Backstage at the HELLESSY Spring/Summer 2018 RTW Collection in New York, Makeup Artist Gucci Westman prepped models’ skin with luxury skincare brand SK-II including her latest favorite, the new LXP Ultimate Revival Eye Cream which launches mid-September.
This season, Hellessy’s Sylvie Millstein was inspired by Lauren Hutton’s safari style and wanted the beauty look to reflect that. Gucci Westman used the iconic model’s bronzed, sun-kissed skin as inspiration and created a beautiful, luminous base as the focal point of the look.
SK-II FACIAL TREATMENT ESSENCE
To prep the models’ skin, SK-II Facial Treatment Essence was patted and gently massaged into the skin. The brand’s signature product is formulated with over 90% pure PiteraTM, which promotes the skin’s natural surface rejuvenation process, balances the moisture barrier for overall hydration and elasticity, and instantly refreshes skin for an even, radiant complexion.
“I wanted the girls to have beautiful skin with that healthy-looking radiance you have at the end of the Summer,” stated Gucci. “It was important their skin was luminous, but not the kind you get with a highlighter. I wanted the girls to have ‘Facial Treatment Essence-luminous’ look.”

Next, the new SK-II LXP Ultimate Revival Eye Cream was gently patted all around the eyes. The luxurious, velvety eye cream features Highest Concentrated PiteraTM – the signature ingredient in the LXP Collection that is 8x more concentrated than other SK-II products – which delivers instant hydration. The LXP Ultimate Revival Eye Cream, also formulated with SK-II’s new Lychee Extract which helps to de-stress the delicate eye area, rejuvenates the skin to create the perfect base for makeup application.
“I love the richness of this new LXP Ultimate Revival Eye Cream,” raved Gucci. “It makes the skin super hydrated and refreshed, which is key for these girls during Fashion Week as they’re running from show to show. Having their makeup applied and removed constantly really leaves their skin dry and dull, and this new SK-II LXP Eye Cream is the perfect solution.”
Gucci finished the look off with Terra-cotta colors on the cheeks, eyes and lips.
Application Facial Treatment Essence is a simple step easy to incorporate into any skincare ritual. Apply to cleansed skin, both day and night, by sprinkling a teaspoon into hands, pressing gently and evenly onto the face and neck. Skin will absorb the Essence quickly and naturally.
