swear by!

Koh Gen Do

This line was actually created at the same time as high-definition cameras came to use in Japan. With the new lenses’ ability to show every fine line and pore came a new standard for foundations and powders. That’s where KGD came in. The line promises to never contain artificial fragrances, synthetic pigments, or petroleum-based mineral oils, and all of the products are based on natural ingredients (with no animal testing!). The makeup line evolved from a skincare line, so you can rest assured that all of the products will have added benefits for your complexion. On top of all of these perks, the makeup is GOOD. And I mean, really good.

This line has actually been around for quite some time, though you may not have heard of it. Inglot stands out for offering a wide array of vivid colors and product options. Their lipsticks and eye shadows are highly pigmented, giving you seriously vibrant color without a lot of layering. The best part about these products is that they are customizable. Different products and shades can be linked together to create portable palettes for you to take with you as you need. It’s great for on-set traveling and even better for a regular girl on the go.

It Cosmetics
I discovered It while working on a film this past summer. After using this line, I couldn’t believe I had never heard of it. It Cosmetics are developed with leading plastic surgeons (talk about the people who know how to transform a face!), so a lot of the products are color correcting and made with anti-aging benefits. There’s something for every little skin problem we face daily: redness and blemishes, acne and rosacea, hyperpigmentation, undereye circles, large pores, and more.
