While her wardrobe is edited to perfection, Tyler admittedly has a hard time parting with products. “I own about 20 Chanel lipsticks and ten Rodin lip liners—I think it’s safe to say that I need to condense,” she says. VIOLET GREY stepped in to help streamline this sartorial star’s after-hours beauty routine.

“I don’t trust any other foundation,” says Tyler about this breathable base that hydrates skin and lends it a dewy glow. “I always want to look bright, healthy, and sultry for a night out.”

Covering dark circles is Tyler’s biggest beauty pet peeve. “After a couple of hours, I’ll look in the mirror and see that my concealer has faded and my mascara is smudged,” she says. This palette comes complete with three shades for customizable color and a setting powder to lock coverage in place.

Currently in the process of growing out her eyebrows, Tyler can use this innovative powder-to-cream formula infused with conditioning ingredients to fake fuller arches and fill in gaps.

Red lipstick is a staple in Tyler’s makeup wardrobe, but she admits she still hasn’t mastered how to apply it perfectly. “I’ve never had a steady hand and I’m not very good at coloring inside the lines—my inner five year old comes out,” she says. With its buttery texture and pigment-rich cream formula, this ruby classic glides on smooth (and cleans up easy) every time.

Everything Tyler needs to touch up on the go—concealer, highlighter, and blush—is packed into this ultra-sleek compact that slips seamlessly into the slimmest clutch. Plus, these fingertip-friendly formulas make for safe (and foolproof) backseat application.

“No matter how many drinks I’ve had, you’ll catch me doing my full skin care routine before bed,” says Tyler. This fluid removes stubborn makeup, cleanses, and tones the complexion without scrubbing so she can speed up the process.

This tool was practically made for erasing the previous night’s effects. Tyler can use it to push her favorite Dr. Barbara Sturm Hyaluronic Serum deeper into skin and roll away puffiness.
