KEVYN AUCOIN The Essential Eyeshadow Set / KEVYN AUCOIN Expert Mascara / KEVYN AUCOIN Expert Lip Color

Kevyn Aucoin‘s Smokey Nude Eyeshadow Palette is the absolute best for this season. The hues are rich, yet not heavy and blend beautifully for even the most novice makeup person.”

TATCHA Luminous Deep Hydration Lifting Mask

“After the holiday season, if you’re looking for a quick fix to create a radiant glow, one of the best things to use is the Tatcha Luminous Deep Hydration Lifting Mask. This thin cloth mask gives an instant boost to the skin after only 15 minutes, so you can instantly feel like a new person after you see the results.”


ZELENS Active Concealer

“Feeling tired this time of year? If you thought it was impossible to cover those dark circles, for a fuller coverage I recommend Zelens Active Concealer. With only three shades to pick from, it’s easy to find the one that’s right for you, and the coverage is perfection. It will cover any darkness while the active ingredients give a glow to the skin.”

CLÉ DE PEAU BEAUTÉ Radiant Cream Foundation

“For flawless skin, the people at Clé De Peau have truly outdone themselves with their new Radiant Cream Foundation. By expanding the range of colors to fit more skin tones, they have mastered seamless full-coverage foundation with a formula that never looks heavy.”

3LAB WW Day SPF 40

“Looking for a product that’s a true multitasker? You can’t start off your day with anything better than a daily dose of 3LAB‘s new WW Day cream. It not only adds the perfect level of moisture to your skin, but also primes the skin for makeup and even provides SPF 40. It’s remarkable!”

ORIBE Dry Texturizing Spray

“Whether your hair is thin or thick, it’s always a good idea to give it a little extra pump. Oribe’s Dry Texturizing Spray does just the trick. It’s a true hero product for me and for so many others.”

Resident makeup artist at our Madison Avenue flagship in New York, Jason Ascher.

TRUE BOTANICALS Pure Radiance Oil / TRUE BOTANICALS Cellular Repair Serum / TRUE BOTANICALS Vitamin C Booster / RÉVIVE Le Tint Moisturizing Veil

“The sheer, ultra-hydrating tint of RéVive’s LE TINT Moisturizing Veil has become a new favorite—it corrects and refines skin tone without looking like foundation. Its finish is dewy and completely natural.”

LILAH B Aglow Face Mist / LILAH B Bronzed Beauty Bronzer Duo / LILAH B Divine Duo Lip & Cheek / ZELENS Transformer Instant Renewal Mask

“Much more than just a misting toner, Lilah B’s Aglow Face Mist actually sets your makeup and imparts a soft, natural finish to any look—without any stickiness. It’s also great for making you feel refreshed any time of day.”

TATCHA Kyoto Red Lipstick / TATCHA Indigo Smoothing Black Sugar Body Gommage / TATCHA Soothing Rice Enzyme Powder / TATCHA Indigo Soothing Triple Recovery Cream

“Inspired by the shade of red favored by Geisha, Tatcha’s Kyoto Red Lipstick is the perfect pop-red—bright and striking. It stays red without fading to pink, and the color wears for hours.”

SUNDAY RILEY Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream

“My new must-have moisturizer comes from Sunday Riley. Her Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream is a water-based gel hydrator that firms, calms, and leaves skin glowing, not greasy. It’s perfect under makeup and on top of your favorite serum or SPF. Plus, the cucumber-rich scent is totally reviving.”

SURRATT Surreal Skin Foundation Wand / NARS Audacious Lipstick

“With Surratt‘s incredible wand, your foundation is delivered directly into an artist-quality wedged foundation brush. The shades are true, and the finish is medium to full. Easy to keep in your bag for quick touch-ups, it can also be paired with a slightly lighter shade to create soft areas of light on the top of the cheekbone or at the jawline for a red-carpet finish.”


“Chanel’s sheer, hydrating Coco Shine Noir Moderne is the perfect seasonal shade of brown-berry—depth without the commitment of full-coverage lipstick.”
