My kit essentials

As a makeup artist I have a vast selection of products but there are always a few constants in my kit. These are the products I can't do without:

Lancome Eau Fraiche Douceur Cleansing Water - this takes off makeup thoroughly without irritation or leaving a greasy film. Ideal for putting makeup straight back on or at the end of a shoot to take off makeup before leaving.

Janson Beckett Alpha Derma CE moisturizer - perfect for under makeup, this moisturizer also gets rid of fine lines before your eyes.

Jouer Luminizing Moisturizer - I carry all the shades of this so I can mix and match colors. I love this for a lighter base that gives an amazing glow and an SPF 20.

Hourglass Fluid Veil - I use this on most of my clients to give a flawless almost airbrushed look to their skin.

Alison Raffaele Transparent Finish Loose Powder - I love this powder for it's light and luminous finish. I use this to set foundation and make it last.

Cargo blusher in Catalina - this is my favorite blush color, it looks good on everyone and gives that just got back from the beach flush.

Tarte Mineral Powder Bronzer in Hotel Heiress - to get a bronzey shimmery glow all over for evenings, this is the bronzer to reach for.

Benefit Hoola Bronzer - for more of a daytime look or for the boys (sssh) I use this matte bronzer that is never too orange, just looks like you've been on vacation.

Christian Dior Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil in Trinidad Black - this pencil is a true deep black and it lasts! The basis for most evening eye makeup starts with this.

Christian Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in Incognito - the perfect set of neutrals in matte and shimmer shades that can take you from day to night in an instant.

Estee Lauder Sumptous Mascara in Black - a mascara that gives the sparsest lashes the full and feathery look.

Guerlain Cupidon Lip Pencil - I use this on almost everyone to highlight their cupids bow and make lips look fuller.

Lipstick Queen Medieval Lip Treatment - an amazing red stain with a slight sheen that makes lips look naturally bee stung.
