Choosy moms choose Jif, and every makeup artist we've ever met chooses Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. Model Melodie Monrose confirmed, after trying out a bottle in 13: “Every makeup artist who I have ever met tells me I need to get this. It's worth the hype—definitely. You put it on and you feel ready for a photoshoot immediately.”

Just as important, but often getting the short side of the marketing budget, is the proper brush. “You can tell the difference between a good brush and a bad brush as soon as it hits your face.” Melodie says, picking up the Sigma F60 Foundation Brush. “I have really sensitive skin, but every girl can tell. Hourglass has really good ones, which I stole from my mom. I also have some from MAC that I've been using forever. This one is really good though—it makes applying foundation a lot more fun–especially if they're fluffy brushes.”

Wands are also useful (and sometimes underrated), and the one inside the YSL Full Metal Shadow (she's using Grey Splash mixed with Aquatic Copper here) should not be overlooked. With a little imagination, application feels like a soft windshield wiper across your lid and not just because the color deposit has 'wet look' written all over it. Swipe, swipe, swipe...flawless makeup achieved. Now for finding a pair of jeans like Melodie's...
