  • Multi-Stick
    1 of 17
    Katey Denno

    Clients: Julianne Moore, Amanda Seyfried
    “The Ilia Multi-Stick ($34) in Cosmic Dancer! It's not your usual whitish or bronze illuminator. Instead, the color blends so perfectly into skin, offering a truly luminous effect with no hint of ‘I’m using a product to make me look so glowy.’”

  • Oil

    Hung Vanngo

    Clients: Anne Hathaway, Rooney Mara
    ​“I used a lot of face oil and body oil! I love the finished look it gives to the skin.”

  • Mousse
    3 of 17
    Renato Campora

    Clients: Katy Perry, Kate Bosworth
    ​“A combination of mousse to build up foundation and a few drops of oil to smooth the hair for a shiny result.”

  • Maximista Thickening Spray
    4 of 17
    Thomas Dunkin

    Clients: Rachel McAdams, Carey Mulligan
    “My favorite new product that I've worked with this year is the Maximista Thickening Spray ($28) by Oribe. It adds so much volume to hair, but is still flexible enough to allow you to work the hair into any shape.”

  • The Half-Up
    5 of 17
    Sarah Potempa

    Clients: Evan Rachel Wood, Lea Michele
    The Half-Up ($9)! It’s the baby sister to the bun maker, The Wrap-Up ($12), and I'm becoming obsessed with the new trend of the half-up top knot!” 

  • Lustro Face Oil
    6 of 17
    Christy Coleman

    Clients: Heidi Klum, Emmy Rossum 
    “Definitely used a lot of oils this year! All over the skin, on the cuticles, in the hair, and at the tops of cheeks.”

  • Flip It Over Texture Spray
    7 of 17
    Anthony Campbell

    Clients: Catherine Zeta Jones, Emma Stone
    “I think the best new products as of late are all the texture sprays that have become available. They are relatively easy to use and super effective.”

  • Maestro Foundation
    8 of 17
    Beau Nelson

    Clients: Kristen Stewart, Blake Lively
    “The coolest product this year was Armani Maestro Foundation ($62)—in the eye dropper. Its totally unique texture changed the foundation game. Pigment suspended in a volatile base means a no-makeup feel on the skin and great coverage.”

  • Caviar Stick Eye Colour
    9 of 17
    Sage Maitri

    Clients: Alexa Chung, Hannah Simone 
    “Laura Mercier's Caviar Stick Eye Colour ($26); it’s richly pigmented and majorly blendable. It just glides on and all of the colors are stunning. I use Cocoa on everyone; the warm bronzy brown flatters all eye colors and skin tones. I will never not have this in my kit.”

  • Meta Revive Dry Shampoo
    10 of 17
    Gregory Russell

    Clients: Chloë Moretz, Christina Hendricks 
    “Serge Normant Meta Revive Dry Shampoo ($15) because everyone's hair needs this texture! It provides a perfect undone/messy/effortless texture and that's always a good look.”

  • Brow Pomade
    11 of 17
    Fiona Stiles

    Clients: Eva Mendez, Abbie Cornish
    ​“The best new product I've been using is the Brow Pomade ($25) from Surratt. It's not shiny or stiff like a brow gel, but keeps the brows in place. Love this formula.”

  • Eyelash Curler
    12 of 17
    Mai Quynh

    Clients: Amber Heard, Ginnifer Goodwin
    “I just got the new Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler ($24). It's so cool! The shape of the curler is so unique and because it's smaller than a traditional curler, it's easier to get to all of the hard to reach areas.”

  • Hair Oil
    13 of 17
    Jen Atkin

    Clients: Kim Kardashian, Mindy Kaling
    ​ “On a recent trip to Dubai, I found (and fell in love with) the oils from Shiffa ($87). Most hair oils and serums have ingredients that are watered down with silicone, but Shiffa's hair oils are blends of pure ingredients that are nourishing to hair and scalp.”

  • Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour
    14 of 17
    Kate Lee

    Clients: Keira Knightley, Rosie Huntington Whiteley
    ​“This year I’ve used a lot of matte lip color. Specifically, Chanel’s Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour ($34). The colors are amazing and the density of pigment makes them a dream to use.”

  • Sheer Cheek Stain
    15 of 17
    Pati Dubroff

    Clients: Charlize Theron, Jessica Biel
    ​“I'm loving cream blushes in a "wetter" formula. Hourglass’s Sheer Cheek Stain ($38) is almost a liquid and ByTerry’s Rose de Rose Blush Fluide ($58) is a bit denser than the Hourglass, but I'm obsessed with them both!”

  • N28 Lip Treatment Oil
    16 of 17
    Jillian Dempsey

    Clients: Kristen Stewart, Jennifer Lawrence
    “Hourglass’s new N28 Lip Treatment Oil ($42)!”

  • Sugar Spray

    Mara Roszak

    Clients: Emma Stone, Zoe Saldana
    “I found a product by Bed Head that has been really fun to play with; it’s a sugar spray ($17) that adds lots of texture, similar to a beach spray, but more intense.”
