The Drugstore Products Makeup Artists Can't Live Without
Their clients are high-end, but the most transformative products in makeup artists' kits are budget. Each of these delivers. And none is over $8.
Face Secrets Ultra Wedges with Vitamin E
To fake an even, luminous complexion, makeup pros apply liquid foundation with a sponge—and they love these chunky wedges. The sharp edges make it easy to blend around the corners of the nose and right up to the lower lash line. Be sure to dampen the sponge first (another great use for the Evian spray), so it doesn't absorb too much of the foundation.
