The Make Up For Ever Products That The Pros Swear By

Call us nosy, but we love a great opportunity to poke around in a makeup artist’s kit. Considering they somehow turn dark circles and blemishes into flawless canvases day after day, we always want to steal their secrets — and the exact products they use to create such magic.

Most of the time, when we’re digging through someone’s kit (with permission, we swear!), Make Up For Ever seems to pop up as one of the “lifesaving” products that they always bring along to set. So, we asked some of our favorite pro artists which Make Up For Ever products they can’t live without, and why. While some products we could have predicted — HD Concealer, of course — there were a few that we wouldn't have guessed. Click through to see the pro's picks.

"It’s no surprise that Make Up For Ever's Flash Color is my editorial essential. The high intensity pigment stays vibrant under harsh studio lighting. The creamy formula also performs double duty as super emollient lipstick." — Makeup artist Jordy Poon

“The wide variety of colors in the range means there is [a concealer] for every complexion. The formula is perfect for concealing imperfections or adding luminosity and cover to undereye dark circles. I use it with a small brush to pinpoint-cover pimples, and for undereye deep shadows. I pat a small amount with my finger, focusing on the ‘dent’ at the inner-eye corner and pat it out, leaving a thicker layer where necessary, and gradually diminish coverage to an invisible sheer layer imperceptible to the naked eye.” — Makeup artist Charlie Green

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Concealer, $27, Make Up For Ever.

“The Make Up For Ever Ultra HD line is hands down the best I’ve tried! The Invisible Concealer works amazingly and the foundations are truly incredible. But, last but not least, I also can’t work without the Mist & Fix — it just keeps the makeup in place all day long!” — Makeup artist Tina Bech Lipman

Make Up For Ever Mist & Fix Make-Up Setting Spray, $30, Make Up For Ever.
