Hollywood’s Secret to Paparazzi Ready Make-up

By Mary Zavaglia

Tinseltown is glowing – literally! Celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Cate Blanchett and Margot Robbie know that getting their glow on is what gives them star power on and off the red carpet. Highlighting your cheeks and high points instantly brightens skin and makes you look youthful. 

THE FIRST STEP…PREP!

STEAM AND CLEAN

Proper cleansing is essential. Start by steaming the face for three minutes with a mix of aromatherapy oils such as lavender and bergamot to relax and calm big night nerves! Then, use a cream or milky cleanser for sensitive /dry skin and a gel cleanser for oily/combination skin. Rinse skin thoroughly and pat dry.

EXFOLIATE AND TONE

Exfoliating revitalises circulation and leaves skin fresh and clean. Using hands, mix exfoliant with warm water before applying to face. Rinse thoroughly, then apply an alcohol-free toner to minimise large pores and bring skin’s naturally protective acid mantle back to the surface.

MASK & MOISTURISE

Apply a mask to give skin a quick pick-me-up. Use a clay-based mask to deep cleanse oily complexions or a moisturising mask to revive dry skin. For combination skin, use the appropriate mask for each area. After thoroughly rinsing off mask, apply moisturiser and eye cream.

THEN GET GLOWING WITH...

A-LIST MAKE-UP STRATEGIES

These star tips will get you looking gorgeously radiant in a blink!

  • For translucent skin mix flesh-toned shimmer cream with rosy blush, then use fingers to blend and apply over cheekbones, brow bones and temples to add a glowy finish. Or, dust a light-reflecting powder on top of the cheekbones for some sparkle.
  • For bright eyes, smooth an illuminating concealer into the inner and outer corners and on the inner bridge of the nose. Then, trace inner lashlines with navy blue kohl, then sweep silver or gold shadow around lashlines and apply mascara.
  • For barely there lips, brush on peach and coral lip tones which team perfectly with this look.
