Skincare // The New Makeup

Any good makeup artist will tell you that the key to a flawless application of makeup is great skin. Unfortunately, we weren't all blessed with supermodel skin so it's important that you understand your yours and spend a few minutes each day looking after it. 

We've spoken to two of our amazing artists to find out what they're doing to get their skin looking so good! Whatever they're using, we want it.

"I have oily skin with large pores in ares so my my own aim is to keep my skin clean and fully protected against the sun during the day because I freckle easily and I'm scared of ageing!" 

How do she do it?

" I use glycolic pads from Nip and Fab a couple of times a week instead of a traditional exfoliator containing beads. Glycolic Acid is natural and encourages cell renewal. It also has salicylic acid in it to help keep pores minimised and clean!

"Mineral Zinc or Titanium Oxide are the only ways of fully protecting your skin from the sun so I use the Derma-E Anti Oxidant SPF 30 or if I want something lighter, I'll go for the Clarins UV Plus SPF 50 which is perfect for wearing under makeup!"

How does she cleanse?

"I'm not loyal to any particular product but I am loving the Garnier Micellar Water at the moment! The Laura Mercier Eye Makeup Remover is oil free but like an oily cleanser, it takes off stubborn makeup and even waterproof mascara. It's a great choice is you're an eyelash extension lover!"

Her Top Tip?

"Protect during the day, heal/regenerate cleansed skin while you sleep!"

What does her skincare routine consist of?

"I use the Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel, it's a smooth cream peel that contains an exotic cocktail of natural fruit enzymes from papaya and pineapple which help to gently exfoliate, purify and regenerate tired or sensitive skin. 

I then move on the the Decléor Aromessence Neroli Concentrate, an elixer of 100% pure essential oils. This product penetrates into the skin leaving it looking smooth and radiant!"

Her Tips For Overnight Skin Pampering?

"I use the Decléor Neroli Oil along with the Hydrating Night Balm on top. I call it my overnight miracle rejuvenation!"

Her Favourite Mask?

My favourite mask is definitely the Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Skin Clay Mask. It tightens pores, brightens the skin and improves elasticity!
