Skincare products that celebrity makeup artists love
By Carla Snuggs
Celebrity makeup artists create thousands of diverse looks to suit their clients' occasions, but they all begin with the basics: Smooth, hydrated and even-toned skin. Getting that glow is less complicated than you may think! I'm sharing makeup artists' skin-quenching secrets with you - and guess what? They're easy to grab at your local drugstore or health retailer.
Makeup artist and hairstylist, Alexa Rodulfo's current beauty obsession is NeoCell Super Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid! Alexa states, "The beauty market has wonderful products to make your skin glow and look healthy and flawless. I do believe is very important to take care of the inside as well. My current beauty obsessions? NeoCell Hyaluronic Acid (blueberry) as it acts as a powerful aid in skin hydration and NeoCell Super Collagen as it's great for your skin, hair, nails and joints."
Makeup Artist Helen Robertson, who works with Allison Janney, relies on these moisturizers to prep Janney's skin for photo shoots. She says, "I applied Sebamed Moisturizing Face Cream for sensitive skin on Allison's face prior to makeup, to liven and enrich Allison's skin. I massaged Sebamed Moisturizing Body Lotion for sensitive skin all over Allison's body for a rich, reflective glow."
I've tried all 3 products and they are highly effective and affordable - highly recommended!
NeoCell Hyaluronic Acid - Blueberry: Hyaluronic acid is known as Nature's Moisturizer, as it holds up to 1000 times its weight in water. Hyaluronic Acid is a water-loving nutrient that hydrates the body and promotes skin elasticity. It also promotes cell turnover. It's really made a difference in my dry skin and has reduced fine lines, plus it tastes delicious!
NeoCell Super Collagen +C: This nutrient-rich, all natural formula provides the body with potent beauty building essentials for radiant skin, thicker hair and stronger nails. These amino acids replenish the body's collagen supply, which in turn help to minimize ﬁne lines and wrinkles, improve skin elasticity, support bone matrix, strengthen nails and thicken ﬁne hair.
Sebamed Moisturizing Face Cream: Rich, luxe and non-greasy, this product repairs sensitive, dry or problematic skin. If you have redness or flaky skin this is great to apply before you apply your makeup. Bonus - contains Vitamin E to guard against the free radicals that can cause premature aging.
