18 HOLY-GRAIL PRODUCTS CELEBRITY MAKEUP ARTISTS USE ON THEMSELVES

Published by Byrdie by Lindsey Metrus

We constantly ask makeup artists which products we should use to make our overall look more flawless or which methods we should definitely, absolutely quit doing, but there's uncharted territory we don't cross into often enough: the makeup products they use on themselves.

Celebrity makeup artists are constantly teaming up with different brands and using their products for fashion shows and red carpet looks or sifting through a suitcase full of products to try on clients. While these makeup artists surely have their favorites that they keep revisiting, it's the holy-grail products they personally use get placed on a pedestal. As such, we asked some top makeup artists which products have taken up permanent residency in their makeup bags.

Walsh, who is the lead makeup artist for MTV's Scream, uses Amarte on the show's cast during filming and also for her go-to everyday skincare routine: "Whether it's in the studio or on the street, Amarte is the only choice when it comes to creating perfect skin in every climate across the globe. I use the Amarte Natural Finish BB Cream every day. I also layer Amarte Aqua Lotion and Amarte Ultra Veil Sunscreen on the Scream cast to keep skin balanced and protected when filming in swampy Louisiana climates," she says.
