Keep scrolling.

Celebrity Makeup Artist, Rachel Goodwin

Celebrity clients: Emma Stone, Winnie Harlow, Cindy Crawford, January Jones


Winter is here, which means it's time for some metallic eyeliner. Looks like Goodwin agrees, except it seems she's not afraid to bust out this Milk Makeup option all year round.

We're always down for a good color-flushed lid, and according to Goodwin, these liquid shadows by Kosas are the real MVP. We love this set of three for gifting, and also for keeping all to ourselves.

This vivid eyeliner by Pat McGrath Labs is an artist and editor favorite, so we weren't surprised one bit to see Goodwin using it over and over again. 

We love seeing skincare picks from our favorite makeup artists. After all, they know exactly which products play nicely under makeup. (Seriously, is there anything worse than pilling?) We saw Goodwin call out this hydrating serum from Drunk Elephant, so we'll be adding it to our kits, too.

When it comes to primers, this one by Tatcha is hard to beat. It's silky-smooth and creates a blurring effect on the skin so makeup just glides right over it. Goodwin knows what's up.

This Hourglass brow pencil is long-time a makeup artist favorite, so we're not at all surprised to have seen it pop up on Goodwin's feed.

Celebrity Makeup Artist Mai Quynh

Celebrity clients: Awkwafina, Chloe Grace Moretz, Jessica Chastain, Thandie Newton


It's clear from her Instagram feed that Quynh stans all things Pat McGrath. We spotted these high-sheen glosses a few times while scrolling her feed, and we love this set of minis for gifting this holiday season. 

The Pat McGrath love continues with this foursome of out-of-this-world shades. We'd love to know exactly which one of Quynh's starlet clients rocked these killer shades.

Did we already mention that Quynh loves Pat McGrath? Well, here's exhibit three. Our editors tested this foundation formula, too, and the general consensus was that this stuff is like an Instagram filter in a bottle. Add to cart.

That's right, even more love for Mother. We spotted Quynh applying a peachy-hue from the range onto the pout Chloe Grace Moretz, and we're almost certain this is the one. It's just perfect.

Quynh isn't the only artist we know of who swears by Koh Gen Do's Cleansing Spa Water. In fact, the botanical elixir is an editor favorite as well and celebrated for its gentle cleansing abilities. 

The brand's setting powder is another repeat in Quynh's kit. 

We're big fans of this gentle, lightweight moisturizing formula by Kiehl's, so spotting it in Quynh's kit was a pleasant surprise. We'll never miss an opportunity to stock up.

Celebrity Hairstylist Mark Townsend

Celebrity clients: Elizabeth Banks, Dakota Johnson, Mary-Kate Olsen, Ashley Olsen

No one likes split ends, and especially not a star who's about to face flashing lights on the red carpet. It looks like this is the go-to serum that keeps Townsend's clients' coifs smooth and shiny.

If Townsend is quickly covering grays on any of this A-list clients, we can't tell. And judging by the countless times we saw this teal can pop up in his kit, it looks like this color touch-up spray is the key to seamlessly blended roots.

Not only do these fast-wicking hair towels cut drying time in half, but they prevent breakage and help your strands dry with way less frizz. We're fans, and according to his Instagram posts, so in Townsend.

Celebrity Hairstylist Lacy Redway

Celebrity clients: Tessa Thompson, Tracee Ellis Ross, Zazie Beetz, Laura Harrier

This featherweight hairdryer is lauded as one of the very best on the market, and catching glimpses of celebrity stylists using it has become a common occurrence. It costs a pretty penny, though, so this opportunity to get it at a lower price is a huge deal. We weren't at all surprised to see this little baby pop up a number of times on Redway's feed, and we were super impressed to see it in action on coiled hair, straight hair, and every gorgeous texture in between. 

Celebrity Facialist Georgia Louise

Celebrity clients: Jennifer Aniston, Hailey Bieber, Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway

We spotted this little gem by Dr. Barbara Sturm on Louise's vanity in this shot, where she gave a rundown of her favorite products for brightening and repairing the skin during the whirlwind that is fashion week. If you've been eyeing this pricey serum yourself, consider this the perfect time to take the plunge.

It's no secret that Louise loves La Mer–after all, she's a global skincare advisor for the brand. Of this particular product, Louise said in a post, "It’s super silky hydration in a bottle that supercharges all of your beautiful serums deeper into the skin!" That stamp of approval goes a long way in or book.

This little jar of heaven is the one product that put La Mer on the map, and for good reason. It's a super luxurious moisturizer that promises hydrated, happy skin. Louise agrees, as do countless celebrity fans like J. Lo and Kate Hudson.

Celebrity Facialist Shani Darden

Celebrity clients: Jessica Alba, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Shay Mitchell, Chrissy Teigen

If you've been following Darden for a while, then you know her love for these exfoliating pads by Dr. Dennis Gross runs deep. She's never not raving about them, and quite honestly, we understand why. They instantly reveal brighter, refreshed skin.

This is a newer drop by the dermatologist-developed brand, and Darden is already a fan. The soothing hyaluronic marine gel mask molds to your face, and instantly delivers cooling hydration that leaves the skin visibly plumped. Simply put, it'll take your at-home facial game to the next level.

Another one of Darden's favorite things? Sunscreen. She can't get enough of this one by Supergoop!, and neither can we.

Here's yet another Supergoop! option we've seen gracing the skincare guru's timeline time and time again. We like this classic formula because it's not greasy and it looks invisible on all skin tones.

If you're down to use this opportunity to splurge on a big ticket item, this is a good one to consider. Darden shared in an Instagram post that this at-home microcurrent device is perfect for perking up tired eyes. 

Up next, the exact products hairstylists use on celeb clients for ridiculously shiny hair.
