Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentrate
Before online shopping was a thing, makeup artists in the UK and US used to buy up tubes of Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentrate (£20) every time they went to Paris for Fashion Week. It's been a makeup-artist staple for decades, and luckily, these days you can easily nab it for yourself at a number of retailers without having to buy a train or plane ticket.
"The Embryolisse Concentrate is the perfect moisturiser for under makeup," makeup artist Bryony Blake said. "The creamy lotion goes onto the skin beautifully, while hydrating and nourishing even the most sensitive of skin types. It can also be used as a makeup remover, which is what makes it perfect for any makeup artist's kit." Makeup artists Wendy Asumadu and Nikki Wolff are also fans. "This moisturiser is super versatile and great under makeup as it actually gives a little bit of hold. It makes the skin look plumped and feel hydrated and velvety," Wolff explained.
