Chanel’s runway shows usually boast inspiring eye makeup while Dolce & Gabbana loves a red lip, but Stella McCartney’s? The best thing about the British designer’s models is their skin. The consistently fresh-faced girls have Sunday Riley, the beloved British facialist, to thank for their dewy complexions.
At Monday’s McCartney presentation in New York, Riley gave each girl a mini-spa treatment pre-show. If she can do that amidst the hustle and bustle of backstage, you can certainly do it at home. Here’s how.
Use a hot washcloth to open your pores (let it steam for a minute) before applying Sunday Riley’s Ceramic Slip Cleanser ($45). Don’t rinse it off!
Layer the brand’s Good Genes ($105) on top; the lactic acid exfoliates and plumps the skin while licorice brightens, squalene moisturizes, and arnica boosts circulations.
This spring, Riley will introduce three new face oils to her stable of skincare products. At yesterday’s show, she sealed in all the good stuff mentioned above with Artemis ($125), a lemon-scented formula that’s anti-inflammatory and cleanses, tones, balances oily skin, increases elasticity, and actually fights aging by helping the body produce immune cells.
