💋 Tips and Tricks from my amazing makeup artist Rachel Pagan 💋
I’ve listed all the products Rachel loves to use below, plus she shares why these are her faves!
Smashbox eye primer– As a base for all over, to keep the eye makeup from creasing and for an all day lasting look.
Too Faced Chocolate bar eye shadow palette– This palette is a great go to collection of shadows that warm up the eye area without over doing it. They have a variety of neutrals, golds, plums, browns and they smell like chocolate!!
Mac Teddy eye liner– I’ve been using this eye kohl for years now. It is easy to apply and easy to manipulate. I love to add this eyeliner when doing a soft smokey eye for daytime. If you want to add more drama without committing to a black kohl, you can always line the eye with Teddy and then go over it with a black shadow and angel brush.
Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin enhancer (#1)– This product is so versatile, and can be used as concealer, foundation a highlighter or contour. Honey is one of the main components which is very healing for the skin. “Formulated with jojoba oil, honey, and minerals in order to hydrate and create the ultimate soft, dewy complexion. Transfer resistant. Long wearing. Sweat Proof. Perfect for all skin types”
Jane Iredale In Touch cream blush (Chemistry)– This is one of my staple products in my kit! I love using a cream blush before I powder and set the makeup. This is a cream to powder blush stick leaving a flawless flushed look tot the skin.
Too Faced Primed and Poreless powder– This powder is great to set the makeup without adding any extra weight to skin. Anastatia Brow Wiz (sofy brown)
Anastatia Brow Wiz (soft brown) – This brow pencil is perfect for filling in brows, while still keeping the natural shape. This color is perfect for warm brunettes and redheads.
Kevyn Aucoin voluminuzing mascara – The best mascara out there! This mascara has building fibers that create a voluminous lash without the appearance of clumps. This mascara does not flake!!!
Ardell short and medium flare individual lashes– These lashes are great for creating a custom lash that looks natural, perfect for all occasion.
Too Faced Melted Chocolate– (chocolate milkshake) This lip color is absolutely beautiful of most skin tones. The warm undertone is perfect for a daytime and everyday lip color. Again, the chocolate scent is addicting and the wear on this lipstick is long lasting with a velvet finish.
Kevyn Aucoin lip gloss in Tulapina – What I love about the Kevyn Aucoin lipgloss is that it’s not overly sticky but adds just enough shine to the lips.
Kevyn Aucoin highlighters– (“Candlelight” and “Starlight” Both beautiful highlighters that create a soft and natural glow without being obviously that there is product on the face. I love to apply these highlighters on the bridge of the nose, inner eye and on the top of cheekbones.
Benefit high beam highlighter – Another pretty cream highlighter that can be blended into the foundation or applied on top before any powder added.
