GENERAL HOSPITAL star Kirsten Storms (Maxie) knows a thing or two about makeup. Whether she’s on set or off the clock, the gorgeous actress always puts her best face forward. She recently took to Instagram to share a behind-the-scenes look at her makeup routine on set, clueing fans into the products she used to get her signature sultry, smokey look along the way.
“Makeup look for werk today,” the actress wrote. “Everything I used is from Aesthetica Cosmetics (except my foundation — which is by Georgio Armani — and my lashes are Ardell)!”

Makeup look for werk today. 🥰 Everything I used is from @aestheticacosmetics (except my foundation – which is by Georgio Armani and my lashes are Ardell)! And guess what guys?! My code with them will STILL get you 30% off! You will definitely want to check out their brow kit – you can see in the pic that it comes with a few stencils to help you get a perfect shape. 🙌🏼 I also am in love with their bronzer (and the contour kit, but the bronzer compact is perfect for my purse and set bag) and the colors in ALL of their eye shadow compacts. 🙆🏼♀️ My code for the discount is: KSTORMS30 @aestheticacosmetics *this is not an ad. The lovely peeps at Aesthetica provided me with a code for you guys because I ♥️ them. #treatyoself

Kirsten Storms’ Lashes
Ardell Demi Wispies
Where to buy: $4.99, Ulta
Fans in the comments section of Storms’ post were quick to inquire about the lashes she used to finish off her look. As it turns, out she’s a fan of Ardell’s iconic Demi Wispies lashes. These lashes offer up a subtle, natural look that’s never over-the-top.
Kirsten Storms’ Lip Balm
Rosebud Lip Salve
Where to buy: $7, Sephora
Eagle-eyed fans were also quick to notice that Storms left her lip balm out from her roundup. Thankfully, she shared in the comments section that she was wearing Rosebud’s lip salve — an intensely-hydrating and long-lasting gloss that’s formulated with a blend of hydrating oils, such as peppermint and cottonseed, to moisturize and smooth. Packaged in a vintage tin with a slight berry tint, this balm is one pick we second as a great winter-beauty staple!
Kirsten Storms Makeup Brushes
Aesthetica 4-Piece Contour and Highlight Makeup Brush Set
Where to buy: $15, Amazon
No surprise here — Storms also loves Aesthetica’s tools! While the company offers several different options, we noticed the soaps star using the tilted contour brush, which can be found in its four-piece contour and highlight makeup brush set. Wrapped up in a chic carrying case, this set comes with a large domed powder brush, a flat highlighted contour brush, the angled contour brush in question, and a small domed brush that’s perfect for applying those gorgeous shadows.
