Makeup Artist Grace Pae Reveals the Pricey Skin-Care Product Worth the Hype

Published

Welcome to I Swear By This, an interview series where we chat with our favorite fashion and beauty insiders about the beauty products they use down to the last drop. This week, we asked celebrity makeup artist Grace Pae to share all of her current beauty must-haves.

When we were compiling the iconic makeup looks that would go on to make our best beauty moments of 2021 list, there was one that instantly stood out in our minds: Lil Nas X’s glowing Met Gala makeup.The artist behind his luminous visage? Grace Pae. The makeup artist is known for her range; she can execute any look from a bejeweled eye to a classic red lip.

Below, Grace gives us a breakdown on the skin-care and makeup products she’s loving right now.

Lash Enhancing Serum

“I’ve tried so many lash enhancing serums throughout the years and they’ve always made my eyes itchy or uncomfortable, but with this one, I’ve had no side effects. I’ve used it for years and now everyone always asks me, ‘Are those your real lashes?’ I recommend this to everyone—I literally can’t live without it.”

Half Step Flash Facial

“Susan Yara—she used to be an editor at NewBeauty—started this skin-care line and the products work so well. My favorite is the Half Step Flash Facial. It’s basically a very gentle exfoliator that’s super easy to use. First, you remove your makeup before applying the exfoliator. Leave it on for about five minutes then wash it off with your cleanser. Immediately after using it, my skin feels super-soft. And by the time I wake up the next day, it’s literally glowing.”

The Cream

“I felt like this product came out of nowhere; like one day, it popped up and everyone was recommending it. I have really sensitive skin, so I’m typically hesitant to try new products, but I gave this a go. When I woke up the next day, I was a believer. Everything that everyone says about this cream is true. The price point is definitely on the higher-end, but it’s so worth it.”

Colorfix Eye, Cheek & Lip Cream Pigment

“Honestly, I’ve never been disappointed with anything I’ve tried from this brand and I’ve always been a huge fan of the Colorfix Cream. There’s a group of nude shades that you can use anywhere on the face. The pigment is incredible—it doesn’t budge—and it also blends super easily into the skin. If you want that ‘no-makeup makeup’ look, these are a must-buy.”

Hollywood Flawless Filter

“I actually love to use this as a highlighter because it doesn’t give off any over-the-top shimmer. It just brings out your skin’s natural glow. After I do my skin prep, I apply the product to the high points of the face before adding a foundation on top.”

Brow Flick

“Some brow pens have such intense pigments that you have to be so careful while using them or else you’ll end up looking like you have Sharpie lines on your eyebrow. The Glossier pen is the perfect in between—it still shows up on the skin, but it’s not too intense, so you don’t have to be super precious during the application process. Just make sure your brows are completely clean before you apply; if there are any oils or lingering skin-care products on your brows, the pigment won’t stick to your skin as well.”

Ultra Glued Invincible Styling Hair Gel, 3-Pack

“I learned this trick from another artist, Ariel Tejada. My brow hairs are super-straight and when I use a brow product, my brows will usually look full for a couple of hours, but by the middle of the day, the hairs go limp and fall back down. So I saw Ariel use this and I tried it out myself. I can confirm that your brows will not budge until you wash them off at the end of the day. You only have to apply the smallest amount of gel on the brow before using a clean spoolie to spread out the product evenly. It’s such a smart trick; a lot of people use this product for their baby hairs, so it makes sense that it would work on your brows.”
