After makeup artist Shauna O'Toole gave us the beauty breakdown on Diora Baird on the set of FunnyorDie, we got the chance to peek into her stash of favorite makeup products. Shauna studied Cinematic Makeup Design at Delamar Academy in London and now works as a freelance makeup artist in sunny Los Angeles. Keep reading to see which products Shauna loves right now!
Alicia Silverstone turned me onto her line of Ecotools brushes--they are AMAZING and now occupy a large space in my brush kit. I own nearly every brand of cosmetic brushes and this is by far one of my favorites. Very affordable and earth-friendly--can you beat that?
The best highlighter around is the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Radiant Touch. This luminizing pen will add eight hours of sleep to your face and make you look radiant! All eight colors are worth having in your kit. It's a definite must have! I use this product on all of my celebrity clients and it's so beautiful--like silk!
Lancome foundations never cease to amaze me since the coverage is wonderful. Armani Luminous Silk Foundation looks flawless and beautiful on all skin types. Laura Mercier's foundations are also fantastic and blend smoothly with any and every makeup base or primer.
A dear friend and client of mine recently introduced me to Laura Mercier's Secret Brightening Powder. This powder literally lifts all the colors in any foundation. It's clean and has a tint of shimmer which looks lovely on everyone. Make Up For Ever has created the ultimate translucent powder in their HD line--in fact, their entire High Definition line is quite incredible!
I always Use La Mer's Lip Balm since it's perfect in all ways. I collect Lancome's Juicy Tubes, especially the color 'Touched By Light'--it's the perfect mixer for lip color. However, for a more affordable version, one can never go wrong with Aquaphor Lip Balm.
