Elemis and The Oscars

Celeb make-up artist Kelly Cornwell, whose clients include Alicia Vikander who just won Best Supporting Actress at the Oscars, reveals her red carpet secrets.

Good skin is essential to any makeup look, and it’s always worth spending a little extra time perfecting your skin before makeup application.

What are your skincare secrets to get celebs ready for red carpet events?
Prepping skin for the red carpet is all about adding moisture and illuminating. First I use the Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm, $60 to cleanse the skin and remove all traces of makeup and impurities. This really helps soften the skin and prepare it for makeup. I always follow with a nourishing mask, like Exotic Cream Moisturizing Mask, $77which contains honey and mimosa, and makes such a difference to the finish of the makeup, and helps products go on so smoothly. I then finish with an illuminating primer, Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm, $60 is light reflective without being sparkly, to achieve the perfect red-carpet glow.

What are the top skincare products your celebrity clients are loving?

The Pro-Collagen Marine Cream, $128, the texture is so light but it is such an intensely moisturizing formula it sits really well under makeup and creates a dewiness. Also I never do make-up without the Pro-Collagen Hydra-Gel Eye Masks, $85. They are so lightweight and ideal for my kit, and because of the cooling and de-puffing effect they are perfect for an instant difference.
