It can take a lot of the right makeup to look better than natural on camera. One of my favorite pitstops to see what makeup artist pros use in their kits is The Makeup Show by The Powder Group trade show for beauty gurus.
These may not be makeup brands that you see advertised in the pages of magazines, but are the brands used on many the models.
Take a peek at some of my Top 10 latest and tried and true pro makeup goodies from The Makeup Show and consider adding some to your personal makeup kit.
What I couldn’t resist picking up at The Makeup Show:
1) Kryolan Dermacolor Mini 16-Shade Concealer Palette- Is a staple in many a makeup artist kit for mixing and matching the perfect shade and dimension of undereye concealer. I like the one with pink undertones from Alcone and couldn’t resist picking a palette at The Makeup Show. Check our more Kryolan pro products on Amazon.
2) The Kevyn Aucoin booth is one of my favorites. Kevyn Aucoin The Sensual Skin Enhancer Foundation will conceal the most wretched dark under eye circles, like mine. I like the shade SX 09 with the peachy undertone the best. You can get it online at Barney’s here.
3) Also from Kevin Aucoin is The Creamy Glow -in Tresbelle- as a rich pigment, dewy blush that stays on. You can find that at Nordstrom
4) Skindinavia 10 Years Younger Makeup Finish- You know that I’ve used this makeup finish spray that sets your makeup with a natural glow,and love it for long hauls, so I couldn’t resist picking up another one. Available at beauty.com
