Steal her Makeup Bag, Makeup Artist, Karen Malcolm-Pye, reveals the beauty products that the hottest celebs are coveting right now.

Kim Kardashian

In her makeup bag you will find L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black. Her makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic likes to create drama with Kim’s eyes. This mascara does just that by building the lashes volume by four times their natural thickness.

Taylor Swift

To make her blue eyes pop, Taylor Swift uses Maybelline Eye Studio Master Drama Gel Eyeliner in Blackest Black. The liner can hold the pigments more thanks to its oil-free formula.  Apply the liner in small strokes from the inner to the outer lash line of eye.

Evangeline Lily

In her makeup bag you’ll find shimmer cubes from the Body Shop. Pick a neutral palette; they work for anyone. You can apply the shadow wet or dry and it gives you the little hint of sparkle.


Achieve Rihanna’s flawless look with pressed powder foundation from Jane Iredale. The mineral based foundation allows your skin to breathe and lets its radiance shine through. The brand recommends a three step process: use the pressed powder along with the application brush and hydration spray. Combined the three components allow for optimal coverage.

Dakota Johnson

L’Oreal Paris Glossy Balm. Makeup artist Pati Dubroff applies this glossy balm in lovely mocha. What’s great about this product is that you can use it on your lips and cheeks!

Gwyneth Paltrow

Known for her minimalist look, she keeps it easy with Stila’s Convertible Color Compact. It’s great if you want a sheer tint of colour and glow on your lips or cheeks. The compact allows you to take this with you and apply on the go!

Reese Witherspoon

She’s got a glow is gorgeous! She wears St. Tropez One Night Only Instant Glow Body Lotion. The applicator mitt prevents the lotion from getting onto and staining your hands. Also, it washes off after one time use so can apply on those special occasions when you need a little glow.
