Last week makeup artist and Barneys beauty guru Jason Ascher shared some of his favorite Spring beauty products to an audience of eager bloggers. Jason has been the resident Beauty Guru at Barneys since 2000 and before that he was at Trish Mc Evoy.
Here are some of Jason Aschers favorite Spring beauty items:
Fragrance: Le Labo – Tubereuse – this delicious Spring fragrance has notes of bergamot, neroli, petitgrain, citron, rosemary, orange blossom, tuberose, rose, jasmine, mandarin, oak moss, benzoin, cedar, sandalwood and musk.
Cult favorite cleanser by Eve Lom made the cut. This solid oil cleanser simply “melts” on your skin removing makeup, oil and debris with the help of Eve’s famous muslin cloth.
Sunday Riley – Juno Transformative Lipid Serum (exclusively at Barney’s New York). The lightweight dry oil contains 13 nourishing oils including argan, acai, pomegranate and carrot seed oil.
Fragrance: Frederic Malle – Carnal Flower, Veviter
Lipstick Queen – Jean Queen Lipgloss. This shade is said to be the perfect contrast to denim jeans.
Among some of Jason’s other favorites were:
Koh Gen Do – Gommage Gel – sold exclusively at Barney’s this Japanese brand focuses on treatment and foundation. This product contains crushed pearl and rosemary but does not contain any artificial fragrances, petroleum-based mineral oils or parabens.
Hourglass Mineral Primer – this primer has an SPF 15, hydrates the skin and is oil, fragrance and paraben free.
Sue Devitt Beausoleil Pace Palette – A nutrient rich eye and cheek makeup palette
Beauty is Life Multi-Touch in Baline – This color line from Germany is exclusively sold at Barneys.
Giorgio Armani Beauty, Eyes to Kill Excess Mascara – This mascara features an oversized patented lash brush to provide precision application to coat each lash in fewer strokes. I’m a huge fan of this mascara, as I only need one coat for dramatic lashes!
By Terry, Rose Balm – Rose balm hydrates and nourishes dry lips. This lip blam helps to repair and rejuvenate lips while also preventing the signs of ageing.
Colbert MD, Intensify Facial Disks – This one step at home microdermabrasion disk with the help of enzyme action increases surface cell turnover to reveal glowing skin. This is one of my favorite products out of all of the Spring picks. I’ve used the disks for a week and there was a dramatically noticeable difference in the texture of my skin and my makeup application never looked better.
