Katey Denno shares her top 10 clean product picks across makeup and skincare.
Katey Denno is known not only for being a celebrity makeup artist to countless celebrity clients like Amanda Seyfried, Amber Heard, and Felicity Jones, among others, but for being a passionate champion of clean beauty. She believes that being confident in the ingredients being used on the skin will bring feeling beautiful to new heights. We were excited to talk to Katey about the clean beauty products she always has in her kit and loves the most. Read on to check them out!
ILIA Limitless Lash Mascara
"This continues to be my favorite mascara in the clean beauty market for a number of reasons: it doesn’t flake, smear, or ever bother anyone’s eyes. It does a great job lengthening and making every lash super dark black. The brush helps separate and fan out lashes, and you can add layer upon layer for a really big lash look."
Rituel De Fille The Ethereal Veil
"I’ve been a fan since RDF launched, and this creamy concealer and/or foundation has been such a staple in my personal makeup kit and my work bag since day one. It’s really blendable, as well as easily layered, allowing the user to sheer it out for the lightest of coverage and also pack it on for more dense pigment payoff."
Vapour Aura Multi Stick
"Vapour is a long-time favorite brand, and their creamy cheek color sticks offer something for everyone. The texture melts into skin, the colors are varied and can be layered for a more intense color look, or can be applied with a light touch for a trace of color."
Aether Beauty Rose Quartz Crystal Charged Cheek Palette
"These powder blush palettes are so silky and blendable, which means no streaking cheeks. You can lightly dust on a tiny bit of color, as well as pile it on for more bold cheek pop."
Westman Atelier Super Loaded Tinted Highlight
"I’m not always a fan of shimmer on the face, but this product is full of shimmer and it gets my vote. It can be used all over the face, but I like it best on cheeks and eyes, when applied with a brush, or on hydrated skin, with clean fingers and rubbed in!"
Kjaer Weis Lip Pencil
"Creamy and densely pigmented, these lip liners are my absolute go-to. The shade range is small but great, and the quality of the base is exactly what I want in a liner – it glides on easily and feels weightless on the skin."
RMS Beauty Luminizer X Quad
"RMS highlighters x 4 = you can’t go wrong. You can use them anywhere on your face, shoulders, and clavicle, use them when you’re wearing no other makeup to add a little glow, or apply them strategically on top of a full face of makeup for the perfect finishing shimmer."
Beneath Your Mask Heal- Vegan Whipped SKin Soufflé
"The scent and texture of this whipped body butter has me on my 3rd container (and they’re big containers, and a little goes a long way). This is the product you want to envelop your body after your nightly shower so you can crawl into bed and feel your soft skin and smell it on yourself all night."
True Botanicals Pure Radiance Oil
"This is one of the products I credit with keeping my acne-prone skin clear, and my now mid-40’s skin looking super nourished. I use it morning and night and I’m addicted to the scent. I can’t keep it in stock at my house because a client or a friend is always asking for a refill."
Jenette All Natural Skin Care Be Happy Brightening Toner
"The scent is a blend of essential oils that truly makes everyone ‘be happy’ when they smell it. It’s the perfect beginning to your skincare routine, day and night. I keep it in my purse (or on my desk) for mid-day refreshes that are as much for giving my mood a lift as it is for my skin."
