It’s time for us to dig down deep into the beauty bag of Faith Pierce! The curator and content editor behind That’s Just Fabulous has found the perfect blend of must-buy beauty products, and Faith is sharing the linked list below, along with a few of her best-kept beauty secrets (pay special attention to her eyelash curling trick!). Read our Beauty Bag Spill breakdown with this Washington, D.C.-based makeup pro below.
Glossier Priming Moisturizer ($25): Before any products hit my face, Glossier’s Priming Moisturizer must go on. It’s super hydrating, lightweight, never feels oily and preps my skin perfectly for the makeup that’s about to be put on it.
Becca Backlight Priming Filter ($38): I’m all about skin that looks like it glows from within and has a healthy dewy look—this primer really does the trick. I’ve tried a few products with the same type of claims, but none of them has ever worked quite this well. It leaves behind a gorgeous radiant glow that is perfect for even the most minimal makeup days.
Diorskin Forever Perfect Makeup Broad Spectrum 35 ($50): While I’m all about glowy, dewy skin, I do tend to love a foundation with more of a satin finish when I’m putting on a full face of makeup. I find that this Dior base works well on my primarily dry skin and has a luminous finish without looking oily. It has a medium coverage that can be easily built upon and leaves behind a flawless, long-lasting finish.
IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Anti-Aging Concealer ($24): This is my holy grail concealer. It’s so beyond creamy and brightening, has great coverage, but never looks cakey or too heavy. While it works well when you set it, it doesn’t necessarily require a powder.
Make Up For Ever Pro Bronze Fusion Bronzer ($36): When it comes to bronzer, I like a product that isn’t super pigmented—it helps to avoid the “oops, I’m now orange” moment. This bronzer has a beautiful golden glow, just the right amount of shimmer and can be built upon beautifully.
Charlotte Tilbury ‘Cheek to Chic’ Swish & Pop Blush ($40): For blush, I love my neutral shades, and this one by Charlotte Tilbury checks off all my boxes. It has just enough dusty pink, not too much brown, a trace amount of shimmer and works with any makeup look.
Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed, in ‘Champagne Pop’ ($38): When this product launched, I knew I needed it immediately. If you couldn’t tell from the rest of my lineup, I’m all about a glowy look. This highlighter is hands-down the prettiest one in my collection. It can be swiped on for a bit of a glow or really built up for a highlight that can be seen from space!
Glossier Boy Brow ($16): I’m blessed that after my phase of over-plucking, my brows grew back full and dark. I truly don’t need much product on them, so the Glossier brow gel Boy Brow in brown is perfect. It grooms, fluffs and adds just a little tint.
Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler ($20): I have long lashes, but they are pretty straight, so a lash curler is always with me. My favorite tip for high-impact, dramatic lashes is to lightly heat your lash curler before using it. It works just like the heat works on a curling iron to help keep your lashes in place.
Charlotte Tilbury ‘Full Fat Lashes’ 5 Star Mascara ($29): I’m so thankful that spider lashes are in because that’s how my lashes tend to react to mascara naturally! More is always more in my opinion—I love a good, thick, dramatic lash on top and bottom. This Charlotte Tilbury mascara has a nice fat wand, and a jet black formula with a wet finish.
Glossier Balm Dotcom ($12): Glossier’s lip salve is definitely my hero lip product. I always have this on—even under my lipstick! It’s the perfect priming and hydrating product to help your lipstick last and not look dry.
MAC ‘Prep + Prime’ Fix+ Finishing Mist ($22): My final must-have is MAC’s Fix+. I use this to set my makeup if I know I’m going to have a long day, as well as to get more pigment and oomph out of my eyeshadows. If I’m using a shimmer or a pressed pigment, I always spray my brush with this to help enhance the color.
