By popular demand, I have finally compiled a list of some of my favorite products that you will most often see me using if you sit in my chair. While not every product is listed, my favorite and most highly recommended are here to make your beauty shopping that much easier!

01. Tools


I absolutely love the BeautyBlender to blend out concealer into my foundation. It creates the most seamless transition and finish.

02. Skin Prep

Facial Radiance Pads

These pads are wonderful to use before makeup to prep the skin by exfoliating, toning, and brightening.

Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels

These little guys are a bit of a splurge, but they're a 10 minute treatment that will leave you wanting more. Packed with peptides and botanicals that de-puff, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and moisturize, these gels are perfect for prepping the area under your eyes before makeup.

Lait Crème Concentré

I love this moisturizer/primer combo for all skin types, but especially more mature skin. It restores the moisture barrier while diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I allow this product to set for 10 minutes while I am doing my clients eyes.

Strobe Cream

This product is beautiful! I use this on clients who really want that ‘glow from within’ look. I apply it as a primer to the face and allow it to set while I do the eyes. The pearlescent sheen creates the most perfect luminous skin once you apply foundation. If you like the “yoga” or “glass skin” look, this one is for you!

Sugar Lip Polish

If you struggle with dry and flaky lips, this product is for you! It lightly exfoliates and buffs while moisturizing new skin. I use this often on clients to prep their lips for lipstick application.

Lip Sleeping Mask

I can't go without this in my kit - it's such a versatile product. It can be applied as a lip mask, an overnight lip moisture restorer, or even as a prep/barrier for your lips before lipstick. If you struggle with lipsticks drying out your lips, this product is for you. It also works beautifully to top off your lipstick, adding both a gloss effect and an all day moisturizer.

03. Setting Powder

The perfect setting powder for your wedding day to prolong your makeup
Translucent Loose Setting Powder

This is the holy grail of setting powder! It works beautifully on every skin type to set and prolong your makeup. The mini size is perfect to keep in your personal makeup bag, and will last you a very long time.

04. Lips

Buxom Lip Gloss

Buxom lip glosses have been both a staple in my professional kit and my personal makeup bag for years now. They provide the perfect gloss without leaving that tacky, sticky feeling behind. My personal favorite color is "White Russian" as it goes beautifully over multiple nude, everyday shades.

Luxe Cream Palettes

This little palette is amazing! As a makeup artist, I've collected a million different brands of lipstick, and truly these little palettes deliver the most results and leave my clients always asking where they can buy it. The 'Nudist' offers 12 creamy, buildable shades that are perfect for every skin tone. They are hydrating and multi-functional, smoothing the appearance of fine lines and pores. They can be used on both lips, as as a cream blush, and even on the eyes.

Lip Liner

I was skeptical at first to try the KKW lip liners, but this formula is incredible - both highly pigmented, and creamy, this product is easy to apply and wears beautifully while protecting your lipstick from feathering.
My favorite shades are 1.5 and Suede Rose.

05. Highlighters

Perfect makeup powder for a soft and natural glow.
Shimmer Brick Highlighter

The Bobbie brown shimmer brick comes in five wearable shades depending on your complexion. Sweep on cheekbones and collarbones for the the perfect summer glow!

Backstage Glow Face Palette

This is my favorite highlighter by a long shot. Not only is this palette so convenient because it has four versatile shades (that are highly wearable), but this highlight is finely milled, making it a beautiful glow that is not glittery or chunky. Use it to highlight cheeks, nose, and inner corners.

Matte Radiance Baked Powder Compact

A beautiful must for everyone! Looks stunning on the skin without it being too heavy or accentuating texture.  This is a favorite for adding a soft and natural glow to mature skin.

Backstage Face & Body Glow

I love this product for bringing the glow down to your décolletage. Mix in with your favorite body foundation to achieve a perfect radiant skin finish.

06. Concealers

Creamy concealer makeup
Radiant Creamy Concealer

This is an amazing medium to full coverage that looks beautiful on the skin. It's very long-wearing and easy to blend out.

Luminous Silk Face and Under-Eye Concealer

A bit of a splurge, but this is a hydrating concealer (for all skin types) that is medium coverage and lasts all day while looking beautifully radiant. I love this especially for mature skin, as it is
not matting.

07. Face Palettes

Ultra Creamy Concealer

A newer product for me, but I have been loving this concealer for my dryer clients who want a full coverage look. It blends beautifully with other products and blends out easily.

Under Eye Brightening Corrector

I love this for people with darker under-eyes. The peachy tone helps to color correct the blue/purple tones that so often come with dark circles.

08. Contour & Bronze

Makeup bronzer for gorgeous skin
Coconut Perfect Tan Bronzer

These bronzers are such an incredible formula. Easy to blend and looks so gorgeous on the skin. I mostly use the shades Tan-Tastic and Tantalize. 

Backstage Contour Palette

I love this little palette to contour and sculpt. The multiple shades make it so easy to blend for your perfect color match.

Shimmering and glowing lighting bronzer
Ambient® Lighting Bronzer

A little bit on the pricey side but so well worth the splurge! The formula has a slight shimmer to it, so they work best for just bronzing, but will give you such a beautiful summer glow. My favorite shades are Luminous and Radiant. 

09. Blush

Luxe Cream Palette

I love this palette for cream blush. The product is beautiful and smooths the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with a wash of color that will last all day!

Blush Color Infusion

This is a staple in my kit! I love her blushes because they are such a long wearing formula! The colors I use the most are rose, chai, and strawberry. Lightly layer on top of cream blush, for a wash of color that will last you all day long. 

10. Brows

Brow Wiz

This little guy is incredible for quickly and precisely filling in your brows. Equipped with a  brow brush on one end to set brows in place once done.

Brow Freeze Styling Wax

A styling wax for your brows, that is perfect for achieving that soap brow affect, or just taming and sculpting your brows without leaving behind a pesky residue afterwards.

11. Eye shadow

Viseart Eyeshadow Palette

Viseart palettes may be on the more pricey side, but they’re worth every penny spent. They are by far my favorite shadow formula on the market. They are the most pigmented colors and they blend seamlessly. These shadows are well worth the hype! 
My favorite palettes from them are neutral & warm mattes, the Warm Edit palette, the Paris Edit, the Petit Midsummer, the Petit Pro Solstice, Nuance Theory,  and the Paris Nude SlimPro.

This setting spray is soothing to the skin and offers a boost of hydration while delivering a soft sheen that enables your makeup to last all night long.

This is an instant brush cleaner. If you are horrible about washing your makeup brushes every week to keep the bacteria at bay, I highly recommend this product. It is easy to use, and makes deep cleaning your brushes a quick painless task!
