My 5 Makeup Must Haves
By Renée Ahdieh

Renée Ahdieh’s 5 Makeup Must Haves

Natasha Denona Star Palette

This palette is everything I love about summer—golds and pinks and beautiful sunset reds. It’s versatile and timeless.

Benefit Precisely My Brow

I adore this brow pencil. It’s just the right texture, and it glides on like a dream.


Anastasia Glow Kit with Nicole Guerriero

Are you searching for that perfect highlighter? There are six gorgeous ones right here, in all sorts of undertones.

Stila Magnificent Metals

These are my absolute go-to product for the summer. So easy to apply and add that final glittery touch to your eye makeup.



Jouer Lip Products

These have tremendous staying power and a wide range of colors. Did I mention that they smell like vanilla?

    Love this! My must haves include bye bye undereye by It Cosmetics, Water’s Up highlighter from Benefit, and Too Faced lip injection gloss!


  4. Kathrina said:

    This makes me wish I knew how to apply make up. My daily make up is limited to lipbalm…. maybe mascara and lipgloss if I’m feeling it haha

      I’m actually pretty limited too… I don’t use a ton of stuff because I love the natural look. Mascara, brows and lip gloss are my must haves.


  5. Amanda Torr said:

    I absolutely have to have Better than Sex mascara by Too Faced, Celebration Foundation from IT Cosmetics, Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso, and Burts Bees lip balm in Coconut Pear, LOVE!


  6. Jana said:

    I must have benefit roller lash mascara! Never leave the house without mascara


  7. Yasmine Romanova said:

    From your post, my favorite thing is the Natasha Denona Star Palette because glitter and summer mash.

    My make-up must haves for all seasons are a Marc Jacobs gel pencil eyeliner, Marc Jacobs Black Velvet Mascara, the Naked Rose eyeshadow palette from Urban Decay, and any colourful and dramatic matte lipstick from Gerard Cosmetics. A girl can look natural and at the same time a tad dolled-up with these. 😉
    Btw, one month later, I’m still hung up over Ōkami, Renée!

    I’m not a big makeup lady, but I think that eyeliner is a quick and easy way to look polished.


  9. Bianca Arzán said:

    My makeup must haves are mascara and any kind of lipstick.

    So much eye and lip makeup, I love it! I’m really satisfied with the fact that my all time favorite author recommends makeup that would look great with my skin tone. I can’t wait to try these. Thanks Ms. Ahdieh!
