Use This Makeup Artist Trick To Get Glowing Skin Instantly

On our recent photo shoot with Zoey Deutch (that showcased three must-try hairstyles using only three bobby pins), we found ourselves loving the hair, naturally, but also mesmerised by Deutch’s super glowy skin. We couldn’t let the makeup artist on set, Andre Sarmiento, leave before we got all of the details. Thankfully, he was more than willing to open his bag of tricks and share his perfect skin secrets.

For a complexion that needs a little pick-me-up to look its best, no ordinary moisturizer will do—Sarmiento prefers to prep with a customised cocktail. His recipe for soothing stressed out skin begins with an aloe vera gel to calm any inflammation and help the skin to be less reactive (which is ideal prior to makeup application). Then, he mixes in a hydrating cream to balance dry spots and really bring skin back to life. Finally, for the last boost of hydration, Sarmiento says to add your favourite basic moisturizer that’s specific to your skin type. He recommends using one with antioxidants and calming ingredients, like grapefruit.
