Giving Thanks: Grateful Pros Pick Their Products – Part 1

Happy Thanksgiving! In the true spirit of the holiday, The Beauty Bug went straight to the beauty authorities to see what they were thankful on this turkey day.  

Dani Wagener, celebrity makeup artist and 3-time winner of Boston’s best makeup artist, is giving thanks for the following products:

Chantecaille Concealer/Foundation Stick – “In the winter my skin is drier, so I tend to use richer creams to keep my skin dewey throughout the day. This stick gives me the little bit of spot touching coverage I need without committing to a full foundation.”

Decleor Aroma Night Neroli Balm – “This all natural  balm is one of the most incredible products I’ve come across. My facialist, Andrea at Bella Sante, turned me on to it. I use it at night and it’s healing, softening and soothing.”

Josie Maran Argan Oil Illuminizer – “I blend this all natural vegan product on my cheekbones for a highlight during the winter.”

Tom Ford Beauty- “I feel like I’ve been waiting for years for this collection. I’ve been obsessed with TFB since he first collaborated with Estée Lauder years ago, creating stunning, sexy luxury products.  I still covet many unopened packages of all his original limited edition products. My must haves in this line… lipstick in Deep Mink and Cheek Color in Wicked.”


Holly Carter, PeopleWatch Beauty Editor, is thanking the beauty gods for:

Immunocologie Line Smoothing Treatment Serum and Treatment Crèm – “It makes my skin smooth and plump. My complexion has never looked better!!”

NYC Smooch Proof 16Hr Lip Stain in Forever Mine Wine and Berry Long Time - ”I absolutely love a lip stain. These give lips the prettiest wearable color—like you just ate a cherry ice! My friends think my lipcolor is just naturally fab.”

YSL Shocking Mascara“I have pretty short lashes and this mascara makes them super-voluminous and so sexy. ”

Dove Visible Care Softening Crème Body Wash ”There’s nothing like a nice warm shower after a tough workout. This body wash is so refreshing and ultra-moisturizing. I could just stay in the shower forever. ”

PhytoSpecific Revitalizing Treatment Hair Oil ”I am all about deep conditioning, and this lets the conditioning start even before you shampoo. I put it on my dry hair a couple of hours before washing it to make it extra shiny and soft.”

Viviscal hair vitamins ”They give me hope for longer, stronger strands!”

Diptyque Feu de Bois candle ”It has the most amazing woody scent—perfect for a cold winter’s night.”

CoverGirl Liquidline Blast Eyeliner in Blue Bloom – “I am rarely without eyeliner (maybe at the gym and while sleeping), and this one is such a pretty blue. It brightens my eyes, plus it’s universally flattering!”

Nadine Jolie , author and beauty blogger, is thankful for the following products:

Bare Minerals foundation -  ”My forever makeup love!”

Thierry Mugler Alien perfume – “Yummy holiday goodness.”

It Factor hair care –  ”Cuts my blow-dry time in half!”

Clarins Multi-Jour Day and Night Cream- “Works for the 1st signs of aging and makes me feel like I’m quenching my skin without it breaking out.”

OC Eight oil-control lotion – “…I am so freaking oily that I’m even an oil-slick in the winter! This keeps it at bay and gets me through the day.”
