Have you ever wondered what's in a makeup artist's makeup bag? Well, it's safe to say that it's probably a combination of eye shadows, eyeliners, eye brow pencils, mascaras, foundations, blushes, lipsticks, and bronzers. However, it really comes down to the brand and the quality of the makeup that's the biggest difference in what a professional MUA has versus an everyday beauty lover. 

Kate Lee, a Chanel makeup artist, has been working alongside the brand for over 17 years. Over that time, she's worked on the faces of some of the biggest names in Hollywood, such as Anne Hathaway, Kaitlyn Dever, Emma Chamberlain, Charli D'Amelio, and other beloved celebrities to create jaw-dropping looks for award shows, television appearances, and red carpets

To get the latest scoop on the best makeup products you should buy from Chanel, Lee shared some of her favorites from over the years and why she doesn't leave home without them.
