Santigold’s Favorite Makeup & Hair Products

Want a backstage pass to Santigold’s dressing room? Slip past security to discover what hair and makeup products the singer says she can’t do without.

M-a-c-gold-glitter-S ONSTAGE MUST

“Right before I walk onstage, I put M.A.C Gold Glitter on my eyes,” says the genre-bending dance-rock singer. “I feel like a kid playing dress up. It’s the final touch.”

La-mer-concentrate-S GUILTY PLEASURE

“All the flying I do is really dehydrating,” says the Philly-born artist. La Mer The Eye Concentrate “stops me from looking like a zombie.”

Smith-rosebud-salve-S OFF-DUTY STAPLE

Smith’s Rosebud Salve multitasks as “a moisturizer for face and hands, and a pomade to smooth flyaways. It can even be your own Vicks­, if you add eucalyptus oil to it,” she says.

Eminence-organics-skin-care-lemon-cleanser-S SKIN REMEDY

“Keeping my skin calm with all the stress around me is almost impossible,” Santigold says, but Eminence Organics Skin Care Lemon Cleanser does the trick.

Redken-real-control-crema-care-leave-in-treatment-S STRAND SAVER

Hair can “get over-heated” from doing show after show under hot stage lights. Redken Real Control Crema Care leave-in treatment protects this superstar’s mane from breakage.



  1. I’ve tried the Smith’s rosebud salve before so thumbs up on that.

  2. I haven’t used anything that I didn’t like from MAC. MAC is the business. I am anti Redkin though. That mess is as effective as water in my hair.
