Foundation, Concealer, & Tinted Moisturizer recommendations:
Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter - This is my holy grail no matter what makeup look I'm doing from super natural day glam to evening full glam. It can be used in many ways such as a primer under your foundation, on its own, as a highlight, the list goes on. SO beautiful and in my opinion the best natural glow you can get.
Haus Labs Foundation - This formula is a medium coverage, weightless, clean foundation with fermented arnica that helps reduce redness and protects from environmental stress. Made with 20+ skincare ingredients, this proprietary formula delivers ultra-comfortable, longwear performance without compromising your skin.
Armani Luminous Silk Foundation - Cult classic and works well with all skin types! This is what I wore on my wedding day which did not move all day! I love that it's an oil-free foundation that delivers buildable, medium coverage and a luminous, glowy-skin finish.
Summer Friday Skin Tint - This is my new current favourite right now and if you're looking for an everday lightweight titned moiturizer with SPF, this ones a winner! I love that this formula has tiger grass which helps soothe the skin and reduce the look of redness. I have a little bit of rosacea in my cheeks so I like that this helps sooth and cover any redness in my skin.
Tarte Shape Tape - This concealer is a staple in my kit and for good reason. It's a full-coverage formula that delivers up to 16 hours of wear, smoothing and brightening for lifted-looking eyes.
Hourglass Vanish Concealer - If shape tape is too drying for you, then this ones for you. The Hourglass vanish concealer is a weightless, and waterproof formula with microspherical powders that blurs and brightens for up to 16 hours of skin perfection.
Supergoop! - I've been using their glowscreen SPF 40 when I'm not wearing any makeup and I'm obsessed! I love that they have so many different formulas of SPF, from oil, to lotion, to powder, theres a formula for everyone.
Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Hydrating Makeup Primer - I'm not a big fan of primer if I'm being honest but I gave this one a try for all my combination skin clients and I can confidently say this one is worth it. It has the benefits of silicone primer without the silicone. It's an oil-free, aloe water-based primer that goes on clear to create a smooth base for makeup, while keeping your skin dewy and makeup long-lasting. This has earned my stamp of approval.
Charlotte Tilbury Cream Magic Cream - Literally magic in a bottle. This moisturizer is a staple when I'm doing makeup on myself and clients. This will leave your skin looking hydrated, glowing and plump.
Tatcha Water Cream Moisturizer - Anything Tatcha you honestly can't go wrong. I love how gentle, soothing, and lightweight their products are on the skin. If you don't like a thick moisturizer than this cream is for you!
Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Eye Base - All-in-one moisturizer for the under eyes thats perfect for makeup application. It's hydrating, nourishing, and plumping while acting as a primer for concealer.
Paula's Choice BHA Liquid Exfoliant - Canadians can finally get their hands on this products and I highly recommend to try this out! This gentle leave-on exfoliant with salicylic acid quickly unclogs pores, smooths wrinkles, brightens and evens out skin tone.
Ren Skincare Perfect Canvas Clean Jelly Oil Cleanser - I use this as my first step cleanse to breakdown any makeup and spf at the end of the day. I apply this directly to my skin, dry, and massage it in before I add any water to my face(the cleanser will then turn into a milky solution). It's great for all skin types and helps target pollution, pores, dryness, and blemishes.
Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask - I love this mask whenever I'm on the go or travelling. It nourishes, hydrates, and calms your skin with niacinamide, glycerin, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants.
Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Daily Peel - Can't make it to the spa, no problem! This 2-step AHA/BHA peel-pad is great for both dry and oily skin types and helps reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, pores, and texture. Trust me when I say you will visibly notice a difference after just one use!
