Tina Turnbow: Celebrity Makeup Artist

Turnbow knows from natural beauty. Whether she's playing up the pretty faces of clients such as Amanda Peet and Keri Russell or shopping the cosmetics aisle at Whole Body, Turnbow likes to make the most of what we (and Mother Earth) come by naturally.

Fresh Here Comes the Sun, $45

“I just love the balance of the rosy pink with the two bronze shades in this palette. The bronzers warm up the skin, then the pink gives your cheeks a fresh pop of color. The formula also makes the skin look subtly shimmery, without being too glittery.”

YSL Touche Eclat, $40

“I was initially put off by this highlighter/concealer because it’s so popular—and every makeup artist always sings its praises. But I was ultimately won over. Its texture, colors and coverage are all tops.”

Guerlain Le 2 de Guerlain Mascara, $36

“This mascara is beautiful on the lashes. And the long golden tube it comes in is really glamorous. There are also two brushes—one at each end of the tube—and I’ve been using the little one to blend false lashes into natural ones.”
