Painting the faces of celebrities including Kylie Jenner, Kim Kardashian and Shay Mitchell would definitely qualify you to be giving a makeup tip or two. So when Ariel Tejada shared exclusively with marie claire the makeup products he can’t live without, off the back of his first Makeup by Ariel Masterclass in Sydney, we added the below to cart immediately.
“Skincare has a lot to do with it. I take [very good] care of my skin,” Tejada says. He credits The La Mer Moisturising Gel Cream as his go-to moisturizer, also swearing by cult foundation Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk for helping create a flawless base. Other crucial products in his kit, Tejada explains “I need brow gel so Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel, I have to have that.” He also swears by Lancôme Hypnose Mascara and the L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara in Carbon Black, “I use that one a lot, it gives a lot of volume and it’s really dark.” For lips, his go-to is the NYX Soft Matte Cream, which you can get your hands on for $12.95.
For the classic Kardashian contour, Tejada says, “Honestly, the KKW Crème Contour Sticks. I really do use [these]. They’re really creamy.”
