand sharpens all of their tweezers for free, so you can use and keep the tools forever. That's a pretty great deal.
