See ALL 8 secrets!

Best Primer for all-day wear

HOURGLASS Veil Mineral Primer

A weightless primer that smooth's skin and refines the look of pores. Helps create a great canvas for your foundation and prolongs the wearability of it too.

Best Foundation for Oily Skin

HOURGLASS Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation

A medium coverage foundation with a powder finish. Skin feels light after application and the formula helps to create a matte look. Great for those of you who have oily skin and need a foundation that won't break down. Also photographs really well.

Best Product for Eyebrows that stay on all-day


Best in the market. This pomade is waterproof, sweatproof and smudgeproof, which means your brows ain't goin' nowhere. Use a fine tip angle brush to apply to help mimic the look of natural brow hairs.

Liquid Liner to get the perfect “Cat-eye”

NARS Eyeliner Stylo

I've tried practically every type of liquid liner out there, and I always come back to NARS. This pen is so easy to use, with a fine tip that's not too long yet not too short, and has just the right amount of give. Carving out a cat-eye is practically effortless. It dries quick without looking 'cakey'. It has just the right amount of color payoff so you don't need to re-line.

Eyeliner that won’t smudge in your waterline

NARS Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner

I love this so much I wear it everyday. Doesn't smudge in my waterline and best of all, no more pencil sharpener needed! This eyeliner is actually a 'mock' pencil that twists up with a built-in sharpener. The creamy texture glides on smoothly and stays put.

Best Mascara for full lashes without the clumps

HOURGLASS Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara

The number one question I get asked the most by everyone is always "what mascara do you use". Here it is. Film Noir is the perfect balance of brush meets formula. The signature brush is narrow enough to allow you to reach the root of your lash and the bristles help create volume and depth at the base allowing your lashes to look fuller and longer.
