When it comes to getting the flawless skin you see on the red carpet, celebrity makeup artists have a lot of makeup tricks up their sleeves. We asked them to share their best under-the-radar beauty finds that they have found to a get gorgeous-looking complexion.
NYX Cosmetics Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray
“It’s popular among NYX lovers, but it’s virtually unknown to the world! I just don’t think people realize how useful setting sprays can be. I finish the makeup by spritzing a couple times all over the face. It’s amazing how perfect it keeps makeup. It’s also amazing spritzed on a makeup sponge before applying foundation and concealer. It virtually ends the need for powder! Couldn’t live with out it.” – Makeup artist Matthew VanLeeuwen. $8, ulta.com
“First, it is not common for the everyday woman to use anything other than a brush (as per tradition) to powder and set her makeup. But, if you have never used powder with a puff, you should. I love it because you have a lot more control of the placement and the amount of powder you can use and how you use it. It is super soft and gives you a very pleasant experience, but also, you waste less product which saves you money in the end. A puff picks up powder in a more contained place so you can see how much and where you are placing it.” – Makeup artist Tomy Rivero. $13, foreverpuff.com
Wayne Goss The Collection Makeup Brushes
“Wayne Goss released gorgeous brushes this year—the quality on sets is exquisite and you can mix and match separates from each collection to suit your own personal makeup needs. Me? I need several sets of both of them!” – Makeup artist Beau Nelson. $210, beautylish.com
