As a beauty editor, I feel like I’m constantly consulting dermatologists about what I should put on my face. I love asking the derms I know about everything skincare-related—whether it’s the buzziest new ingredient, the latest and greatest in filler technology, or which eye creams are best for looking youthful at any age.
One thing I hardly ever talk to dermatologists about, however, is makeup. When I want the scoop on makeup, I typically defer to makeup artists, but lately, I’ve been wondering what dermatologists use on a daily basis. After all, they are experts on all things skin, so it would make sense that they would only use the absolute best makeup products on their own faces.
I reached out to some of my favorite dermatologists to learn what exactly they reach for when they’re leaving the house. Unsurprisingly, most of their favorite products are high-performing cult favorites, many of which have skincare ingredients to give them a boost. Like me, you might find yourself reassessing your own makeup collection. I mean, when not one but two renowned derms recommend the same mascara, I think that means it’s time to add it to your arsenal ASAP. Keep reading for top derms’ favorite products, and be sure to take notes.
