Beauty Picks

Before moving into management, I worked for 8 years as a makeup artist for various luxury brands.  I have compiled my list of favorites; these are my must haves everyday (and yes, as a makeup artist from TEXAS, I will have more “must-haves” than most girls!)  To see more posts related to BEAUTY, just select the “BEAUTY” tag on the right hand side of my home page.  ENJOY!

1) This is really 2 products, but I use them inseparably and they take about 30 seconds to apply – so I’ll count them as 1.  Laura Mercier Radiance Primer and Oil-free tinted moisturizer

4) Laura Mercier Candlelight loose mineral powder

  3. Thank you for this amazing list! Because there are so many facial products here, can you share when you use these?

    I noticed one of the eye products is $600.00 and I’m intrigued by this. Why the high price and what results have you seen?

    I love unbiased opinions from experts in the beauty industry, so thank you again!

    • I use all of the Revive products at night. It is an expensive line, but it is the best anti aging skincare I have ever found. The volumizing eye serum helps to fill in the hollow that we start to develop under our eye as we age (it also plumps lines).

      The Natura Bisse is a peel that I will normally do after I wash my face at night 2-3 times per month.

      The La Prairie sleep mask is great if you have an event… you literally sleep in it and your skin feels nice and firm and smooth in the morning.

      The Kate Somerville scrub I keep in the shower and use once a week or so.

      The Chanel Eye Cream is good day or night… it is a heavier cream, so it could be used just at night.

      I hope this answers your questions! I am about to update this page with some new finds… so check back soon!
