Anastasia Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel ($39)
Who: Suzy Gerstein
Clients: Camilla Belle, Julie Bowen
"I am over the Instagram—and reality-TV—driven trend of perfectly waxed brows. Brows are meant to be unique to each face. They add character and structure, and those brow shapes that look like precisely pruned lines do neither. I am all for removing the excess stragglers that do nothing for an arch, but I just think it's important not to go overboard in a quest for the 'perfect' brow because it just ends up looking cookie-cutter."
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation ($92)
Who: Daniel Chinchilla
Clients: Ariana Grande, Mischa Barton
"I wish people would stop copying the heavy-foundation tutorials. In reality, these techniques look better on camera than they do in real life. Try using a more natural foundation—and less of it—and contouring with a powder bronzer. Not only will this look more natural, but it will be much faster as well."
Laura Mercier Flawless Contouring Palette ($69)
Who: Brandie Hopstein
Clients: Becky G, Pia Mia
"Crazy contouring or facial mapping, where you basically draw all over your face using heavily applied makeup in the wrong colours and then pretend a Beautyblender can save the day...let's just make it stop. In the age of body-positive declarations, let's bring back the love for natural and subtle enhancements of our facial features."
