From the glowy foundation I wear every day to pretty lipstick colors that are on constant rotation, Chanel is a brand that is heavily stocked in my beauty drawer. Over the years, I’ve discovered plenty of products by trying them at the beauty counter, getting recommendations from friends, or test-driving the new Chanel launches that have everyone talking.

For the most in-the-know recommendations in the game, though, I’m turning to Chanel makeup artists who work with the biggest A-list talent and know the best of the best. After all, they have access to everything in the Chanel beauty world and know exactly which products translate on the red carpet.

Ahead, see which ones made the cut, including a few cult items like the undereye masks, mascara, and highlighting stick that are so good they were recommended multiple times.
