I, being a curious beauty editor, am always wondering what celebrity makeup artists are buying from retailers like Sephora, Ulta, and even the drugstore. After all, they might be masters at their craft, but I often forget that they’re buying and using the same products that we are—just in a much better way.
As usual, that curiosity peaked and I reached out to celebrity MUA Lisa Aharon to give me the scoop on what exactly she would buy at Ulta. For starters, she’s always stocking up on sun protection, specifically, Supergoop! products. “I’m a sunscreen enthusiast and wear it daily to avoid immediate and long-term damage to my skin,” she says. “As a makeup artist, the selection of finishes Supergoop! makes are key for creating specific looks while [also] protecting my clients’ skin.” What I really wanted to know about, though, is what foundations from the retailer she thinks are the best buys. Because all great makeup looks start with a proper base, right? Aharon happily provided some solid picks. If you’re curious which Ulta faves she keeps in her kit, keep scrolling.
