My Makeup Artist’s Beauty Picks

Last week, Shannon O’Brien came over to do my makeup before filming a video for C1 Revolution. And I just so happened to have an event I was hosting at Allis the same night. Ok, so I planned the video shoot around the event so I’d look decent for both. While Shannon was here, I asked her for a few product recommendations since I was in need of a new foundation and eyeliner, and ordered a few of her favorites along with my own.

Here’s what I bought.

Charlotte Tillbury

Light Wonder Youth-Boosting Perfect Skin Foundation

    Wondering how you are liking the CT foundation? I'm tempted... I love Orgasm (!), and if you want something a bit pinker, Super Orgasm (!!) is a great option. Your blog reboot is lovely, by the way :)

    I use so many of these products and I love them too! She's right... That eyeliner will not smudge! I can only get it off with baby oil. Its great!
