Model and makeup artist Jasmen Khan can pull off any beauty look successfully — scroll through her feed and you’ll see everything fresh-faced natural to full-on glam. It’s clear this girl knows how to wield a brush set and palette. We wanted to find out how Khan creates her variety of looks, so we caught up with the Bengali beauty in NYC. Here’s what she uses to perfect her skin, hide blemishes and highlight her cheekbones. You’ll want to stock up on some of these products yourself.
1. Jo Malone Red Roses Bath Oil
This bath oil smells like roses and I use it not only in the shower but also after on my wrist and neck. It gives me a natural rosy scent and I always get stopped by people asking me what I’m wearing. They’re surprised to find out that it’s just an oil!
2. Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream
This cream goes on really well in the summertime. It has a gel consistency and is very lightweight but still gives me enough hydration because I have super dry skin.
3. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation
This is my all-time favorite foundation. It’s medium coverage, and nice and glowy. I get such a dewy look when I’m wearing it and of course it’s Kim Kardashian’s favorite foundation so obviously I love it as well [laughs].
4. Platinum Long Lash Lara Devgan
This is a lash serum by a plastic surgeon, her name is Lara Devgan. She’s world-famous for her facials and lip injections and now she also has a skincare line. This is her Platinum Long Lash serum. I’ve worn it for about a week now and I feel like my lashes have grown wearing it.
5. MAC Highlighter – Whisper of Guilt
This highlighter has a peach undertone which works best for me. For my skin tone peach and gold highlighters are most compatible, it really suits my complexion.
6. Anastasia Brow Wiz
I cannot live without this product, if I have no makeup on and just my brows, I look good with this. This is my go-to product.
7. Shape Tape Tarte Concealer
This concealer is full coverage, pigmented and the perfect shade for me. I wear medium – if you have darker olive skin medium would be perfect for you. It’s so matte that when I apply it I don’t even need to use a powder. It’s also good for highlighting and contouring depending on your skin tone. For my dark under eye circles I need something that will hide them right away and this does the trick. It’s also really great for hiding hyperpigmentation.
8. Atomic Makeup Silky-Matte Lipstick
This lipstick is cruelty-free and vegan. Also, if you like makeup that’s not going to harm your skin in any way this is perfect. It’s a great nude with a peachy pink undertone and I love pairing it with a brown lip liner. A lot of times it’s hard for me to find a nude for my skin tone, a lot of times they’re too light. This one is the ideal shade for me.
