Focus On Your Skin For An A-List Glow

Celebrity makeup artists have been sharing some of their top tips to help you achieve that flawless glowing skin so often seen on our favourite actors, singers and performers as they grace the red carpets.

Most recently it was Cannes Film Festival where the stars came out in all their finery, with Glamour Magazine speaking to a few of the beauty experts who advise a host of the world’s best-known faces.

Vincent Oquendo, of The Wall Group who works with Victoria’s Secret Angels, revealed that skin prep is the key to getting a picture-perfect look.

“Whether it’s a facial massage using one of my favourite serums or treating them to a quick scrub and hydrating mask combo, glowy bronzed skin is the must-have item,” he asserted.

One of his top tips is to put SPF under the makeup and use a setting mist to ensure it stays in place for the whole of the night.

Mary Wiles, also of The Wall Group and who was responsible for Carey Mulligan’s look at Cannes, is also a fan of facials and massages and recommends layering serums and oils to help moisturise the skin before you apply any makeup.

When it comes to putting on your makeup, she advises following the mantra of less is more. “Play it up one feature at a time i.e. lips or eyes,” she said.

If you have an event to attend and suddenly discover a spot, don’t panic – a number of makeup artists offered their top tips recently on how to cover them with minimum fuss. Among the advice is using an anti-inflammatory treatment before you apply makeup, and not going overboard with your concealer.
