Ciara is a hot chick. That young woman is blessed with great genes. I’m a makeup artist so I truly appreciate a beautifully structured face like Ciara’s. I was excited to see her top beauty picks in my July Elle magazine. Ciara’s picks were not all the over-the-top, over priced, chi chi 0cosmetics that one would think a successful recording artist would choose. But instead she chose smart, affordable beauty items that WORK!
The Grammy winner says she relies on M.A.C Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation to keep her look “fade-free.”
A creamy, luxurious, gel-based foundation that provides medium buildable to high coverage with a natural satin finish. Hydrating, instantly revitalizes the skin while keeping it looking smooth, soft and plush. Long-wearing, water-resistant.
40 ml / 1.3 US FL OZ US $28.00
Ciara covers up blemishes with Fashion Fair Concealer; it’s “fast” and “so affordable,” she says.

“Big lashes are a must—they go with everything,” says Ciara, who prefers Kiehl’s Marvelous Mineral Mascara. “I love the way it shines.” $16.50

I love the choices Ciara has made in basic beauty products. Affordable and smart! I think I will have to induct Ciara into the Blinging Babes category! Plus I still love 1,2 Step, it’s one of my favorite workout tunes.
