KARA KAMROWSKI, Makeup Artist
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion- This creates a smooth even surface for eyeshadow application. Prevents creasing and keeps the shadow in place all day.
Kett Airbrush Foundation- I love this foundation because it stays in place all day and looks flawless on any skin type. The Hydro Proof foundation is smudge proof, waterproof, which is essential for wedding makeup.
Kett Sett Powder- This powder is translucent and does not create any flashback in photographs.
RCMA Foundation- My new favorite concealer for under the eyes. I can mix shades to customize the color and it never looks dry or cakey under the eye.
Make Up Forever 5 Camouflage Crème Palette - I use the salmon and green shade to color correct any imperfections in the skin, like under eye circles or redness.
KIARA MOONEY, Hair Stylist & Makeup Artist
Hot Pink Tweezers & Lash glue - Not only do I use tweezers to apply lashes but they help with those stray brow hairs. One of my pet-peeves is having un-manicured brows at a photo shoot. The brows are the tools that define the eye and when properly manicured, can lift the lid, open the eye and transform the face overall. Lash glue is awesome for quick fixes on the go and adhering lashes to the eyes. Tweezerman Tweezers & Duo Lash Glue are my favorites for both.

Cinema Secrets Brush Cleaner - The best brush cleaner I have ever used. It helps disinfect, clean and conditions the brushes. It is made to increase the longevity of the brushes and offers the sweet scent of vanilla. (www.cinemasecrets.com)
Immaculate by Hourglass - This liquid to powder foundation I recently discovered and is fabulous at shoots or everyday wear. It is formulated to absorb oil and camouflage imperfections while delivering a long-lasting matte finish all day. The oil- free, humidity-proof, and water-resistant formula transforms instantly from liquid to powder creating an all-day finish and never looks dull or flat. Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation is infused with clinical levels of two powerful anti-aging ingredients—phytostem edelweiss and lavandox. In other words, it’s liquid magic!

Too Faced Better Than False Lashes - HELLO FABULOUS LASHES! I have found the solution to short, fine lashes thanks to this double formula that kicks butt! I love applying 2-3 coats of each formula to lengthen & fatten lashes. The name really says it all. (Sephora, online & in stores)
Make Up Forever Aqua Black - This waterproof formula lasts all day into the evening without smudging or running. The first time I used this was at an underwater shoot and the super long cat-eyeliner didnʼt budge an inch! I was amazed and instantly fell in love. My lids, like many clients, get oily during the day where it can cause the liner to smudge on the upper lid. Aqua Black will stay on all day and not move until you cleanse your face in the evening.

MAUREEN JAMAL, Makeup Artist
Bobbi Brown BBU Palette- this is my #1 MUST have! 20 shades of foundation, 13 shades of corrector, and 14 shades of concealer. Can be easily built up or sheered down depending on desired coverage.
MAC Fluidline Eye Liner Gel in Blacktrack- Easy to work with, goes on smoothly and stays in place.
NARS Orgasm Blush Powder- The Little Black Dress of blush.
The Balm NUDE’tude Palette- always my go-to.
Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel Moisturizing Bronzing Powder- always gives just the right amount of subtle glow.
Makeup forever full coverage creme de camouflage concealer - This is a great concealer for anyone who needs complete coverage. I use this on almost all of my brides. It’s waterproof and can be used under HD makeup as well.
Mehron Celebre HD pro cream makeup - This is my favorite foundation for photoshoots and tv. It oges on extemely smooth and the longevity of the product is fantastic. I love that this foundation doesn’t settle into the fine lines (especially around the eye area).
MAC Fast response eye cream - This is a caffeinated cream with almost instant effects. It de-puffs, erases the look of dark circles, firms softens and smooths skin around the eye area. A total must have (especially for early morning shoots/weddings).
Urban Decay eye shadow - In “Baked” - Awesome, bold, and super glittery, gold, eye shadow pigment. Great for the entire lid for a more dramatic look, or for a contour on a slightly more muted look.
Klorane makeup remover - I love this product bevause it’s great for all skin types. Even the most sensitive of people won’t react to this remover. The PH is idential to tears, which makes it great for cleaning up around the eyes wihtout having to rinse the area with water after.
