Happy New Year of the Monkey! I’m very honored to share with you my favorite beauty picks of products that I feel are the best in the market, based on my experience and feedbacks from my clients—ladies who expect and demand only premier products on their faces. I choose products that not only achieve the best results—but must also contain the highest quality ingredients and are free from skin toxins such as mineral oil, sulfate detergents, parabens, synthetic colors and fragrances. I hope you’ll find the list helpful in your beauty journey. Please drop by my studio to say hello if you’re in Beverly Hills. May the New Year bring you good health, fortune, success, and lots of love. Patrick

163LAB Anti-aging Eye Lift

This eye lift cream is a miracle product. It protects the skin while brightening the eye area and reversing the signs of aging.

153LAB Anti-aging Cream

The 3LAB line is very technologically advanced. You’ll experience 300% hydration after just one usage of this cream. I love using it to give skin that instant boost of moisture.

14The Organic Pharmacy Collagen Boost Mask

This soothing mask is packed full of antioxidants to instantly lift, tighten and brighten the complexion. Use it before stepping out for that special event. It’s great for everyone, even for oilier skin.

13The Organic Pharmacy Antioxidant Face Firming Serum

I call this ‘the instant face lift oil’. It has the highest power of rose hip, grapeseed, alphalipoic acid, carrot and grapefruit which make this oil 50 times stronger to improve the skin surface than most serums on the market.

12Colbert MD Illumino Anti-Aging Brightening Mask

Dr. Colbert’s masks are an instant skin brightener and hydration boost. You’ll see the results immediately. It’s very gentle so you can also use as a post-laser treatment.

11TATCHA Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil

I love this cleanser. It has a blend of Japanese camellia and rice bran oil that melts away even waterproof makeup, cleanses and conditions the skin in one simple step.

10TATCHA INDIGO Soothing Silk Body Butter

The Tatcha Indigo body cream is so nourishing and gentle that it also helps sooths inflamed or irritated skin caused by eczema and rosacea.

9CLE de PEAU Beauté Bronzing Powder Duo

The two different color tones and textures give a soft sun-kissed radiance that is not too dark. Perfect for Asians with light to medium complexions.

8GIVENCHY Teint Couture Balm

The light-weight Teint just melts into the complexion like a second skin and gives a smooth, natural glow.

7Chantecaille High-Definition Perfecting Pressed Powder

Created especially for High Definition cameras, the skin smoothing powder instantly erases pores on all skin tones. This powder is essential for brides and anyone working in front of the camera.

6Chantecaille Lipstick Tea Rose

The texture of this new lipstick glides on so smooth and the additional collagen gives lips a sexy bee-stung appearance.

5Surratt Autographique Liner

This Japanese calligraphy-inspired brush was created for the record-breaking singer Adele. It’s no wonder Adele always has a perfect cat eyeliner look since she is using the Surratt liner made just for her.

4Serge Lutens Beauté Classic palette

The texture is ultra-light but the pigment is rich and lasting. The Classic palette is a dream for me to work on a smoky eye look.

3Zelens Age Control Foundation

Zelens treatment foundation is my go-to product for a medium to full coverage. What my clients love is that it feels like air on the skin. The photo-luminescent diamond spheres also help minimize lines and wrinkles.

2Jin Soon Nail Polish Nostalgia

I like this pink beige because it’s elegant and glamorous. This is one of the best classic colors because it also elongates the shape of your hands.

1Nars Nail Polish Jungle Red

It’s a knockout color and a favorite of my client Megan Foxx. The classic bright red is perfect to wear when you’re handing out red Li-Xi envelopes at the New Year!
