Cheap Thrills: Jamie Greenberg’s Do-it-all Salve and a Bonus Pick

You might already know her from her popular YouTube series, but you definitely know her celebrity clientele. Jamie Greenberg is Kaley Cuoco’s secret weapon, she’s had Rashida Jones, Lizzy Caplan and Elizabeth Moss in her chair (plus more…way more) and she’s one of the most fun and fantastic makeup artists you’ll find backstage at Fashion Week or at a photo shoot (think GQ, Bazaar, Allure and more). But just because her own pro kit is stocked with the likes of mark., Tom Ford Beauty and Chanel doesn’t mean that she isn’t strictly high end, we asked her about her favorite products for under $100 and her answer surprised us — but probably won’t make seasoned beauty junkies bat an eye.

Greenberg’s pick? Aquaphor Healing Ointment ($8.99 for 3 oz.). The do-it-all multitasking wonder that your mom probably has had in her purse your whole life is a makeup artist go-to and, according to Greenberg’s expert opinion, do just about anything.

“[I]t’s good for your lips…sometimes my eyelids will become itchy, so I’lll put it on my eyelids and you can put it all over dry ankles, toes, and knuckles,” says Greenberg. “And if you have flyaways, put a very thin layer [on your hair]. I feel that anyone can wear it.”

And as a bonus — and because Greenberg loves to share — Jamie adds that blotting papers are a must-have whether she’s on set at a photo shoot or she’s giving you a peek into her own makeup bag.

I love blotting papers if you’re going to on camera or a wedding. Just blot your T-zone. Tatcha ($12) makes a great one. It’s a very special line. But if you’re a DIY kind of gal, steal a couple toilet seat covers.”
