We love taking a sneak peek behind-the-scenes to find out which new and noteworthy makeup products celebrity makeup artists are using and loving. That’s why we asked celebrity makeup artist Monika Blunder, who is known for her work with stars Megan Fox, Jessica Alba, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Behati Prinsloo, to name a few, to open up her kit and let us know which products she never leaves home without.
Why she loves it: “I love this concealer because it really covers and bounces light, which gives a nice brightening effect under the eye, while being lightweight and noncakey! I use a damp beauty blender mini to apply, then immediately set it with Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder to prevent any creasing.” $29, sephora.com
Why she loves it: “The application is a dream! This foundation blends beautifully and it also builds gracefully without becoming heavy. The foundation has a demi-matte, yet glowy finish! I love using it with my fingers, but it also works great with a brush to build coverage.” $45, charlottetilbury.com
Why she loves it: “It goes on like a lip gloss, but has the intensity of a lipstick. It’s also long-wearing and has a semi-matte finish. Because it’s matte, you want to make sure you hydrate your lips before you apply. For this, I really love Hourglass lip oil. I’ll usually apply this while I prep the skin, so when it comes time for lips, its fully absorbed.” $28, sephora.com
Why she loves it: “It has the perfect amount of density to give you airbrush results! I love using this brush for powder and setting powder, because it gives me the perfect veil of product over the face.” $48, ulta.com
