It’s not every day celebrity makeup artists let skin come first and makeup second, but that’s exactly what celebrity makeup artist Kate Synnott did with Nicole Kidman’s classic beauty look at tonight’s Critics’ Choice Awards. 

As seen in the snap Synnott shared of her kit while prepping the the Big Little Lies and Bombshell star for the night, her setup was filled with lots of water and even more skin-care products. 

Beside the Lashify B-14 false lashes, must-try Tom Ford bronzer brush and handy lash curler were Neutrogena’s peptide-infused Radiant Setting Spray ($15), Makeup Remover Melting Balm ($12) and the secret to keeping Kidman’s skin poreless and smooth all night: Matte Primer + Serum Shine Control ($17). 


Designed for use on bare, oil-prone skin, the serum sops up oil before it surfaces to keep skin shine-free and matte. The best part? It doesn’t pill, clog pores or feel like concrete on your skin like many shine-stopping primers can.
