from vogue online, here are makeup artist's top 10 beauty essentials.

Kérastase Mousse Nutri-Sculpt and Kérastase Sérum Nutri-Sculpt:

Luigi Murenu's recipe for sumptuous looking hair.

Mason Pearson Brush in Baby Blue:

Quirkier than its tortoise-shell predecessor.

Bumble and Bumble Hair Powder:

Stylist Jimmy Paul's saving grace backstage.

Ziploc Bags:

Sheer utility.

L'Oreal Glam Shine in Prima Donna:

This is one of James Kaliardos's favorite glosses. "Richard Avedon taught me about the importance of using pinky-nude lip color, as opposed to a flat-looking nude—those can look android-ish."

Bungee Hair Elastics:

Stylist Ted Gibson never leaves for a show without packing these hair-friendly bands that restrain without damage.


"It not only helps the circulation and reduces redness," says stylist Tom Pecheux, "but it also gets any makeup to go on smoother. I promise! Seriously, every woman should take a minute in the morning and massage her face."

Bobbi Brown Extra Moisturizing Balm:

A fresh-smelling, ultra-luxe balm preferred by makeup artists such as Val Garland

Jane Iredale Cream to Powder Eyeliner in Jewel Box:

Includes four of the season's must-have colors.

Lancôme Poudre Sôleil in Bronze Riche:

Gives faces a seasonably warm glow.
