Even though everyone is very bundled up in New York right now, the lipstick we're seeing on the street seems brighter than ever. Sephora Cream Lip Stain in Always Red is the go-to shade for Kourtney Freehan, a freelance makeup artist we met in Union Square. And naturally, she paired her bright lip with a swipe of Wet N Wild Liquid Eyeliner. "I've literally been using this brand for 12 years!" she told us. When it comes to skincare, she relies on another inexpensive beauty tool. "Every night or every other night, I use the Sephora face brush to make sure I get all my makeup off, and it helps my moisturizer absorb better from removing all that dead skin." Check out the rest of her beauty essentials below.
