Behind every great look, there is a great make-up artist. Celebrities’ secret weapon to look flawless is simple: they have a glam team. They are not only skilled in what they do but they also full of resources. From the best foundation to most-wanted mascara, they are always up-to-date on the latest quality beauty products. Here, celeb makeup artist spills all about their favorite beauty products!


The Artist: Edward Cruz
Celebrity Clients: Priyanka Chopra, Ariana Grande
Recommendation: Givenchy Noir Couture 4 in 1 Black Satin mascara (Rp. 435.000)
You do not need magic to have lush eyelashes without having to put extensions. Givenchy’s mascara does the trick because it is not usual mascara; “It has three spheres in a row which make the lashes full at the roots and naturally spikey,” says Cruz. That is how Miss Ariana Grandeachieves plush, dramatic lashes on a daily basis without the expense of falsies.


The Artist: Benjamin Puckey
Celebrity Clients: Gigi Hadid, Hailey Baldwin
Recommendation: Chanel Correcteur Perfection (Rp. 552.720)
For some, concealer is a life saver. That is exactly what Chanel Correcteur Perfection does. “It stays on all day, covers dark circles and blemishes,” says Benjamin Puckey who preps the faces of Gigi Hadid and Hailey Baldwin. Plus, it is rich in pigment so you do not need much product to get good coverage. This is important, because too much concealer shows whilst you want a more natural look.



The Artist: Marissa Morino
Celebrity Clients: Selena Gomez
Recommendation: Pantene Expert Intense Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner (Rp. 78,000)
You are surely familiar with Miss Selena Gomez’s Pantene commercial. She uses her privilege as a brand ambassador wisely and this Pantene shampoo is on her packing list while traveling. You can see the result from her tour videos where Selena’s hair always looks bouncy, beautifully voluminous on stage. Marissa Morino makes sure the popstar uses it after each show. “It instantly moisture and soften her hair and bring it back to life in time for the next show,” says Morino.
