Foundation with strobing effect, phyto-blushes and lip varnishes that do not eat. Former lead makeup artist of Yves Saint Laurent Maria Pyrenkova shared her findings in her cosmetic bag.
Independent makeup artist
She was a leading make-up artist for Yves Saint Laurent in Russia, worked with such stars as Ingrid Olerinskaya, Alexandra Bortich, Natalia Bardo, Ksenia Sukhinova, Irina Gorbacheva, Yulia Parshuta, Ekaterina Vilkova, Sasha Luss.
Moisturizing face cream Ultra Facial Cream, Kiehl's
Favorite classic moisturizer. Suitable for all skin types - not one of the clients has ever noticed an allergy to it. Convenient large volume.
Micellar water Eau Micellaire Douceur, Lancôme
The advantage of this water is that it is fragrance-free and odorless. After it there is no redness, the face remains clean and fresh.
Foundation with the effect of shine Le Teint Touche Éclat, Yves Saint Laurent
When this tool first appeared, it became revolutionary. Without silicones and at the same time completely merges with the skin (even if you were wrong with the shade). It becomes satin on the skin, creates a very beautiful healthy glow.
Concealer Erase Paste, shade 02, Benefit
I love the second shade - it suits everyone. It has a pinkish undertone, it gives the skin a rested look and well hides all redness and dark circles.
Blush stick Color Stick, shade Champagne, Cargo
The Color Stick is a creamy blush series, I use Champagne as my highlighter. The egg beige tone suits absolutely everyone and merges with the skin tone, giving it a moist glow. I apply directly from the stick - it's very convenient.
Blush Powder Blush, shade Taupe, NYX
An excellent budget tool for soft contouring. Pay attention to the shade - it's cool, natural and suitable for all skin tones.
Fitorumana Phyto-Blush, Sisley
Phyto-Blush has a very rare caring composition with rosehip, gardenia, mallow and linden extracts. Shades can be alternated or combined, and light can be used as a highlighter.
Set for eyebrow makeup Le Sourcil De Chanel Perfect Brows, Chanel
These are eternal shadows! Quite firm in texture, but shade well. What else do you need from an eyebrow product?
Palette Naked 2 Basics, Urban Decay
Not a single makeup can do without Basics palettes. Perfect matte tones, they can be used for nude makeup or for more intense smoky eyes. Naked 2 has a brownish gray shade that can be used in place of the sculptor. Light shining can be replaced with a highlighter.
Gel eyeliner Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner, Bobbi Brown
I'm a fan of gel eyeliners! They can draw any arrows. The only negative is that eyeliners in jars often dry out. But with Bobbi Brown, there is no such problem. This eyeliner stays flexible to the last drop. Very persistent, pigmented, I recommend it to everyone.
Mascara Perversion, Urban Decay
Rich, long-lasting, with a comfortable classic brush. If your lashes are thin, this mascara will not weigh them down, but at the same time will create a neat volume.
Lip varnish Vernis à Lèvres, shades 9 and 19, Yves Saint Laurent
These are the first varnishes in my practice that neither I myself nor my clients slip off. I talk a lot at work, so I need very long-lasting lip products. Yves Saint Laurent varnish even in your favorite scarlet shade lasts up to 8 hours! For every day, especially for blondes, I recommend a pink-beige tone 19. By the end of the day, pigment remains, which can be easily washed off with a two-phase product.
Lip oil Volupté Tint-in-Oil, Yves Saint Laurent
A very mild, nourishing oil with tint. The oil is quickly absorbed, the shade remains - a very delicate effect of kissed lips is obtained. The shine can be renewed during the day, or you can just leave the pigment.
