SKIN CARE

HYDRATING SERUM

The Hada Labo Gokujyun Premium Liquid Lotion is a must-have for brides looking to achieve radiant and flawless skin before their wedding. It's truly my "secret sauce" to create a smooth and even canvas, allowing makeup to adhere better and last longer. 

The 7 types of hyaluronic acid in this liquid lotion work together to provide deep and intense hydration to the skin. Hyaluronic acid is known for its ability to retain moisture, and this product takes it to the next level. Brides often experience stress and fatigue leading up to their big day, and this product helps combat any dryness and dehydration, leaving the skin plump and radiant. 

PRIMER & MOISTURIZER

Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré: An irreplaceable staple in my makeup kit. This multi-tasking gem does it all - from providing essential hydration to perfecting makeup application. It's the secret to achieving a flawless, long-lasting look, making it an absolute must-have for every makeup artist and beauty enthusiast. Don't step into the world of makeup without it!

DRY SKIN, FACE OIL

Need to share this skincare gem! The Goop Beauty Nutrient Face Oil, tailor-made for us dry skin girlies. I use this on my "no makeup" days to keep my skin feeling fresh and ready for those glam days!

This face oil gives the hydration and radiance your skin craves. With a blend of Bakuchiol, Vitamin A, and Vitamin C, it not only combats the signs of aging but also replenishes moisture, leaving your skin soft and supple. What's more, it's silicone and paraben-free, ensuring it's gentle on even the most sensitive skin. I highly recommend the Goop Beauty Nutrient Face Oil to help you achieve that coveted radiant complexion. Your skin will thank you!

VITAMIN C + TUMERIC FACE GLOW

Revamp your skincare routine with Sunday Riley C.E.O. Glow Vitamin C & Turmeric Face Oil. It's like a much-needed boost for your skin – my skin drinks it up! Enriched with Vitamin C and turmeric, it's your secret to a vibrant complexion. It's like a magic potion that not only brightens and evens your skin but also adds a natural glow. Those everyday skin woes? Consider them handled, from dullness to those subtle signs of aging. I use it before sunscreen on my "clean girl makeup" days. To unlock your skin's radiance and maintain a healthy complexion, make Sunday Riley C.E.O. Glow a non-negotiable part of your daily skincare routine. Your skin will thank you!

HYDRATING SERUM

A 3-in-1 serum of clean, kind-to-skin ingredients that gently smooths with lactic acid in Hadasei-3™, plumps with hyaluronic acid, and locks in moisture with squalane for smoother, plumper, dewier skin. Gently resurfaces, and as dead skin cells are washed away, the serum replenishes with two substances native from birth—plumping hyaluronic acid and moisture-locking squalane.

DEWY, PLUMPING MOISTURIZER

Tatcha's Dewy Skin Cream is a rich anti-aging moisturizer that feeds skin with plumping hydration and antioxidant-packed Japanese purple rice for a dewy, healthy glow. Ideal for dry skin, but can be used on normal skin for those who prefer a richer texture. This cream intensely hydrates and seals in moisture, helping to replenish ceramides for a healthy bounce and instant luminosity. A fermentation of Japanese superfoods, green tea, rice, and algae, helps skin to look its most beautiful at any age.

GLAM-FRIENDLY SUNSCREEN

EltaMD UV Daily Tinted Sunscreen with Zinc Oxide, SPF 40 isn't just another sunscreen—it's a pre-glam game-changer. My good friend working in a dermatology clinic recommended this to me, and as a makeup artist, I have to say it's a game-changer. This sunscreen-moisturizer hybrid not only provides essential sun protection but also offers hydration, and it's even designed to help reduce wrinkles. It's become my go-to because it never pills on me, and it sets seamlessly under makeup, something many other products just can't deliver. EltaMD has created a true gem that combines sun protection, skin nourishment, and age-defying benefits, making it a must for everyone, especially those of us in the makeup industry. Your skin and makeup routine will love it...ps..tinted is my favorite for days I go without glam!

SILKY PORELESS PRIMER

This velvety priming balm is pressed silk that shields skin helps makeup apply better and last longer. Glide the spatula lightly across the top of balm. Warm up product in your hands and massage into skin. A little goes a long way & can be used alone or with makeup. Apply after SPF, before any makeup. Great to use on your face, eyes and lips!

GENTLE, CREAM CLEANSER

A gently effective, cream cleanser that washes away impurities without stripping skin, leaving your complexion softer and more luminous. Unlike most pH-neutral cleansers, this formula foams into a creamy lather, leaving skin silky, smooth, and well-moisturized. This key ingredient also helps to balance the pH-level of the skin, which helps the skin function properly.
