Now raise a hand if you shop at Sephora or Ulta. Finally, raise a hand if you've heard about Reed Clarke. If you skipped the last one, you have some explaining to do. Reed Clarke is a new beauty site curated by celebrity makeup artist Fiona Stiles and it should be bookmarked by every beauty junkie.
Stiles not only regularly works with stars such as Halle Berry, Elizabeth Banks and Jennifer Garner but on fashion editorials with top photographers Mario Testino, Steven Klein and Annie Leibovitz. After being in the game for two decades, she has definitely used her fair share of cosmetics. You can trust that she developed a discerning eye that only recommends the best.

Aside from a beautiful, clean aesthetic, the site also features individualized product descriptions by Stiles that detail why you will love an item as well as usage tips. Every item has been tried by the makeup artist herself. One example is the unexpected makeup brush cleaner by Masters ($12). "It’s only sold in art-supply stores and is meant for cleaning the oil paint out of fine art brushes, so if it can get oil paint out of painters' brushes you can imagine what it will do for your makeup brushes," she writes.
