The IMPO Pros love to spotlight cosmetics and skincare lines manufactured by professional makeup artists and inform our readers about which products easily cross over the line from studio professional grades to everyday consumer friendly brands.

Senna Cosmetics is one such line we use professionally on our clients everyday and now you can carry this brand in your personal makeup bag!

The Pros love the entire line of Senna Cosmetics, but here are a few of our top choices:

Totally Transforming Eye Shadow Primer – the Pros are big into anti-aging and this product is amazing!  Contains a potent vegetable ogliopeptide from natural hibiscus that functions in much the same way that Botox does, but without the risk or side effects of injection! Firms and smoothes the eyelid while minimizing lines and wrinkles, this product works especially well on very mature eye areas. Tip: use after eye cream, but before eye shadow. Use sparingly.

HD Hydra Cover – this is one major flaw fixer!  Three corrective shades cancel under eye darkness, facial pigmentation, redness and blemishes.  Contains licorice extract to help firm puffiness under the eyes, but this formula is very light and creamy.

Citron “Finish” Oil-Free Powder – this product will warm up your skin and cut redness.  If you suffer from any form of Rosacea, this product has enough opacity to cover those red areas, but leaves skin feeling light and airy.

Beigelite – the Pros love this classic daytime highlighter that is a champagne hue.  We use it under the brow bone, along the cheekbone, cupids bow and down the center of the nose.  Blends easily into the skin and gives a very natural glow.

Form-A-Brow Kit – this palette will create the perfect brow in seconds.  You need this product if you have faint, sparse, over-tweezed, over-waxed, arch-less or disappearing brows because of age.  Contains four classic brow shapes and three colors to mix for the most natural and eye-enhancing looks.

Mineral Eye Lift Powder – 8 hours of sleep in a sweep! The Pros are totally addicted to this product!  This powder instantly brightens under eye darkness and smoothes expression lines.

Blush and Bronze – want year-round glow?  Then you need to reach for this sheer mineral blush and bronzer!  Gives a natural look to the skin and a pop of color to the cheeks.  Tip: apply bronzer to forehead, cheeks, chin and nose then layer blush over the apple of the cheeks.

Cheeky Blush – this is the Pro’s top choice for cream blush because it is also a powder!  Powder blushes act dry and cream blushes are too short-lived, but this blush gives an amazing glow to the skin (like a cream) and has the staying power of a powder (without the dry, cakey feeling).

Sugar Lip Scrub – you can easily sweep dry, flaky lips away with this moisturizing and exfoliating lip balm.  Perfect for winter, this product will ensure that your lipstick or gloss products apply smoothly. This product is a gift with purchase of $50 or more only, so hurry while supplies last!

Lipstick CreamSenna Cosmetics has the best nude lipstick colors to choose from out of any other product line.  The Pros love Soul (soft nude beige), Suede (bare nude), Baby Nude (light nude beige) and Peek-A-Boo (nude pink beige).

Lip Sync – this is the dream team of lips!  This product contains lipstick and coordinating lip gloss in one component.  Brilliance!  Long-lasting, moisturizing and contains collagen to plump your pout!

Also, check out Senna Cosmetics entire line of eye shadow, pencil and blush colors as well.  These are highly pigmented formulas with incredible staying power.

The Pros love the entire line of Matte Eye Colors and Sheer Glow Eye Color shades too!  If you want to play up your eyes for the upcoming holiday season, you will want to shop Senna’s Metallic Eye Colors, which we feel are the richest colors with the most depth and dimension.

Eugenia Weston also has a YouTube channel containing some great how-to videos on creating wearable looks for any skin tone and age range.  She also has great, easy to follow artist tips, like the one below on how to create the perfect cat eye!

Pro Tips and Tricks:
Do you suffer from redness and puffiness after you tweeze or wax your brows?  Try Senna’s Calming Black Tea Tonic to reduce the stinging sensation and calm inflamed skin by soaking a cotton round and placing over brow area for a few minutes after tweezing or waxing. Alcohol free, contains aloe and rosewater.
