From doing her friends makeup during lunch period at school to doing Jessica Alba’s makeup for the cover of InStyle, Lauren Andersen has always known she loved doing makeup. Known for creating beautiful natural looks for a palette of women who have included Jessica Alba, Eva Mendes, Billie Lourd, Zoey Deutch, Abigail Spencer, and more, the now Austin-based artist makes any person her brush touches feel prettier. You can check out her tutorials from subtle to making a statement on her Instagram @laurenandersen.
Here Lauren shares four products she’s loving right now:
ILIA’s Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 Foundation: This serum is my go-to foundation these days It has a lightweight dewy coverage that leaves skin looking and feeling fresh. It also has an SPF of 40 and anti-aging ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid and plant-based Squalene. Your skin will be beautiful, protected and better for using it.
Monika Blunder Liquid Flush Cheek Tint: Monika is a fellow makeup artist that I’ve known and respected for years. I’m so into her Liquid Flush Cheek tint, a new formula that I just discovered. It is easy to use and glides on giving a sheer wash of color and leaving skin looking fresh and hydrated. Her product line is cruelty-free, fragrance-free, vegan and clean.
Shani Darden Retinol Reform: Shani is a facialist and this product is one of my all-time favorite beauty product and a secret of many Hollywood stars. It’s a gentle exfoliate that leaves skin feeling fresh and transformed and an amazing alternative to other anti-aging products.
The LEIA Ultraflesh Blender: This really unique and somewhat sexual looking beauty tool went super viral on TikTok. It was designed by fellow makeup artist Beau Nelson and is made from a futuristic-feeling polymer that mimics skin on skin contact. It doesn’t absorb any makeup, is super easy to clean, is sustainable and hygienic and with it I use less than half of the makeup I normally would.
