We have exciting news! This post is the first of many in our new series “What’s in Their Bag?” Once a month we will take a deep dive into our artists most prized possession…their kits. Because we don’t want to write an encyclopedia sized post every month, we will share each artists top 3 items they never leave the house without.
First artist up? Christine!
Christine has a lot of favorites and go-to’s but one that stuck out is her skin prep kit. She never goes on a job without her bag of skin prep items. According to Christine, having a properly prepped face is the most important step of a makeup application.
As you all know I love natural, soft , dewy skin. When your skin is prepped correctly before makeup you will not need as much makeup to “fix” any given skin situation allowing an opportunity for your natural flawless glowing skin to shine through.
Here are the items Christine insists are must haves in all skin prep kits:
1. Bioderma Micellar Water
First and foremost, Christine starts with Bioderma Micellar Water. Bioderma Micellar water boasts its ability to remove your makeup while being gentle enough to respect how fragile your face can be. It’s great for sensitive/normal skin. It does it all and doesn’t strip your face of any of its healthy and essential oils. Great for end of the day before bed and for makeup prep. And it doesn’t break the bank!
It’s the best, most gentle makeup remover I’ve ever used. It gets everything off with little effort. It doesn’t leave any oily residue, no scent, or stinging. Never causes redness or irritation and helps create a nice clean canvas.
2. Nip + Fab Glycolic Daily Cleansing Pads
Nip + Fab has a large line of amazing skin products, but these Glyolic Daily Cleansing Pads are sent a fan fave. These little babies resurface, retexture and tone your skin all in one fell swoop (talk about a miracle worker). Christine loves these because they help hydrate, smooth, exfoliate and tone the skin for makeup application. They also reduce redness creating a perfect palette for makeup application.
3. Kiehls Ultra Facial Cream
Come on. It’s Kiehls. Everything Kiehls is amazing! This is a 24 hour moisturizer that also protects your skin from the elements, no matter the season. This stuff is literally sorcery in a bottle. It not only protects your face, but it also reduces moisture loss by gathering moisture from your environment. That means never ending moisture!
It’s so light never leaves a greasy feeing on the face. This cream really helps to hydrate the skin and leaves it smooth, soft and healthy looking.
Now, I don’t know about you guys but I’ve got to run to the store quick to grab all three of these items. Especially with winter approaching and my skin drying out by the minute! What are some of your kit staples? We’d love to know!
