Makeup Artist Must-Haves: Inside Monika Blunder’s Kit

By ·
Monika Blunder Makeup Must Haves

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.

1 / 5

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer

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

2 / 5

Sisley Paris-So Intense Mascara

Why she loves it: “The applicator is a comb, which really lets you get to the base of the lashes, and the color is super jet black. I love to get to the base of the lashes and really deposit product there to give me a more voluminous look.” $67, nordstrom.com

Charlotte Tilbury ‘Light Wonder’ Youth Boosting Perfect Skin Foundation

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

4 / 5

Laura Mercier Paint Wash Liquid Lip Colour

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

5 / 5

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Double Airbrush Foundation Brush

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
