Hey guys! I came across this article about drugstore products that celebrity makeup artists use. Some of the products are pretty obvious, but there were some that surprised me.
It’s true, in this new golden age of beauty, the products that we put onto our faces aren’t always friendly to the wallet. So it’s good to know that pro’s are as conscious as us when looking for bang for buck!
So, with inspiration from the above, here are my top 5 picks for drugstore products that celebrity makeup artists swear by:
Virgin Coconut Oil
Forget the shea butter craze, virgin coconut oil is pretty much the holy grail of natural skin care. It’s non-greasy, cheap, pumps moisture into your skin and makes you smell like a dessert. Get a big jar of it and take some around with you every day in an air tight travel container. What’s not to like?
Who wears it? Lady Gaga, Queen Bey
Avene Thermal Spring Water
Pure, refreshing spring water. Water isn’t only for drinking. It’s also super versatile! Avene’s Thermal Spring Water allows you to spray a fine mist of it. What can you do with finely misted spring water? Celebrity makeup artist Carole Colombani uses it to set makeup for that “dewy” look, as well as refresh and rehydrate makeup after a long shoot. She also uses it on brushes to give eye shadows that “wet” look. Not sure if I could pull that off, but if you’re pro and game, why not!
Who wears it? Jourdan Dunn, Lea Seydoux, Gwyneth Paltrow
CoverGirl Lash Blast Mascara
Volumizing, waterproof, get’s the job done. What more could you want? At under $15, you won’t cry when someone inevitably borrows it. And you can feel pretty confident if the powerful ladies named below are rocking the same mascara.
Who wears it? Jessica Chastain, Mariah Carey, Lucy Liu, Christina Aguilera
NYX Butter Gloss
Ooh! Yum! I love this stuff! NYX has been a bit of a secret amongst makeup junkies like yourself as making high quality, super cheap products. Sometimes their products outperform products that cost 5-10x more and NYX Butter Gloss is one of those products. Lots of colors to choose from, it’s gooey in the good kind of way without being sticky, and it looks amazing!
Who wears it? Kaley Cuoco, Rashida Jones, Anna Faris
Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon
Fast, stylish and so easy to use. These fat little crayons provide matte coverage in a jiffy. Perfect for doing lips 2 minutes before you rock up to work and packed full of natural moisture providing ingredients so you’ll have full, plump lips all day. Love it!
Who wears it? Alexis Bledel, Lisa Edelstein, Kate Bosworth
