A Model's Top Ten Beauty Product Reommendations for Camera Ready Photos.

I have been asked so many times to reveal my All time favorite beauty products, so I thought I would start with my TOP TEN tried and true go-tos. These are the beauty choices I make every time I'm on television or need to be camera ready - for they have never failed me! 

1. Giorgio Armani Maestro Foundation. One of the highest rated foundations by makeup artists for flawless perfection. Great coverage with a satin, light luminous finish - perfect for those high definition cameras!

2. Lorac's TANtalizer. My best feature are my legs and living in Arizona I get to show off nearly every day wearing shorts and skirts. My absolute best recommendation besides self tanning is this product to give a nice bronzed glow. Great to use all over before a swimsuit photo too ... anything darker recedes in photos and everything helps for those days.

3. HOURGLASS Aura Sheer Cheek Stain. I have to admit, I own all three colors. The great part of using a cheek stain is that it doesn't fade like powder or smear down like cream blush. Don't be intimidated by the color - it is VERY sheer and does not go on as dark as it appears. Secret trick: Layer this underneath highlighting blush and it will last all day long.

4. Beauty BlenderIf you thought all sponges were created equal when it comes to makeup application, this one will prove you wrong. I have no idea why, but this little gem makes it look like you have almost used an airbrush to apply. No edges means no lines and the tip is perfect for getting underneath your eyes perfectly.

5. Amazing Cosmetics Concealer. One of my favorite concealers because it blends and erases any hyper-pigmentation so easily. Water resistant and  it comes in lots of different shades. 

6. Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer. This is a must have for anyone who wears eyeshadow. Not only does it prevent creasing, but no matter what brand of eyeshadow this will help it look better and last longer. I am also a big fan of the under eye primer in this line too. Both brighten the eye instantly.

7. Makeup Forever HD High Definition Powder. This year is all about a matte looking face, but there's a difference between matte and dry. This powder not only sets my makeup, but it mattifies the skin flawlessly which is key in front of high definition cameras that can see every pore. It is translucent which means it is invisible color for all skin. You can wear as a finishing powder or on a bare face alone.

8. Brazilian Blowout Acai Smoothing Serum. I use this every morning on my wet hair before blow drying. Not only does it prevent frizz but it coats the cuticle to protect it, locking in moisture and giving great shine.

9. YSL Touche Éclat. A concealer/highlighting pen that literally brings light to your face without any sparkle. Using this product always makes me look well rested. Check out my post about all the places on your face you should be highlighting {HERE}.

10. Givenchy Mister Mat Mattifying Foundation Primer. I must admit that I have tried alot of primers - far too many to remember or count. No matter what I buy or try, I always go back to Mister Mat. A primer makes the difference in flawless foundation application, but many times they are too greasy or have so much silicone that they literally "ball up" on my face. I especially love Mr Mat because he doesn't leave me with an oil slick when I'm done putting on my face. Key for on camera work and makes it so I need less powder too.
