This is a New York Fashion Week FW 2017 Report. Backstage at the MONSE Fall/Winter 2017 RTW Collection in New York, Makeup Artist Gucci Westman prepped models’ skin with luxury skincare brand SK-II prior to makeup application.
“The inspiration for the beauty look was inspired by a deconstructed, urban film noir-type girl,” said Gucci Westman. “A girl that feels very real, approachable, and beautiful.”
To ensure each model had a luminous, radiant complexion, Gucci applied the iconic SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, followed by GenOptics Aura Essence and the NEW R.N.A. Power Eye Cream (launching this month!)
“I wanted the girls to have super hydrated skin so it was really important to prep with SK-II skincare,” stated Gucci. “I used the SK-II GenOptics Aura Essence to give the complexion a healthy, radiant glow and the new SK-II R.N.A. Power Eye Cream to hydrate and firm the eye area.”
SK-II FACIAL TREATMENT ESSENCE
To prep the models’ skin prior to makeup application, 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.
SK-II GENOPTICS AURA ESSENCE
Next, recent launch SK-II GenOptics Aura Essence was applied to help brighten and plump the skin. The unique lightweight serum formula is packed with anti-oxidants, humectants, vitamins and minerals to instantly brighten dull skin after several busy, long days of shows.
NEW SK-II R.N.A. POWER EYE CREAM
Finally, the brand new SK-II R.N.A. Power Eye Cream was gently massaged under the eyes. The hydrating eye cream is specially formulated to leave skin around the eyes firmer, smoother and brighter – the perfect canvas for eye makeup application.
Once each model showcased hydrated, healthy skin, Gucci applied makeup to enhance the skin’s natural glow with a wet, glossy eye and a dab of wine color in the middle of the lips.
