As makeup artists, we often get asked what our favorite products are. And while there are plenty of high-end brands that we love, there are also a ton of great indie brands created by fellow makeup artists that deserve your attention. Here are 10 of our current favorites:
1. ColourPop Cosmetics: This affordable line has some of the best eyeshadows, lipsticks and highlighters around. Plus, they’re always coming out with new and exciting limited edition collections.
3. Anastasia Beverly Hills: ABH is beloved by many for good reason – their brow products are top notch and their contouring kits have changed the game when it comes to sculpting your face shape. Plus, they’re always expanding their offerings with new must-have products (like their recent glow kit).
4.. Melt Cosmetics: This brand has taken the beauty world by storm with their unique product offerings – from eyeshadow stacks (which come in both matte and shimmer finishes) to highly pigmented liquid lipsticks. They also collaborate with some major influencers on limited edition collections (like Jeffree Star).5.. Viseart: If you’re a professional makeup artist or someone who just likes really great quality eyeshadows, Viseart should be at the top of your list.
Their shadows come in a variety of finishes (matte, shimmery, etc.) and stay put all day long without creasing or fading away
