Peer backstage at any fashion show around the world and you’ll be sure to see rows and rows of makeup artists’ meticulously organised products. What’s changed in recent years is the bounty of skincare products that now accompany their makeup kits as well. It now seems glowing skin is all about a vigilant skincare routine and diligent skin prep even before you think about your perfect foundation match. Today, the best skin is skin that is glowing, radiant and appears almost lit from within - here’s how to get it starting with the right at-home regime:
Our skin cell turnover rate slows after the age of 25 years old. Twice weekly exfoliation with either a chemical exfoliant like Endota New Age Active Thermal Exfoliant or a physical buffer such as HydroPeptide Exfoliating Cleanser helps keep your skin smooth, healthy and helps your make-up look more natural (and glowing).
Stress, dehydration, poor diet as well as a lack of sleep can suck the natural lustre out of your complexion. But adding adequate moisture levels to your complexion before make-up can help you fake a healthy glow. Before you apply your base, consider a super-charged hydrating serum or oil to help boost your moisture levels and create the perfect foundation for your make-up. We recommend: The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 and Kora Organics by Miranda Kerr Noni Glow Face Oil
Masks do wonders and giving skin an instant pick-me-up. Which is often just what’s needed before a special event. We recommend applying a sheet mask 10 minutes before make-up application for the dewiest result, try: Pixi GLOW Glycolic Brightening Sheet Mask or zone in on your eye zone with Hydropeptide’s Polypeptide Collagel+ Eye Masks. TOP TIP: Keep your masks in the fridge for extra cooling and calming benefits.
