Makeup Bag: Stylist and designer Andrea Leiberman shares her beauty faves

June 16, 2011 | 10:53 am

Andrea_portrait_Andrea Leiberman, celebrity stylist and designer (of her own A.L.C. collection), has helped hone the looks of Hollywood gals including Drew Barrymore, Gwyneth Paltrow and Gwen Stefani.

But her personal style is more downtown New York than Tinseltown — defined by dark, pared-down basics paired with bold, layered jewelry.

Her unique beauty look hearkens back to iconic artists including Georgia O'Keefe and Frida Kahlo.

Suffice it to say, we were wild with curiosity about what beauty products she relies on:

Givenchy Parad'Eyes Fluid Eye Liner, $27.50: "I don’t like anything too crazy for my eye makeup, but this eyeliner is great for a quick pop of intensity," said Leiberman. "I love the notion that it actually contains traces of mother-of-pearl. It’s a bit of added glamour."

Mustella Sun Block Lotion, $17.99. "It’s a total necessity for me, as I have a beautiful 1-year-old and 3-year-old running about in the California sun," said Leiberman. "I love the fresh, rich smell."

Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler, $19. "It doesn’t pinch and provides the perfect curl that makes me look wide awake, even after a long day’s work," she said. "It’s the simplest and quickest way to look refreshed."

Oversized black Ray-Ban Wayfarers, $145. Though not technically a beauty product, Leiberman loves the chunky, iconic shades. "They’ve always been my go-to sunglasses," she added. "I can’t seem to shake them. They are so classic, but with an old school vibe. I feel like they make any outfit effortlessly cool."

Rosebud-salve Smith's Rosebud Salve lip balm, $4.70: "I am a little obsessed" with this all-around beauty balm, said Leiberman, adding: "I use it for everything. It’s great for moisturizing hands and feet, and of course for a subtle tint on lips or cheeks."
