A Pro Makeup Artist’s Skincare Secrets


Kayleen McAdams, editorial and celebrity makeup artist, best-kept secret is her love for Chicet skincare. After working with well-known celebrities, including Jessica Biel, Lily Collins, and Sofia Vergara, McAdams understands what works and what doesn’t. Like many others, McAdams considers her skin to be extremely sensitive. Per McAdams, she is “oily in her T-Zone,” but “the surface [of her skin] gets really dry.” After trying numerous products, McAdams found Chicet through her sister and actress, Rachel McAdams. McAdams found Chicet is the brand that truly works for her. 

Chicet commits to ensuring that our customers receive only the best ingredients to keep their skin looking fresh and youthful. This is exactly why McAdams is devoted to Chicet’s chemical and fragrance-free skincare line.

Check out her top picks from Chicet below.

PCA-Na Oat Protein Cleanser/Exfoliator For Combination Skin

Chicet PCA-Na Oat Protein Cleanser For Combination Skin

“There’s some kind of oat or something in it that’s a bit of an exfoliator. I know a lot of women love them, but I never use a Clarisonic or even a washcloth. Anything like that, really, because it’s too abrasive. So I just use a little bit of exfoliator, morning and night, and rinse it off with water.”

Day & Night Revitalizing Concentrate Serum
Sodium Hyaluronate

Chicet Day & Night Revitalizing Concentrate and Sodium Hyaluronate

The Day & Night is like a serum and Sodium Hyaluronate is like a collagen. I just mix them for convenience sake. They’re not creamy, they’re both gel-based. So I put that all over my face and my chest area.”

Fresh Clay Mask

Chicet Fresh Clay Mask 

“If I’m getting a deep pimple, I’ll put this mask on to absorb the oils. Sometimes I’ll use the mask all over my face and sometimes I’ll just put it on a blemish overnight.”

Gommage Exfoliator For Dry & Sensitive Skin

Chicet Gommage 

“It’s just in powdered form, oats and powdered milk and a couple of other things, and she’ll mix it up with water, and put it on your face. As it dries she’ll keep rubbing it with her fingers, and as it cracks it takes off the dry skin too. She says to use it every day, which I find hard for time, so I don’t always do it every day, but that’s what she recommends because it keeps the skin exfoliated and fresh. I do love it every time I do it, especially on my nose, it really seems so smooth afterwards.”
