Five Essential Makeup Items, From Katia Beauchamp (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Though it’s difficult for any beauty expert to pick just five favorite products, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Birchbox Katia Beauchamp had five amazing recommendations for us.

First, when it comes to hair, Katia loves volume. “I’m from the South, so I love big hair!” she laughed. Katia loves Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray, which you apply to roots of hair. Shake your head around a bit to spread the product, and you’ll be ready to go from work to play in just seconds.

Next, Katia focused on her favorite fragrance: a universal scent from Joie. “This scent is so universal, lovely, light, feminine and season-less,” she said.

Number three: Liz Earle Cleanser. This is a cream-based facial cleanser and muslin, re-usable cloth power duo cleansing system. “This makes cleansing a little bit of a ritual,” she said. “You apply the cleanser on your face, dunk cloth in warm water and then use the cloth to wash and buff your skin.”

Next: Benefit’s “Gimme Brow” Wand. Since Katia’s all about big, bold brows this season, this is a perfect tool for achieving that look. “You can layer it on for a subtle brow, and it looks natural,” she raved.

Last but not least: Cynthia Rowley Beauty Liquid Liner. This marker eyeliner creates a fine line right by lashes for something either delicate or dramatic. Another perk: the formula will stay on for 20 hours!
