Textures that won't float from spotlights, and pigments that won't be eaten by the camera. The BeautyHack collection contains the favorite tools of makeup artists. They have been tested for durability!
Ultimate Coverage Complexion Cream, Becca, and Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation
“I love both for their exceptional durability - you don't have to worry about the model's makeup throughout the shoot - and for the opacity that easily varies from medium to heavy. They can be used very quickly, adding more tone under the eyes or on problem areas if necessary. The perfect tone in 2 minutes is the dream of any makeup artist."
Palette 12 Flash Color Case, Make Up For Ever
“Always in my case. These are twelve creamy pigments that can be mixed however you like. I often use them as a base for powdery eyeshadows, the color immediately becomes bright and saturated, and I apply over not only complementary colors, but also opposite ones. This makes the effect more interesting and the color more voluminous."
Elena Krygina's choice:
Shadow mousse Cream Crush, Kiko Milano
“Awesome, I just love them. I work a lot, I have all the shades in my work case. I apply it with my fingers to darken the color of the eyelashes, and blend it with a brush along the moving eyelid."
Choice of Natalia Vlasova:
Lime Crime Lipsticks
“Lime Crime are the leaders among lipsticks. By the way, they are universal - there are shades that are good not only on the lips, but also as an eyeshadow or even a highlighter."
Elena Motinova's choice:
Foundation Double Wear, Estée Lauder
“The Double Wear glass bottle is my main backstage assistant. The product does not spoil the skin, lasts 24 hours and is easily shaded to a very thin layer. The Double Wear foundation is universal - suitable for every girl, regardless of skin type and color. Now in Russia there are 12 shades available, adapted for our girls - we took this choice very carefully! Even for pale skin, there are several options for you to find "yours". The most popular shade is Ecru, there is a gentle Pure Beige and Ivory Nude."
Tim Leo's Choice:
“Favorite cream of all makeup artists. Initially, 67 years ago, it was created for medical purposes - to heal stitches after surgery (it also saved my burnt skin in Thailand). But then makeup artists tried Embryolisse and noticed that cosmetics did not slip with it, so it became an ideal base for decorative cosmetics. After it, you don't need special primers, you can apply the tone with peace of mind."
Foundation Luminous Silk, Giorgio Armani
“Luminous Silk is loved by all makeup artists - a universal foundation suitable for all skin types. It is like a fluid: it creates a velvet coating that is invisible on the face, it contains elastic transparent Micro-fil spheres. At the same time it evens out the tone well, masks the flaws."
Highlighter Cream Color Base, shades Luna and Pearl, MAC
“I love the Luna shade because it's white, making it the perfect highlighter for fair-skinned girls. It is loved by photographers for the "correct" glow. The shade of Pearl is golden and will accentuate your tan."
Eyeliner Aqua XL, Make Up For Ever
“If I want a rich color, then I always work with pencils. Make Up For Ever has Aqua XL - pigmented and waterproof. Wash off with hydrophilic oil or two-phase make-up remover."
The choice of Ekaterina Ponomareva:
Moisturizing cream with the effect of radiance Strobe Cream, MAC
“My favorite moisturizer! Its composition has not changed since 2000, because it is perfect: the grape extract brightens the skin, and the nacre particles visually smooth the surface and give a natural glow. Strobe Cream is suitable for all skin types, which is why it is so convenient to use backstage with dozens of models."
Primer Prep + Prime Skin, MAC
“It will help“not to shine”all day - it well controls the secretion of the sebaceous glands and evens the skin surface. The composition contains all the same algae and optical "diffusers" as in Complete Comfort Cream. They masterfully hide imperfections in the skin, you need less foundation or powder."
Thermal water Fix + Thermal Water, MAC
“This thermal water does not spoil the makeup, but" shrinks "it on the face. I spray it on the skin of the models to increase the brightness of the products. Caffeine and green tea literally "invigorate" the skin: relieve redness and irritation, refresh well in the middle of the day. The moisturizing ingredients work like a nourishing lotion."
Foundation for face and body Face & Body Foundation, MAC
“Favorite cream of makeup artists behind the scenes of Fashion Week. Face & Body has a water base, which makes it easy to apply with your fingers. The coating is thin but durable, and the texture is like a satin fabric. Face & Body should be known to every beautician - this foundation does not dry out the skin, lays flat, does not require adjustment during the day and is barely felt."
Mower Palette Studio Finish Pro Concealer And Correct Palette, MAC
“My palette of dense concealers for all occasions. Dark circles under the eyes, bruises and even tattoos - I am ready to face any imperfections of clients and models. The palette contains six colors, from refreshing pink to milk chocolate."
Choice of Olga Charandaeva:
Patches Hydro-Gel Eye Patch Gold By Natalia Vlasova, Mosmake
“These patches on the plane are used by the whole team when we fly to the shooting. They can be glued not only under the eyes, but all over the face. They soothe, nourish, moisturize. And during shooting, I wear them even over foundation - in 15-20 minutes they refresh the look, the skin around the eyes is well-groomed. Once I recommended them to Philip Kirkorov - he still uses them!"
Eyeliner Primatif, Basic Black, Kevyn Aucoin
“The pencil is very resistant: it does not flow from spotlights during filming. The soft lead glides smoothly over the eyelid, with it you can make both a clear arrow and a shaded one."
Irina Mitroshkina's choice:
Primer Photo Finish Primer Oil, Smashbox
“In most cases, perfect for everyone - that's why I love him. Before applying, I mix it with foundation. The primer is made on the basis of a complex of 15 oils and prevents the foundation from drying out the skin. You can also use it alone: apply a couple of drops on a clean face in the morning and evening."
Highlighter Shimmering Skin Perfector, Becca
“I always recommend taking it with you on vacation. This product can be applied not only to the face, but also to the body - the radiance effect on tanned skin looks amazing. Hollywood stars very often trust this tool with their image on the red carpet. Easy to apply with your fingers. This is the best liquid highlighter for me."
Cream eyeliner Pro Longwear Fluidline, Blacktrack, MAC
“For black arrows, it is always used. The cream pigment is instantly fixed. For thin arrows, use a small beveled brush. If necessary, it can be used as an eye shadow - shades well, ideal for smoky eyes."
Eyeshadow Palette Naked, Urban Decay
“This is a versatile palette that you can safely rely on - among the 12 shades you will always find those that will be appropriate for both daytime and evening looks. They are "eternal" - they can last more than a day (especially if applied to the brand base). Available in several textures: matte, satin, shimmery and sparkling."
Choice of Yuri Stolyarov:
Long-lasting foundation Super Stay 24, Maybelline New York
“A really long-lasting tone that's perfect for both filming and everyday life. The main thing is not to put it too tightly, and if it comes to natural make-up, dilute with primer or moisturizer."
Mascara Great Lash Blackest Black, Maybelline New York
“The legendary mascara, loved by many makeup artists, you will definitely see it at fashion shows. What's the secret? It's just mascara. Often we need just such an effect - natural eyelashes, well colored, without excess volume and lengthening. For such purposes, there is nothing better than this classic remedy. By the way, you can buy different brushes and experiment with this mascara."
Cream shadows Color Tattoo, Maybelline New York
“It's no secret that many makeup artists have these persistent creamy shadows in their cases, and I, of course, also use them constantly in my work. I advise you to apply with your fingertips - the coating is very natural and durable. In addition, some of the lighter shades of these eyeshadows can be used as a highlighter."
The choice of Andrey Shilkov:
Touche Eclat Blur Primer, YSL
“The primer has won the hearts of my clients forever. Not only is it beautiful, but also with gold, and it works for 100%! It is a transparent gel that improves the appearance of the skin. The product creates an effect of noble shine and prolongs the life of the make-up."
Choice of Anna Merkusheva:
Pencil Filler Lip Line Perfector, Make Up For Ever
"Transparent" magician "for lips of any shade! I apply it over the entire surface to fill in raised or aged lips (wrinkles are filled in and the capricious matte lipstick lays down smoothly). This pencil works like a primer - it keeps the lipstick in a given shape. Even liquid textures do not flow. I am for comfort in everything - Lip Line Perfector envelops lips with a moisturizing layer so that no dry lipstick will cause discomfort."
The choice of Sergei Naumov:
Lipstick Rouge Allure Velvet, Chanel
“If I want a velvety texture, these lipsticks are the preferred choice. I like that they are matte, like coal. It's easy to work with them."
Pencil Perfect Brow Pencil, Anastasia Beverly Hills
“The double-sided pencil has a soft lead - it’s convenient to draw fine lines. I love it because it doesn't glare in the frame. The second part is a spiral pencil that can be used to shape the eyebrows."
Shadow Longwear Paint Pots, MAC
“These are super resistant makeup paints. Creamy pigments can be spread with your fingers - very easy to apply. Use as a base for dry eyeshadow. They do not roll and hold up to 15 hours."
Choice of Alexandra Kirienko:
Sponge beautyblender, beautyblender
“No makeup is complete without this sponge! I love that with it you can apply any product in a thin layer. Helps to remove excess tone and powder. Layering the tone with a flat brush, at the end I "slap" it with a beauty blender."
