Makeup Artists Always Use These 15 Products on Celebs, and They're on Sale

There's nothing that kicks our beauty-loving heartbeat into overdrive like an amazing sale. Especially, when said sale involves one of our absolute favorite beauty retailers: Dermstore. It's that time of year, folks! From August 17 to 25, you can receive up to 25% site-wide on the majority of your favorite products and brands. At checkout, use the promo code CELEBRATE, and if you're part of the retailers' loyalty program, you can even earn double points on select brands while you stock up

Oh, and that's not the only amazing news. Dermstore also just re-launched its website with a sleek new design—further enhancing its commitment to skincare education, promoting awareness about dermatologist-backed brands, and championing indie labels in the category. The retailer is truly the best one-stop-shop for everything you need in terms of skincare, makeup, and haircare.

To provide you with some shopping guidance and because we're feeling rather celebratory and excited ourselves, we combed through the retailer's sale offerings for the cult-favorite skincare and makeup products we see our favorite celebrity makeup artists use over and over again on their A-list clientele. Ahead, 15 brands (and the top-notch products!) makeup artists are absolutely obsessed with. Keep scrolling.

Take a quick jaunt through Dubroff's celeb- and product-studded Instagram account, and it won't take long for you to spot the beloved skin-saving elixirs from Swiss skincare brand Weleda. 


The deal: 25% off

We know for a fact (thanks to our snooping eye on IG) that Dubroff loves the brand's Celestial Black Diamond and Rose Gold Lines. Her client Priyanka Chopra has admitted major love for this brightening sheet mask, in particular.

Dubroff isn't the minority here—almost every makeup artist, celebrity, and model say this cult-loved micellar water from French skincare fave Bioderma is an absolute essential for clear, beautiful skin.

A major beauty look doesn't stop at the face—Sir John has been candid about using this exact scrub-mask hybrid from Sol de Janeiro to prep his clients' bodies pre-red carpet and awards shows. 

Stila Cosmetics

The deal: 15% off

No one does glitter and shimmer better than Stila and the brand has a few cult favorites we spot time and time again in brimming makeup artist kists. These sparkling liquid eye shadows can't be beaten.


The deal: 25% off

As far as makeup tools go, we see Sir John use and post these epic brushes from Artis routinely. 

Celebrity Makeup Artist, Daniel Martin

Celebrity clients: Meghan Markle, Jessica Alba, Gemma Chan


The deal: 20% off

It's really more of a question of what makeup artist doesn't use (and swear by) the magical application benefits of this signature pink sponge. That said, it frequently makes an appearance on Martin's grid. 


The deal: 25% off

A makeup artist is never without an amazing makeup remover, and this soothing pick from French beauty beloved Klorane is a Martin's go-to according to our research. 

Joanna Vargas

The deal: 25% off

According to Martin's praise on Instagram, this exfoliating mask from celebrity esthetician Joanna Vargas is "WONDERFUL." Spoiler: We believe him. 

Celebrity Makeup Artist, Tobi Henney

Celebrity clients: Ashley Graham, Poppy Delevingne, Nina Agdal

Kevyn Aucoin

The deal: 25% off

Makeup artists across the board love and hoard all things Kevyn Aucoin (fitting, since the late makeup artist will be a forever icon in the industry), but one of the brand's recent Glass Glow launches has been a favorite in particular. We've spotted it on Henney's account in addition to other power players like Katie Jane Hughes

Skyn Iceland

The deal: 25% off

We've never seen a makeup artist not prep their A-list clientele with a soothing, de-puffing set of eye masks pre-event. Henney has remained loyal to this holy-grail pick from Skyn Iceland, and we've seen them on plenty of other A-list vanities as well. 


The deal: 20% off

When it comes to the most iconic face mists, Caudalíe's Beauty Elixir is by far top of the class. Makeup artists love spritzing it on their brushes and Beautyblenders and, of course, the famous canvases they artfully prep. 

Celebrity Makeup Artist, Jo Baker

Celebrity clients: Lucy Boynton, Eiza González, Yara Shahidi

Koh Gen Do

The deal: 25% off

It's unanimous—makeup artists swear by cult-loved Japanese brand Koh Gen Do, and its foundation formulas (in particular) are SO good that they've been the go-to on movie sets for years. (It's also what the lead makeup artist for award shows like the Oscars and Grammys keeps on hand for touch-ups.)

Lime Crime

The deal: 25% off

In all honesty, we don't see too many celebrity makeup artists using clean makeup formulas simply because they typically don't endure as well as their non-clean counterparts. Sad, but true. That said, Lime Crime is vegan, clean, certified cruelty-free, and well-known among the beauty set for its gorgeous, pigment-packed formulas. We've seen a smattering of products on Baker's grid, but she seems to favor the brand's palettes. 


The deal: 25% off

This Italian beauty brand might not be as well known stateside, but plenty of makeup artists keep it tucked in their back pockets. We've spotted the luxe brand's skin offerings on the primping tabletops displayed in numerous posts from Baker.
