As a professional makeup artist and BELLA beauty correspondent, I love sharing product knowledge and great beauty products with my fellow BELLAs. Here are my top five must-haves along with some helpful tips that have been game-changers with clients and myself. Spring into the season by adding these amazing products to your skin and makeup bag.

Tatcha The Silk Cream

This moisturizer is a hydrating gel cream made with Japanese superfoods. It restores the texture of your skin, leaving your face feeling and looking smoother, brighter, and softer. If you have combination or dry skin, this product is for you—you can thank me later!

TIP: There’s never a wrong time to moisturize; in the morning, during the day, and at night, take care of that beautiful face and neck.

Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Dewy Liquid Blush

A little goes a long way with Rare Beauty cream products. Not only is this one easy to blend and not sticky, but the finish feels like velvet on your skin. These products are good for dry, normal, and combination skin types. I highly recommend you adding these to your makeup bag as soon as possible. Never underestimate the power of a good blush to brighten up your face and mood!

TIP: If you’re going for a more natural, radiant glow, apply the cream blush under your foundation.

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder

You did not just take all that time on glamming yourself up and not set your makeup! This is a must-have whether you are a makeup artist or a makeup lover. It’s great for all skin types, and it’ll give you the finish you’ve been waiting for: It minimizes the appearance of pores and imperfections, and for all my more mature BELLAs, it locks in concealer under your eyes without showing any fine lines.

TIP: When applying a setting powder, focus on the middle of your face, especially the t-zone area and under eyes, working your way outward by tapping gently, not stroking your brush.

Makeup by Mario SurrealSkin Liquid Foundation

Makeup by Mario foundation does what it needs to do! Not only is it long lasting, but it’s easy to build on, and the finish is to die for. Your foundation is supposed to cover your imperfections while making you look ageless, and it does just that with its lightweight luminous formula.

TIP: A little goes a long way with this foundation. I highly recommend a good setting powder to lock in your look whether you are getting ready for work or a night out with your favorite BELLAs!

Propolis Bee Balm and Lip Mask

Who doesn’t love a good lip balm? The silky texture, combined with a sweet honey scent, will have your lips feeling silky smooth. Plus, the packaging is my favorite—it’s a small honey pot that comes with two honey dipper applicators. This versatile product can be used as a lip mask at night or a long-lasting lip gloss.

TIP: Apply a thin layer to your lips at bedtime. When you wake up the next morning, wash off any excess and notice how super soft and hydrated your lips feel.
