Caudalie Instant Foaming Cleanser
"I recommend this cleanser to all of my clients because it removes makeup gently without irritating even the most sensitive skin types. Trust me: I have very sensitive skin myself, and I use it every day."

La Mer The Concentrate
"If I received a gift certificate during the holiday season, I’d put it toward a bottle of this concentrate. It’s my secret to soothing dryness, and boosting dew-y-ness."

Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base
"One of the questions I was asked most in 2017 was how I make makeup actually last. I love using this moisturizing primer before I apply foundation because it creates a hydrated base to keep my base looking amazing all day (seriously!)."

NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation
"These days it’s possible to get everything you want out of one foundation. This medium to full coverage formula is very versatile. Set it with a translucent powder to get fuller coverage. But if you want a radiant finish, simply don’t set it."

Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Aqua Foundation Illuminator
"The glow-y skin trend isn’t going anywhere — and one of my favorite products to achieve that natural-looking radiance is Koh Gen Do’s illuminator. I actually do not like to wear a lot of makeup so I just apply this on the peaks of my face. Everyone stops me on the street and tells me how flawless my skin is! If you prefer more coverage, mix a drop of it in your foundation."

Kylie Cosmetics Lipstick
"These highly sought after lipsticks are a must-have for your makeup bag this year!"

KKW Beauty Ultralight Beams Duo
"The new trend of 2018 is going to be glossy lids. Apply the loose powder on lids, then top it with the complimentary gloss."

Morphe Sculpt and Define Set
"Because brushes eventually lose their touch, I often change mine out. I absolutely love Morphe brushes because they are high-quality for an affordable price. This kit in particular is great because it is compact and comes with a bag, which is essential for those who travel frequently."
