Stacy's Top Picks
I love everything about the Scott Barnes Sculpting Palette. I love the texture and shade range. Perfect for sculpting or warming up the skin. I also love using the shades on eyes. They work great as transition shades.
Chelsie's Top Picks
When I first tried out Make Up For Ever's Matte Velvet Skin Concealer, it absolutely changed my life! It's everything I've been looking for in a concealer and more! It has that full-coverage, without feeling heavy or cakey. It has a beautiful, velvet, soft focus finish that just looks amazing underneath the eye, I'm honestly in love!
I love blending this concealer out with Bdellium Tools Golden Triangle Brush 788GT BDHD Phase III, it's the perfect size and shape. It also really allows me to get into every little crevice under the eye. Plus, let's mention how unbelievably soft the bristles are!
Calvin's Top Picks
The Cozzette Universal Contour Palette has colors for every skin tone. You can use this palette to shape and define the face, use the powder as a matte eye shadow, and even use them to fill in the brows in a pinch. I'm all about products that all you to carry less and do more!
Speaking of carrying more, the MYKITCO Backstage Buddy lets you carry everything you need to be on set and have at your finget tips. My favorite part is that it's see-through. So there's no more serching for your stuff.
Mariel's Top Picks
When I tried out the Cozzette Crystal Cream Eye Shadow for the first time, I was amazed at how long-wearing it was. The pigment goes on seamlessly, and a little bit goes a long way in capturing the shine and metallic texture! It gives an immediate uplift and sparkle to elevate your makeup look in time for the holidays.
I have also been searching for a new bronzer, and the Illamasqua Colour Correcting Bronzer caught my eye immediately due to the unique neutralizing aspects. By this time of the year, my skin loses the extra color it had during the summer months, so this has been a great bronzer in adding more natural warmth back into my face while blending well within my skin tone.
Liz's Top Picks
I am always looking for the next best skincare product since my skin can be so complicated. When I first saw the Thorn Oil by Rituel de Fille, I knew I had to try it. It's unique, eye-catching color made me slightly nervous since I am quite pale, but I gave it a go anyway. I have been nothing by impressed by this oil and promise it is colorless once it is applied. The way it quickly absorbs and feels so lightweight, and the beautiful, healthy glow it leaves allows me to feel comfortable in my own skin on no makeup days. It is definitely a new staple in my daily routine.
As we enter the holiday season, I have been debating on gifts for my friends and family. One product that has crossed my mind multiple times has been the Fraicheur Paris Ice Globes. I stumbled across these last spring, and they have been a lifesaver through some crazy events over the last six months. They have helped soothe my allergic reaction when nothing else would, have reduced puffiness on days where my skin was not happy, and they have relaxed me when I was dealing with chaotic moments. I love that I can just keep these in my freezer and pull them out when I need them. Anyone can benefit from a few minutes with these, and let's just say a few people on my list will be receiving a pair under the tree this year ;).
Lauren's Top Picks
Before I started using this primer, I struggled with keeping my eyeshadow on anytime I wore my makeup for a long period of time. I would create this beautiful eye shadow look for it to last only a few hours. The shades will tend to fade away or crease. I've tried so many different eye shadow primers and even using concealer as a base and none of them would work out for me. It wasn't until I started using the Inglot Eye Shadow Keeper that I felt confident to wear eyeshadow again. This primer ensures that your eye shadow last all day! This is a must-have in my personal and professional makeup kit.
When it comes to blush, the Senna Cheeky Blush Palettes are definitely my favorites! The tiniest amount goes a long way and includes the perfect tones for a flush of color on the cheeks. Not only can you use this product for blush, its also a 3-in-1 powerhouse products because you can also use this for the eyes and lips.
Morgan's Top Picks
I don't know about you, but I love a good matte eyeshadow look. The Dose of Colors Baked Browns eyeshadow palettes provide great color combinations for all types of occasions. This palette also gives great pigment in each application.
As for the rest of my face, before I apply my foundation I usually go in with the Makeup Forever Primer Color Corrector to help even out my redness. I like that it's a primer and a corrector in one because it eliminates an extra step I'd normally take when getting ready!
Jessica's Top Picks
I have recently started using Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate in my night time routine to add some extra moisture, and let me just say - I am in LOVE. The lavender essential oil and evening primrose oil mixture is so calming after a hectic day, and the squalane has done wonders for adding that youthful glow back into my skin! This is great for sensitive skin like mine, and if you're looking to add a boost to your nightly ritual - I highly recommend trying this out!
I have been looking for a good tinted moisturizer for a while, and as soon as I tried the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Natural Skin Perfector SPF 30, I knew it was the one. In addition to having skin-loving ingredients, it gives me the no-makeup makeup look I love with just enough coverage to make my skin look as though it's naturally healthy and perfect. It also keeps my skin moisturized all day.
Maria's Top Picks
When it comes to eyeliner, I rarely stray from my favorites, especially when it comes to black eyeliner. I have heavily hooded monolids that cause most liners to crease, so that's why I'm absolutely blown away by Meloway's Your Way Eyeliner + Remover! I've been using this for two months now, and the liner fine tip is just as crisp and deliver the same rich black matte smudge proof pigmentation as the first day I tried it! Not to mention, the packaging is hard to miss in my collection. I can always find it thanks to the bright neon caps!
Another product I can't put down is my Viseart Cashmerie Eye Shadow Palette. While I will always have the Paris Edit in my collection, Cashmerie may be tied for my top recommendation from Viseart. I have a hard time finding cooler or neutral toned eyeshadows that work with my skin tone, but the colors are curated in a way that it suits so many different complexions. I'm smitten!
