OUR FAVE FASHION WEEK 'STATEMENT SKIN' LOOKS
As firm advocates of a 'Skin first' beauty philosophy, we were excited to see Jakubowski, McCartney and House of Holland all send their models out with minimal make-up this fashion week. Embracing the 'non-touring' (as in no contouring) trend which leans more towards subtle concealing and strobing, Aveda used natural, nourishing face oils massaged into the skin under base to give lifted, sculpted skin that looks healthy, dewy and fuss-free.
Keeping the philosophy of simple, clean skin, Models 1 turned to a £50 Decléor facial to recover their girls complexions from the hectic show schedule. The treatment, the ‘Recharge Vitamin Glow’ facial, provides a ‘natural facelift’ - promoting oxygen to feed the skin cells giving a fresh, 8-hours-of-sleep glow.
D.I.Y: We’ve all experienced winter skin once in our lives - dryness, dullness, and oily patches caused by getting slapped in the face with freezing winds outside, then moving inside to dry, stale, heated air.
According to Vogue "Your skin loses moisture and in effect can mean cakey-looking foundation. To combat this problem and make sure that the skin is moisturised at all times, makeup-artists have found it beneficial to mix a few drops of face oil to their foundations just before application to dramatically improve the quality of the foundation, and the skin beneath"
Disciple Good Skin contain natural antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and light-weight hydrators that will change the texture of your foundation sheer it out, resulting in a more natural, dewy finish. By adding oil to your foundation you’ll be using less product than usual, and will find it a whole lot easer to meticulously blend it in for a natural look.
