As far as celebrity makeup artists go on Instagram, Hung Vanngo is the one you want to follow. Scrolling through his uberly inspiring feed, you'll notice he has beautified some of Hollywood's most famous faces. With Selena Gomez, to models Taylor Hill, Kendall Jenner, Emily Ratajkowski, Rosie Huntington-Whitely and actress Kate Bosworth as his regulars (are you sold yet?) you can tell his one of the best in the biz, and for extremely good reason.
But if you've ever wondered the exact product behind Rosie's radiant complexion, or how Selena Gomez' winged liner, you're beauty dreams have been answered. Hung took to Instagram to share the products behind his signature dewy-skinned, smokey-eyed style and why they're his favourites (non-sponsored and all). We advise to dutifully take note:
1. Anastasia Foundation Stick
"With almost 30 shades, there are options for every skin tone. This has a more matte texture, so would be good for oily or combination skin. It can be applied sheer, or to achieve full coverage if needed. The price is also great," he explained.
2. Nars Unrestricted Matte Eyeliner Stylo, $39, Mecca.com.au
"(It's) easy to apply, and completely matte! Sometimes when a liquid liner is too shiny, it can appear imperfect on the red carpet due to the patchy reflection of flash photography. This one photographs exactly as it's applied."
3. Three Cosmetics 4D Eyeshadow
"Most of these quads come with four textures of eyeshadow (matte, satin, shimmer, and cream) in coordinating colours." While this palette of eyeshadow isn't available in Australia, Hung explains if you're visiting Asia, it's definitely worth purchasing.
4. Covergirl Katy Kat Lipstick
If you've ever experienced matte lipstick to be drying, then make this your go-to. "This one looks matte but still has enough moisture that it's comfortable to wear."
5. Marc Jacobs Airblush, $68, sephora.com.au
"The new blushes from Marc Jacobs beauty are beautiful.. The texture allows you to apply a very soft wash of colour, but is buildable for brighter colour. I love the satiny multidimensional finish." And we completely agree.
6. Natasha Denona Blackest Black Matte Shadow
Vanngo uses this product for a dramatic, dark smokey-eye. "One of the blackest eyeshadows I've seen. Highly pigmented, but with a soft texture. Can be used with a damp brush for even more intensity or as an eyeliner."
